found some of my funny

thursday and friday of last week i noticed my ability to make myself laugh had disappeared!  it was so starting to bother me that i had to call my sister (only one that can make me laugh when NOTHING else can)  told her the bad news...
she replied "poor baby...I will call you later"  well never heard from her!

the enternal suffering continued thru the weekend.  I would find myself getting very bitter because my life sucks if i cant laugh at it.  So many jokes told to myself, so many times made such a shitty day so much better....
instead i found myself talking randomly and constant to those around me.  sometime reminiscing like some old fool.  made myself cry thinking about the next kid that will leave for faraway lands (chicago --> atlanta is far yall)

really miserable with mr einstein (cause he always lightens my moods you know)

well it came back to day while i was outside on my new deck--- surrounded by windows with out glass, and shutters bolted together as a wall to avoid direct neighborly gawking!

and the 'rock n' roll star came out.  He is married, has since cut his hair and builds things like herb gardens from kits at home depot (we cant all have my son in law in the house!!)
and buys wood chips and little tykes stuff (sandboxes and picnic tables)
He is trying so hard to fit into suburbia~~ that it makes me laugh!! and that is all it took.

This character is all made up in my head, his stories are all made up in my head.  I have no idea what his real life is like ~ probably as boring as the rest of ours!  But when they first moved in they were young (late 20s early 30s)  He had wild curly shoulder length hair  - she is still a very attractive blonde but i have nothing to add to that~~ B*O*R*I*N*G

I like the made up neighbor stories and i hope someone is doing a few for my house as well.

he so obviously loves his wife and kids but misses the occasional jam session-- i have seen him twitch when we have our radio up a little loud some times i turn it up louder just to see if it will send him over the edge--
my Einstein  doesnt get it...i think he is a tad jealous of my made up friendship--he keeps wanting me to admit he is an accountant some where "only if his wife insisted that he work for her dad so they can live here"
ok how about an astronaut, "bla no never-- way to conservative"  I want a rebel living  behind me! yeaaaa
will keep you posted on the rockin roller--- he is out taking photos of his twins, he just loves his matter what he does to make money~~~

didnt like that first post anyway

shezz had a post, but the internet gods said no!
so i will show you - Detox salad with a honey lime vinaigrette dressing. oh so ummy! lots of lemon water with a splash of tea for some flavor
(we wont tell you how the entire bag of double stuffed Oreo disappeared as well!)

My einstein started redoing the bathroom ceiling oh about 2 months ago...after "thinking about how to do it" for oh at least one year...  and apparently it didnt work.  That is wood glue on the ceiling that was in fine condition 2 months ago (it does look like baby poo but it is glue : - )
This morning i had to make it thru a maze of 2x4's that are holding the new ceiling in place (oh gods of do it yourself please help him)
meanwhile the ceiling that needs fixing is  ummmm untouched and maybe that is better-- i will hire some one to fix it while we are work and it will be like an elf has been here!

Meanwhile--some wonderful son in law built a deck for me!!  of course he had some FABULOUS help!!  these 2 are a fun couple to be around

and last but not least.... Alisa Burke was there to encourage my hand in the art--- now dont be disappointed, it took alot to do that!  will stir this pot a bit more this week!

saturday morning magic

these mornings have a routine all their own to be sure.  they are very quiet, and i am very alone. (seem to be the only one that cant sleep past 7:30 am around here)
but they are very much like my jewels though.  and I treasure them.

  • get my coffee 
  • ignore the cats a bit longer
  • grab my laptop
  • note pad, and pen
  • and imagine what if i could get it all done today 
  • grocery, cook, clean, create, renew a room, decorate to bring on simplicity in life style

Here before the day unfolds there are so many possibilities; yes this will be the time where i find all the right stuff, stir my own creative juices and show the world... i am orderly planner, artist with food, paint, home making, food and even with lists!! and find the time to get everything done!
exercise, cook, shop, even host a dinner....but certainly be better prepared for the coming week~
did i forget laundry! whoops and do the laundry AND put it away...
stay tuned to see what actually becomes of the day and its magic!

artist in metamorphosis

you know the itchy, frustrated feeling of thinking the idea is great and all you need to do is get it down on paper- and then you get the paper and pencil together the move so nicely along but then there is a screeching halt! a road block and AHHHH!

flip thru inspiration, wonder if you will ever make the time to listen to and watch the videos so that i can learn more. I paid for them because i really want to learn but then ....home i sit with einstein and watch tv and doodle the same old doodles  nothing new or fresh....

then creeping around on fB i found an old "friend" and she looks so like better than she did 40 years ago that i havent sent her a friend request.  but maybe i should tho so i can meet her plastic dr! cuz he is good!

several reasons

several reasons come to mind when i think of why i wish my kids stayed in town and loved marietta and me and never want to go any where else....ok i dont REALLY want them to be that way but....
one little girl (of 19) on her way to visit her bff 4 hours south of her college town has a blow out!! and thank all powers that are and were because other than freezing in fear she was not hurt! got her tire fixed and now on her merry way again (both of us feeling the truth of our venerability!)

Meanwhile another is on the other side of the country touring the wine country and preparing to celebrate his 30th with NO family around!

Thank all GODS for cell phones, that are cameras, and for google maps and safe journeys
