is in order…to my loyal little band of followers :)
you’re all very much appreciated :)
now let the GREEN begin :)
a St Pat’s OOMMI doodle…hot off the Kindle app presses!!
the Irish I’m kin to were/are named Meade…my family (from the beginning of time) was big on naming their children after relatives…near and distant…so my sister was given Meade as a middle name. and since my mother made a point of telling us about the Irish Meades, I gathered (correctly I’m sure), that her family was proud of the fact that they were a bit of Irish. and so am I :)
on the other hand Mom never danced an Irish Jig or downed a round of green ale…so I don’t know :)
for any who celebrate St Patrick’s Day on the 17th
when we all get to be a little bit Irish :)
it’s also my oldest grandson’s birthday!
OK, so I’ve gone through (and am still going through) old doodles and photos. I’ve deleted tons of photos…since my photography skill extends to taking a lot of shots of the same subject with the hope that at least one will turn out :)
I’ve made the first cut and now I’m working on the second. I keep finding things that I think I’ve never used on this blog…only to discover, when I peruse my WordPress media library, that I have used them. So I either need to take new photos, create new doodles OR turn this into a word blog.
Which flies in the face of the philosophy I live by…that “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
So I leave you with some selfies of one sort or another :)
and the hope that I come up with something new by tomorrow
On second thought I believe I did have something of a nightmare when I was a child…I dreamed a man was chasing me with a knife…when my sister finally shook me enough to wake me up, I discovered I needed to go to the bathroom…quickly!!!
Which reminds me of when I was 9 and had my tonsils out…when they* were putting me out with ether (which stinks by the way) they* told me to count back from 100…I started and before I knew it Mickey Mouse was racing around and around on a clock in my head.
well I did warn you that I was OOMM (out of my mind) :D:D:D
well maybe loving someone and being loved in return or having a new great grand baby in the family…but then without nature none of that would be possible…so I vote for nature :)
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” Henry David Thoreau
Perhaps I’m in the middle of the winter doldrums or maybe not…I just haven’t been inspired to doodle much lately. I believe it’s time to try something(s) arty that are a bit different. I’ve been painting the interior of the garage…walls and soon the floor. When I’m done I’ll have a space I can use to paint with acrylics, fingerpaints or whatever messy media I’m inspired to try. And I won’t have to neatly put it away when I’m finished for the day :)
I’m beyond excited :)
I have tons of “old stuff” to share till the garage is done and today’s the day to start :)
