My goodness ,I have been so busy ,getting a lot of outside work done we have painted the house, had a new oil tank put in and the list goes on with the weather being a tad cooler. Also because I have been having computer problems and she my dear source of information and connecting with the outside world has been in the shop or maybe I should say in and out of the shop for at least the past 3 or more weeks. Like the title of this post says, "you never know until it's gone" just how much one uses and misses this technology stuff. We have a cell phone but never use it and we don't text but I am hooked to my computer. So ,what did we do before all this? Yes I know now, we got a lot of work done when we got off the phone that was tethered to the wall,most times in the kitchen, or the little pink princess phone my darling Mom had on her bedside stand. Today is a beautiful day so my writings will be brief for now, I should be needle felting, in fact I must needle felt, I have a few wonderful props for some interesting works to be completed before Christmas, I will tell you one sculpture will be with a homemade spinning wheel ,as well I have a few other interesting props that I am excited to get to work on. Many ideas .just need to make the time.
Everyone is back to school and work and so much is happening. I have been busy getting all my art Students situated and geared up for the days and times that work for them for the school year.
We are heading to Queens Manor again on Oct. 22 for a bit of drumming and hopefully I will find some interesting music for the residents to play along with, songs that they remember and may put a jump in their steps and minds. It feels so nice doing this , giving them what ever energy we can muster up,sometimes I feel like I am their age, but we need to keep going and we will, no excuses for stopping, not when there is work to be done and laughs to be had.
Monday is our 32nd wedding anniversary and we have been together since 1978, I believe we will stay together ,at this age we don't like change and well ,I have my Chucky trained just the way I like him and he me, the same. Actually we laugh at each other all the time and that can be a good thing. No one else would put up with us ,I am sure of that. We will celebrate our anniversary with delicious Rubin Sandwiches, no fancy restraints for us, we may light a candle and eat under our Pergola. Oh and maybe a desert...yum!!!we need nothing that we don't already have. Our friends are having their wedding anniversary today and asked if we could exchange paintings with him ,so I have another beautiful William Hays painting and he is presenting his lovely wife Patricia with one of my paintings today, I love these trades, bartering is a good thing.
So stay tuned for my soon to be latest needle felting ,now that I have said that ,I will leave you here and get some work done so that this afternoon I can needle felt or maybe drum....Hmmmmm!!! decisions to be made, but outside work first. Enjoy this perfect weather, my favorite time of year.
