No Dust today!

Yesterday was a hot, dry, windy sand filled day. The wind is bad enough, but when there is enough dust in the air that you cannot see the 10,000 ft. mountains from downtown, that is too much! My sinuses and lungs don't appreciate it either, but luckily it is only a few weeks a year when it is this bad!

Another quote:

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

Henry Ford

I have been working in my new altered book, making background pages and should have some pictures soon. Also will work on my new paper piece this afternoon after brunch, errands and some housework are finished.

Another great qoute

I am such a quote junkie! And I find them everywhere!

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi

Great quote



Wish that I could attribute a source, but it was harvested from one of those multiply forwarded emails. This expresses my views on life exactly.

Annual Recycle Fair

It was gorgeous Sunday, so I went to the westside and saw the 3rd Annual Recycle Show at the Coors Open Space Center. I parked a long way away, walked, then walked the nearby Labryinth.

There was some very nice art and a lot from friends that belong to Rainbow Artists.
There was an exhibit of haikus and this one really impressed me (they were written in calligraphy, with accompanying water color sketches).

When your world goes wrong
reinvent the world with new
Suns, skies, moons and love.

Positive inspiration

I took a slight tumble this AM, luckily I fell into a juniper bush which broke my fall... This always upsets and depresses me, but I got on facebook and found this quote:
When you are in a hole, stop digging. Michael Josephson

That gave me a whole new perspective on the day. Thank you Positively Positive from FB! I also shared a video on FB which you might check out.

Creeping Crud

I guess that it finally caught up with me. Everyone at work has been sniffling, hacking and coughing, so it was almost inetivible. Felt really bad yesterday with stuffy nose, sore throat, but I made a roaring fire in the fireplace last night and that made me feel better. I went to work, but depends on how I feel in the morning. I plan on watching Dancing with the Stars (my secret vice!)and going to bed!
No art yet...

Lazy Blogger!

Well, I kind of fell off he blogger wagon! I have been having allergy (??)issues all week, and he wind has been roaring! Expect gusts of up to 60 MPH today, so I plan on actually doing some art!
Happy Dance: my problems at work have been minimized! My nemesis is taking a job which will remove most of my problems!

Weekend trip from Albuquerque to Amarillo

This bank sign just made me happy! Happy Texas is where this bank started.

One of the original fireplaces in Palo Duro Canyon. Longhorns were supposedly in this field, but we did not see any

Beautiful vistas on the way down to the bottom of the canyon.

Had a great visit with my friend L, who just moved to Amarillo. It is amazing that all that flat land opens up to this canyon!
