This is our daughter and Stephen from this Thanksgiving

I am sharing a link that is really important to me. Our son in law was involved in a hit and run accident when whe was running along a road near his house and is in intensive care . He has a lot of injuries and his recovery will take a long time and the family has lost thier source of income while he is recovering which could be a full year. They have three small girls and things are going to be pretty hard for them this next year.

Our son in law is a member of the National Guard for 12 years now and one of his militiary buddies has set up a gofundme campaign to help them with expenses .

here is the link it is for the Clemmons family.

He was accused of murdering and burning his ex wife. We ask? We must ask about our legal system. Why was this man walking our streets at all. He thankfully has left our world, in the early hours of this morning.

But he left, after he murdered a young mother of 3 children, who was trying to protect a pregnant friend and the Manager of the Lindt Cafe in Sydney who was trying to unarm him.

Also today – A 21 year old was arrested in Melbourne, murdering a man who was being a good Samaritan, intervening in an argument between the man…

Christmas decorFirst thing I notice is her mantel (remember I have mantel envy) which is a repeat of the garland treatment at the front door.  In an understated way, it gives the room a perfect holiday feel.

Christmas decorNext, my eye is drawn to a table top where there is a wonderful painted gourd surrounded by a bowl of clementines and a vase of dried hydrangeas.  Again, so simple, effectively demonstrating that less is more.

The Snow Fell And There Went The Feast

My last post sounded so nice right lol well I cooked and prepared for our family feast but so did the weather.
On Wednesday as the last of my cooking was complete the snow began to fall.  I even went out with another Garden Club member to hang 30 swags we had made on Sunday throughout the downtown.  We were wet and cold but please with the holiday color in town taking shape.  We swung in for a cup of hot chocolate to warm us on the ride home.  Tomorrow we have 84 tropical Poinsettias arriving for delivery OH BOY!  You see Wednesday night we lost all power due to the heavy wet snow and just our first of this soon to be winter season wait it is still fall right.

Today is Sat. and this morning we got the power back  It was 32 degrees F. brrr  we did have one warm spot in the house the 4 us cuddled up in and lots of veggies as we never did get together with family down the road as they too had no party and moved it 50 miles south so we stayed home and off the nasty roads.  Maybe we will get another chance at Christmas.

I painted during daylight with melted snow :)  over on Folsom Mill Studio blog I will post the results this is a shot of Spicy Cranberry Sauce I made and second shot of our world today :)

In The Old Days We Travelled By Foot

In The Old Days We Travelled By Foot, no wonder we all got to grandma’s house on time, for family gatherings.

Family and friends now live with so many miles between they must travel by air and rail as well as packing up the family car. No wonder today in the United States has become a day of nightmares for all even if you are just making the dinner, you begin to worry about all of them travelling to you.

Today will be one of epic weather events up and down the east coast,  in fact I am not even sure of any other disastrous  weather  across the US as we are just getting bombarded with news of doom and gloom and traffic nightmares.  Is it too late to hope for it to stay out to sea :)

I am hoping you all have a wonderful day tomorrow either at work or with family and maybe you will watch football and nap after the huge meal or go shopping for all the deals each store is trying to out do the others with, for your hard earned buck just please stay safe out there,  I do not have to tell you it is crazy out there.

We will clear most of what we get for snow tonight so we can get out of our yard by mid day and travel not so far to my brothers home for just a few hours of laughter and fun with family.  I made fresh cranberry sauce with a zip.  I stuffed the butternut squash and mushrooms no green bean casserole for this girl.  I made a hot artichoke and spinach dip that is so very cheesy not sure I will have room for the BIRD!

Tomorrow I hope to be the start of a new family tradition of loving and forgiving one another for being human with our own heartache and pain and know that life is worth fighting for and that family is all we truly have.  We all have faults and problems of our own and you know what it comes down to the miles in between.  No longer sitting around each others tables and seeing what each other are going through on a day to day basis makes misunderstandings more probable.

Cal your family and tell them you love them very much.  Swing by if they are close enough and give them a really good hug.
I swear if after 10 years I have been invited to be apart of my once loving family before Dad died anything is possible.

Keep the faith!

Should you find yourself alone stop at a shelter to help feed the people who have lost their way and families or go to a local hospital and spread some love and tell some stories and watch the difference one person can truly make, what ever you do please do not spend your day alone dwelling on what others have done to you.  That would be better than any turkey dinner.

Peace and Love to each of you and a big hug too!

Travelling by foot is the easy way

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.

http://www.jessieveedermusic.com

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

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.

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.
