That's my girl! Daisy got her bone and Poppy said sharing, sharing, sharing! It was/is very cute to watch. Daisy is the most patient dog - well she is when it comes to Poppy. It was too funny when Poppy dragged it under the coffee table. Daisy was out of luck.
I love my girls. Poppy is my service dog! I find when I need to I lie down and she is right with me, it helps to pat her and try to remain calm through attacks ;) I love my girls! My girlfriend visited and she said now that our kids are older the pets do take on a special meaning at Christmas. They get into it, the cat under the tree, the dogs at the gifts...
it is never boring. Although the first thing we remember are the Christmas mornings with Storm when he was small & Believed in Santa - we had fun. I do miss throwing carrots on the roof for the reindeer.
I have had a great weekend with my guys.
I look forward to the holiday officially starting on Tuesday!
I hope Santa is really good and restores power to all who need it before Christmas gets here!!! Sounds like many a turkeys might be BBQ If you must venture out DRIVE SAFE! . xox
Before I am anything I am a mom. AND very proud of it.
Storm was my gift the second my Dr. told me on my birthday I was pregnant.
I never forget He is the best gift I have ever been blessed with.
The seed of Love - For most of us it is a seed planted in love.
No matter HOW you feel 5, 15, and 20 years later (and more!) ;)
So A MOM first is what I am and I say to Storm all the time:
PLEASE DONT DRINK and drive!!! We all say this to our young adults.
We should be. We all need the reminder and Tis the season.
So many parents lose their children to alcohol and driving and let’s face it
Tis The SEASON! CHEERS!!! HO HO HOpe I don’t run into R.I.D.E.
^ How many of us have said it and still do. ^
Don’t drive if you are taking OXY and you feel high.
Don’t drive if you are taking cold medicine! That stuff use to knock me on my ASS!
Don’t drive if you are sick and can’t focus and feel like shit!
Don’t drive IF you feel impaired in any way!
I DONT Drive. - Which really sucks because Norm promised me a smart car for my 50th. But the last time I had the truck out I had an attack in a drive-through and felt really uncomfortable!! It is NOT worth it. Not just for me but for others.
PLEASE do not drive if ‘impaired’. *IMPAIRED = ON CELLPHONE!!
ALL of these reasons kill more daily than a driver strictly on cannabis.
I have yet to read of a case.
Cannabis for many - especially those in chronic pain helps them to Function & Focus- as does many medication for many people. I also know of a few that use it for anxiety of city driving!
I believe a driver should be judged by his actions rather than his medicine.
IT IS OUR OWN CHOICE to get behind a wheel.
With our Canadian winters we have enough difficulty driving *like the 20 car pile up just this past week on the QEW. So please.. not even Cannabis. IF.
xox LOVE a MOM.
Yep! it is officially here! - Lol I am bit late... Oh well. Actually this drawing has been on my desk since before I went on a vacation, I just got around to inking it. I like it! On my Georgia Toons page on FB - strictly toons for those not interested in the other stuff .
Actually I added that page when my original page reached it's limit and people were messaging me. FB is forever changing, I can hardly keep up so I just try to go with the flow.
What I LOVE about December:
Dog Sweaters, Santa = Not the commercializm - but the folklore more.
Hot chocolate, Norm's gingerbread, fresh new snow, snuggling with a good book, early to bed, sweaters, warm boots, more time drawing, Poppy on my lap. Poppy in sweaters, the occasional snowball... the Christmas Display ;-) Nativities. The birth of Jesus Christ. Celebration, more sparkle, christmas lights, snowmen! Canada in winter.
I love Poppies. No kidding. I now have my own little Poppy! & Daisy... I have alwasy loved them. My grandma use to grow them. So short lived if you pick them, best to appreciate on the stem in the ground where they belong. Today of course I think of and miss my dad.
How blessed we had men to defend our country - how sad they had too. It is one of those days for me.
War - what is it good for.
We need more than one day.
