MORE PHOTOGRAPHY ADVENTURES COMING!

Soon we'll be doing some traveling around Florida hoping to find some great landscapes, wildlife and maybe, just maybe, some fall colors.

We will also be heading to the mountains of North Carolina to get some of that wonderful fall foliage color and hoping to find more awesome waterfalls!

Stayed tuned for more news!  Celebrate life safely!!

My Very Own Numbers Book is now availalbe!

Well, it is done and now available on Amazon for kindle or in soft cover.  This book will be great for pre-schoolers whose first language is not English...or for English speaking pre-schoolers that reside in spanish speaking countries!  Just follow the link for the book on Amazon

I would love for those who purchase one of my books to leave a review on Amazon.  Don't forget My Alphabet Garden Tour is also available for pre-schoolers in both kindle and soft cover!

NEW KIDS EDUCATIONAL BOOK IS ALMOST READY!

I have been working on the illustrations for my kids bilingual number book...all the illustrations and pages are done and now I'm struggling with the cover...hope to have this done and published soon!

SEEMS TO ADDRESS OUR PRESENT SITUATION

"Sometimes, the problems you must face are more than you wish to cope with, and tomorrow doesn’t seem to offer any solutions.The roads any of us choose to follow are never free of bumps or curves, but eventually the turns lead to a smoother path ahead."

Life has sure been dishing out some challenges lately. My prayer for all of you is that you stay healthy and strong.  Please take great precautions for your own health and the health of others.  I'm not interested in what the media says, what the government says...just follow your heart....in my mind that means, social distance, wearing a mask when out in public and WASH WASH WASH your hands!  I truly don't want to see one single more person get infected with this virus!

The arts have a way of healing...so make music and make art...and that comes in many forms...you can write, sing, listen, view, paint, draw, scribble, photograph...or even buy art that touches your soul...together we will survive this crisis if we work together to protect each other....

Just my point of view!

 

Just one more for today!

"Always do the best you can, and everything else will take care of itself. Focus your energies on doing what you can rather than worrying about what you can't."

Happy and Blessed Sunday to you!

"If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you that matters. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit."

I guess we had a unique Independence Day celebration yesterday due to the COVID-19 virus.  Our neighborhood was much quieter than on July 4 last year.  How was your day?

I did get a bit of work done on graphics for my 2nd kids book yesterday.  Painting little ducklings!  I am sure hoping to have this book done and published soon.  I seem to be taking forever to get it done, but that is probably because I'm doing my own graphics...a little out of my comfort zone as far as drawing and painting goes.  BUT - it's always good to try something new, right?

So why don't you share what you have been doing to stay busy and constructive?

I have been neglecting sharing the insights that I received from a friend...so...

Here are a few new ones!

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."

"The best efforts from others does not come from lighting a fire beneath them, but by building a fire within."

"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."

Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

"Since changes are going on anyway, the great thing is to learn enough about them so that we will be able to lay hold of them and turn them in the direction of our desires. Conditions and events are neither to be fled from nor passively acquiesced in; they are to be utilized and directed."

STILL STAYING HOME...STAYING SAFE!

"It is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and the good, and dwell as little as possible on the evil and the false."

Took some flower macros in the yard today.  Thinking I'll do a little watercolor painting and then some photo editing!

HOW YOU DOIN'?

SO...REALLY, HOW ARE YOU DOING?  ARE YOU ALL FOLLOWING THE RULES FOR THE DREADED VIRUS? I SURELY HOPE SO...WE DON'T NEED TO LOSE A SINGLE ONE OF YOU.

MY HOUSE IS FOLLOWING THE RULES, SO WE ARE GETTING LOTS DONE. I'M WORKING ON MY NEXT KIDS BOOK.  SLOWLY CREATING ART TO GO WITH IT.  IT WILL BE LAUNCHED AS A KINDLE E-BOOK FIRST, THEN IN A SOFT COVER. 

I AM HOPING MY FOLLOWERS ARE SHARING MY WORK BECAUSE I COULD SURE USE MORE SALES.  NOT MUCH PHOTOGRAPHY IS HAPPENING BECAUSE I'M STUCK AT HOME.  I MAY HAVE TO START POSING COAL AND HOLLY FOR FUNNY DOG PORTRAITS.  IF YOU KNOW OUR COAL, THAT COULD BE SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS!!

MEANTIME FOLKS, PLEASE DON'T HOARD STUFF, STAY HOME, WASH YOUR HANDS, HELP YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS IF YOU CAN.  JUST PLEASE STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!
