Late to the game again – but not as bad as last week, when I never quite got to it at all. Now that it’s almost time for a new share, I’m ready to join Cee and all of you to share some more of my world.
Are you a practical jokester? No, not at all. Too often I think practical jokes are on the cruel side.
Who cuts your hair? You, a friend, or professional. In the past, once I grew up and out of my mother cutting my hair, I’ve always had a professional do it. But lately since I have so little hair, I’ve been snipping at it here and there, getting the clippers with the 1″ attachment on them for the back – where I do have to sometimes ask for help in neatening it up since it’s hard for me to see back there. Ultimately I know I’ll have it so messed up I might have to go to a professional to get it fixed.
Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind? I don’t remember having stuffed animals as a kid except for the monkey my mother made out of men’s socks. I think I was more a doll kind of girl, until I turned into a major tomboy. I have some stuffed animals now that people have given me over the years, but those are gradually becoming Shasta toys – because they are big dust collectors.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Communications with my kids, mostly. Friends returning from visiting their family and enjoying a casual dinner out with them. Trying to learn how to use acrylic paints – wayyyyy back in the day, I painted with oils, but it’s been a very long time and I’m finding out there’s a steep learning curve. So I watch tutorials – thank heavens for You Tube – learn a little more with each one, then try another painting. So far I’ve painted over two or three canvases to start again. I have one I will share, but just barely – I’m not happy with it, but it’s better than the two I painted over. This one was done on a canvas on which I had applied a gel medium to seal for an alcohol ink painting which left odd ridges on the canvas.
