So they say to describe our view out the back door or window to a stranger not sure any who stop here any more are strangers.
You have all seen the barn where I like to hide and do my Art work.
You have seen this place from up on the roof when it is covered with many feet of snow in winter.Most if they have been here have seen the wild birds and pretty flowers too.
So how would I describe this place to a stranger from another world?
Simply stated these days it is my piece of Heaven on Earth

Surgery was April Fool’s Day

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

The last day of March I was not allowed a midnight snack as I would finally go in to have the shoulder addressed.

April Fool’s Day no wonder I was moved up no one else wanted to take a chance I on the other hand was hoping for less pain and more use.

I had PT the next day yes real quick and tomorrow the stitches come out and more work twice a week for 6 to 8 weeks will begin in earnest.

I have a ice cuff I put on after exercises so I have no need for medication.

Life is good!

My son had another show last night in WY and I sat at home painting Roses he had Rose Art to sell and neither of us planned any of it I just decided to chill before surgery with a few hours of painting with a Artist from…

Watercolors

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

I took one, three hour class to see if I would like painting again and to see what Watercolor was all about.  My teacher was terrific and from Russia.  It was during the games in Sochi.

I had signed up on really a whim and on the night I attended, at a local high school adult education course I was not alone.  There were seven of us and one of which was there to learn Acrylics so as she learned so did we.  The class was fun and fast paced as I would soon learn so was the art of Watercolor.

She taught us about resist, loading up your brush with a juicy mix of pigment and how important it was to have lots of fresh, clean water too.

At the end of the class we had new skills.  We had been taught a way with in which to relax and…

Daily Prompt:Linger/First Warmth After A Long Winter

WordPress Daily Prompt LINGER

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/daily-prompt-linger/

The best day for me to linger would be the day the horrid winter,  truly gives up it’s strong hold and allows spring to arrive with all of it’s beauty. 

You know the kind of day, snow banks filthy from too many months of winters cold,  when the earth lets out a sigh and you witness it  begin to drink up the moisture that once would only allow more ice to form. When the frost beneath the yard was just too thick to allow for drainage of any kind to begin.  It is the kind of day I wait so long for.  I hear about it coming on the news and I get ready.  I bring out the table and chair from the barn,  yes we are tough here up in the northeast.

  As the morning arrives I will be ready.  The sun will come up and greet me at the…

Daily Promt/I Believe/ or not so much

Part two of daily prompt

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/daily-prompt-i-believe/

Having got to the age I am,  there are many things others can not make me believe for I have found the truth in living.

That the words our country rises and stands for,  All Men Are Created Equal  is a lie. All you have to do is step out onto the streets of where you live and it is there for you to see,  if you open your eyes.

I believe in my heart there are without a doubt just plain evil people who walk among us, as I found myself married to such a person of ill intent, mostly towards himself as a man but sadly it spilled over onto all he said he loved.

The final one of these things I believe in my heart  to be false is believing it is what it is.  It is not!.  We can change for the better and  for…

Writing Prompts

As I wake to this world I am apart of each day I am struck by it’s beauty.  Now you know I hate the snow and the extra work we need to do in order to clear it from our path but you know I adore the land.

So first off without a doubt I believe in God.  I know without a doubt as it is hard to at times when we look out at all the evil that abounds.
It pains me to see hurt and destruction and so much loss but I believe in God.

I also believe that if man continues to destroy this earth at the rate it has been we won’t exist as a planet for thousands of years to come.

Now they ask for three things we believe in on this challenge and for me I will end on a lighter note.

I know without…

I Stepped Into Spring Yesterday

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

I stepped into Spring yesterday in Boston and it felt so good!
For the first time in just about 50 years I attended the Boston Flower Show without my Mom.

I climbed aboard a van here in NH with 15 strangers and took the 52 mile ride southbound, yes no wheel in my hand, another first!

It was a day full of sunshine and after surgery on Monday I thought about not going with the wound on my face and bruises too but I said the hell GO you won’t know a soul and if they want to stare or look away that is about THEM.  I was surprised by how many actually asked me if I was OK.  Many kind souls I met on my day away from home.

So do you want to see some shots?  They have lousy lighting and I do not have the right equipment…

Skin Cancer

Originally posted on Living and Lovin:

Ok now I know if I was good I would have added photos to get the point across even better but they are just plain ugly as is cancer of any kind.

Please don’t use sun tanning beds.

Don’t roast and roll as I did for years.

Always wear SUNSCREEN!!!!!

8 Stitches on my face

Huge amounts of swelling

Black eye

All are a reminders of how careless I was about my health.
Please protect your children as well.

They did not have sunscreen when I was young but I know I never would have worn it anyway.
I was out for the glow!
Blondes look pretty when they are tan you know what I mean.
Well if I have any more scars than this one down the road I know I did it to myself but it is too late for regrets

So protect your SKIN
