Tug of war, 3 way, in my bedroom last night. Daisy, Scruffy & Poppy.
As I 'tried' to read.
I gave in and enjoyed the show instead.
Still in the process of bunny painting & more.
I made a decidison to try to stay off FB, one that shouldn't be difficult.
You see, I am tired of people messaging me - "I no loner see your page.." ,
there is not too much I can do about it.
I don't know why, nor do I care.
When last logged onto FB, coffee in hand- ready to greet the day - determined to make it a positive day - I learned about the woman who went shopping for baby clothes on craigs list.
Then, I saw a nasty remark 'one patient' made to another, stress from a court case no doubt.
I did not see this on my 'Georgia Toons' page- I saw it on the other and thought, why do I bother.. click.
I was in tears over the news story about the baby. I know why I do not read the newspaper, it's full of stories related to upset & sell papers, not caring about the mental health of a world, let alone country. I was taking a break in news in general. I did not know about the plane that crashed in Europe - and Norm stopped telling me the second he saw the look on my face.
I can't do it. It consumes me.
I am well aware that I have a condition that does not need any aggravation. Not that any of us do, but some people love the drama, they must, they make remarks then dive right in. No thanks, my days of unnecessary nasty drama are done. People are murdering over STUFF. Women are cutting babies out of stomachs.. so little nasty remarks towards each other are the icing on the cake. It's never nice.
Being mean is out of fashion, style, season!
I didn't anticipate the notices from my friends, I forgot to turn them off; it will be the first thing I do when I log on again.
I am curious, what are they creating? Or 'so and so' posted a new photo! What could it be!
-You know what Georgia - It can all wait.
Because the facts are I spent way more time with Norm this weekend, way more time painting during the week and making myself happy. Focusing on all that can go right instead of wrong. Part of the battle.
We need to do this - or else we become part of the problem.
Another thing I had not anticipated was my friend Kerry telling me in an e mail, Todd (her husband) has been incarcerated. ;( She said the info is on his FB page.
Just the thought brings me to tears.
The rest of the fucking world embraces, Willie is opening stores, Big corporations are starting to make money, all kinds of product surfacing - and my friend Todd is STILL GOING to jail!! For growing plants legally in the USA and with tax stamps that he paid for his plants, a government that is well aware. His family ripped apart. I was going to log on but thought no, it would just make me cry.
I will wait out my week, until Wednesday.
I was also reminded it was 'Twister ups' birthday. Darn those notices.
If you want to see my FB posts I suggest you select 'Get Notifications', as seen below.
I will be returning on Wednesday to FB but will treat my page as FB has it.
I'll post - POSITIVE, thought provoking, no idle bantering, no name calling, no nasty.
It may just be FB, but I will choose to use it for good, smiles or get off.
There is enough nasty already out there who needs any more?
If this is the direction it's going - I'll pass.
Those who wanted to say hello did, vis a message sent to me through here.
Less FB, MORE doing what I am to be doing.
Now it's back to building a bunny with my hunny!
Please check back, when I have Todds address, I'll ask that you send him some positive vibes! My prayers have been with him since the start. I know everything for a reason.. I've no doubts in my mind Todd will come out stronger. I just with I understood it right now. I don't.
Time to paint.
xox Have Faith
Everyday is play day. Ive decided. it's official. lol
I feel rested and wide awake! Ready to paint!
What do you think about the Raven and the snail? Hmmmm
Photos of my painting and my Poppy and her new perch!
I wonder how long I'll stay awake.
BTW I'm still taking a FB break, I won't even log in, silly me forgot to 'turn off' notifications and a few of my talented friends are posting. It is so tempting.. lol no.
Time to Paint!
Not speaking has its advantages, I feel better, my face not so sore.
I think more and more creatively.
I Listen More.
I remember to ask more.
to be continued.
Next a Big happy toothy Snail! & Toad.
FB, do not lead me into temptation with your automated messages - I should have turned that off. Oh well.. it can wait. ;)
But F*ck you! You re not the you, you use to be too!
Time to think and think and think...
I AM not the me I use to be.
I AM still all that my creative, loving mind is and was and wants to be.
Snails have teeth. I just learned that today, listen to this:
http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2013/08/02/208236477/why-dentists-should-fear-snails?ft=1&f=1007 How cool is that - lol
I am getting a pet snail.
'I will hug him and pet him and call him... '
& Paint him. NOT him... on Canvas.
I feel like a snail.
I use to eat them... I don't think I will anymore.
Then I found a book this morning! My next reading adventure... lol
I tell you, I ask God for his advice constantly, and reading recommendations too of course - My friend Cathy teases me with
"You listen better to "God whispers" than anyone else I know!"
My mind whispers... you are Not who you use to be, You are more... Go Paint.
xox Have Faith! <><
Who does not love animals may as well stay away from here. lol
Below are photos of my best friends. Two legs and 4.
I have very few friends that invite over but those that come often are shown how much they are loved... by me and my girls!
Like it or Not!
Pint size Poppy has to get in her loving and has mastered the 'neck manauver'... with the help of my son! Teaching her to ride on his shoulder comfortably - she takes to it and stays there!
