This and That on Sunday…

It seems to me…

… there’s a book in this wonderful place where I live.  There are some great characters living here and if I write it, I’ll call it Life at the Home…  Stay tuned for that.

For you bird lovers… and I know that many of you are because you tune into Bird TV everyday.  Anyway, we discovered there are a couple of crows nests in the tree out front (this painting is not a crow… MOL) and there were hatched egg shells on the ground. Did you know their eggs look very similar to robins’ eggs, just a whole lot bigger?

No pics of the babies or anything. But, next year, We’ll watch for them.

In class this week…

… painted a picture of turtle hatchlings stumbling over each other on their race from the nest to the ocean.  I’m hoping to show it to you next week.  It still needs more work and my little turtles sadly looked more like cockroaches than turtles.  They will magically transform themselves into cute, scurrying turtles this week… at least I hope they do.

I’m taking acrylic painting with Frits Van Eeden.  He just returned from the Netherlands where he lives part of the year.  He had a great show there of 50 of his paintings.  Here’s a video if you’re interested….  It’s in his first language, but thought you might enjoy the art.

The Helpful Blogger update…

…next week (Friday), I’ll be posting my first book giveaway on

For the first book, I’m giving away an autographed copy of Eat to Live  by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.  It’s a great book for weight loss or just good nutrition information.  To participate, just stop by and subscribe to the blog.  There’s a subscription form at the bottom of most pages on The Helpful Blogger.

  7. Great move, Bugsy, I love to sit on magazines and newspapers at the palace, just in case a wind picks up in our hall and blows them away…. OK ok so they are comfortable too but thats merely a secondary thing, honest! MOL Great selfie this week, and we love you bird painting!
