The Birth of a Chicken

March 31, 2009

dscf01101ARTIST COMMENT: Oh! What a cold grey day it was today! It was a perfect day for curling up by the fire and sketching. My puppies were sleeping by my side. … and there was the background noise…. the quiet hummmm of chick flicks playing in the background….. Aaahhh March! The hope of Spring flowers and warm sun is only a few weeks away. For now, I must work!

When you get up in the morning, you look out the window and have no idea what the day will bring. Sometimes you get done all that you plan. Other days things seem to reel out of control and you fall into bed at the end of the day wondering, “what happened?” Still we continue to get up each day and look out that window with hope for a brand new amazing day. The hard days make the easy days even sweeter.

Life gets too crazy at times as we flit around doing this and that. I am as guilty as the next person when it comes to sitting and relaxing. I need MORE of it in my life…. but then again, I sit and then I get an idea and then I am OFF to the races again. Who is bored in this lifetime? The only boredom I suffer is when I don’t have time to do something I want to do and so I sit with nothing to do. I think I need lessons in NOTHINGNESS…. but then I would have to figure out a way to enjoy doing nothing which would lead to doing something!!!

pillow

Oh the pillow of my delight! Is it soft? is it right?
Pillows are so hard to pick out. Sometimes they are only good for a few days, then suddenly they become lifeless. Sometimes they seem right in the store but then you get home, lay your head on them and your head says, “NO, this pillow is to hard!”.

Coffee Break

March 11, 2009

cafe How to start your day with a smile? . . . take a walk and end up at the coffee shop! That brown brew mixed with cream is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. Okay, maybe not anyone, but true coffee addicts will agree. Some may go for the fancy cups of machiano caramel fricazees but not me. My only addition is a small dusting of cinnamon! Bring it on JOE!

Hen Rietta and a Little Peep Squeak

I cannot not resist this little Peep Squeak. Her boots remind me of my own little chicks when they were little. Tiny, sweet, innocent and brilliant!
