Soooo Busy or Not

Yep, that's how I feel. An old self portrait, but lying on the floor - that's me. Fighting a flu bug. Half in and half out of the art mode.

Used to disdain Facebook as a frou frou program, and truly I miss the richness, the more personable, more arty, more - - - blogspot! Blogspot is just deeper and you don't have to worry about Uncle Judge Your Stuff giving you a hard time. Most of the time anyway, a few have leaked through though, right?

I don't where my time has gone - I have practically quit farming (Farmtown) - and have been on a short painting hiatus (darn!) - my house is dirty, still cluttered -

Going to Orlando week after next to a week long seminar - which I hope will break me through to being able to bring in a fairly steady income from art - I have ideas - but fear often finds me not working them....the ideas, that water/health product business leaves much to be desired, haha, like sales! The products fabulous, the getting them out there makes me cringe - why have to push something that is marvelous, is good for health and in the case of water, saves the environment? Besides, now they are finding that some of the bottled waters are even worse than the tap water! Most of the stuff we buy is heralded by a bunch of bunk, and I have something tried and true and the money part isn't working, so my thoughts are, don't keep working on something that isn't working, right? My heart is to paint! I will keep the water and health business, but only as a side for our use, and if someone needs help along the way, then we can share. So a time of new discovery is underway.

On a sad note - my blog pal, Hattigrace, in fact she got me started on blogspot, lost her husband last Wednesday - it seems like weeks ago, yet not - he was over at noon getting water and ran some errands, went home and went to bed and she found him when she got home from work. A huge shock and he will be terribly missed. He was a kind, supportive kind of person. He had suffered poor health for 15 years since he had a stroke, but he was always "there" ya know? He'll be missed. Funeral is tomorrow - I am hoping I feel better, don't want to carry any germs!

My Zoo

Never thought I would see them watch a dog eat THEIR food, though they surely feel that they are entitled to his food- they are alpha cats.

This is Manuel Guardo Montoya. He sings to you from his throat. Totally different than a growl, he does that too! He is too sweet.

Guido Romeo Basseto and Big Mama aka Big Meowie. Now, if Psycho darling will accept Guido we're in!

Sometimes we add my granddaughter's Weezy, a chihuahua and yorkie mix to our zoo mix.

Had a great Labor Day - oldest daughter came over (youngest just got off of night shift) and we went to a Tiki Bar and beautiful pool to hang out and renew our tans. Youngest grandson went with us, found people to play ball with and he had a ball - we people watched, the band came on motorcycles with their instruments - if he hadn't had to go home, we would have stayed till the sun went down.

Does Canada celebrate Labor Day?
