A little blog about the life of a somewhat lost dreamer....looking for my grace in this crazy world.

A bug in the works...


I'm sure you've all heard it by now, but there is a bug out there that has left us all a bit more vulnerable than what we thought.


So, after reading this article, I spent most of my evening changing my passwords...

Of course, that means I've spent most of my morning resetting my passwords because I've already forgotten them...

And just in case you need to change some passwords, here's another list...

That nagging internal critic...

It was a Monday...

Some Mondays seem more a Monday than others... you know what I mean?  I changed my morning routine yesterday and the whole day seemed to just fall apart.  Ah well, a few days and it will become the norm. 

I spent some time at the cemetery this weekend.  It's a strange spring.  Usually there are waves of different things blooming right now, but the winter was so difficult it seems like everything burst all at once.  The quince was blooming.  These always remind me of my Grandmother, she had a bush near her house.  My lilac is ready to burst, and I guess I'll have to be covering it tonight.  Snow is coming... again.  The weather man is predicting a couple of nights of hard freeze.  It is way too late in the year to be dealing with this crap.

I did get in several walks with the dog this weekend.  Worked on a couple of projects.  Got several pieces of gorgeous mail art that I can't wait to share with you.  And, I dropped in at Michael's.  While I try not to give them tons of my business (since I have written their corporate three times in the last year with zero responses) they had a sale going on their canvases, 67% off is difficult to pass up. So now there are sixteen new canvases sitting in my studio waiting for paint.

Every day on my way to have lunch with my father I drive by this...

The parking lot doesn't thrill me, but there is something about the trees on the ridge that intrigues me.  Maybe it's the vast expanse of blue sky.  Maybe it's because it sort of reminds me of a hill across from the farm I grew up on. 

In my head it translates to this...

Purple trees.  See, some things never change, even from all the way back in kindergarten.  And now there are only 15 canvases waiting.

So, how was your weekend?

Came so close...

But we didn't win.  These young men are to be congratulated for the team they turned into...  We will be welcoming home OUR Kentucky Wildcats later this afternoon, and I am sure it will be a party!

And now, I need a nap...

Ahh, the weekend...

Did everyone have a nice one?  I cannot believe how late I stayed up Saturday night watching a ballgame.  Admittedly, well worth it... but I think those boys are trying to give me a heart attack with these last second winning shots.  One more... I have my fingers crossed!

It wasn't all basketball for me though, a few more things were accomplished...

Finishing touches put on 20 post cards that are all ready to mail now.

I've also received some mail art!  Thanks to Snap, Melissa, Maureen and my partner Letizia.  I'll be sharing photos of them as soon as I get notes from everyone letting me know they received their mail from their partner... so for everyone who is playing in the exchange, don't forget to get your mail out if you haven't yet!!!  (And don't forget to send me pics of what you are sending your partner!)


And, for those who didn't play this time, don't forget, we'll be having another exchange in May!

Nan emailed me her mailing address, so this little painting will be going out tomorrow along with all the postcards...

And, last week, on April 1st, Kay... one of the ladies I work with, became a Grandmother for the very first time.  Her daughter Allison gave birth to Harper Anna, about three weeks early... both momma and baby girl are doing beautifully.  Miss Harper's room is done in little animals, and I painted this little fox for her room.  Her name and birth info was put on it this weekend so I can get it to her.

Along the way I did the usual cleaning and laundry, visiting my father, running errands and dragging home a few groceries.  I even baked cupcakes for a sweet young lady who volunteers every Sunday at the nursing home... she turned 13 last Wednesday. 

Of course, tonight I'll be glued in front of the TV again, waiting for that last second shot...

What did you guys do this weekend?  Plans for the week?
