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.

    No, I'm not going to do this… hahahahaha chuckle..
    oh okay, I'll do it only because of my wonderful E givers!!
    I pledge to say "no" to nearly any morning appoint. period..
    I've done this a long time, try to get 1st appoint after lunch.. Im awake, not hurried and usually not long a wait period. hope this works.. dc done. "-)

    Cymry, yep, I can say "no" to more now than a long time ago.. but will say 'yes' to some things I wouldn't have a long time ago too.. guess a balance with age and wisdom or maybe understanding. :-) of myself and capabilities.

    Dee, hot here today but many smiles have seen the day! Yes, this is a great DC.

    Wanda.. your humidity with hot is way worse than our dry heat! agh, I wrote you on my last post about the cottonwoods & the boys.. :-) Virginia..humm, we will drive your way, not sure when but we will!

    Kathryn, This sweetie of mine is working on 'book work' I've been to the little shop that has my artwork and cards.. but for our agenda we plan to move a lot of stuff away from where the guys who will put in new AC next week, need clearance in garage and attic doorway area. :-)

    Pic, I'm sure the calf in the chute, laying down.. would've liked to say "NO!" but such is the life of a steer calf. My grandson works this side, does the part that gets lots of kicking, his other cousin, brother to the youngest in other pic.. holds rope, two other guys working the chute, branding, and the two brother's (cousins) mom is giving shots.. can only see a glimpse of her.. the other cousin from lake pic pushes calves to the chute, out of sight here..
    I know I'm not making a lick of sense.. haha..

    The two brothers and my G'son and one other oldest cousin are here to work, plus two guys from TX and one from KS who is from same college as my G'son & the one holding rope in this pic, at back.. that kid is working with these this summer.. gads, and then there is a gal from Australia same college but is the two boy's mom's best friend's daughter.. like family.. going to school here on scholarship.. wow.. now I confuse myself! ha! I better stop before I forget who I am…. heehee

    I walked quite a bit today, well over 10 min, so dc done. :-)
    101 degrees out until around 7PM.. I think it was down around 99 then.
    I walked just to walk extra in grocery store, had my goodies then made a few laps. My Fitbit has helped remind me and it's easier each week.
    Brisk is good too.

    Cymry, Candace, Dee, Wanda.. thank you wonderful gals!! E's much appreciated and does wonders for my smile. :-D
    Cymry, some small adventures.. I'll mention some soon I bet. a good trip for sure!
    Wanda.. See, I didn't stay gone long, I knew you would be here.. I hope you get rested!
    Dee, thank you so much,
    Candace, many smiles to you.
    Bob, you always hand me smiles. :-) thank you all!

    photo; I snapped this one of 3 cousins after they helped work calves yesterday.
    We had finished and I showed them where Lake Marvin is located, only 5 miles from where they lease land for the cattle. They had not been here yet. the big cottonwoods and shade, lake and relaxing a few minutes was good. My grandson on left, doing the talking.. yep, that would be him.. haha..
    They do a great job working together no matter what the job. The oldest one here has done missionary work, building roofs etc in Haiti. I think he's close to 28 now.
    My G'son's just finished 1st yr college & the youngest, middle, is a Sr this yr.
    They are all really cool kids.

      My Husband and I love our morning coffee. It's hard for us to get out to do much at an early hour, like 8am! Sometimes the morning is my quiet time, he likes to sleep in, so I let him.
      Carhenge is a very interesting place! I love that picture!

      Thank you for the E to start off the work week, dear Cherine! I had heard (read) about Carhenge a long time ago, didn't know it was still around. Those car bodies sure last a long time.

      Carhenge is neat. Never knew there was such a place. You expand our thinking kiddo.

    Quiet my mind by looking at an object from nature...
    well, I have several rocks from my trips.. rocks I've found or some even traded for.. the agate rough stone is one of my favorites but it has so many designs and colors and changes of patters that it gets my mind's gears started whirling.. so..nope, not one to 'quiet'. On to the dinosaur bones.. from my folks ranch.. again.. not quiet as makes me miss them.. dad day tomorrow.. nope.. not that stone/fossil either... okay, found one that calms. It's from near a lead mine in S.D. on our trip there a few years ago.. and peace and calm of spaces, wide open skies, rolling grass-lands.. even desert type hills, but the trip was all good and this rock has a yellow-brown-ocher glossy shine of hard with black onyx ribbons running through it. Might be 3 inches long x 1 inch wide & deep in a lazy tent shape. The slickness of it's bottom so smooth but both sides to peak a little rougher with areas of flat flint feel almost. I like the ripples of onyx that run horizontal, like lake ripples. Yes, a good one for quiet and calm.. dc done.

    Cymry, Brenda, Candace.. calm but sure thank you's to each of you for the E's.. for sure lots of possibilities and colors, shapes, sizes! My pleasure to do this DC with your help. :-)

    photo.. black & white of an orchid in bathroom window.. sunlight makes all kinds of shapes.. I can get lost in shapes of shadows & light, clouds and wood grain.. patterns in marble or stones.. yep, I can see over 20 different 'things' in this photo... sometimes I paint the 'things'.. like the bird in flight, perhaps an owl in middle dark of this.. or the hummer above the dark, like it sips from a cup. A large eared mouse looks to the left... a white cardinal head on side of the bottom, haha.. just things in shapes...
    Happy Sat and blessed Sunday to all.
    AC guys came by today and filled both AC's with coolant to get us by till they can put the new AC's in the 26th-27th... (the leaks are slow) something they do for their customers, and if an AC is completely out, they give them portable AC to use until they can fix or replace the old one.

      It's good that you won't be without AC while you're waiting installment. Our temp is predicted to be 108 Sunday - yuck! So glad we have AC!

      I went to a 'Leave No Trace' workshop. They said there was an 'Antiquities Act' that made a law against taking things home. I wondered if it was just in Idaho or National, but I did not ask. The reason I wondered was, geez, there is a lot of stuff on the ground in Arizona! Rusted ...see more

      Memories, memories. Family, fathers, others. Life has its tough moments, but all in all it is good, and wonderful -- depends on how you handle it. Cherine -- you handle it very well. As for Texas in summer with no AC -- I'd rather not. Even swamp coolers beat nothing. Stay ...see more

    Kathryn, Cymry, Candace.. your E's brought smiles, thank you!! I'm late but here!
    Butterfly pose, a little hard but made it.. soles not totally flat together by any means but.. dc done. :-)

    Photo.. hubby & I sit in our kayaks while on a trip along the inside straight of Alaska.. when the small boat we were on stopped for the night, we could take the little kayaks out, 4 of them so all 9 of us on the boat could swap out and everyone glide in the water..
    My legs were pretty straight in this, but I saw this pic so posted it as at least I am sitting.. haha.. and I felt like a butterfly skimming over the water! :-) that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

      What fun. Really makes me want to return to Alaska. I've heard of kayakers in those waters being "played with" by Orca whales -- now that would be triple exciting. I'm not sure I could fit in a kayak -- I think I'd have to leave my legs on the shore.
