How Was Your Monday?

        Mine was filled with thoughts, and phone calls, and seeing my Grandchildren through a tablet world that lets me be in a place I otherwise could not be. I watched My Granddaughter practice shooting her bow and arrow, and laughed as the twin 17 month old boys try to kiss my through the screen, I also played peekaboo with them, And my 7 year old Grandson talked to me about his video game. I am grateful for technology even though it takes a toll on the earth, they are 700 miles away, but I can pretend I am right there with them!

          I didn’t do a whole lot today, we went to bed at 5 am, and it turns out that disc golf can make your throwing arm a little sore at first..hmmmm, whoda thunk!?  So we didn’t play today, but will give it a go again tomorrow. I didn’t cook anything but good ole corn dogs for dinner…I was deep into collecting frogs today! Ha! everyone is playing candy crush, and I am collecting Poison Dart Frogs! (an app, not for real!) But I got some Rare Ones  today!!  So that was what most of my Monday was, I did do a doodle just a little while ago, there are a bunch of people doing 29 faces? and so I made a face! I wonder if I should put them on smaller canvases? do you think people hang them? would they even want them? I cant keep everything I make… house would pop….I suppose I could donate the ones that didn’t sell to a church?I don’t know….what I do know is for some reason I am fascinated with faces for about a year or more now! Now I like doing other things too, but lately faces win! I love doing digital art too, but havent done that in a while either.  Here is where all the thoughts come into play, I WANT to do so many things….I get overwhelmed and do less, I have over many years, collected many tools to do many things, I have a professional wood burner, I have a scroll saw, a miter saw, a Jig/scroll saw, I have collected driftwood staffs from the Tennessee River, I have a dremel, I have been collecting Cigar box’s and I get them free! I have many many things…….so I sit and think about what it is I really want to do today. when I listen to music I see pictures In my head, and I want to create what I see, its like I can “see” the music?  so my choice of music today was   “I Was Here”

and here is my Face for the Day!!
