For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw Pumpkins!
Halloween became a huge part of our life ;)
Visually it is the most stimulating time of year for me- that and Christmas.
I get it finally.
Sitting here for hours on end, forcing myself to think about my favorite holiday decorations and memories, cookies, foods, costumes! Self help ;-)
We also enjoy carving Pumpkins & the seeds!
This year I think I'll actually try to cook some pumpkin.
The girls and I found a 'great pumpkin dog cookie' recipe on PIN.
Not long now.. I hope all have a safe & happy Halloween.
Poppy is so playful! She is out of that baby stage and now into playing, fetching, tug of war and chase! Today she was running with a stuffed toy 3 times her size and tripping every other step. She has also taken to sitting in the toy basket, to guarantee first dibs, I guess. It is a continual source of amusement for me and all who visit.
I had a visit - I can't get over Poppy all over my best bud Cathy below! She was on her lap and showering her is kisses!
All my girls love Cathy as you can see! Of course they do! But, sure enough as Cathy pats them - her nose gets itchy and she starts to sneeze - lol, but they cannot resist and clearly neither can she. Just looking at this photo I can't help but smile. I had to share.
Cathy will kill me she's not big on photos (neither am I) but not to share an image of love - Look at Poppy's tail! Wagging so fast it's a blur! Cathy could not even speak between kisses and giggles.
Daisy and Poppy are best friends. I am blessed to have Cathy as my best friend for several years now. She is 'THAT ONE' friend. All you need. She has seen me at my best, worst, prettiest and scariest, she actually told me today she 'Liked' my hair and I was thinking - Oh, you are such a good friend (heehee) ! She has shared tears, cried, laughed and hugged me a lifetime of hugs. She does not judge me - not even when I answer the door at 3 in my flannel P.J.'s. Or when I show her my next craft creation - she's ready to sign up for a how to! She also is the one I call in an emergency - crafting or cooking...
She inspires creativity and makes me want to be a better person.
All we need is one friend like that, I actually have a couple... but Cathy is my Bud.
I love her. If she ever tries to smuggle Poppy out of here, I shall show her no mercy.
Who does not love Pooh!? I do! Winnie the Pooh!
I do not love to cook, but over the years I have been given a few cookbooks and I can't part with this one. It is simple and has a few drawings and quotes. Well I came across this and instantly thought MEDICATED! So easy - just trade up the butter for medicated butter or I used Medicated coconut oil.

I love medibles, especially when you are not feeling well. I have never been a cigarette smoker and only have a couple of puffs with the bong a day, usually at night when my pain is more intense. I'm not really a joint smoker -it burns my throat, what ever works...
I enjoy edibles and these are perfect. I LOVE LEMON.
I made them - it was easy IMO, MUST stir constantly. I only went the 7 minutes and it is a soft toffy, the next batch will be the brittle so I can break up some for travel.
To think in a few months canadians wont have the option of making thier own edibles.
A much safer and easier way for many to medicate. Especially those who can not and do not want to smoke. I smoke because my twitch reacts almost instantly to a bong hit. I can get a break for a few minutes - the bong it is. As for arthritis - edibles are best for me - it is more of a soft body high... I like to be in control of my medibles, I have work, chores and stuff to do - I don't want to be stoned on the sofa in front of the TV unable to function, if that was the case I'd take OXY.
I MAKE the strength I KNOW I NEED for MY body. Enough said.
Edibles as I understand will be considered illegal in a few month.
Who are the criminals?
Recipe from the Book: The Pooh Cook Book
Milne/Ellison McClelland & Stewart
Some available on E bay - great book for kids and adults! <>< xox
Note* recipe below is just how I make it, try to research a few and see what one you prefer and I let it simmer longer than an hour most times.. usually 3
I only had to research the side effects of the most common OXY.
I do not understand why someone would NOT try Cannabis first.
Yes I do.
Lies and lack of education on the subject.
I believe Cannabis should be someone's first choice as it IS safer than most if not all options available.
I know one of the main reasons my body needs Cannabis is nausea.
I have difficulty maintaining between 115 and 125, I don't like me at 115, and I never in my life thought it would ever be a problem but it is. Cannabis help me eat.
