“Draw me, like one of your … wait!” NO! Not like any other girl!

So, I live with an artist.

Today, for the first time ever, Saturday, I said “Draw me!”

I meant draw us – for our mothers, for mothers day.

 

And I also said, “Not like I am right now”

Which, got a response of “That’s what everbody says!”

UG!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I, in my whole life, NEVER asked my honey, who is awesome at drawing, TO DRAW ME!

I did not want to be a ‘sheeple’

A sheep!

I just wanted an oringal pic for our moms!

I decided to draw him … and he could draw me …

imageCan you tell who is the artist?

I bet it’s hard. lol.

 

Anyway – here’s another video – I’ve been slacking of late – but he has shaved since the awesome drawing I did. 😉

The one thing I’m good at – is being casual in videos – so here you go.

Yup, that’s my honey.

When I mentioned him …. and how talented he was – I was not joking.

You know how every parent thinks their kid is cute?  But you refrain from agreeing and say something sweet anyway?

Not the case here.

Behind the Curtain

I had a post decided for today – and it was dark.  It was to be about my current mood – still ensconced in heart ache.  It was to be about  feeling Hopeless.  No longer expecting anything with any measure of confidence for myself – no longer cherishing or desiring with anticipation.

But as a believer in contagious moods and in keeping with looking for good – I made the decision to apply that to myself.

I declared today Pajama Day! And as I lay on my bed watching a movie – a ray of light found its way onto my television screen.

I paused the movie,  fetched a beautiful piece of material to cover the sheer curtain on the offending window and stopped.  And noticed.  And was inspired.

I give you – Behind the Curtain.

This is what I saw – and it caught my breath.  I had covered my Thai Buddha and plant while shutting out the light – and in the process,  brought some into myself.

I was fascinated and began to play.

I looked around my room for other suitable silhouettes.

And lastly – the ‘offending’ window – that brought unexpected light.

Mutating the Mundane

These are all things in my home photographed by me – the last being a painting I created that sits in a window.  I see beauty in all that surrounds me – I wanted to amplify it – this is what I see in the ‘ordinary’.
