GOOD DOGGIES ! ! !

Do dogs feel GUILTY ?

Do they have REMORSES

about things they did that were

BAD, BAD, BAD ?

Hell, yes !

But they sure DO know how to be forgiven ...

Look at the present

they brought me back this morning !

My favorite !

A nicely bleached old cow SKULL ...

GOOD dogs !

GOOD, GOOD doggies !

~~~~~~

I'm giving an art WORKSHOP today

at my son's highschool.

TOTAL NIGHTMARE for him !

Imagine being 14

and having YOUR MOM in your classroom

for 90 minutes !!!

Here are the rules I MUST follow :

DO NOT wear striped socks,

red shoes and short skirt !

DO NOT wear earing

on one ear only !

TAME your hairdo !

And DO NOT act TOO cool !

I'll do my VERY best

looking like a REGULAR mother !

Cross my HEART !

hey, hey ...

OFF WITH NOVEMBER ...

I spent the ENTIRE day outside

walking AND thinking ...

thinking AND walking ...

across fields ....

through forests ...

on tiny roads ...

and bigger ones ...

Yesterday was my day ...

OFF ...

NO project, NO task, NO obligation ...

just walk, walk and walk

SOME MORE ...

On my way up the mountain,

I met my friend Vickie

who was up to NOTHING either ...

Boyz GONE at her place and mine ...

Turns up we were up to NO GOOD either ;-)

We just sat in the middle of the field,

opened a couple of good local ice wine bottles

and

marvel out loud at

IT ALL ...

HOT PRETZELS ...

Missing New York City ...

And hot giant pretzels ...

Baked the second ...

Still missing the first ...

A NIGHT AT THE ZOO ...

This place was a real ZOO during the night !

3 cats running after each other

throughout the house NON-STOP,

rooster cockedoodelling at 3 a.m.

just for the HELL of it,

one cat playing with a MOUSE

while the other one was WASHING the window

his front paws,

wanting outside.

The dogs were RESTLESS

and by 5 a.m. I gave up

and let the WACKY pack out ...

bad>The brainless trio came back a few minutes ago,

their face nicely decorated

with TONS of porcupine bristles

and nicely PERFUMED

à la skunk !

I LOVE MY ANIMALS

@#$^%$*#^+*&**&%@# !!!

HIBERNATION ...

Glitters and CRUNCHINESS

everywhere this morning ...

My tiny frog pond

is SLOWLY transforming itself

into a miniature skating rink ...

Silence seems to be frosted TOO,

crisp and clear ...

The branches in the trees CRACK suddenly,

reminding me to get inside quickly

to toss another piece of wood in the stove ...

LIFE in the cold country-side

is PERFECT

for introspection and conversations

with myself ...

I LOVE HIBERNATING !

I love the other seasons

but really,

DEEP DOWN inside,

I am a creature of SUNNY winters ...

UNA FRIDA OFRENDA ...

There !

FINI !

Here was my offrenda for

DIA DE MUERTOS !

NEW and BIG original canvas painting !

LA FRIDA, UN GATO Y UNA CALAVERA ...

I am the daughter of the sea ...

10" x 20" ...

It is so colorful and vibrant,

perfect for a VERY special day !

I added it to my Etsy shop

but sold it in minutes ...

HAPPY BELATED DAY OF THE DEAD TO YOU ALL !

ALWAYS time to remember the DEPARTED ones

with a smile, NOT a tear ...

SICK BUT FEELING GRRRREAT !

Had to go to the doctor yesterday ...

That flu is gone now

but

I a wheezing like Thomas the Tank Engine ...

Doc says I should slow down,

rest and start acting my age ...

Told the good doc

the problem is

I am getting bored

playing with my Barbies

and

My Little Ponies

and

doodling with markers

in coloring books ...

~~~~~~

Oh yes, I should REST and do NOTHING ...

Doc, are you CRAZY ?

I am filled to the BRIM with energy

and I could paint the ENTIRE Olympic stadium with murals NOW !

I feel great !

I am just VERY noisy when I breathe

but I cover the sound with old FUNKY country music,

Bob Wills at the control !

GREAT, GREAT productive period

happening here

RIGHT NOW

and I must jump on it

and CONTROL the beast ;-)

I REFUSE

to look at it pass

and wave bye bye !!!

A TURQUOISE POEM ...

A fallen from a tree

bird NEST

found on my morning hike ...

Three little FAKE dollarstore

robin EGGS,

delicately inserted in its heart ...

A beautiful tiny

SKULL

carved out of a piece of

BONE

and two incredibly colored

and

textured

ROCKS,

all sent by Scott, El Muerte Santero ...

Gently arranged on the corner

of my battered WHITE desk ...

Make a delicate

and simple

TURQUOISE poem ...

ROBIN EGG BLUE DAY ...

Today is a

TURQUOISE

kinda day ...

OUT with the

orange and purple ...

And PLEASE

keep that red and green

and the HO HO HO's

away from me for a while ...

Today is a ROBIN EGG BLUE day ...

Cheerful YET peaceful,

chirpy AND joyful !

I LOVE my Mondays,

started bright and EXTRA-early !

LOVE to have a full week

ahead of me to create

with NO obstacles to stop me,

NO other tasks to do ...

An ENTIRE week

spent in my studio,

drawing AND painting

AND glue-gunning

AND grinding ...

My little silent apprentice

is BACK in the shop this morning,

enjoying this color

as much as I do ...
