As I sit waiting for my oldest, I think I should have brought my brackets – men’s and women’s NCAA basketball. Or I should have brought my lap top. I could be writing. Instead I am scribbling words on a magazine subscription card. I just heard the weather forecast on the radio. I am thrilled!… Continue reading The Tulips
No, it truly is not spring yet in upstate New York. Mother Nature, as usual, is being a tease and the weather has seemed almost springlike. Yesterday, I walked down Edson Road so that my round trip was 3.2 miles. I took over 50 pictures as I was taking the new camera for a walk.… Continue reading A Sunny Spring Walk
As those of you who visit often might recall, I am doing a year long workshop based on Mary Todd Beam’s book Celebrate Your Creative Self. I am tad bit behind the group but was catching up by doing a painting using sand in gesso. I agree with Todd Beam in that the one thing… Continue reading Sand in Gesso

Thankfully for you, you are not where you can hear me singing that out loud! I woke up this morning, on my own, well before my alarm was set to go off. It is absolutely beautiful out today! The sun is shining. It is 7 am and it is already 45F out (not a big… Continue reading Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!
Do I dare tempt fate? I have managed to clear a space in the laundry room – no small feat – and want to bring in from storage the boxes with spring/summer clothing in them and swap out the winter items. What happens when I do this? Unfortunately, history has proven that I end up… Continue reading Do I dare tempt fate?
Spring is coming. At least, that is what the calendar is telling me. The vernal equinox is on the calendar as being this Wednesday, March 21. The big question is will it actually come to the northeast. My daughter was home on spring break last week. She was taking pictures on Sunday – the second… Continue reading Spring is coming
