Art I Love – “Just Another Sunny Day”

Gingerbread Disaster (Potentially)

17 Dec

I’m currently trying my hand at the good old-fashioned gingerbread house!  I haven’t  made one of these in years, so I thought I would reward my end-of-the-school-year efforts with the chance to express my creative side for a bit. Of course, I’m not attempting to build it from scratch–that’s a BIG undertaking for a beginning Gingerbread-House-builder 🙂  Instead I grabbed a kit at Sam’s, and I’ve been playing around with it all night.  

I’m happy to report that after a couple of hours, an entire tube of icing, four “OH NO’S!!,” and finally a cry for extra holding hands from my mom, my house has four standing walls and a roof. Admittedly, one wall is pushed in and I had to overlap the roof edges a bit, but its on!  Woohoo!  After one final catastrophe of the whole thing collapsing inward, I’ve decided to give it the night to cement.  It’s currently being held up with chili and icing cans 🙂

 

Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

I have been horribly amiss, and I must officially apologize to all of my readers. I promised you an update some time ago on my visit to Door County Wisconsin and I didn’t update.  I now must run away and hide in shame . . . (disappears with hanging head) Okay, I’m back! with the long ago promised post about all the awesome things I got to experience at Door County.  I already hit on some of this before in my I’ve arrived post on the trip up there, but for clarity’s sake I’ll touch on some of it again.   The trip up there was actually kind of my idea since my family was caving into my desire to check out the Great Lakes. Despite living in the midwest area for most of my life, I’d never had the chance to check out the Great Lakes and it was on Continue reading

Happy Father’s Day!

16 Jun

I have been blessed over the last few weeks to see lots of examples of really great dads. So here, in honor of all those great men out there, are some of the pictures I’ve collected. ❤

Happy Father’s Day!

To pull the metal splinter from my palm
my father recited a story in a low voice.
I watched his lovely face and not the blade.
Before the story ended, he’d removed
the iron sliver I thought I’d die from.
I can’t remember the tale,
but hear his voice still, a well
of dark water, a prayer.
And I recall his hands,
two measures of tenderness
he laid against my face
