Sparkling or Still

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/still-or-sparkling/

Having each day to do as I please is really too much time.

I may have driven a rig across country and racked up all those miles, not only 5 days

a week but usually 7 though now I feel busier as I learn new things

to fill my hours of daylight.  Then again maybe I always did

too much, just packed my day from the moment I opened my eyes till

I could no longer hold them open.

I saw highways filled with traffic and streets filled with people.

Now with each new day I see my yard filled with wildlife on the ground as well as in the trees.

I cook every meal no longer depending on a roach coach.

I never curl my hair like I used to when I drove with the big boys,  makeup no longer

desired as well.

Some days as I paint I look down shocked to see I never truly got dressed to

welcome the day.  Yes life is good being still but my world still sparkles all around me.

One of my favorite parts about making and performing music is meeting the people who have found they can relate to the songs I write. I’ve been performing out and about in support of my last album “Nothing’s Forever” since it’s release in 2012.

Since then I’ve hosted CD release parties, been hired as the opening act for big names, have been the main event myself, joined up with another band of great musicians, sat around campfires and house parties, performed at bars, major events, and festivals surrounded by so much intimidating talent it made my heart beat out of my chest and,

of course, met hundreds of wonderful people along the way who take the time to tell me that they can relate…

To the songs about rural living. To the cowboys in the music. To leaving the light on for the people they love. To the weather so cold it…

Hi Everyone!

Surgery went OK and the patient came home the next day but has had a horrible headache since so we will see the doctor in a few hours to find out why.  Seeing the doctor 6 days before his appointment is not really a great sign but I would rather be safe then sorry.  OH wait it is HIM lol but he makes ME :)

As you can see by my re-blogs here from my art blog I have stayed busy and upbeat since the last of the colored leaves are falling with this horrid wind.  I swear I will not complain too much with what I see just 6 hours west of me.

Trying to catch up little by little on all of your spots here in the blogosphere nice seeing what you are up to.

Will being having a Thanksgiving with Mom and my brother which has not been done for 10 years so you know I am happily planning on what goodies I can bring to the table to celebrate together seems just good enough for me.  Can we kiss and make up I pray that is in the cards.  The day for me will be all about giving thanks as it should be.

For all of you in the States and great sides you think maybe different but perfect for my first foray into the family fold again :)
I will make my spicy Cranberry sauce for sure as we love a little heat as does my baby brother.

I have been a painting fool to say the least and add a few now and then into my online stores to be used as a print of phone skins and even baby clothes :)  you can follow my Facebook page at Folsom Mill Studio if you need to be flooded by color.

As the days get gray in color here and we wait for the first big dump of snow I will just add water and mix my colors well and fill the days with COLOR and good will for mankind.

Please take care of yourselves and those you adore.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if I get busy and can not pop in before next week.

HUGS

For millions of Americans, last winter was one to forget. It was one of the coldest winters in roughly two decades. That was thanks in part to a phenomenon known as the polar vortex.

Happy November!

Hi Everyone!  Our first snow is due to fall between tonight and Monday and they say the winds will be fierce at times :) maybe it will blow it off the roof!  Yes tis the season once again one day raking the next shoveling never a dull moment in New England.

We put the yard to bed.  Ran the mower out of gas and brought the snow blower up to shed closer to the house and stored the rakes for the garden hoes too and brought up snow shovels and ordered coal to keep us warm.  We use propane but they charge an arm and leg and it never keeps this place warm.

I cook and clean and seldom leave the house these days.  You know I love making things be it beaded pieces or glass items crocheting even but with painting it is sheer happiness.  Not a care or stress just wet and let it go :)

Today I completed two pieces I had in different stages of completion and then whipped up a bunch of Abstract Watercolors I will sell for others to mat and frame and cheer up a spot on their wall or table or maybe even a piano!

I will share with you then add to my blog My Portfolio with sizes and prices.  It was a stress free first day of November here in NH as I hope it was with each of you.

Take care and thanks for looking I love feed back you know.

Size Matters/ It was on a dead-end street

Far from the city we had known.  Suburbs of Boston.  No longer a rental in a three story but a one level ranch.  It sat on just an acre of dirt where it was new and still void of grass.  It was a great family home situated on a quiet dead-end street.  Mom still lives there and we do what we can to help around the house so she can stay.  A true family home.