It creates the desire.
It also can make things appear to: 'this is the best tasting pizza ever!' LOL - true.
It's not fun being too skinny and I can't afford a new wardrobe.
Now read the side effects for the prescribed anti nausea medication I have-
PMS ONDANSETRON 8mg :
^ THIS MUST change. Cannabis is a legally recognized medicine in this country, prescribed by Dr.s WE should NOT be forced to use other medications.
SO for those side effects alone ^^^ !? Why would you not at least try cannabis first?
The facts are in the PROOF is here. Google.
Have you watched the Doc. By Dr. Gupta?
I guarantee you, YOU will be better educated on the subject.
YOU OWE that to yourself.
I added the link to make it easy for you xox Because I love you and want you to be healthy and happy.
This is one drawing I wish you could see in person. I scan at a poor resolution, one that can't be duplicated with out loss of detail. I finish paintings using white and this one just pops ;-)
I really enjoyed doing it. It is a gift for a friend.
Here we worry about medicine and growing and there now they are worry about the soil under their feet and growing food is more of a concern. I’ve read several times over the years that planting Cannabis can help clean and repair the soil. Why not at least try?!
Over politics? I think it’s a bit late for that. What ever it takes at this point is what the Japanese Government owes it’s people. Owes US the rest of the people that share this planet to plant this PLANT. Now.
Here is a link to an interesting related article:http://www.cannabisculture.com/content/2013/10/16/Can-Hemp-Marijuana-and-Mushrooms-Fix-Fukushima-Part-1-What-Happened
If all you can do is raise awareness than do that, or think about them, send them good vibes and love. No one likes to wonder if what we feed our children is killing them and the Japanese don’t have much of a choice right now. ;-(
I just made friends with a few people from Japan - one day I hope to visit. It’s so awesome having FB to see into their daily lives. I’m grateful for that on several levels. The differences... then you start to notice the same.
The same crimes worldwide, against people. People standing up for something that is wrong in their country.
Protests, punishment and in some cases ‘lack of’. India and rape.
I think we should know, and should say - wow, I am lucky that is not happening here. BUT THEN speak up and say “Really, in this day?!! - Should WE (as humans) allow that to be happening anywhere to each other? SPEAK UP!
Do you think you are here to live in the shadows without opinion? Then why have a brain. ^ ^^ This is me speaking to myself in my head. ^^^ LOL
I find me very hard to ignore.
Over a plant...
Today is ThanksGiving and there is a turkey in the oven and one in the garage! LOL
Sitting here working on this fall drawing my furry family and I have much to be thankful for. Yesterday we spent with family, I invited myself to my aunts, she was not having thanks giving but invited me to my cousins and then I called my cousin and invited us! LOL It was all good. We also brought Poppy! She met her two 'cousins' and very quickly showed them she is small but Mighty! They all got along great and a fun day was had by all.
It was so nice to just 'hang out'. We had our first Deep fried Turkey and I could not believe HOW fast or how good! I would have no clue it was deep fried, still not something I'd do, it made me nervous standing near it. Mmmmmmm.... getting hungry all over again!
Drawing thinking I have so much to be thankful for - Norm starts his new job! The company sounds amazing and the boss a nice guy (a welcome change), Storm is happy dong what he loves to do - and what ever he does he does it well, I get to draw everyday and spend time with my 'girls'. we are all still alive and somewhat healthy! ;) That alone is worth shouting THANK YOU!
Yippie! Give thanks!
We are going for Thanks Giving dinner! I invited us to my cousins - LOL, and then e mailed her to see if it was o.k. She said YES!!
I am excited! Poppy is coming as well (I’m a bit nervous to leave her a full day still - she is soooo tiny) Well, anyone who knows me KNOWS I’d rather spend 8 hours crafting than 2 hours cooking - So I don’t bake to take - i make!
Here’s the thing - my cousin is pretty darn talented and crafty herself (as is her family) so what to make- Pallet craft! Something for fall!
This is what I came up with - It is NOT an original Idea I think I came across something like it on PIN But I ‘fine tooned it’. Instructions are under each image ;-) have fun!
Happy Thanks Giving!
