Cheers and Rock on with Your amazing Selves! 💕

P.S. I’m truly not certain what world this fox looking creature that fell out of my circus mind comes from but I’ve an inkling that You, Sir Peter (over at Peter’s Pondering), with Your sweet fox picture, inspired his birth!!! 🤣 Cheers and Thank You!

they call it

we finger-paint our lifetimes

each and every moment

on the fluid, dancing water that is us

raging crashing trickling mirror still raining babbling ebbing flowing All-ways

we reside in one another

from “beginning” to “end” to “beginning” to “end” to “beginning” to “end”…

this gifts me precious laughter

as pages float away on the morning breeze

goose steppin’

rubber neckin’

granny’s in the yard

the treetops have made pudding

and we wish upon the stars

fireflies play tubas

and the river likes to dance

swirling

whirling

twirling

in this autumn night’s romance

cool beans and groovy noodles!

Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

I’m truly not sure who is to blame for planting the “Cool beans!” seed in my psyche so many years ago! But it moved into my brain and had chosen to set up permanent camp before I was conscious of even deciding I’d like to add it to my vernacular! Ah well. Makes me laugh so we remain friends.

Yesterday I went to the art supply store. The sweet, young cashier was very friendly and helpful. As our transaction ended I thanked her and said my beloved, “Cool beans!” She burst out laughing and said, “OH MY GOD! You sound just like my husband. Except he’s from Canada and does You one better. His phrase is “Cool beans and Groovy noodles!”

Now….how can that slice of silliness NOT marry “Cool beans!!!” I think they are already on their honeymoon! I’ll let them stay and decorate their little space of my psyche as they wish. Blame the wonderfully funny Canadian who I’ll probably never meet!!! 🤣

Have a Great One!!!

For those of You who may not be familiar with brilliant Mark Twain’s ‘The Adventure’s of Tom Sawyer’; there’s a wonderful scene in the book where Tom gets in trouble for playing hooky from school. As a punishment his Aunt Polly makes him whitewash the fence. He hates the chore and decides to convince his friends that it’s a great honour and privilege to be given such a responsibility. He ends up charging them money to paint the fence for him! It’s pretty funny!

When my beautiful man brought me this fantastic piece of wood to paint….that story came to mind straightaway. This is what I imagine might have happened had Tom’s friends figured out his con and spotted him off fishing as they worked. I truly don’t remember what he did while they did his chore-apart from collecting the money and feeling pretty amazing about the whole thing; but I sent him off fishing. “Becky” is Becky Thatcher, a young beauty who captured Tom’s heart the moment he saw her and was his first kiss.

Hey Beautiful People!

My lovely man keeps an eye out for boards for me to paint on when he’s out and about. I flipped when he gave me this one because the natural grain in the wood was CRAZY cool! A large round face, the shape of these eyes and an outline of a smile was in the very wood itself. Immediately I knew what I would paint! Actually, she pretty much painted herself; I was along for the very happy ride!

my art supplies are self-quarantining

they must have seen the news

bunched up in the corner wearing masks

they’re all singing the blues

i’ve tried to convince them to come out and play

saturdays I like to post

but they just cower….they won’t come out!

i guess this week’s is toast!