In a video posted to YouTube by America’s Funniest Home Videos, a German shepherd does not want to stop swimming and throws quite the vocal fit when asked by her owner to get out of the water to go home.

The video description read: “She got to keep swimming after her wonderful theatrical performance. No dogs’ hearts were actually broken in the making of this video.”

Son and Art in NYC Was Perfect

My son had his show in NYC  Curated by Peter Doig,  who by the way was so nice.  He likes Mike’s work with spray paint and that speaks volumes.  He is an Artist first so he gets what one puts into what they do,  you know the true passion for the medium in which you choose to create with.

Some other things happened yesterday about suppertime.  I walked in before even seeing Mike and introduced myself to his Mom you know the one I chose from the Couple Bio’s at the adoption agency.  To say she had no clue as to who I was is a understatement but as I said her name and reached my hand out and said my name the question on her face became a smile.

Two Mom’s meet for first time(he is 37 lol).  She then introduced me to her friend also an artist in her own right as well as a  dear family friend of theirs and then her husband,  Mike’s Dad and then came a chance to meet the daughter she had after adopting my son.  Then her son in law and two precious grandchildren.  She asked if Mike knew I was there and I assured her no,  that was the best part after not seeing him in five years and him being so close to us I had to come see him and his show.

Mike was down a hallway and as her and I began to walk towards him he looked up and was floored first by the fact I was there in person and second because both he and his Mom were side by side laughing.  We hugged and I leaned down to pat his sweet dog, who had also made the trip east while my little girl(JT) and her daddy were just steps away from all the action in our truck.  I had sent him in to let me know if my son had arrived yet and he came out and said boy had he changed since he had come to the house that day we first met,  he no longer looked like the man who had fathered him but now more like one of my brothers:) yes life is good!  So after we were done hugging I told him I was going outside so Ron could come in as JT was in the truck to which he replied “Let’s go!”  Now I felt bad as people were streaming in to look at Art and meet the Artist’s  and here he was looking to bail.  He hates shows,  he hates the spotlight on him though when asked questions I would swear he is at ease or maybe last night was different maybe by 2 worlds colliding because I was once enough brave enough to do what was right,  it helped him to smile.  I hope so and anything one can do for their child no matter how old they are you do right?  We talked and hugged and I met some of his friends as well.

We left home at 11 am and stopped in CT to see friends and let JT walk around and do her thing as we stretched out legs for the last leg of the trip.  The show was from 6 to 8 pm and we made it to the gallery at 5 and found a spot in the shade of the cities huge skyscrapers.  It was warm just 4+ hours from NH but nice.  I walked JT along the NYC streets for a change of pace as we had time to spare I hate being late to anything.

I would say the show was a success. As I said my goodbyes at 7:45 the place was packed.  People pumped on Art within the walls of White Columns Art Gallery on Horatio Street not far from the 9-11 Memorial, which many of you may have seen all over the TV the day before.  I had hoped to see the lights shining upward but they were not on when we got there even though night had fallen over this beautiful city, yes Boston is my home but NYC is a close second and even more special now.

Time for some lousy photos taken with phone inside the gallery should you fall in love with a piece and want to call it yours you can contact the gallery for details as I never thought to ask what the prices were.  He also does custom work so if you want to have something done by a Graffiti Artist and not on the side of your building, lol here is his email tierneypaints@yahoo.com.  Sorry for bragging but I do adore him and want him to be even more successful than even he can dream for himself.

The link above explains it all.  Have fun time is running out!

I signed up for a free, 6 or 8 week class, presented by a local newspaper here in New Hampshire. It is about writing  Memoirs.

My story.

It is about TRUTH ( though the publisher of Million Little Pieces could fill you in on more of that)

Our first homework is to write a piece on a harrowing experience lol how do I choose?  We could also do it on a person we had a relationship of some kind with and how that changed us.  Both tough for me as most of my long time followers know.

