Fabulous Sunday

It’s Sunday night and I still get that sinking feeling like I have homework or something to do before I go to bed.  I wonder why that is?  It was a beautiful day, sun was shining but it was cool outside and no humidity, the windows were open and fresh air entering the house.  I love the feeling I get when you sit back and see the sheer curtains blowing in the wind.   I love the new sunroom we added to the house more than I thought.  It’s so nice in the early morning (not to early though) to sit out there and listen to the birds and watch the baby geese grow up.

Mike’s aunt from Florida was over for dinner tonight and though she talks more than all my grandchildren together, it was nice to see her.  Her husband passed away a couple of years ago and she seems lonely.  Time moves to fast and this maybe the last time we see her as she is 84 and we don’t get to Florida much.

My friends mother is still hanging on and putting up great fight not to leave this world.  It’s hard on the children to watch but I can understand her will to hang tough.

Tomorrow is Monday and I need to find some crafts for my grandchildren to work on for Grandma Tuesdays.  I watch them on Tuesday’s trying to help my children out with babysitting needs during the summer months.  I’m also a little selfish as my daughter has a pool and I watch them at her house so I can get a little swimming and sun is as well.  It’s a good time with the kids, we have had some very interesting conversations.  I learn a lot from them.


About kboat

I’m a native of La Porte, Indiana. When I was growing up we didn’t have much money, so I made my gifts for others with materials I found out and around. I loved it. And I have to say I was pretty good at it. People always liked what I gave them. I went to work for 26 years as an employee of a major asphalt paving company. I began as a secretary and eventually made my way to office manager. Needless to say I mostly only dreamed about my art - filling my mind with many ideas. Although the company did take advantage of my skills once in a while. For example, I created in-house materials for an open house. I loved “keeping my hand in” whenever an opportunity presented itself. Then I retired. And ... funny thing ... all those pent-up ideas I used to dream about began to roll out. I joined ATC (Artists Trading Cards) on line, I took classes and tutorials and learned about the processes of creating art. Today, I pursue these learning opportunities to open myself to new ideas and techniques. I also love opportunities to assist in classes for special populations. I find I learn a lot from those who have no preconceptions about what they should be doing. I’m eager to learn new things. Mostly I don’t have any idea what I set out to make. I simply let the ideas find me. The result is a wide variety of media and expression triggered by my experiences in every-day life. I hope you enjoy my work. View all posts by kboat
