New Zentangle Pattern

Today was one of those Hurry Up and Wait days. You know the type– you have to rush to get somewhere at a specific time, you’re on time or even (gasp!) early. And then you get to play the waiting game–everywhere you go. After a full morning of this game, I arrived home at about 1:00 because the propane company swore they would be out this afternoon. Well, it’s now 6:30 PM and still no new, full tank. And I rushed home without completing several other important errands. Not a happy camper.

While I waited for the non-delivery, I occupied myself by learning a new Zentangle pattern, called Zenith. I saw it on the Zentangle Mosaic app, and followed the directions. Then I started to experiment with fountain pen instead of micron pen. 

It will take me a while to use this as part of a tile, but I must say that it has possibilities. I’m not sure for what, but definitely possibilities. 

The main thing is that playing around with this pattern (and the picture is only one of the pages I filled fooling around with it) helped me to bring my anxiety level about the propane delivery into check. I became absorbed enough to forget that I was wondering where the blasted delivery person had gotten himself to. 

But now I need to get myself ready for a night out with my husband’s future students. Three times a year it’s meet and greet students and their parents who took advantage of a little island vacation while settling daughter or son into their home for the next few years. 

So pardon me for keeping this short and sweet, and for not showing you a completed tangle. It’s off to play the dutiful wife!

Happy tangling!
