We all start somewhere, and here are my cosmos seedlings. I hope they will be tall and beautiful come August.
Many thanks for all the prayers for my Mom.
You are the best!
I watched, STILL ALICE last night.
What a fantastic movie.
It may seem like pouring salt in the wound, but I was ready to watch it.
I want to learn about this disease of the brain.
The good news, of course, is that knitting is a great brain activity!
There is sidewalk chalk art appearing in town, now that the weather is improving.
I love seeing what children draw, don't you?
When I worked in the NICU siblings often colored the funniest, sweetest things for their new babies. We hung these little masterpieces on the isolettes.
What with all the technology we surround ourselves and our children with, there is something so good about a child's drawing.
They say it is good for a child's self esteem, to draw.
Good for the motor skills.
Great to have something to GIVE someone.
I was always fascinated by the public television shows that TAUGHT you to draw or paint.
I can watch someone else paint or draw comics with great fascination and admiration.
I know I've told you that the only "D" I ever got was in art! How do you give someone a D in art?
Don't you get a C for just trying?
What? Did I color outside a line something?
I'll admit I had no patience for WORK books as a kid. It was just pages to breeze through. I probably got the D for rushing through a project. I remember the anxiety I felt at the beginning of the year when we had 26 files to get through. It was all about finishing and finishing those boring phonics worksheets fast. !!!
I think I was color challenged too.
I remember thinking (in College!) it was fine to wear a red shirt with a maroon skirt. I thought they were in the same family, so they must go together.
This is what years of wearing a UNIFORM does to your imagination....
Where is this going?
Well, I think I love color because my world was navy and green plaid for 10 years. Two years of high school were sanctioned light blue and navy skirts. So twelve years of blue.
I've always loved blue....
I still do.
When I see Navy and Kelly Green however,
Back to the drawing board:
How do I color my world with confidence now?
I copy what I Like.
Our whole kitchen scheme is copied from a magazine photo.
Hey its really pretty.....and why re-invent the wheel?
Just copying it correctly is work enough for this "D" student!
I'm off to knit some mittens now,
in a skein of yarn with a color way called,
You guessed it,
it's blues and greens!
