Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)
Satisfying Sunday !!! :)
A nice day was had by all .. :) I finished my Hanu yesterday .. and posted him on the page that I got him from .. The owner contacted me, after I posted .. I finished him, I'm not a professional .. if the owner wants him, to PM me the address, and I will spray finish him, and send him out next week .. Well .. the owner and his wife were thrilled for that offer !!! I explained like usual .. I do these for MY entertainment, and if I can add the smiles of others .. even better .. My first drawing is heading out of state !!! :) He's heading to Ohio .. :)
This if my first time picking and doing one outside of my circle of friends .. and I don't want people to think there is more to it .. than just an act of kindness .. so I post it once, and that's it .. it's their choice to PM me ..
I AM happy though .. I found out that it's just MY girl that gives me a block ... I've done her, but they have been hard, and they have been a challenge, and I figured it out yesterday as I was finishing up Hanu, and now that I'm doing backgrounds (or attempting) ... but there was no memories attached to Hanu's picture except I fell in love with it .. With all of the ones that I have done of Puff .. there have been memories attached .. and THAT is where my road block is coming from ...
Just after her beauty spa
The look of death putting bows in her hair for a daddy's birthday present
and while these were early in my "career" lol ... they still were very hard to do .. I remember trying to put bows in her hair so I could take a picture .. Hubby loved when our little ones came back from the groomerr, with bows in their hair ... but this groomer never did it, except once, and she did EVERYTHING in her power to get it out .. lol lol .. My girl was a tomboy .. through and through .. I tried to put bows in her hair, and she faught me every which way .. Once I finally got them in .. she gave me the evil eye for my photos .. lol lol ..
See ... all the pictures I have .. still have strong memories attached, and I'm even tearing up talking about my discovery .. but yesterday I proved that it's only the Puff memories that are causing me problems .. not Maltese themselves .. and that makes me happy .. Now I can start to work toward PUFF drawings .. now that I figured out the actual problem ..
Anywho .. I finished up Hanu, and the owners are thrilled to get him .. At first he told me in the PM to keep it hush hush, but said that he did show the picture to his wife, and she is THRILLED ... well .. So I went back into our original posting and "hid" his comment that he would send the address ... but I didn't get in to hide it soon enough .. his wife made a post that she is so excited .. and he wrote back saying the cat was out of the bag .. lol .. I told him that I pulled Hanu out of my book and he's waiting patiently in line to be sprayed and sealed .. and would be out next week .. I'm trying to make it as comfortable as possible for them .. as they don't know me from Adam .. and now a days' I can understand hesitation for sending someone you don't know your address .. many times; there is a back door situation behind it .. .. and I'm not doing this to open up doors .. I do it for MY smiles, and enjoyment and in hopes that I add smiles at the recipients end .. so Hanu will be my first out of state drawing .. :) My friends told me that I have to sign my drawings (most I do, but there usually is one or two that sneak out without) because when I get famous, they can say they have one of my "originals" ... lol lol ..
Okay -- now that you've dug deep into my psychie .. and all my deepest inner thoughts ..
I started a new one yesterday afternoon ..
Jade (right) and I think the littler one is Jasper (left) and had to manipulate a bit, so they would fit in ... :) .. and I sit in and laugh .. because so many of my scribbles look soooo crazy bad,
and they actually turn out .. this one is so the same .. lol lol lol ..
And then they turn out .. lol lol lol .. So we'll see how these two turn out as I add the black in.. :) lol lol lol should be interesting .. lol .. but she looks like she looked into a set of binoculars, with ink around the rims .. lol lol .. Let's see where these end up ..
I went outside yesterday to water my potted tomato plants (and spray my in ground plants .. even though they really didn't need it that much) and freshen up the birdbaths .. and I looked .. They're coming !!!! WOOHOO !!!!!
My cherry tomatoes are coming in quite well, and I think at least 1 of the regular tomato plants are starting ... WOOHOO !!!! Now to keep my critters away from climbing the bushes .. lol lol ..
I ran a few errands with hubby, and enjoyed getting out ... and came back home.. played some golf, and ended my week with 6 out of 4 days of activity .... Yes .. you read that right .. 6 out of 4 .. 4 days a week is my goal, and I got 6 days last week .. WOOHOO MEEE !!!!!
I finished up another puzzle last night .. and started a new one ..
This new one seems like a sticky icky .. but that's good .. the last 2 went together too easily .. lol lol ..
Today -- I'm a bit apprehensive .. but going over to mom's .. last week was such a "try to find things to say" visit .. I'm thinking that she may want to take a bath today (unless she did it this past week .. ) but she specifically asked if I was coming over on Sunday when I talked to her earlier ... so ... apprehensive (still battle scarred from before the blowup) ... so wish me luck .. :) I'm going over there with an apprehensively positive attitude ..
Wishing everyone a wonderful day .. Learn something new about yourself, and have a lightbulb moment today !!!
Be safe, be strong, be smart, be happy and be healthy !!!
