Dragon for Pappa

This is the card my daughter made for my husband for Fathers Day this year. She worked on the card for a long time. I think this took her a couple of months to complete. My husband was born in the year of the Dragon, but I am not sure that is what the meaning is behind the image. I think it is more like my husband comes off as a dragon, but he breathes hearts. Can you see the hearts coming out of the mouth of the dragon? I nearly cried when she gave this to him. The drawing is even more impressive in person. I know she will be an artist to watch. Do you have an artist in your house?

Trasformation Tuesday it is about attitude.

These are my men. A confession is that we are big Apple lovers. No shopping trip is complete with out going to the Apple Store. Even when we know that there is nothing new, we still go into the store. It is like we are paying some secret homage to Steve Jobs.
I know there are many people out there that think everything at the Apple Store is out of Mac Men this world expensive, that is not true. My children are both attending Apple Camp free, and this in not because we own so many Apple products it is because we signed up for the free camp. Yes, that is what I wrote. FREE!

As this is Transformation Tuesday. My Transformation Tuesday is going to my One to One class this week. I am going to learn how to use a couple of programs that I have not learned as of yet. How are you transforming your life?

Mia Monday, Every day is interesting

 My daughter just loves her American Girl Dolls. Recently when I went into her room she was using her iPad as a screen for her dolls. She told me they were watching a movie. Honestly, it looks like my daughter needed to utilize her time cleaning up her room, but I guess the dolls were not willing to help. I had to run to get my camera to photograph this. Is something interesting always taking place at your house?

>Craig Nelson

>This is one of the paintings that I own from painter Craig Nelson. I really enjoy his paintings… warm tones and just an old world feel to the painting. I admired this painting from a far for a while before I purchased it. Every time I went to take a look at the gallery collection this one kept my attention so long. It has a special place in my home. As I decend the steps in the morning I see her on the second floor.

What about the woman in her home? Well, her dress does not scream “field worker”, but her surrondings are simplistic. Is she sitting in the sun to take a break. Her dress is not party elegant but it is pretty. The window reminds me of a basement window. What do you think? I love her hair, and it looks as though it is long.

Craig is not only a painter, but also teaches. I invite you to take a look at some of his other paintings. I am sure you will get lost in the paintings. Just a joy to behold. http://www.craigzart.com/index.html


Ciao!

This is my first attempt at moving to wordpress from Blogger, so bear with me. I am moving my little world here, so my themes for each day will be the same too. I hope everyone that was a follower before will continue to follow me on WordPress. I have to figure out how to add Goggle followers. If you know how to do this please let me know.

Artist of The Week…Craig Nelson

This is one of the paintings that I own from artist Craig Nelson. I really enjoy his paintings… warm tones and an old world feeling to the painting. I admired this painting from a far for months before I purchased it. Every time I went to take a look at the gallery collection this one kept my attention so long. It has a special place in my home. As I decend the steps in the morning I see her from the second floor.

What about the woman in her home? I often ask myself several questions about the piece.  Well, her dress does not scream “field worker”, but her surrondings are simplistic. Is she sitting in the sun to take a break. Her dress is not party elegant, but it is pretty. The window reminds me of a basement window. What do you think? I love her hair, and it looks as though it is long.

Craig is not only a painter, but also teaches. I invite you to take a look at some of his other paintings. I am sure you will get lost in the paintings. Just a joy to behold. http://www.craigzart.com/index.html

>Not So Big…Transformation Tuesday

>

Just as the sun breaks through the fog in the Bay Area, I have broke through my own fog, in so many new ways. I have lost weight, and soon I will make my reveal to you all. I have been eating well along with exercise. Writing in my journal has also helped me see the patterns that I get into, and how I can self correct the old ways and make better ways for myself. One of the greatest gifts that I have had in my life has been listening to Renee Stephens I have been listening to her podcast for many years. If you need help in weight loss, give her a test listen. It will be worth your time.

Much of the time spent doing simple tasks around the house is also spent listening to Renee. Improving myself inside first has made so much sense. I was athletic for many years. Swimming, tennis, and bike riding were really a part of my life for so long. Once I had children things changed. My attitude about life changed. I needed a mental adjustment that Renee gave me. I mean…I am not an idiot! Physical Education was part of my college career. I have trained people, and taught every aquatic activity except SCUBA.

Many people of all walks of life can benefit from what Renee has to offer. Transform your Tuesday with Renee too!

>Mia Monday…Property Hunting

>

Over the past weekend we have been property hunting. Our relator seems to be the perfect fit for us. I added this photo since I have not even downloaded the photos from this weekend and we could not see the Pacific Ocean this time.  The rock by the beach is huge, and it is Morro Bay. All of San Luis Obispo is beautiful.

As many people know we have been looking for the property of our dreams since 07. We really need to find the place this year. My hubby is really starting to run out of fuel to keep looking in one area. The whole county of San Luis Obispo is beautiful, but we have to find the right mixture of features to start our orchard and vineyard.

It really hurts when we come home, and the kids say they are homesick for San Luis Obispo. The ride home is just getting more depressing as we fail to find the ONE. I just believe this year is going to be the year we find it, we purchase it, and move to it! This is the year!!!
