What Race am I? Human….and You?

I had a bout yesterday of wrestling with antique furniture to make it go into my attic, I have those fold down stairs, and I waited for my husband to leave, so that he wouldn’t grumble at me for being stubborn, but Darnit! I wanted that stuff to not be in my face!  Well….the foot board hopped up there and snuggled in, but the headboard? It was like a dog holding onto the door frame  as you are trying to get it to the tub…..I pushed…..I pulled….I tipped AND turned……did it go in the attic? NOPE. it went in my bedroom closet, and all the stuff in there went in the attic.  To say the least, I was DRENCHED in sweat, and a bit irritable and sore. So In lieu of, I didn’t post last night.

Today? I was just as actively Creative. I decided, AFTER my husband went to work, that I would do the mowing so he would not have to do it this weekend, so of course I have 3 Big Beautiful Rescue doggies to clean up after every day….eehhhemmm…..After that deed was HALF done (it KILLS my back to bend that way too long) I filled the mower with gas and took it to the Front yard, I  mowed half my front yard, and happened to notice that my neighbors grass was getting pretty long, Which is pretty unusual, so since I was out there anyway…I decided to go ahead and mow theirs too. During the summer they had mowed ours more than once in the front, also Their nephew had come over to help my husband dig up an unwanted bush. What are neighbors for? right?  In Today’s world of technology and computers, not many people know their neighbors anymore.  I remember when there was a multi-state blackout in 2003, Do you know that it was the first time I had even SEEN some of my neighbors?  Anyway I found out her name and told her mine, as she tried fervently to pay me for mowing her lawn, I refused all the same. She was so grateful and said that she was worried we didn’t like them because they were Hispanic, I told her….To me? your Human just like me, and we should be able to lean on one another from time to time!  I Told her not to feel guilty, but to pay it forward, If everyone did that? what a world we would live in, Eh?

Other than the lawn, and a much needed shower afterward I didn’t do much else, My Wonderful Baby Boy, Max, decided to bring me some Dinner…..uggghhhhh


I passed thank-you!

I did manage to get in my Journaling. I have one that I write on one page and draw/art/paint on the opposite side.  so here are yesterdays and todays drawings/art inspired by miss Ady Almanza :


I haven’t added any color yet, and I don’t know if I will, I seem to shade better with a pencil….but I don’t know why?!

I have One more week until my sisters arrive, and it will be over way to fast! There is NEVER enough time.  So, that’s all for this creature of the night, I hope you all have a great Day tomorrow, and for some of you….its almost the Weekend!! (fist pump)  Take time out and do something nice for someone just because. It really feels good inside! Till tomorrow!

  1. What a productive day! And I love your faces! I am beginning to like faces just sketched and not painted. Sketching and a little shading. Love the eyes on these two. I keep trying different eyes that I see everyone doing. These are wonderful. Would you mind if I tried these?
