Time to Get Up

Oh my!
Oh No!
I am NOT ready for this.
I can't believe my 8 weeks of summer downtime have already rolled right by and now I am beginning another new school year.
Some time in my life I will get to take September off and enjoy the rest of summer. But I am happy to have a good job that I like. (I just like being home all summer even better!)
I spent my last day home doing just what I wanted to do. Paint play, reading on the screen porch, taking a long walk with one dog while the other was at doggie daycare, eating a big slice of lemon cake.
Linking this page to Art Journal Journey. This months theme is Time.
The words are part of a song. Not sure if its a kids song or what, but we used to sing it to my daughter when she had to get up as a kid. We would sing "Its time to get up" but I left off the its on this page.
My background is a Gelli print on printed paper. I used quite a bit of stamping, painted the sun rise, added the stamped and distressed clock, some gears and the back to school words from a flyer that came in the mail.
Going to keep this short. Seeing I goofed off all summer and never went in to my classroom at all, I want to get an early start today.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is so expressive and looks really wonderful!
I feel for you having to let go of your summer and getting back to a schedule.
Balance is such a tricky thing.
Wishing you a great new school year!
