Yesterday I had another restless day, which means I just keep busy, working on my projects, painting, which calms me down, tidying drawes and boxes, which gives me some structure to hold on to. And I slept for the first time this week, right though the night, 8 hours in one stretch, and that is something I am very thankful for. I think I must have dreamt about my sister Cynthia, who died 11 years ago, because I was thinking of her, and a dress she once gave me, as I woke up. But it must have been a pleasant dream, as there was just this nice memory .
So Good morning you all! It's another hot and sunny day here, I think it will be a balcony day....
Yesterday I was busy painting, and made a picture similar to the one from yesterday, and a canvas. First the picture, which has been painted in tempera colours again, a mixed media piece, and I even like it myself.
I think I like the colours better than yesterday, they have more warmth. It really does me good just to sit and paint, I think there is nothing more calming that I know.
And I made another canvas, as i discovered a whole pile in different shapes and sizes in the Bottomless Pit, AKA Hall Closet.
I have one again used a page from one of the old magazines, lots of mod-podge and gesso, and then some images and rub ons. The picture of HÄnsel and Grethel was in another book that is slowly decaying. I have a lot of books from the late 19th, early 2oth century, and as the paper was very acidy, the pages turn brown, and brittle, and then crumble, so I am using what I can in art projects to try o conserve at least parts of them.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble..
Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'
Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth .
