April 30, 2021 – Original Artwork

I call this painting ‘Purple Rose’. It was done with pastels. It’s a sizable piece but I don’t have the measurements at the moment. When was it completed? I have no earthly idea. I’ve tried to sell it numerous times over the years but I’ve never had any takers so it just keeps hanging around.Continue reading “April 30, 2021 – Original Artwork”

April 29, 2021 – Kayak ownership and all that it entails.

Help!! My husband’s got the ‘fever’. I thought that when he purchased this large piece of molded plastic (aka a ‘kayak’), there wouldn’t be much more that we’d have to invest in. Boy, was I wrong! It’s a pedal kayak and it came with an oar/paddle and a special gadget with wheels (to help guideContinue reading “April 29, 2021 – Kayak ownership and all that it entails.”

I call this photo ‘Whatever It Takes’. While visiting Victoria BC nearly 16 years ago, I noticed this unusual ‘statue’ with a collection box for donations. Honestly, I had to do a double-take! This lady really went all out to appear like a statue cast in silver. It’s amazing to me what people will doContinue reading “April 28, 2021 – Photo”

April 27, 2021 – The Space Between

I am sitting in a space that feels rather uncomfortable at the moment. I am uncertain of my health, of my future, of what is yet to be. There is no doubt in my mind that there are countless others sitting in this same space; there are too many unknowns to believe otherwise. I wishContinue reading “April 27, 2021 – The Space Between”

I took this photo in Pueblo, Colorado. While my daughter was visiting a childhood friend in prison (it’s a long, sad story), I walked around and busied myself taking photos of birds and flowers and whatever I found to be visually interesting. I have no idea what kind of flowers these are but I likeContinue reading “April 26, 2021 – Photo”

April 25, 2021 – My husband, the hobbyist.

It is interesting what you learn about someone when you decide to marry after only dating for nine months. I’m surprised I don’t have whiplash from all of the times I’ve had to swiftly stomp on the brakes each time he would ‘reveal’ another side of himself. Honestly, I don’t believe I could have beenContinue reading “April 25, 2021 – My husband, the hobbyist.”

Squirrels and I go way back. When I was a kid, as a source of amusement, I would place a peanut between my lips and I had the squirrels trained to climb up my body and gently remove it. I know, it sounds nuts! I never considered I might contract rabies in the process. You’llContinue reading “April 24, 2021 – Photo”

April 23, 2021 – Always have a ‘Plan B’.

My husband and I are taking a trip next month. I suspect it’s going to be an annual one. We did it last year and it went so well that we’re going to do it yet again. We’re actually just returning to where we used to reside before we moved to where we currently live.Continue reading “April 23, 2021 – Always have a ‘Plan B’.”

It sold….yippee!!!! What a glorious day it has been! The sale of the boat couldn’t have gone any smoother and we got exactly what we wanted. My husband has mixed feelings about the whole thing but I’m so happy it’s gone. The guy that bought it is an avid fisherman and is so pleased! It’sContinue reading “April 22, 2021 – Photo”

April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures

Life is full of surprises. My husband and I bought our first boat in 2015. Boy, did we get fleeced! It’s not the first time we’ve been taken advantage of because we didn’t do our homework and were totally unprepared. With most purchases, especially the ‘big ones’, I research the hell out of them beforeContinue reading “April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures”
