The Four Agreements....

I borrowed this from a friends FB page...though it was worth posting....


1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don't take anything personally.
3. Don't make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements.

Has it really been this long....

I can't believe it has been four months since I have posted! Where does the time go. I guess it has been a busy/hot summer. Today, a crisp 54*. I haven't drawn or painted anything in a while. I am crocheting, or trying too. I still want to draw, and will get back to it. I need to carve out some time in the day to do it. I just joined a gym again, and hoping that it will wake up my sleepy metabolism, get some oxygen flowing in my blood and increase my creativity. I do feel better already....I believe its true that energy begets energy...

Rain, rain, rain.......

This is the second weekend in a row, (next weekend looks the same) RAIN..... Yes, its nice to lay back in bed and listen to the rain pitter patter on the roof above, enjoy my morning coffee...and know that, for now, the yard work must wait. We added a deck to our little house this past couple weeks, and it adds a sense of calm...sitting out on it and enjoying the view above the yard. Chickadees darting in and out of their house feeding their babies, robins bathing in the fish swimming lazily by....trees filled with the songs of spring....

Cotton knitted swatch

One of my New Years resolutions was to learn how to knit
I can tell just by looking at this I did something wrong on
this knit side.  Half way down, on one row, I must have wound
the yarn around the needle the wrong way, cuz the *V* is
crossing different than the rest of the rows....I am learning....

This is a sketch I did of our dog Mac last year. (sorry) He had surgery yesterday, awaiting biopsy Monday.  My mind has been nowhere but on him...he is still recouping, and gradually gaining his strength back in his hind legs...very heart watch him struggle so...if you read this, please say a silent pray for him...we thank you...

This will be my second year doing thing-a-day. Starts on Feb. 1st. It has been awhile since I drew anything...not to say I have to can be any *thing*. Since I have a lot of interests, who knows what I will come up with. Last year I drew all but one day, that was a photograph I took. I want to draw, because it will force to me live the courage of my convictions...stay tuned.
