My friend "Boneman" (Berry) at http://walkingonalligators.blogspot.com posted some of his paintings on his blog a few months ago that he was entering into a competition.
I saw one that I liked very much and I asked him about it.
We worked out a price- and the painting arrived this past Monday! I was so thrilled:)
This is kind of a Christmas present to myself. The painting now hangs in my office and I hope to get it framed in the new year. It's a permanent reminder to me of how very real and special each of you are~
Thank you Berry :)
(And I'll bet he has a few more if anyone is interested :)
My sweet dog and his bride might be over for a visit- or we may meet halfway- we are still working on the details :)
My pet name is ……Oh- the best one so far has been "Sunshine"- the worst was something I can't write here- this is a kid friendly blog!
The silliest one in high shcool was "Baby Pop"- which came from a Beastie Boys song when I was 17. (not to be confused with Barney's "Baby Bop"- ICK!)
I was born on the 30th day of May, 1969- around 8am. 8am is still a lovely time to get up- I think! :)
My magic is in the food I cook, the things I create, and letters I write~
I can change my mind about something in a flash- and not worry about it :)
I was once approached to be in a beauty pagent, when I was 8- and I won! :)
I am a die hard fan of the old Winnie the Pooh(Milne), C.S. Lewis, and Robert Louis Stevenson...and I adore George MacDonald fairy tales.
I love cloudy days, thunder storms, bubble baths, large ancient trees, the sound of the ocean, the mountains in the fall, candle light, a clean kitchen, fresh sheets on the bed, to be on a boat on the lake at sunset, or sunrise, the sound of my nephews laughing or saying my name..."Nonna", my children saying good morning, or good night, or thank you- or I LOVE YOU MOM...
A breezy country home- full of comfortable furniture- and looks lived in (and believe me, mine does!)- books everywhere, chocolate hidden in special places for an emergency, an abundance of tea bags- English or Irish breakfast :) A bikini wax, a trip to the hair salon, and a footrub by a pair of strong hands that love me.
I love alternative music- that combines the sound of nature with bells, and harps, and wind instruments~
I think my husband is strong, and brilliant, kind, and trustworthy.
Viggo Mortenson as Aragorn was sexy beyond any man I have ever seen...except for a Marine I saw last summer at the beach- but I digress ;)
I dream of dancing with abandon, in the beach, under the brightest smiling full moon with my soul sisters… (this I copied from Lux- but it was too good, and too true for me not to include it!)
5 is my favorite number ;) (ok, so I added one more! :P)
I have one more blog to post before Thanksgiving, and then I think I'll be away for a while- but I'll be reading up on all of you! :)
