I was carefully cutting up an onion for our steak dinner tonight when the onion slipped and the knife went right into my pinky!  I let out quite a yell!  It was bleeding so much that I had to get my husband to put the band aid on.  It seems fine now so hopefully I won’t need stitches. 

Oh well, it happens!

So Glad to get Started on a new Pawleys Island Painting!

The start of a new painting is always great!  I have an idea what I want but I never know which way a painting will take me.  It is never my intention to reproduce a photograph.  I have to express myself in  color and textures that communicate my personality. 

Some of them start out so well and just keep on going with few problems!  I think this one is going to be one of those!  Yea!!!

I can’t believe how filling Beets are!


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

I have been trying to improve my diet to get more potassium since I realized I wasn’t even getting half of the daily requirement.  No wonder I was having a lot of leg cramps.  Anyway,  I am learning about super foods and beets is one of them.

The only vegetable I thought was filling was the potato which is also a super food.  Beets are filling, too!  That was a surprise.

Any way, between drinking more water and eating foods loaded with potassium I have not had a leg cramp in a long time!

Here’s to potassium!

I am Really Figuring out that Monkey!


Please check out my latest Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

As I have mentioned ad nauseam, I am not that great with computers and new sites usually baffle me for a while. 

I was having a very hard time with Mail Chimp but I think I have figured out how to work with that monkey! 

It is a great site, I just get confused with some of the directions.

This pastel painting, “Skating”, is the last of my skating paintings.  This one is a celebration of my sister Anne.   In elementary school she joined the girl scouts and earned a badge for ice skating.  The instructors at the rink were so impressed with her natural ability that they encouraged her to take lessons. 

She became quite an accomplished skater and completed three of the preliminary tests to be an Olympic contender.  She decided she didn’t want to compete but has been an Ice Skating Instructor in Sterling, Virginia for many years.  This painting is a celebration of her gift.  She is the figure in the top center and the other skaters are famous skaters.  I changed their faces so I wouldn’t run into any copyright issues.

I have always been impressed with her skill.  I also ice skated when I was a child but just for fun and exercise.  When I moved to Southwest Virginia I took up roller skating since the nearest ice rink is in Roanoke, VA.  As I mentioned in previous blogs, I was very disappointed when the local rink closed this past Spring.  I hope another one opens up in the future.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The other day I mentioned my husband’s addition to all the warnings on drug commercials.  He said that if you are dead, stop taking this medication. 

Yesterday he added this.  If you are dead, stop taking this medication and call your lawyer.

I don’t know why I am so tired today.  I work hard every day so, what was different about yesterday?  I’m not a great sleeper so maybe that is catching up with me.  If I fell asleep in front of this computer and landed on the keyboard I wonder what would happen?

Who knows what keys I would hit.  Could be interesting but I am not about to find out. 

Time to get some tea!

Be Careful what you are Thinking when Walking…


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

My title is more of a joke than anything else.  A friend recently broke her ankle by falling in an awkward way and it reminded me of a strange fall I had a number of years ago.

I was walking with my husband on a sidewalk and thinking about how I probably should give up skating since it is rather dangerous and I am not getting any younger.

Then I thought I didn’t need to quit since I am so careful when I skate.

Right as that thought was going through my head my foot caught something and down I went on the cement.  Fortunately I only scratched up an arm and my head. 

Have I given up skating?  No.