If you are sitting you are a potential pillow for poppy. Cathy is allergic - BUT they all love her as you can see as she sits on my sofa for a visit.
She visited today - unexpected but ALWAYS welcome.
I had just sent out a message DO NOT DISTURB.. lol - she missed it.
I am taking real break.
No FB, No E mail, no PHONE.. nada.
Snail mail - or you are out of luck.
Peace, prayer and PAINT.
DRAW, Ask, Believe, Receive. ( not what you think...)
I am not alone, I am never alone.
If I want company I have them 4 of them - ready to play, go for a walk, run around in the back yard or lie on the sofa with a good book and snuggle, here they are ready and willing.
I know dog haters- I don't invite them to my home - I don't care who they are.
The last thing I want my dogs to feel is uncomfortable in their home because of someone that dislikes animals. We are not that way. We show them love as they show us. It's why they never run away.
Poppy was locked out once, in our confusion of arriving home - and stood at the front door and barked to get in! Thank God.
I have no tolerance for people who abuse dogs.
I do believe they show little respect for others as well,
pay attention and decide for yourself.
WE are ONE on this planet.
We are not here to mistreat or abuse animals.
They are born to live, explore and 'be' as we are.
We are not here to mistreat each other. We do.
Who are the animals?
Some days I'm not so sure. I'm taking a break.
Some days I don't understand, feel blue and quite frankly - beat down.
The load seems to be too heavy to bare. I don't want to see all the nasty in the world.
After a bit of a teary visit, Cathy reassured me - I have reason to feel blue and be blue -
she knows I won't be for long. ;)
I won't because I have friends like Cathy in my life.
Until then.. I will blog - daily! For the next week at least.
And BE creative... focus on Teaching Only LOVE for that is what we are.
xox <>< Have Faith.
Wait until you see what she is making me! LOL
I'm not so much a fan of taking photos lately, if I want 'a good one' - I have to take several.
Just to appear 'normal', let alone look good. What do those words even mean anymore.
One thing I am fond of -these 'blue birds' of happiness. ;) LOL
They crack me up just to see them and I'm not alone... clearly or mac wouldn't have included them as an option. My mom was up today and wanted the birds... Storm and I smile at the sight of them. Perhaps I have spring and Robins on my mind!
Either way - as simple as it is - it's a bit of fun.
Speaking of fun - check out my friend Ivan's village - where he creates with his beautiful wife! > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz0n15_0H6A <
I WISH I was in Europe right now!
You have no idea. ;)
New Laughing Buddha tomorrow- the paint is drying now.
I started the day - what else, reading...
It took me a while, my mind is racing a million places. If only it had a passport - imagine how cool the 'stamps' would be ;)
Anyway - the first line was:
In quietness things are answered, and every problem quietly resolved.
I resolve to not speak.
So whats the first thing that happens - I get a request to 'Skype'. lol I checked it worked with my friend Marc. ;) It was so nice talking to him. I didn't even have a question and he helped me anyhow1 LOL Then I spoke with a new friend across the world.
Soon - I return to the dentist!
I finally got past my fear and went and had a somewhat, o.k. time, lol, it went better than expected and I have to return. The woman who cleaned my teeth was very nice, relaxing and a Documentary fan like myself of that was very cool! I recommended a few.
- well I was not enjoying speaking for a couple of days. Norm on the other hand.. lol
But this is the plan starting tomorrow , it is what it is ;) Quiet is always nice, and we can easily keep ourselves amused in this home - Norm renovating, me drawing. Sometimes Norm renovates in his mind, on the sofa.. watching MAcGiver. Hee hee hee
I draw and I have drawing to do. I am pleased with my new LB full of TLC. Not to be rushed.
A card for a friend thats been on my mind & a few drawings waiting too long.
Provided I am not inspired or too tired in between. Norm is making diner this evening!
One of our favourites and he insisted! Woot Woot! lol
So later when he is renovating I'll be drawing. Finishing L.B.
I am also taking a FB break.
Funny, one thing I'm 'not' worried 'about', the edibles case.
What judge would rule out edibles. We already won once- it's HC that has us in court again at your tax $. Come on? Think of the children is exactly right. The seriously ill children.. edibles is a nice way to take your medicine. ALSO the many adults that can't take pills and I'm one of them. I was speaking with a person who takes crazy stuff for her pain- and it's not working!! So what take it? Rot your insides out and suffer. She can't even think of cannabis due tot he amount of pain killers she is on.
Lets face it - IF a pharmaceutical company would have come up with a tasty cookie or anything like the things I have already tried, many made in kitchens, like mine and yours - that already it would have been done.
Powdered alcohol was approved. I already drew about it.
Please. How mixed up is that?
Quietly thinking about many things, asking God for assistance for each and every one, and then knowing he has done exactly that, I will continue to draw & Dream.
Until it warms up - we continue to enjoy a sunny day. Inside.
Oh, *duh* blush.. I finally found some 'comments' that needed to be approved, I don't really stay on top of that (in my spare time...) and wanted to say. Thank you .
I was very moved by your continued love and show of support.
I approve them first, I didn't use too until I saw some 'inappropriate' comments being posted - spam, links selling items. ;( Then I removed the option.
Georgia... On My Mind.
