S is for School

The weeks just fly by...today it's a doctor's appt. for me...at 9am.... Toby goes to the vet to have his ears checked at 3....I feel much better today. I think I needed a good nights sleep! I did make the chicken tacos last night....and got all my errands done..the grocery store...the post office...and...I did watch the rockstar elimination show last night. It was Patrice...GOOD! She seemed like a really nice person...but I didn't think she was "rock star" material....I didn't care for her voice...plus I thought she was dull on stage... there are only 6 or 7 more rockers left... just hope Lukas or Storm don't win.....the rest I don't care...although I hope it's Dilana!
Also managed to get some more alphabet atc's done... only have 5 more to do....got Barb's calendar in the mail...I'll work on that today, and mail it off....Oh! also got my music CD in the mail from Kristen which I LOVE...lots of great music on it!
Remember me saying I needed to clean the studio???? Well...guess what! It STILL NEEDS CLEANED! So....just maybe I can get a start on that today! Keep your fingers crossed....and don't hold your breath!
I read an article last night about a painter who is 91 years old...his name is Alan Post...He sold his first painting during the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration and whose expressionistic landscapes, human-figures and still-life scenes have been turning collectors into addicts ever since. He still creates art despite cataract surgery, macular degeneration and a slightly shakier hand....I LOVE reading stories like this....talk about INSPIRATION....

You have had been busy! And the studio will wait. Sometimes you just need a little breathing room.

Loved hearing about the artist, Alan Post. I'll have to see if I can find something about him online.

In case any one wants to cut and paste this in if it dosen't come up linked. Top right is "recent" and "older". He is a phenomenon.