She went around and asked us to say why we were there and who we are.  There was a 83 year old man who said he came as he would like to tell the story of his family in a fun and lively way I can only hope I make it to that age and have his spunk :)

There was another who had written lots of poetry and was interested in this writing form.  The lady on my right new our teacher and she was not sure if she wanted some day to write a novel, autobiography or memoir but she was all in. I said I was there to learn the art of telling a sad story and capturing the reader and in the end finding joy in the read :) I am always looking for the Happy Ending.  The woman to my left has many amazing stories to tell as she has also lived a life such as mine full of very colorful people. The next lady wrote on her laptop the whole time in class maybe she will write of her day in class as I am :)  The last student that arrived a half hour late was close to the other man’s age and seemed to have the same intent leaving a story for those in his family who followed so the story of who they all were would not be lost.  I want that too but that will be in a different form I think but this class will teach me a way to keep the reader engaged  as they flip the pages of a book I hope to write you know the type old photos, family stories and recipes passed down through the ages.  No war stories for me as sadly I fought a long war and it left me broken but here.  So yes I had fun and I came home to quickly write three pieces that we will read aloud and discuss so we can learn what to do to make them better.  Here on my blog it is easy I am talking to friends.

Now comes the good part she says to me “Eunice you have some extra homework I want you to read Liars Club” lol maybe she didn’t believe me :)  Have you read it?  Is it good?  I must head to the library and see if they have it and hope I can get through it to the end by next Wed. night.

Have a great weekend

I am off to see my son tomorrow and sadly mom has bowed out from the drive down she is just not feeling well with all her medical issues I am sad but OK and he doesn’t know I am going so he will not be disappointed in no meeting her.

I will shoot video of his show and bore you all with too many photos I am sure :)

I will also be down the street from the 9-11 Memorial in NYC and maybe as I leave the city for home I can see the lights in the night sky.  I continue to pray for Peace around the world and for countries to get along but after the speech last night I am even more scared of the future for our people and the babies coming into the world today.

I have a dear friend who saw me starting out to paint with Watercolor and she gathered all kinds of things for me.
There were tubes of unused watercolor paints, a couple of brushes and some wonderful paper that I am still afraid to use as I seem to be saving it for REAL ART.  Funny how a simple gift of her left overs and hand me downs  has empowered me to paint daily,  oh wait did I tell you about the books!  She gave me beautiful books on Watercolor techniques that I read and try to copy from.  I thought I would never want to look at another’s work, I am trying to do it on my own as I am too much of an individual, setting a course out on her own from what resides in my head, yes it is full after being away from any kind of art for 40+ years.

I am so grateful for my friend Jane who always has my back in such artful endeavors see her work at http://www.janercapone.com

Thanks Jane for the gifts of what you no longer needed xo

NEW YORK– A list of 5 million Gmail addresses and passwords appeared on a Russian Bitcoin forum Wednesday

It is still unclear how anyone obtained the vast collection of usernames and passwords. Google says its servers were not breached. The list appears to be a collection of passwords exposed in previous hacks — likely on users’ own computers, not Google’s systems.

“We have no evidence that our systems have been compromised,” said Google spokeswoman Caroline Matthews.

In fact, there’s no telling yet whether the list is even authentic, the company said.

However, Google is warning affected users to take steps to further protect their Gmail accounts, such as creating a stronger password and using an extra security feature called two-step authentication.

Hi

Me again, yes the birth mom of a very smart and oh so talented guy.  He has put his nose to the grindstone as they say and has made a connection with a very important person in the art world.  Anyone who has seen what he can do with a spray can, will not be surprised that he is making it once again into the big time,  NEW YORK CITY.

He was there once for a charity auction, one painting on the wall making a huge statement and bringing in so much more money than he ever dared to dream.  They had to give him a exhibition :)  This one is being curated by a man by the name of Peter Doig have you heard of him and the records he set with the sale of a painting titled “White Canoe” never mind the rest of his body of work.  My hope is he is a good man with only Mike’s best interest at heart.  From what I have read about Mr. Doig  I am sure he will be in great hands but moms worry and most only want the very best for their child, don’t they.  So yes I am so very proud of him and all the years he has worked hard to get noticed and now he has made it to the ultimate place to be seen, NYC!

So if you are free on Friday,  September 12 and are in the neighborhood of White Columns Art Gallery please stop in for his Exhibit Opening from 6 to 8 pm.  I will add the link to gallery page for the dates his works of art will be shown with them.
I wish him the very best and a wonderful showing!  Yes he has had plenty out in JH WY with all of the friends and locals there but NYC and say London are the place to be!
Blow Their Minds Mike!

