The Cleaning Bug

Sunday is usually the day I do nothing, just laze around, shop
or whatever.  Today I got the cleaning bug, you gotta act on
it when you get it, doesn't come my way very often (lol).  So I cleaned out my winter closet, I have two closets where I keep
my clothes , summer and winter.  So I took everything out , tried
on things, piled up the clothes I wanted to give to the Goodwill 
the things I wanted refreshed by washing, etc.  Just about took
all afternoon, but its done, and now I am ready for winter.  I don't
want it to come at all, but when it does I am ready.

Hey Saturday

I thought I would do the blog before I went out to enjoy my Saturday.  What , am I going to do today, I am going shopping
with the daughter.  I am looking at the sales, there are a million of them on right now.  Going to the Michaels to spend my 50 percent off.  Home to sit on the deck and enjoy the nice weather, and a
bbq of Salmon for dinner tonight.  Okay I am not having the Salmon, because I don't like it, I am having shrimp on the BBQ.  Ok I am off to enjoy this beautiful Saturday....

Danger Curves Ahead

Have you dreamed of being a size 0.  I have not ever had that dream but a 10 would be nice.  I know no matter how hard I try
I will never be a 10.  I am okay with that, because you take what you can get.  Also my 64 year old self  needs to keep a few pounds
on her just in case.  That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Not Just another pretty face

Well I have been busy, preparing some canvases and painting backgrounds.  So I thought I would
show you these.  I did these on blocks of wood, and thought abut making a wall of my ladies .  So far
4 are done.  We will see how many blocks of wood I can find the same size.

I haven't been doing much, except painting, I have been lax over the summer, sometimes you just
need to step back and refresh yourself mentally.  We are going on a little trip to Vancouver in
about a week, just kinda spur of the moment, don't know how long we are going to stay.  Hope
we have good weather.  In Vancouver they have been having great weather, hot and no rain, which
is unusual for Vancouver.

So talk to you soon

Not just visiting

I don't know if the art of the blog is dying a slow death.  I have been away and I have been using
blogloving, which in all truth I do not like.  So I am back and not just visiting, I am going to
give myself 6 months and see if I can build up some readership on my blog..  I think my art has
improved over the past 8 years that I have been blogging and I want to share with you , my tips and
tricks, my new finds, and some great videos.  So onto towards new and better things from me.  This
is the first page in a book that I made.  Not the ragged edges, I wont tell you how to make those, they
weren't in the plan.  So I look forward to sharing my life with you, in all its boring glory.

Keeping on

I bet your thinking I wasn't going to blog anymore.  To tell you the truth I am wishy washy on blogging.  I have been blogging on blog loving, one or two sentences and I like it.  I decided that I could do the same here.  So I am keeping on keeping on.

The Cat came back

The title has nothing to do with my post.
I havent been great posting lately, but
I have been busy finishing up a bunch
of projects that I was committed to
doing. One was a pot that I painted
for a friend.  And a canvas picture
for a lovely couple, (my daughters
inlaws).  They have been away
in Palm Springs for the winter
so I had lots of time to finish.  So
today is the day they come home
and today is the day I finished.
See I really use my time wisely (lol).
Just got home from that giant
money pit Costco, and of course
bought more that I planned for.
Okay I am going to try and post
on a more regular basis.
