Day 349 – Take Out

My mom always said, “Don’t go to the supermarket on an empty stomach.” Maybe not her most thought provoking piece of advice but words to live by for sure. I think tonight I could have listened to that advice when making my apple. All I’ve been able to think about for the last hour and […]

Day 339 – A Real Treasure

There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island. – Walt Disney Today’s apple, post, and quote are for my friend Holly. First and foremost because she is a treasure. She is a sparkly, shiny box of valuable goodies. She is passionate, creative, and funny and she has AS. […]

Day 335 – Rules? What Rules?

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.  Katharine Hepburn I set some rules upon myself on Day One of Art Apple A Day. They were: A 5” x 5” image – no other restrictions except that it could not be photographs or digital art. It had to be done by hand. […]

Day 333 – Comfort And Safety

What gives you comfort? Is it home? Food? Maybe it’s the sound of the ocean. I find comfort in all of these things but for physical comfort I have a few items of clothing that will never be seen past the doors of my home. YES – they are that dreadful! I have a cardigan […]

Day 331 – Sounds of Saturday Morning

There was quite a symphony going on this morning while Doug and I were lazily waking up. The Russian Olive Trees are starting to ripen; the birds are in celebration mode and woke happily to feast but that was a mere background beat. The dog was stirring, shaking her body awake and Bitty Kitty was […]

Day 300 – Learn, Live, Hope

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. – Albert Einstein I have learned so much in the last 10 months. I had no idea what an amazing ride this was going to be. I had no idea that I would experience so many joys as well as some deep sadnesses that would travel […]

Day 269 – Miscellany

“Arrange whatever pieces come your way” – Virginia Wolfe Take the miscellany of life and put it together into something interesting. I can’t decide my favorite way to talk about the conglomeration of the pieces of my life.  Bits and bobs, hodgepodge, and Doug’s favorite (he’s a crossword buff) – olio! Collage your miscellany together – […]

Day 262 – Sparkle and Shine

My Dad is one of the most remarkable people I know. You may think it’s strange of me to name a post about my Dad – “Sparkle and Shine” – but that is what he does. His goodness shines out of him, his smile sparkles and his laugh is contagious. My Dad makes friends of […]

Day 260 – Toile & Polka

I love juxtaposition – the act of placing side by side. I generally think of a juxtaposition as being two ideas or images that because of their great difference highlight the other due to their diversity and contradiction. Toile & Polka dots are both patterns that I love and could not be more different. Hopefully […]

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 […]
