hope all of you US people had a wonderful July 4th and the rest of my International friends had a most amazing Wednesday...
yesterday started with my bubs and I sleeping in....together, I know, I know something that never happens but for 2 times a month, so this was a bonus...
we knew we had a lot of nonsense that needed to get done during the day, but....we just could not bring ourselves to rush out the door so soon, especially after sating up sort of late the night before and having drinks outside because all the neighbors were away.
So after finally tearing ourselves out of bed we had to take care of nonsense....cleaning the house which we had failed to do post mean cheese, plus I had to package stuff, and then there were annoying business related things to be done...knowing my bubs actually had to go out Wednesday night it made the day feel a bit compressed.
Later in the afternoon as a treat for getting "real work" done we decided to go out for a while, my bubs went to the guitar store and "played" with the toys there, I will admit I know nothing about guitars except for which one I think is pretty or not, so basically he would play one I would say "that's pretty", he would play one...I would say"that's not as pretty" and so on and so forth.
I guess I was a good sport in the guitar store so after that we decided to go to Macy's...where I wandered around and looked at things and my poor bubs did a lot of "That's pretty", right back to me....I ended up treating myself to a new outfit, complete with the cutest top I have ever seen and a new skirt, sure I spent more than I "should" have, but at the time, I knew I needed them.
From there we hit Starbucks, Michaels for supplies, Target just to look around...then back home...last night when I was alone I really began to devour the book "The Ghost Orchid" and it is haunting me right now as I type this....will I have the will power to keep from reading it today??? Will I be able to get some work done???
ok truthfully I want to go back to sleep, you see my entire neighbor hood was lighting off fireworks non stop for the past two days, in fact someone in the neighborhood was setting them off until 2:00am...I kept peeking out the window to see who it was but due to sleepiness, alergy medicine, and a bit of the demon liquor....I could not tell where the noise was coming from, just that it was annoying as can be.
The piece I am showing today is something I am particularly proud of, I love the woman in it, and also was totally in love with the ghostly tree picture I found to use as a background. The piece is called "It Was Only Important To Smile" and is available in my etsy shop.
