Just Stuff

 The day we were going to finish off the bathroom, it poured. There is outside work that needs to be done and it needs to be dry. Bob wants to push out the screws that attach the awning arm, silicone the heck out of them since they are also the offending parts allowing rain to enter, and attach them to a two by four inside. Hopefully next week everything will be dry enough to do it.

 Who knew we lived near a Buddhist Sanctuary. White Sands Buddhist Center  Six of us decided one day to take a lunch and go to visit. I have to say I felt like I was in another world, a peaceful one. Around the center pond there were stone benches and each one had a word etched on it. Wisdom, Forgiveness were two that I sat on. Since then I have been actively conscious of what I say and think and have been working on my forgiveness of past "stuff" and it feels great. It is so easy to be pulled under into negatives, people talking, politics, etc.  Our goal is to travel, artists living the dream and painting and photographing America in our CiCiBlue and three fur kids and we are working towards that goal, bringing in positive energy.  Who knew that a couple of hours sitting in peace and serenity could have this effect. (Probably quite a few people actually and that's why they meditate). Ok, joining in!!

Finished but needs to be signed. I am pleased!

This is my son Jamie and this is our annual birthday selfie. His birthday! I'm so proud of the man he has become and I'm always amazed how tall he is. Wasn't it yesterday that I brought him home from the hospital?

His big sister, Erin, and Jamie at 4 weeks old. Yes, time does fly by.

Finally, one more commission that I finished and pleased with. 20" x 20" oil on canvas. "Sweetie"

If you would like a beautiful portrait of your best friend please let me know. EMAIL ME

That's it for tonight. I'll keep you posted on our preparations for traveling. I'm getting so fidgety!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
