Thursday's Triplet of Thanks

A view from Glenna's Garden "The Door to Heaven" which has been the subject of many of my photographs!

Well it is truly amazing 70 degree temperatures at the end of October in NH for that I am thankful. Still on vacation of a sorts and it has been very relaxing. I guess I just needed to recharge as well for that I am thankful. Today I am alive thank you God. I have to admit that the creating bug is creeping back in. I don't want to start looking through everything that is packed up so with what I have still unpacked like my vintage oil pastels recently acquired..they are still in good shape from 1972....I have started to draw on bits of paper here and there. I created the front of a Seasons Greetings card by drawing a Chinese woman in her kimono on recycled envelope paper and attaching it to a piece of Christmas paper. This will be the front of a card for someone special. It turned out cute! Well I tried to get a picture of it, to post here for you and it seems that everytime I download my pics from my camera I lose them in my computer. It used to not be that way. I was very effecient with my shop pictures. I really need to get this figured out. Maybe it is better that, that someone special doesn't see the pic. Aha! Good morning from Manchester, NH! What three things are you thankful for today?

My Mondays

My Mondays are usually busy days for me. Today should be no exception then. Actually minus a trip to the PO is nice depending on how you look at it. Since I am on leave I don't miss those trips. I have a plan for my new studio space and that is to be super organized. I was and I wasn't before. I am still looking for that new pace. I see that it is going to take time. I even have an agent and I was so excited to get an email from her full of rentals but then I was so disappointed that the places were all super expensive yikes so I have been pursuing my own leads. God always has a hand in this too. For a little bit more money I want more space and to be away from the inner city yet still live in this wonderful city of Manchester, NH. I have found 3 places all close to one of the nicest parks around here. This is a park I have only seen in passing, driving by it. I would love to explore it and photograph it. My city Manchester is among one of the best for parks and preserved areas. I am excited at the prospect of perhaps living close by just this very particular park. Now I have 3 options!

A Finnish Friday

My ancestors were Finnish. I am 1/2 Finnish. I would love to travel there some day. I am a Saari. My Father was born in the US but his parents were immigrants to this country. They settled in Minnesota. Today I have decided to share a bit about a truly wonderful country Finland.

TOO Long Thursday

I know it has been long time since I blogged I miss it. I had to make some changes to this blog. Yay I am finally ready to post. I couldn't post for the longest time and didn't know what was wrong with my blog. So much has happened. I haven't moved that is going slowy. Fine by me! More time to look and find a new place that is just right. I have a new medical issue affecting my right hand. It was xrayed again this week. I am experiencing an unbelievable amount of pain at the base of my thumb. It makes it very difficult to do anything. Now I am waiting to see a specialist. I am very limited in all I do. I am not using the computer much or creating right now. I am happy to at least be able to blog a bit.

I know it is a generic picture of the lillies but still beautiful none the less.