I want to share an e mail I got today from an older gentleman, he sometimes reminds me of my dad. It made my heart swell. I hope he does not mind, I don't care - lol - He IS an inspiration! He was to me. It is why I initially took the time to write.
"I want you to know that it was your request to me to write a Guest post that changed my life for the better. But for you I wouldn’t be here today. When you made that request I was having a real hard time with the blog. I was ready to pack it all in and say to hell with it. That was the first realization I had that I was actually being read and making a good impression on someone who counted. Thank you for that.
The blog and Facebook have become my life and believe it or not my depression has eased to where I actually think I’m happy. I sat in a room for ten years and looked at what was happening in the world and I wanted to scream and I had not one friend to talk to. That has changed dramatically and in the past two years I think I have finally managed to vent most of the anger I had bottled up.
I have rediscovered writing and I’m enjoying it and I intend to do a lot more on a lot of other topics that I have opinions on and as you know I have no lack of opinions: most of them negative. LOL .
All I have to do is look at the future and what lies ahead for the world and I see real rough times ahead in the next 50 years and I honestly think the world is doomed. The topics blossom: Life expectancy, old age, retirement, euthanasia, parents, do you want to have kids looking ahead at the climate changes, exploding population, diminishing resources, food shortages and escalating prices coming in the future. I wouldn’t and young people should think about what is ahead for them
I got my ass out of my chair and I started exercising and I feel a real difference in my body. I was completely out of shape with no endurance at all. I couldn’t climb the 15 stairs up to our apartment without my legs shaking and quivering almost uncontrollably at the top , I couldn’t walk a block without pain and I had to stop three times in a block. This morning I lifted 17,100 # in a one hour work out, and still had energy for a fun two hours at the local pub getting signatures for the SensibleBC Referendum.
Georgia: I honestly believe that I owe you the life I have now found and I will be eternally grateful.
When you get a letter like that!? My day was awesome!
Then I signed on to Fb and found another. Talk about being blessed.
Remember those who, if not for them you would not be here today.
For those that are here - Say THANK you!
Tomorrow is the BIG day! Cannabis will be celebrated all over the world! What started as a time for a bunch of guys to meet to smoke some 'marijuana' at 4:20 everyday , has turned into a world wide celebration! On April 20th - 4/20.. People all around the world unite and light up! AWESOME!
At first I thought it was 'neat' but then to see it grow and share! People get together to share, hang out, talk, laugh, educate and stand up for something they believe in!
Medicinal and recreational, the crimes against Humanity regarding this plant are shameful. Every year it grows larger, parades, marches, sit -in's & MORE! Think about it... When else do they do this? Not enough times I'm afraid. We should have a world wide NO GMO day! Or Celebrate the children day and stop abuse!
I was asked to post a cartoon early at 7:00 p.m. my time - because it is April 20 on the other side of the world already! ;D Yes, I will admit in my small mind, I did not think of that at first! How many realize the problems regarding cannabis are all around the world? Some people even die because of it.
I do! I have been educated! I plan on doing what ever I can to help educate others!
If it is as simple as drawing a cartoon that will get some attention, create a curiosity...
I have another new toon to post tomorrow a.m. ;-)
Have a great time all who plan on doing something special for 4/20! Remember to do it 'peacefully' < something asscoiated with pot smokers, and I'm fine with that!
Stand up for what you believe in! Why else are you here?
2013 Is here and I AM Thrilled!! New day, new year -new chance to get it right! I am ready, we have spent the past few days re-organizing my craft room/painting studio/guest room, when I was recovering - all stuff ended up in there - so that when I looked at it I felt anything but crafty! More like closing the door and running. Well it is done now, we also took down the tree and all the decorations! I woke up today to a clean house for January the 1st!
Cartoons waiting to be inked and colored - enough for a couple of weeks easy! I was thinking, I shall call consider last year my wake up call year, with my own health issues & surgery behind me, still on the road to recovery but more determined than ever to get better and be better. For my own sense of balance I will force myself to work on all topics I enjoy and not get consumed by the insanity that comes with Cannabis education. Since so near and dear to my heart - the topic - will be a focus that is for sure! I plan on getting more out of 2013...
