Hi, I'm an artist, born in Colorado, live in the tip top of Texas , ranch raised, lover of mountains & sunsets, critters & quiet moments, open spaces & the smell of horse hair. I am tickled to have found this site & hope this will add to my path of taking better care of self. :-) My hubby hands me smiles to my heart, my 2 kids bring me amazement & my grand kids are truly delights to my soul. I paint, sculpt and have my own gallery. My friends are the colors in my life. I feel blessed.

    Two reasons to get a good night's sleep??
    1.. So I wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! humm..that may be two.
    2.. A good night's sleep means I feel better all day! less stressed, more focus.
    dc done. and why do I need to keep up with a list.. that will make me toss & turn worrying .. where did I put the list.. ha.
    Dee, thanks so much for the E!! Makes me grin, much appreciation gal. :-)

    pic, one of my pencil sketches of a red hen.. if I would go to roost with the chickens.. I'd at least get enough sleep!! but I may have to wring the rooster's neck if he crows too early! ha

      Hidy Ho, sweet CM. I'm sure you get plenty of sleep and NO, don't make a list However, if you do, you can always use it as a coaster to put your "beverage" on while you are painting -- or drawing - or coloring -- or whatever artsy you've got a hankering do to. Love you, ...see more

      Even if I get enough sleep I'm not waking up bright eyed and bushy tailed! LOL!! That saying always made me think I would wake up as a squirrel... ;-)

    Debbie, thanks much for the E! I've done this one, it's like I feel the need to march and listen to Dr Zhivago movie.. then sip vodka or my Russian Caravan tea, and no vodka in sight eve... so.. the hot tea! :-)

    I'm no where close to caught up.. will just write fast and keep up with you who stop by.. I like seeing what's going on in other parts of the world of DC.. :-)

    Pic, a young gobbler stretches his legs out on way past us, (in vehicle)… I snapped this one quick.. and caught him before he dived into the brush..

    I do this 'lean through doorway' sometimes just because.. don't know why.. something to do I guess.. will do it again shortly, dc done. :-) a good pull to shoulders and all over.
    Wanda, thank you gal for the sweet E! drive careful!

    Day spent on errands and getting a few goodies for … what-ever we'll call it,..?.. lil travel trailer, maybe we'll name him, the Traveling Man after my rooster collage..ha… I rechecked measurements and snapped a few pics at the RV place. They have him in the 'check-out, get ready to go area, plugged in and water filled.. anytime we're ready we can get it next week, but I think Sat.. after I bring home paintings from Dumas show (my one person show) . At least fewer to come home than what I delivered. (grin)

    Pic, snapped today while think about decorate/pack, Travel'n Man (maybe) gets checked out by shop before we pick him up later this coming week..
    I can lean out this door at back, and breathe outdoor fresh air later! :-)

    Dee, Kathryn, Wanda.. you sweet fun gals.. thanks so much for the E!
    To mix things up today maybe I'll make up a pic-nic style supper for tonight and we'll eat on blanket spread out on floor, salmon, sweet potato drizzled with real butter.. salad.. wine, cheese.. .. so, I will fix it normal but we'll eat totally different.. never had a pic-nic on our floor before… :-) or maybe I'll just swap sides of bed with hubby… that would be easy… ha

    Pic is of cool twisted tree in the canyon, I love the twists and turns, ohh I hope I haven't posted it here before.. I know I have it on my FB page.. well, anyway.. it's a black and white.. a different way of looking at things. :-)

    Maybe we'll name the new camper.. Giddygo, Giddupgo, or perhaps "Tug".. maybe we just have to get to know it 1st… okay, off i go, need to find a few things for it.. color… bedspread, different curtains.. round up some kitchen stuff from this kitchen… list coming up.. :-) Of course, my art bag is always ready to travel..

