it's been such a busy week and i swear i've been fighting off a little bug of some sort. hubby was on vacation doing chores around the house and i had no energy at all after working each day. two days i came home from work and went straight to bed for an hour's nap. i do feel better today. we have a new robin's nest, this time in the honeysuckle bush at the back of the house. two eggs are nestled inside and the protective mama will fly right out and at me if i approach too quickly.
here's the nest snug inside the honeysuckle bush! if it's the same mama as the one who nested at the front door, she sure picked a safer and quieter place this time.
starting on tuesday, i'll be participating in the inch by inch art project created by paris. each tuesday i'll post a photo of the 3" x 3" art piece that i created that week. i've already warned paris that i may not have time to participate very week but i'll sure try. this week's theme is rain and i have a few ideas rattling around in my head.
sweet, sweet nana trish nominated me for this awe-summmm!!!! award. thanks, nana!! you show me so much love and support and it really is appreciated. the award comes with a challenge to list 7 things about myself that make me awe-summmm. here goes:
one i like to make people laugh. when things get tense at work, i find ways to lighten the mood. last year i created a make-believe mascot, guido, for our creative department. guido pulls pranks, is the culprit if anything goes wrong and is currently running a worm farm under our boss' desk.
two i enjoy sharing my crafty wares. i'm sure that i give way more of my art away than i ever sell. it makes me happy!
three one of the roles in life that i enjoy the most is being grandma julie. i've always loved kids and so adore getting right down on their level to play and be silly.
four i see beauty everywhere and take the time to soak in the blessings of life.
five god blessed me with this right-brain / left-brain multi-tasking gene which allows me to be very creative while outlining the steps for implementation at the same time. did i say my life is blessed?
six i have a secret love affair going on with books and one of my pleasures in life is sharing and giving books to others. i'm quick to offer suggestions on great reads and don't-miss authors.
seven i'm humble. hee hee seriously, someone should create one of these memes where you have to post on your blog all the ways you are a less-than-perfect human being. mine would be a list of at least one hundred ways!!
my three nominees are kerri, lori and alisa!!
hubbie and i are off to explore the clifton gorge in yellow springs, ohio. i'm taking my camera, of course!!
