What’s Up?

We’re participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop sponsored by The Cat on My Head Blog.  Join in if you want to…..




The Boys love to play “Made Ya Look” with  me  Either they see things that I don’t or they just think it’s funny to make me look at the ceiling in alarm.  Nothing visible to me, but it always works…. Just in case there’s some creature hanging from the ceiling, I can’t resist looking when they do.

So the selfies above are two of their favorite Made Ya Look photos. And here’s a painting I based on that photo of Knuckles.

Have a great day.

Update: Our Life so far in 2017

Just in case you have been wondering why I haven’t posted lately, I decided to give you a little update.

On 2/2/17, I thought I had caught a cold or the flu.

… Went to the doc, rested a few days and hoped for the best.

…Unfortunately, the cough got worse and led to gagging, so I couldn’t eat anything but liquids.

…Long story short, February and March consisted of endless days of sitting on the couch, staring at the walls and medical appointments. It turned out I have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) rather than a cold or flu.

…With the problem identified, I am feeling better and learning to eat again. 

So, unfortunately,  I accomplished nothing during February, March and the first half of April. — and, as you can see from the picture above, Bugsy and Knuckles were more than happy to join me in my inertia…  Now, we are setting about to regain our stamina and to return to our projects




And blogging……here we go and here’s to a NEW BEGINNING….

…MORE soon

Life Stands Still…


Christmas is Just Around the Corner

Are you ready for Christmas? I am… and yet, I wait. Do you do the same?

What I mean is….it seems that when something big is coming up — like Christmas or a trip to the dentist — I sort of rush to be ready for the event, then, once ready,  close down until it’s over.

With the dentist, it’s just the morning of the appointment that I spend sitting and waiting for the appointment to be over before my day starts.  That’s not so bad. Just a lazy morning watching tv.

Christmas, however, is another deal altogether. I’ve been ready (and consequently waiting) for Christmas since Thanksgiving. Yet, I continue to wait until it’s over to re-start my daily life.  What is that about?  Do you do the same?

And while I’m waiting, I dream up new, life-changing goals to be addressed once Christmas releases its hold on my life. And, the day after Christmas, I end up overwhelmed by my list of goals… LOL  Only 3 more days to go…

I’ve never found a cure for this. Suggestions?
