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 280 – Simplify

Simplify – to reduce to basic essentials. There are many things in my life I’d like to simplify. My pantry, my hairstyle, and my art supplies could all use some cutting back, some re-thinking. But what I’d really like to do is find a simple way to track my incoming mail be it of the […]

Day 265 – Sweet Doodle No. 2

Day 248 – Marker Madness

I completely procrastinated my apple today! I needed to clear my head today. I hopped in my truck and headed for town, windows down – radio blaring!

Day 235 – Apple in a Bottle

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” — Herman Hesse Letting go can be so liberating and can take you in so many new and interesting directions. Put that message in a bottle – that wish you’d like to send out to the world and toss it […]

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.
