TToT and the Cue of the Week!

So somewhere around my birthday I came to my senses and dropped the 30 Day Art Challenge. I realized I was flat out immobilized when I decided to do it and now that I’m up and moving a bit more, it is not the time to be adding things to my schedule (unless they are designed to help with the problem that immobilized me in the first place.) So thankful I have an under developed sense of pride? You betcha!

I put together a collage of things I’m thankful for and I’m glad I did because it made me realize that Joulie is growing on me. It’s been a challenge. She is extremely active and pardon my saying so, she is a huge attention whore! When I put the photos together I realized she was in quite a few.

So from top, left to right:

1&2 Joulie is settling in

3 a client brought me a thank you sunflower

4 Joulie has a few Skipisms….ie she found the loophole around the dog cover for the sofa as she often uses it to cover the dog

5 Joulie is nothing like Skips at the vet. She is calm ,cool and collected.

6. Another Skipism is to perch like Snoopy on his dog house.

7 The garden is growing!

8 It’s nice to see a little white dog on the lawn again…and the next photo as well, which demonstrates how beautiful it is here.

9This is the last of the girls.A decision has been made to let these last ten ladies live out their natural lives then we are closing down the coop. In case you didn’t notice, that’s Daisy Dyllon up in the back!

10 This was my birthday week. The owl came wih several other gifts. She is not a chew toy as are not her cohorts, Lincoln the bear who is about 30yrs old and the squirrel who is over 50yrs old.

And the Six Sentence cue is: suspect

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! I&J

DAY 16: 30 DAY ART CHALLENGE

Cue: Kitchens of the futurefunny-ecard-house-cleaning-creatures

My kitchen of the future

would include a life of ease

because of all its useful things

the one it won’t need is me!

***

I could call out to my robot

” a salad if you please”

Maybe with some Boston lettuce

and a smattering of cheese?

***

After lunch the android maid

would collect and wash the dishes

while my robot butler stands and waits

to grant my other wishes.

***

All the silly gadgets

including the kitchen sink

would be at my disposal

should I require a drink.

***

I’d really need to kick one back

with this futuristic kitchen

because the stinkin’ boredom

of nothing to do but bitchin’ !

THE TTOT:

One of my friends at the library had some old photos of Skips that she sent to me. I really appreciated them. IMG_0153

None the less this little critter is starting to grow on me.IMG_20160805_170901

Joulie had a rough start here with some serious stomach trouble that turns out was related to some other trouble that I wasn’t informed about at the shelter. She has a broken jaw that is still healing (like its only maybe 3 or 4 weeks old). Well luckily we have the best vet in the world and it was discovered what the problem was and Joulie is well on the road to recovery.

I am able to work through my current health issue. soooo appreciative….

Your bud and mine, Lizzi, sent me the coolest little birthday card and paper airplane of good intentions… I would show it to you but I left it at work where I was flying it in my office!

Mr. Wakefield, also your friend and mine, Clark, understands about the wild land we live in out here and what a tasty morsel a little lamby looking dog might be in the night… so he sent Joulie this.IMG_20160813_162642 It’s an LED collar cover! Before you ask…she doesn’t mind the lights…

I am also grateful for many texts and voice messages this week. These are a few…

It’s silly but I am really grateful for washing machines and driers… yahoo!

I love to watch our garden growIMG_20160809_065448

and lastly I am grateful I was able to see my Mom this week after some length of time.

Have a great week!

DAY12: 30 DAY ART CHALLENGE

Cue:a favorite childhood toy

Between clients I often find myself doodling instead of writing notes. Today was a perfect opportunity to try to draw snoopy my favorite wooden pull toy. What I remember of him is from an apartment we lived in until I was five. He had this fairly loud clacker under his belly that made noise whenever you pulled him along. IMG_20160811_212725I tried to draw him from memory and then remembered this amazing tool called the internet where I could look him up. Turns out I didn’t do badly in the recall department. Not a great portrait, but I did remember quite a bit even if I did put the label in the wrong place. IMG_20160811_213001
