Life... Through Rose Colored Glasses

For years I have been accused of viewing life through rose colored glasses. I prefer to think of it as looking for the bright side, finding happiness wherever I can. Some things you have no control over. You have to roll with the punches and just get through it. I don't like feeling stressed. I deal with the things I can, and just shrug my shoulders at the rest. Life is too damn short to worry about what she said, hold a grudge, how will I..., what if.....! 

Right now Drew and I are unemployed. I know for certain that opportunities will open up for us if we just keep our eyes open for them. In the meantime we have hours together doing whatever we want. I have plenty of time to paint and play with new ideas. I get to spend more time with my parents. I have had more chats with my Mom over a cup of coffee than I ever got to before. I get to shuttle my Dad to Dr. appointments and while he is there, quickly run to Hobby Lobby to drool over art supplies and maybe find something on sale. Yes, I am embracing this time with a smile. It'll end soon enough and I'll be back to working somewhere and not have the time to play like I do now.

Until then I am going to don my rose colored glasses and paint like it is my job. Explore new techniques and experiment with different ideas. Snuggle with Drew on the couch and watch some mindless t.v. and SMILE while I am doing it!

Have a Happy Easter peeps :-)

Spring Break Fun

Hi ya all. It has been ages since I have blogged. I am patiently waiting for my jeans to dry so I can go pick up Ms. Scarlet. Grampy & Grammy are taking her to see Hop :-) Then out for a delightful meal at McDonald's. After that we are going to come home and get our Art On!

We'll run to Big Lot's to pick up two canvases and then Grammy Sue is going to teach Scarlet the joy of creating a fun background with some well placed Blooms. Can't wait to don our painting smocks and get a little messy. Scarlet gets to use 'big girl" paints and brushed tonight! I'll post pics of our artwork tomorrow.

Until then.... Peace Out!
