My Studio...a love story

This morning, sitting in the warm sunlight coming through my studio window, watching the golfers joyfully trekking across the green turf, I gave a sigh of blissful thanks. Perhaps it was the great Starbucks coffee combined with the Purdeys Snowballs ingested for breakfast that gave me my joie de vie or maybe I just about have the best Studio ...EVer. I love the light, the lake and winery views. The fact that everything is within arms reach and workspace is abundant. I can see all the mediums I work with allowing creative mixing of stuff most would think could not work and some times doesn't. I love, love, love art and hope I have enough time to explore and enjoy it never disappoints.

Attention Sarah..Gram has gone green!

The world is suddenly a bit brighter....the new Shoe Warehouse is now open for business with a 50% off opening sale. I so love shoes and bags and will never have too many in spite of what you might think, my love. Tonight fortified with chocolate, I will change to my beautiful olive baby and accompanying wallet and makeup bag and thank the Universe for all things green. Yes, in support of our planets ecosystem I have now gone green.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

On a positive note let's start with the Ugly...still coughing up crap, still on a 1 to 1 communication with the great white telephone, still banished to the guest room.
Here comes the decent chocolate, no salt and vinegar potato chips and going on 2 weeks since the last cup of good coffee. Finally for my optimistic friends...the Good...last night I found a new laptop on my pillow, which raises the question. Has my Obituary been forwarded to the Capital News?

So cool

Yes, yes, yes! You are going to say; "Get me whatever she's having" when you see these bracelets. They are so cool.

Alive and ....well, alive

Safely sitting on a studio chair with arms, Kleenex to the right, orange juice directly in front of me and basket of Tylenol Cold and Flu, Gravol, Benelyn for coughs and Electric C to the left makes me READY TO RUMBLE. Today will be such a productive clay day that I expect a phone call from the Feemo and Polymer people asking me to do advertising for them.
This in the history of my life and I include the Strep Throat/Scarlet Fever episode of 1978 has been the longest period of illness I have had.I blame the health freak man I live with who has scared away all those good bugs that keep your immunity up and has filled every glass container large and small with a plethora of organic foods.
My biology is constructed of the same stuff fine delicate instruments are made from. It tick tocks along harmoniously if fueled with daily amounts of milk chocolate, gluten laden carbs, processed meats and vats of glistening butter. If not tampered with, I assume I would have perfect health and a long productive life. Sadly I fear this is not to be if I am to cohabit with my one true sera, sera.

Explosion in Okanagan registers 97 on Richter Scale

My apologies to aircraft flying over, watercraft on lake, and people undergoing micro surgery but you knew it was going to happen at some point didn't you? The whole Satellite not working, down to 1 barely functioning local channel in only 1 room and on the cusp of the fall season of Reality television. Again people so sorry if I have caused you pain but relax, 14 months 10 days and 12 hours of patient waiting through crappy TV reception has come to an end and I have been served. It always is about me.

Techno Geek....NOT!

Today, I was at Staples upon store opening... ummm 8 am..ish. Day before I had popped in to talk to Charlie about my camera and the fact that the Internal Memory would not switch off when the Memory Card was installed. Charlie said; "bring her in", just like Marlboro Man might say when opening the gate to the corral to let the cattle pass. I digress....8 am and I am asking young girl child manager if I could speak to Charlie. "We have no one here named Charlie". Average height,youngish dark haired man. Description did not ring her bell. Nice fellow, understanding of camera problems....wait that's him I shriek, practically throwing her to the floor as I rush to reach Charlie. Oh she says,"that's Craig...good thing you're not having to ID someone in a police line up." Charlie...known to Staples as Craig....60ish grey hair stocky gentleman, had changed since I had last seen him...yesterday... but still was a fine help with my camera and had me out the door in 10 minutes....slight problem in not pushing Memory Card down hard enough. Techno Geek, I'm not.

Thankyou so much for your enthusiastic response to my polymer nude bracelets. Its so so gratifying and affirming that so many appreciate great art and the woman's delicious form. This afternoon ...well about 1 hour ago I pulled myself from my bunk, only to discover it was September my how time flies when you are comatose. I am just happy to be with ya all. A run in with an Ebola/cholera/bubonic bug laid me flat for hmmm....lets count 4 nice to talk to you all again. I will be back in full studio production once I have a spare hand, presently both are busy blowing,shoving meds in or hanging on to the great white telephone calling Europe.
