Simple Bruschetta

August 30, 2010

I have not been writing posts this week.  I needed a little break.  I didn’t read many blogs this week either so, I have no idea what my friends at Alphabet Thursday thought about the color blue.   I didn’t check out the awesome souls at Just for the Joy of It either.  I didn’t look [...]

Blue Skies and Church Steeples

August 25, 2010

Today at Thursday’s Alphabet Rainbow Summer School, we are writing about the color blue.  I almost didn’t participate because today, I felt blue.  Not kidding.  I don’t know about you but when I feel this way, after crying and moping and doing whatever I do when I am blue, I always eventually get back to [...]

On Furlough

August 22, 2010

I decided to take another class from the teacher….Jenny Matlock.  She hosts Alphabet Thursday and this summer it has been Rainbow Summer School.  This one is called Saturday Centus.  To be honest, I don’t know what Centus actually means.  It isn’t in my online dictionary and I consider myself pretty word savvy too…ha. But anyway, [...]

Russian Cabbage Soup

I don’t know if you have ever had this or not, but it is divine.  I needed something to cook in my crock pot today while I spent the day outdoors oil painting.  I had some cabbage, 1 gold potato, some sliced onion and I remembered this Russian Cabbage Soup recipe and decided to make [...]

Green is for Roasted Asparagus

August 18, 2010

This week at Alphabet Thursday Rainbow Summer School our color subject is green.  Green is a secondary color unlike last week’s color yellow.  Many times people will say that they painted their children’s room in primary colors and they include a grass green in the mix along with orange.  But, these are not primary colors.  [...]

Happy Accident

August 18, 2010

I left my family at home and came to the mountains in New Mexico in order to do some Plein Air painting.  En Plein Air is a French expression which means to paint “in the open air”  or outdoor painting (according to Wikipedia).  It became popular in the mid 19th century and was particularly popular [...]

My Little Town

August 16, 2010

I was looking for a photo and came across a couple of files with photos of the town where I reside.  Though I can’t tell you where that is…teehee….I can show you pics, right?   (Of course, if you want to email me, I will tell you where it is.)

Permanent Posies’ Take on Yellow

August 11, 2010

This week at Alphabet Thursday/Rainbow Summer School, we are taking a look at the color yellow.  This is a primary color, as you well know.  However, the primary color of yellow is hard to determine.  I have several tubes of yellow in my  palette.   Some are warm and some are cool.  I took a photo [...]

Amazing Grace Birthday Bash

August 11, 2010

So, here is a giveaway for you.  It is the first I have mentioned and I have never done one myself but I am participating in this one.  Not sure why….maybe because I love God’s Amazing Grace and it is the bloggers birthday.  So, the giveaway is sponsored by…..Amazing Grace but I learned about it [...]

The Shoppes at Brownstone Village

August 10, 2010

I had a great lunch the other day with an old friend of mine, Dian with GroceryShopForFree.com.  She turned me on to a great shopping mall called The Shoppes at Brownstone Village, where we had lunch and then walked around to get blog fodder do some window shopping.  I think Dian and I could talk [...]
