Day 332 – You Are Beautiful

I think everyone should be told they’re beautiful until they believe it. – Unknown I just finished watching a story on 60 Minutes about Gospel For Teens, a program in Harlem, NY. The program was started to make sure that gospel is taught to the next generation and doesn’t become a lost form – that […]

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 327 – Love This Vintage

I’m a pack rat – I admit it and I could use a 12 step program. I have a very difficult time throwing things out. I’m not a hoarder – I hate to buy things, but I collect everything. Yes, it is a fine line but I think it has to do with the artist […]

Day 316 – An Apple Carriage Awaits Midnight!

About a month ago I posed a question on my Facebook page asking people what their favorite fairy tale was because I was looking for ideas for The Daily Apple and I received some amazing suggestions. Initially I was thinking of doing a week of Fairy Tale Apples but I decided that I would go […]

Day 312 – When To Kvetch

I grew up learning to gut through difficult situations. No Kvetching allowed. But my friend Michael of Spondyville started a topic today on one of the support groups for AS. He posed the following: In accepting having AS, and learning to cope, have you gone too far? By that, I mean, are you TOO good […]

Day 310 – Situational Awareness

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. – Martha Washington We all have a certain amount of situational awareness or (SA). I can predict […]

Day 309 – Nolo Contendere

I am guilty of wanting to get something big to happen in the world of spondylitis awareness. It has been my whole mission and constant and full time work for over 10 months – many days working 10-12 hours much to the dismay of my husband and family. I have had a single mindedness and […]

Day 307 – Holy Apple, Batman!

I’m a bit slap-happy tonight but I couldn’t resist. Lots of wonderful things going on here in the world of Apples! Stay tuned and if you haven’t *liked* me on my Facebook page or signed up for The Daily Apple to get the latest updates – please do. We’re in countdown mode and things are […]

Day 304 – A Saturday Apple-A-Thon For A Sunday

I didn’t do a Saturday apple yesterday. So since I had a very long day I decided to do it today – but with a twist… This apple is representative of the apples I will be doing for the Apple-A-Thon. How many of these do you think I can paint in 24 hours? Closest guess […]

Day 303 – An Experiment

Every great inspiration is but an experiment. – Charles Ives Lately on Saturdays I’ve been creating a “Saturday Apple” – an apple that is pretty but simply painted and that doesn’t include any post. It was a bit of a compromise with Doug because I was spending a lot of time on the weekends on […]
