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.

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

Happy April and AtoZ Begins Today and it’s Letter “A”

Yay, yay for AtoZ…My theme is the Artist’s (i.e. husband’s) original artwork. I was worried I would not have enough original paintings to get me through the alphabet, but after I started adding to my media library…No worries, I have plenty !!!

My Husband (the love of my life) The Artist <3

Today I will start out with a short bio on the Artist…He is my husband of 42 years. His day job is a suit in the city selling commercial title insurance w/an MBA in finance, because we like to eat and live indoors. He is not a starving artist. He paints at night after work. Sometimes I’ll see the light on in his studio at 1/2 in the morning. Some day when we can retire, it will be out to the Atlantic Ocean where we can set up shop and sell his painting’s and he can paint more. He gets his inspiration from the Sea.

The letter today is

From Mz. M Blog

Today I will feature one of my favorite painting’s from the Artist. He painted if for me and the title is “(A)pples in a Basket.” I just love it. It hangs in our kitchen and whenever I look at it, I think of him. I remember him painting it and I had no idea it was going to be a gift for me. I will always treasure it <3 .

Apples in a Basket

I especially enjoy this one in the fall…Enjoy All of his painting’s are available for purchase over at Handmade by Amazon…Link below…

Good Luck AtoZer’s…I’ll be following <3 Happy Spring

Happy Tuesday…

The snowstorm didn’t happen, at least not here…Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now Spring still has a shot at coming sooner rather than later. I missed Monday’s Masterpiece post yesterday but here I picked out a few of my favs <3 .

Snow Leopard
And the Tiger’s Come at Night

Masterpiece Monday/AtoZ Theme Reveal

A new challenge and this is one of my fav’s of all time, AtoZ Theme Reveal I’m pretty sure I haven’t done this one before. I have chose the Artistst’s Artwork. Having been pretty much home for the last year, thank you Covid19, not…The husband has been able to do a lot of paintings. I’m pretty sure I have A to Z in the paintings. Will be looking forward to this challenge. Here is the latest one he is now working on…

Old Port/Portland, ME

We lived in Portland, ME for a short time and hopefully we will be able to get back their. It is a beautiful place and we both want to live their again…I know the weather and winter’s are quite the challenge but we are born and raised Chicagoan’s so we know the drill. I have most of his painting’s named so it should probably work out well. I’ve kept the names rather simple. I might add that all of his work is for sale (a bit of self promotion) which I hope is allowed. I also have a widget on the right of his artwork, “Elan Creations” which will bring you to Amazon Handmade.

I hope you will enjoy the artwork. He is a very talented artist. Never took a lesson at all, The Artist Wife <3 .

March’s Masterpiece…

Good Tuesday morning blogging family <3 Hope everyone had a great weekend. Our Chicago Blackhawks split the games this weekend. Patrick Kane got his 400th goal so that was fun to watch. Still no Toews though… Wonder what’s up with the Captain.

My rose did not make it through the snowstorm 🙁 The other one didn’t do much better either..

This was before the snowstorm and what it looked like through January …I think some music would fit nicely here…

My Yellow Rose

The painter finished his Potatoe Eater’s/Vincent Van Gogh’s…It turned out really well don’t you think 😉 ….

The Potatoe Eater’s/Vincent Van Gogh

He now has been officially published in the February Edition of Inspirations/Illinois Arts Council Agency…Galena Center for the Arts <3 .

That’s all for today…Blessings <3
