Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Week 1 – Pick a Topic from This Photo

…thanks to Cee for this unusual theme for the Fun Foto Challenge

Here is the photo Cee chose for us to use as inspiration.

We can use anything in the photo, i.e., vintage car, bridge, road, grass, trees, people, flowers, etc.



Yay….a New Challenge – Week 1

…thanks to Cee for starting a new challenge Hunt for Joy

The theme for the first week is to Get Outside. Seeing how much I like to walk this was a pretty easy one for me.

As you can see it’s been a bit overcast lately and the weekend calls for lots of rain.14D50E60-19E4-4D21-96FC-7F80892C256A

But these two fellows brought me joy on my walk.005FC3F9-B48E-4CFE-817D-54CF02B16977DD5A479A-A6D9-44BB-8855-2EC4C2375085

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – Week 1

….you can tell I had a lot of time on my hands while waiting for my son’s surgery to happen

Hospitals can be creepy places late at night when most people have gone home to their own beds and the patients have the lights turned off so that they can sleep as well.

One evening last week, while I was waiting for our son’s surgery to take place, I took a walk through the empty halls of St. Joe’s looking for interesting subjects for a photo shoot. Here are a few things that I observed.

Share Your World – 2015 – Week 1

…..wow a new year of Share Your World with Cee

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

If I hear dead air for a second or two after I say Hello I know it’s a telemarketer and I hang up. Simple!

What are you a “natural” at doing?

I don’t know if anyone is a natural at anything. I know that people might think I’m a natural when it comes to art or public speaking but it wasn’t always that way. I had to work at it to gain confidence and even now I still have doubts about my abilities but I am always willing to try new things and take some risks.

How often do you get a haircut?

When my hair is short I try to get it cut every 6 to 8 weeks. When it’s longer it might be every two to three months.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Fun for me is creating art and being around friends.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week I was grateful for having my entire family home for Christmas and having everyone together to celebrate B and G’s birthday. I also loved visiting and spending time with friends.

This week I’m looking forward to some quiet time with my husband before he has to go back for more surgery on his thyroid next Monday. I’m also looking forward to starting a new on-line year long art class with Carla Sonheim and Lynn Whipple called Year of the Spark.


I can't upload my Year of the Spark poster that I made. How frustrating!