Hello September!

Perenial Sunflowers Rock

Happy September Everyone!

Today in the States it is Labor Day a day in which we celebrate the worker mostly with yummy BBQ’s  Though as I see most retail spaces are open which means the holiday unless celebrated on Sat. and Sun. their days off, well you get the point.  I am retired from 100 hour work weeks in a big old truck so I will celebrate for those who can’t.  No beer or burgers though but I may roast some yummy New England Sweet Butter Corn on the grill and cut it off the cob and add to my salad.  You see having your favorite store of 40 years closed for 6 weeks had me buying takeout or eating weird things, time to watch the waist once again with hopes of whittling it down some more I hate being so inactive I must get strong to battle that damn roof in another 2 months :).

My wish is for September to be kind to all of us we have enough on our mind with the woes of the world and the evil who resides within.  Scary times my friends scary indeed.

Stay safe in your travels and I will try my best to keep up with you all.

Eunice

NORTHFIELD, Ill., — Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling 7,691 cases of select varieties of regular Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.

A supplier did not store an ingredient used in this product in accordance with Kraft’s temperature standards.

While unlikely, this could create conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and/or food borne illness; therefore, the company is issuing the recall as a precaution.

Kraft has had no consumer illness complaints for this product associated with this recall.

The affected product is limited to four varieties with “Best When Used By” dates of February 20, 2015, and February 21, 2015

The affected product was shipped to customers across the United States. It was not distributed outside of the United States.

I told you about our little battle with a CEO the board put in charge and the beloved ousting of a true leader that all loved working for in http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com/2014/08/15/the-end-maybe-near/ here is the rest of the story……….

The walkout/boycott lasted 6 long weeks.  Speaking personally for me I just used almost all I had up in the cupboards. I made just a few trips to Wal-Mart for canned dog and cat food, coffee and Half and Half, toilet tissue, I shopped the farmers markets for veggies and one steakhouse 3 miles away has a butcher shop and they had a mega sale on hamburger at just $1.99 per pound. On that day I picked up 10 pounds, there goes the diet :).  I will use it for pasta, meatloaf, tacos as well as a couple of days for burgers on the grill after all it is Labor Day here in the US were we celebrate the American Worker. 

Now you see we do have a story for us to look up to.  Our area of the US known as New England is full of very determined people and after 6 long fought weeks we did what businesses here never thought could happen.  We by standing together as one workers and customers alike we brought this family run grocery chain to their knees and made them yell uncle lol no not really but they did indeed see our resolve growing stronger and not weaker as they had hoped and finally in the 11th hour approved the sale of the whole business to the ousted CEO Artie T DeMoulas.  of Market Basket fame.  The only leader the workers and customers would come back into the stores to shop for.  Have you heard the news where you live?  Give a Thumbs Up for the little guy WE WON!  We have Unions scratching their heads and other companies realizing the same could indeed happen to them if they don’t play nice. Be fair.  Be kind to people and not always make it about the billions you will earn.  Here is a link to a real writer’s story though I bet his cabinets were not empty when he sat down to compose his.
http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-market-basket-ceo-arthur-t-demoulas-20140828-story.html    The motto here has been NEVER GIVE UP, Never ever think there is nothing you can say or do!  Stand up for what is right. 

In the end he bought his cousin out for over 1.5 billion dollars US while his cousin also an Arthur was over in Greece getting married.  I love my brand new Market Basket store and will shop tonight for the upcoming week and set about filling at least 2 cabinets with canned goods :) you just never know when an emergency will arise when you must live off them. Grandma always canned and I would have but with all the injuries and surgeries this year a full garden just was not in the cards for us.
I will end this by saying POWER TO THE PEOPLE WE DID WHAT THEY SAID COULD NOT BE DONE, we stuck together to right a wrong and I am so proud of each and every worker and more so for the customers of Market Basket you joined in to have your voice heard and indeed they were!  Happy Labor Day to you all.

You, Robot/OH My Knees

Postaday asks if you had a Robot what would you have it do.  I would have to say I would love one to weed my gardens. 
Oh my knees are hurting bad and to have a shiny machine going up and down each row,  gently pulling just the weeds and allowing all my pretty flowers to take center stage now that I would call a perfect garden helper!Hibiscus In Bloom
