My plein aire painting from Friday 7/15/2011, Seal Harbor, Maine Acrylic, palette knife


The Process:

Summer Day/sleepy day/heat debilitating

Good weather/tourists/helps local businesses


Six Word Journal:

Summer Day/perfect in every way.


Post script…a friend, Barb, is moving and it was time to pack up the kitchen.  She removed the refrigerator magnets and packed them away.

When her son came in the kitchen, he said:  “Mom !  We have a BLACK refrigerator !”



30 Days of  Truth…
Day 16 – Someone or something you definitely could live without.      
I guess after lots and lots of thinking, I could live without tv.  
I’ve done it when living in Japan and Puerto Rico….
and found other things to do.
Growing up, there was not tv in town
until just before we moved to Milwaukee and I was 10 or 11.  
It’s not that I don’t watch it or enjoy it now,
 it’s that I know I could live without it.    
I’ve lived without a land line for several years now…
that was a piece of cake.
If only I had a second cell phone to call my phone
when I can find mine !
As for someone I could live without…
it is the call center person that calls a lot of days just at noon.
They seem to miss that I’m on the “do not call list”.

The hair is gray,

eyes see true..

cataracts are gone !

Mental pauses,

names escape me,

two canes,

a walker with a seat,

my wheelchair goes everywhere..

.“…I’m not getting any younger…”☺.
