Day 362 – It’s About The Cows

Here we’ve been all these days and I’ve been saying it’s about the apples. Let me see if I can explain. About a year after I finished college I ended up following a boy to Colorado. I had fallen big time – nothing else would have made me pick up my few belongings get into […]

Day 314 – A Good Man

I have been blessed with a good man. He is someone who I can laugh with, share my day, my successes and failures, and someone to lean on in the difficult times. Don’t get me wrong – we’ve had our times and our disagreements as all marriages do. Doug has dealt with the ups and […]

Day 285 – Affects of Effects

Happy Saturday everyone! Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 282 was created in graphite and acrylic paint.

Day 271 – Caution Wet Paint

We all have the family stories we tell over and over again. Usually they involve Murphy’s Law, a fit of hysterics, or childhood antics. I guess this story involves all three of those! When I was around six we lived on a farm outside of Montpelier, Vermont. It was somewhat isolated up a hill off […]

Day 267 – Letting go

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. – Henry Ellis When people suffer from a chronic disease that causes pain like Ankylosing Spondylitis, we are very often given advice from people about how we can be cured. I can’t even begin to explain how frustrating this […]

Day 263 – Stormy Weather

It poured today! Now, this may not be big news but it was very odd for late June in Colorado. We get brief intense thunderstorms often with hail in the summer months but it rained all night and to about noon today. I loved it! The smell of rain on a summer morning makes me […]