More time loving less time dreaming!
More time drawing less time looking at FB!
More time focusing on positive - less time to bitch!
More time playing with the dogs- less time worrying about regular exercise!
Time to draw and then perhaps a bit of painting.
I'd like to start my year off by thanking God for ALL of it.
Every pencil, every piece of paper and every puff.
Perfect day for a winter storm! Norm has the week off - thank goodness he likes to shovel! I have been decorating cookies - since they were so good we decided another batch was in order, the ginger bread now take on a new appearance of zombie cookies ;-)
Tomorrow is tree take down day! LOL- I like to have my house clean and ready to welcome the new year - with all the snowmen and Santa's packed away for another year.
I did get a stuffed Kermit for Christmas - just his face gives me a giggle. I believe I'll try to have a bit of photo fun with him. Get creative with my Kermit.
A sober reminder for this time of the yearI have seen several R.I.D.E. out the past few days and hope people remember to NEVER drink and drive.
Yes! We are still here! It's almost 2013 and I cannot wait! Yesterday - Christmas day - also 6 weeks to the day after my surgery, so I am celebrating!
One, that I'm still here and although what seems like a long time healing, I am now walking better, my twitch still here -is not as painful as it was so I am grateful!
We had a wonderful Christmas, although I was called a bit of a 'scrooge' - brain surgery is no excuse not to go Christmas shopping - this coming from 2 guys who went Christmas shopping the week/day before. ;-)
My son picked me the perfect gift! New pencil crayons- not just pencil crayons- they are like they ultimate drug for me! New colors, I never even knew existed! It is hard for me not to just sit and play!! I did use them for the toon above, new paint brushes and my hubby made me a new side table! No more spills! Complete with treat drawer for late night cartooning munchies. Kermit was also a gift this year! I plan on having a bit of fun with him. I did not need or ask for anything so it was really nice to see the thought they put into it.
I have made up my mind that I will continue to draw what I believe! I will draw what my heart wants me to draw in 2013. As much as I believe in Cannabis as a medicine and will continue to help raise awareness (like the new changes that will hurt so many with the new MMAR program- drawings waiting) .... I see other issues that we all deal with on a grander scale and hope to address some attention to them as well & just have some fun! We all need to step back, breath and take a break from time to time, perhaps have a giggle. Luckily for me I have my girls and guys who are a constant source of love, entertainment and material.
My own personal goal is to be a better person than I was yesterday. Every day.
Time for a few days off to organize, reboot, clean and organize my studio for what promised to be a better, busier year!
Get ready! 2013 is almost here!
How will you make 2013 a better place for all of us?
xox <>< ONE LOVE
The best gifts we already own.
Talent... the list is endless.
We just have to remember to use them from time to time.
Re Gift! The ultimate re-gift when you share your talent with others.
Merry Christmas. xox <><
I decided to see if sex sells... I made this card and will post and see how many shares it gets, see if it is more of a hit than last years leaf in a wreath.
Tis the season.
It does depend on where you live.
It does depend which state you are in.
State of mind.
My tribute trees..
One of my favorite things to draw and think about.
So much to think about now that Health Canada wants to change the rules; toon's on the way.
When I was drawing this I told myself, draw it as a gift for someone - draw it thinking how blessed I am to have this plant in our life.
Draw it to show love and what I think is important.
Peace and the Planet. With each seed planted we grow Peace, Love for each other and HOPE for a better future where people are not treated like criminals. Celebrate a plant put on this earth by our maker to ease ones mind & body.
Make it what it is a plant. Do not ruin lives over a plant.
It is never going away. Too many seeds in the world - just like us humans ;-)
So do the right thing and end needless suffering. Jail & Pain.
Educate others. Stand up for your rights!
Plant the seed of Cannabis education where ever you go!
To You -that can be who every you want it to be!
From Me! That too can be from you!
Give thanks for the healing herb and help end the insanity!
I wish everyone has a wonderful Christmas - what ever it takes to make them happy.