    Vicki, Wanda.. thanks gals for the sweet E! Like both of you.. I taste most of my food as I cook.. I mean..really?? who doesn't check to see if it needs more salt..pepper... garlic.. something... or needs tossed to the varmits before anyone knows about it! hahaha... but as for genuine 'snacking' like eat half the potato chips, no, I do not do that. dc done! but.. I might eat that one toasty rolled over double chip... if I spot it... I have a cut up jicama in a container to munch on right now. :-)

    pic, one I caught of dove on wire, horse in background.. and just like the dove on wire.. I will walk a straight line when fixing my meal.... unless I see something really yummy.. then, like the dove.. I'll be lost in a flap of wings!

    okay, for my special folks who sent me take care of self notes.. Thank you!!!! I slept great after finally got there.. woke and opened one eye.. thought to self.. yes, my eyes open, my neck moves, I'm alive and.. no icky feel... ankle back to normal 2-3 pain which improves as I'm up thru day...

    The stinging ache, misery tie me in bed and just hit me with hammer steven king movie... that was gone! :-D ohmygosh, I hate those days and do not want any of you or yours to have those days!!! Wanda.., all of you.. hear me!

    Home portrait delivered today, cards delivered to lil shop.. and I was feeling so cruddy I didn't mention it, but Wed. I had found a small trailer for hubby to look at.. we've looked, off and on, for a few months.. but the place is one that my son does all their taxidermy.. they are largest RV place in Amarillo.. and.. short story shorter.. they had a Micro Minni Winnebago bought by couple in their 80's two years ago, they stored it in this company's storage place (enclosed) and never took it out!
    The gentleman passed away late last year, wife needed it gone so they bought it back from her... not a thing they usually do... and.. since my son does their taxidermy and they seem to like him..a lot.. they gave us a super great deal on it! less than 1/2 orig price... it still has the stickers on the stove and gadgets... we pick it up and learn how to use it next Sat.. this Sat was too early for us to have shop ready to store it and we want to pick it up from there and go straight out to the Palo Duro Canyon for 1st trip... so.. next Sat. :-)

    I think this little camper will be super! art shows, might even do a few farmer market shows now, (my art/cards).. and of course.. a few week-end trips to state parks!
    Now I need to name him..her.. not sure which it will be, felt comfortable as soon as stepped in.. really little but we want that... maybe a name like... 'Wheelie', 'Wheeeely,' maybe a new 'Artbox', like the old tiny motor home was called. My tags were ARTBOX, but too hard to crawl in nose over cab nowdays.. just outgrew or out-aged that little old Toyota Sunraider I guess... now to sell it.

    goodness.. look at me blab blabble... I laid around icky too much last night!
    well.. all is good now.. or at least back to normal achy.. :-D
    Wishes for a wonderful Friday tomorrow to all!

      Ii don't think peanut M&Ms count as a snack. Daughter says they are one of the basic food groups. Stay well, dear Cherine.

    Dee, Vicki, Wanda.. thank you all so much for the E.. I have green tea now.. no.. it's peppermint.. but will do green later.. maybe.. came home from art galleries and am sick pup.. so will not check anyone tonight so so sorry,.. just feel freezing cold and yyuuccky! hubby made me the tea… I have pears and cottage cheese. maybe I'll try that.. hugs all…
    Bob.. love your comments.. thank you bunches.. all of ya'll who write a bit.. thanks..I enjoy all!!!

    pic is of prickly pear cactus just up our hill, can see it from garage, no blooms yet.. too early. the 'pears' on these after the bloom, some folks eat. As a kid on ranch, we would take a torch burner and burn the needles off cactus in years of draught.. then cattle ate these green pods too…. I like the sunlight catching it's britches on these thorns, gave me time to get my camera and catch the shot..

    okay.. going to slow myself back to couch or bed..and covers!! … wishes for a wonderful Thursday!

      So sad you are feeling yucky. Please take care of yourself.

      Nice cactus photo -- hope you follow-up with another when they bloom. How neat to be using a torch to burn off the thorns. That/s a new one for me.

      No yucky allowed lady. Hope you are feeling better today and your Sweetie is babying you. As for that cactus it looks like it would hurt real bad if you ran into it! Love you Sweet Lady
