Day 233 – Saturday Apple

“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.” ~Pooh’s Little Instruction Book Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 233 was created in mixed media.

Day 232 – International Apple

To the wonderful people I’ve met from all over the globe. Tonight’s apple represents six countries of many and includes Great Britain, Canada, South Africa, Bulgaria, Pakistan, and the Philippines. I really never imagined that I would meet and get to know people from all over the world when I started this project 232 days […]

Day 231 – The Journey

  The Journey One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice– though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. “Mend my life!” each voice cried. But you didn’t stop. You knew what you […]

Day 230 – Splotch Apple

I love the creativity of artists! There is a guy… isn’t there always a guy? Anyway, there is a guy who makes a watercolor “splotch” and then creates a monster from what he sees in the splotch! OMG! That is just too funny and too cool. And – yes, there is another “and” – HE […]

Day 229 – Under the Surface

“It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order – and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.” – Douglas Hofstadter Mostly what is under the surface is so much more interesting than the facade but your facade is so much easier to […]

Day 228 – There Is No Try

Day 227 – Simple Sunday

It was a simple Sunday. Doug, Ella, and I drove downtown for the Arthritis Walk – photos will be on my Facebook wall tomorrow. Ella was treated like a queen with a pretty blue bandanna to show that dogs get arthritis too as well as treats and love. We managed to do the two mile […]

Day 226 – Obsession Confession

I have a confession to make. I’m a beast. A beast with a need to grab hold of something I believe in and lock-jaw onto it. I gnaw away and gnaw away until I get to where I want to go. I tear past all the meat and gristle of what’s in front of me […]

Day 225 – Follow The Dots

One, two, three… everything in order. Right? Most days I think I’m going along with my life just as I had laid it out in my mind as a young woman. I was brought up believing that if I followed the rules, colored in the lines, and took the steps in order that life would […]

Day 224 – Cut That Out!

Winter – it’s time to release your hold – just cut that out mother nature! My friend Christine sent me an instant message on Facebook last night after she saw the photo I had taken and posted of the snow falling here. She said, “Now you have to do a snow apple!” to which I […]
