New Beginnings

Wow. I can't believe that it's been so long since I've returned here. There have so many changes in my life that have left me breathless. Just to catch up a bit, I have moved across the country to the Southwest with the love of my life. We now live in a very special town where you know your neighbors, there are no tall buildings or major department stores and you can buy organic eggs from the mechanic at the local auto repair shop. I now need to plan an hour for a 15 minute trip to the grocery because everyone is so friendly and I always run into a new conversation.

I have been blessed with wonderful new lady friends, actually they are more like sisters. We are all of like minds. Instant connections and lots of smiling.

I am finally home. Content, happy with much inner peace.

This is going to be a new blog. One that reflects my journey as well as introduces and talks about many different things. I hope that some of this resonates with you. Let me know what you think.

Wishing you peace, love and much joy.

Happy Birthday Brad!!!

It's been a bit busy here. We have a new member of the family. Wyatt is an almost 3 month old Schnoodle puppy. He's sweet and smart and quite active. Since this is our first dog ever we are learning as we go. As far as training, Wyatt is doing a great job training us. It's also been interesting trying to acclimate our 2 parrots to the puppy. They have been climbing off of their play perch and trying to chase him around the room.
Also, Cheryl and I have a few pieces each of our art currently being exhibited in a gallery "Arts Unbound" which works only with individuals who are physically, mentally and or emotionally challenged. It's a wonderful group located in Orange, New Jersey. If you are in the neighborhood stop by and see their summer exhibit. They also offer classes for challenged individuals and the staff could not be nicer.
I have been doing some drawing again and will post some pics soon. Wyatt and the birds try to help so it's been quite interesting.
Today we are off to see my daughter in Manhattan to help celebrate her birthday. It is the first time we are visiting with Wyatt so it should be interesting. Anyway, time to take the puppy out, again.
Wishing you peace, love & lots of joy...

It's been a rainy few days but in between the drops I got to play with my new camera. The love of my life bought me a Nikon D60 with 2 lenses. I've been having a lot of trouble with my "bad" hand so drawing and my art have suffered for it. This camera is a wonderful way for me to express myself. I took a walk around the local duck pond and thus you can see the feathered wonders. The duck was a riot. He came right up to me and let me take lots of picks as if he was posing. He took some crumbs from my fingers as if he was domesticated and basically acted like a puppy sans the petting. The goose just looked at me and posed as well. Pretty cool. So now wherever I go, the camera goes. I have been meeting some very interesting folks as well but that's a whole other blog entry. Enjoy your weekend and lookout for the "quackers". Wishing you peace, love & lots of joy...

Shop Is Open!

Our Cafe Press Shop is now up an running thanks to the MAGNIFICENT MS. CHERYL! I am pretty useless with computereze aspect of the store. I can help to make art to fill it but can't seem to do the loading yet. Cheryl has been VERY patient with me and I do appreciate it. The link is to the right so please stop by and let us know what you think. We will be posting lots more images soon.
It's been a very strange week. I think that Monday threw me off more than usual. Saturday the "kids" came by with a bunch of my daughter's friends and grilled and had a great time. They also surprised me with a birthday cake, flowers and a wonderful music card. It was a lot of fun.
I finally got the upside down tomato plant and planter situated. It turned into much more of a project than originally anticipated. S just keeps walking around the house shaking his head and saying how it's just not natural for tomatos to grow upside down. That they have done fine growing upright forever. We'll just have to see.
Been working on a vision board. Cheryl came by today and we each created one. Will try to post pics soon.
And on that note, have a wonderful weekend.
As always, I wish you peach, love & lots of joy...

Memorial Day Weekend

Just wanted to wish everyone an enjoyable weekend. This holiday has taken on a special meaning to me this year as I have a member of my immediate family over in Iraq. As much as I look forward to the gatherings there is never a day when I don't think about Fred who is 20 years old and overseas. Despite your feelings about the war, I believe with my whole heart that we need to at least remember those who are serving as well as those who have passed. So, this weekend perhaps you will raise your glass (or can) and toast our loved ones wherever they may be. And on that note I wish you PEACE, love & lots of joy...

Impromptu Beach Trip

Okay, so today I was feeling really ouchy and barely made it to meet Cheryl to work on the site, etsy, etc. It was so gorgeous out that when she asked "Do you want to go to the beach?" she didn't even get a chance to hit the last syllable. As bad as I was feeling there is not too much that can keep me from the sand and surf. In no time we were cruising down the parkway with the sunroof open (pseudo convertible),windows down and music blaring like two teenagers.
We didn't have much time but enough to do some walking and snapping of a few photos.
Just tell me one thing, how do the "kids" take photos of themselves with their cameras?
Note my attempt.
Wishing you peace, love, lots of joy & sand between your toes...

Journal Pages

I hope that everyone had a nice Tuesday. The weather has been beautiful here today although I didn't take advantage of it as much as I should have. Tomorrow Cheryl and I are planning a photo expedition to a local reserve. Hopefully the weather will be as kind to us.
Here are some journal pages that I did a while back but would like to share.
Remember, comments are really welcome!
Wishing you peace, love & lots of joy...
