Questions

Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide?  What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say?
********************************************

I guess I normally don’t speak about my conservative morals & values b/c they aren’t likely to align with today. I don’t really hide them, it’s better just to keep your cards close to the vest. The people that really are important in my life know what they are and that is all that matters. Actually all that truly matters is me, but whatever. I write in my Common Place book quite often and one of the entries way back on February 16, 2013 was

Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?
*******************************************

I suppose that’s all I ever do is break the rules. The question I have to ask myself is who makes the rules?? Isn’t that why rules are made to be broken ?? I don’t care about these wordpress settings that keep changing and altering mid post, whatever…ugghhhhhhh

Are you  also  afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders?  (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead).
***********************************************

Spiders just creep me out. I mean how can you be afraid of something so small…Just smash it with a shoe or your foot. But whatever you do, don’t have your husband kill it b/c he hates them worse than you do and 9 x’s out of 10 he misses and it disappears under the bed!!! :0 Ahhhh OMGGGGGG

Do you think time goes faster as you get older?
***************************************************

I’m certain it does. Think of your life’s timeline as a roll of toilet paper…At the start it is big and bulky and takes some coaching to come down. When it gets to the end of the roll, well it just spins out of control right til it’s empty 😉 Am I right ??? You know I am 😉

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)

Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month.

Monday’s Masterpiece…

Basket of Apples

I really don’t even have to say anything about this painting except it is one of my fav’s !!! The Artist painted it for me ( 😉 i.e. the husband ) It’s a cloudy, cold and rainy Monday but I have this beautiful painting to look at…I hope all of you had a great weekend and blessings on your week <3.

Remember any of the Artist painting’s can be purchased by contacting me or on our website Handmade by Amazon

Two for Tuesday…

Happy Tuesday, blogger’s…It’s always a little harder getting going after a 3 day weekend but I’m up and starting the day. After the 4th a sense of urgency comes on and I feel like, “Summer’s over Mr. Nightlinger 😉 .”

The Artist was busy painting this weekend. I’m really enjoying these past oil paintings. I have already have a spot for them in our home. Don’t worry if you like them, they are on our Amazon Handmade acct. for purchase (at least the pair is) . I still have to load, “Storm Front”.

Also getting busy on my planner/planner area. I’m not even going to post until I’ve got that under control b/c quite frankly it looks like a hot mess…No bother though, I’ll get it together and it will be beautius for sure <3

Since it’s 2/2 Tuesday I thought I’d put up a couple of songs…The first one always makes me smile because I remember times from years gone by where this song makes me feel this way, only I’m not living in their radio probably just their head 😉 and it’s rent free 😉 …

How do you like me now/Toby Keith <3

It’s going to be a busy week b/c I only have 4 days to work with…Appts., houseclean, menu plan & groceries, Target run of course, yadayadayadayda…I’ve also got so behind in my, “10 Year Journal” I’m determined to get caught up on it !!! Oh and I’ve got to fit a mani/pedi in there somewhere, ahhhhh 😉 . I know, I’m spoiled. It’s the husband’s fault. He’s a great guy <3 and I love him to pieces <3

My second choice for my song today is, “Perfect”. The husband and me always give each other songs and he gave me this one. He said it reminds him of us b/c we were just kids when we met and fell into forever with each other (he was 20 and I was 16 😉 ), 42nd wedding anniversary this year… Together 45 years, OMG <3 .

“Perfect” Andrea Bocelli & Ed Sheehan <3

Have a great week and get busy…Summer’s over Mr. Jebediah Nightlinger 😉 …

p.s We use to do Community Theatre every summer and I came across this picture of one of the shows we did…How did you think the kiddos became professional dancer’s, singer’s, musicians ??? It wasn’t by accident, Mom and Dad had a little something to do with it. Uber talented family, started with my mom 😉 and everyone has the DNA…I was a piano player and the husband is the Artist (not his day job, OMG starving artist, I don’t think so 😉 ) …Even though they all took a different direction, they were amazing on stage performing, of course I may be a bit prejudice. 😉 …

Monday’s Masterpiece

Good Monday morning <3 Hoping everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July…The Artist and me had a wonderful weekend…Road Trip out to our fav places from back in the day 😉

Then on Sunday the 4th was a chill kind of day w/the Artist painting and me planning…Love, love, love to plan. Today will just be a reset kind of day where we keep wondering what day it is 😉 Does that happen to anyone else on these 3 day weekends ???

The other painting he just started yesterday, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a fav of mine !!! Don’t forget you can visit our Handmade by Amazon site and purchase any of his amazing artwork…Just follow the link <3

The weekend started out really great with me and the granddaughter getting our hair done, Chic Filet for lunch and then of course Starbucks to top off the fun day…

So much fun at the salon…Shout out to our forever beauty stylist…Mz. Lisa <3 Thank you so much for making us beautiful again <3 . Oh and I can’t forget the flower’s my wonderful husband bought for me <3 .

Back to business this week, a lot of irons in the fire. Starting a major remodel on the home but then by the end of this year it will all be done. I will update with pics of our beautius home. Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer. Busy, busy month w/birthday’s, anniversary (42nd <3 ) and vacation to New Smyrna Beach, Florida Y A Y !!!! Blessings Blogger’s on your Monday <3 … 😉

Write Anything Wednesday…Elan Creations/Contest Update

Hello Blogger’s…I don’t know where the time goes. I definitely need a plan, schedule, or anything that remotely looks like a, “TO DO/TODAY LIST”. I Think I need to blame it on the hus b/c for Father’s Day I updated him to the 21st century with his little techno gadgets, i.e. a new IPhone 11 and a new Apple Watch. Well OMG what a nightmare, but I digress. We got the new phone activated and now we are working on the watch !!! He really looks very cool with all of the stuff 😉 .

Happy Father’s Day

You definitely deserve it and you wear it well !!! It looks great on you <3 We love you dad <3

The Artist <3

Today the 1st piece of artwork is his finished piece of an original by Vincent Van Gogh. The title of this piece is the Potatoe Eater’s…

The Potatoe Eater /Vincent Van Gogh

This was his latest piece that he worked on during this past Spring.

The 2nd featured oil painting for today is an original piece. I thought it was kind of creepy but it really feels like the title. The title for this painting is, “Pandemic.”
