Day 295 – A Smallish Nap… or Two

”Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.” -Winnie the Pooh Poor Pooh has been lost in the Harry Potter buzz. I adore Winnie The Pooh. Ok, so who doesn’t? There is a new Disney animated film about the Hundred Acre Woods with the whole cast of characters – Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga […]

Day 206 – Soft Spring

“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.”- Jack Kerouac I’m ready for some soft spring days and nights. It was cold and […]

Day 201 – Bite Off More Than You Can Chew!

Bite off more than you can chew and then chew like hell. – Peter Brock This is the first Apple I’ve done with one bite out of it. Really – I’ve stayed away from that icon 🙂 Just because we’re making apples doesn’t mean we need anyone to associate us with “Apple” which is why I […]

Day 157 – What the Worm is to the Apple

Sorrow is to the soul what the worm is to the apple. This is from a Turkish proverb that actually says “Sorrow is to the soul what the worm is to the wood” but the point remains the same. When we live in sadness it eats up our spirit and our soul. Once it takes […]

Day 143 – Whirling Dervish

. I’m spinning. When I think of a Whirling Dervish – I think of the Urban Dictionary (caution there is some crazy stuff there) definition.  I was thinking of whirling because I’ve felt a bit frenetic lately. It feels very strange and I’m thinking that the way I’m feeling is probably how most people feel […]

Day 141 – “Yeah, my back hurts too.”

Caution:  Rant ahead. If I could collect a dollar for every time I heard the statement, “Yeah, my back hurts too”  I’d have enough money to fund the entire HHS and CDC! Ok, that made me laugh. But the point is that this is what we, as people with Ankylosing Spondylitis, hear. If you think […]

Day 139 – Just having Fun!

Sometimes you just have to have fun! I had such a glorious but crazy busy day. I’ll tell you all about it soon but it involves a guest post on the WEGO health blog about the first ever Twitter chat with Big Pharma! A huge step in the right direction! Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 139 […]

Day 138 – Can’t see the Apple for the Trees

I try not to get caught in the trap. By focusing on the details we can lose site of the big picture. Lately my life just seems to be easier when lived in the minutia.  Taking one day and one apple at a time may get me to 365 days but if I think of […]

Day 137 – Topiary

I love to garden. It amazes me to see something come to life from a seed or a dormant bunch of twigs. For me it’s a way to paint with living things and I’ve always been very interested in trying my hand at topiary. Country Living had an article last year or maybe two years […]

Day 135 – Apple Calligram

Calligram. The words and world of AS in a Calligram! Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 135 was created in black ink.
