Happy 4th of July!!!

Hi all,
I hope your BBQs went off well and that you were surrounded by lots of friends and family. We are just staying home reading and relaxing, fun stuff! Erick, my 14yo ds went over to a BBQ party at the home of one of his home schooling friends. Liam, my 8yo ds is waiting for night to come so that he can set off his fireworks. He went with his dad to get some snacks to go with our afternoon coffee but still is moaning about it being a long time until dark, silly boy!

I have not done much with my art lately. Still working on my 24yo dd's altered book that I need to get more done on it if I want it to be done by her birthday on the 18th. I do not think it will get done, there is just too much to do on it. Perhaps I will give it to her when I get it done, maybe Christmas;-) I can only do what I can do no need to stress about it. The project was planned several years ago, so what does another month matter? My health only allows me to do so much in a day and part of that energy is given toward schooling my boys.

My goal for this coming week is to work on my websites which means scanning in a lot of my photos. Stay tuned.

Once again I hope that your day is going great or was fantastic.
Happy Independence Day!

Summer is Here!!!

Hi all,
Yes, summer has finally arrived in Utah. It is going to be in the 90s for the next few days. OK, it is not all that bad because in Utah there is hardly any humidity only about 10 or 15 percent. That low humidity makes the heat easier to take, as easy as one can take hot air. I like air that is around 65 to 75 degrees. Usually I sleep in a cold room, even in the winter my bedroom must be cool to cold. It is a little harder to make it cold in the summer unless I run the air conditioner full blast and I do not want to do that, too much money and not so good for the environment. I have a bedroom in the basement and that makes for nice comfortable sleeping.

I hope all of you are staying cool but enjoying the nice weather. Do something fun today!

June 11, 2008
Yes, it has been nearly a month since I last posted. Shame on me! I have been busy trying to be busy. There are days when I feel as though I am going in circles. I wake up with a plan in my head only to have that plan fall apart or be pushed aside. I am one of those types of people who are considered perfectionist who would rather not do anything than do something part way. It has to be perfect or I just cannot do it. Add a little bit of procrastination in and well you have a mess. It is beyond me as to how I fix this. One day at a time I guess would be a good place to start.

One of the things I have been trying to do for the last year is to put together a website in order to sell my art. However, I am afraid of doing it. Silly thing to be afraid of doing something that should be so easy for me. I have had the web addy for that long also. I must work up the nerve to get it done. One day at a time! One or two items added to my page and blog will be better in the end than not doing anything at all.

A list of what I want to do:
Blog once or twice a week
Get webpage finished and published
Do more art
Sell my art
Have fun
and so on and so on. . . .

Today I am at least adding to my blog. I hope that there will be someone out there who will read what it is I have to say. Until then I will continue to write as if there is.
Have a great day!

Welcome to my blog

Hi all,
This is my first time having a blog. Yes, blogs have been out for a bit and yes, I have been slow on the uptake, but at least I am here now. I am sure at first my blog entries will be rough but as time goes on I shall be better at it. Be patient with me.
