Vacation and First Video (Just Praticing)


If you are seeing this blog that means I have figured out how to get my pictures from my camera onto this laptop.
 
 
 
Painting

 
Doodling

 
More Doodling 
 
 
 
I knew when these kids came the fun was going to begin!
 
 
 
Xylie

 
 
Gracey and Maddie
 
 
The Beach!!!!!!

 
 
Blue Eyes.
 

 
 
Kye and Maeve came later in the week.


 
A present left on my door.
Thank you Gracey and Xylie!!!

 
Walking at the Park
 
Sitting with my Sister In Law.  Remembering.
 

 
More Doodling

 
Sunsets on the Bay.
(no two alike)

 
Super Moon on the Beach.


Diamonds on the Sea.
 
 
Reading a really great book
 
 
 
My Sister Heidi made us some flags to hang to make it festive!
 
 

What a great vacation I have been having. 
 
 

So what I started to do since all my guest left.
(not for long Nelly and her men will be here this week, I see some fishing in my future)
 
I am just taping myself to get use to being on camera.
Oh how crazy that was.  I am a bit goofy.
But I WILL get better.
And next time I WILL doll myself up a bit.
Oh well you have to start somewhere.




 
Also I was contacted by Hallmark this week about using some of my images.
I won't hold my breath but it will be what it will be.
I am just glad they are still thinking of me.
We will see.
 
Well everyone have a great week.
 
I will leave you with this song and quote.
 
I have no other reason to pick this song but that it reminds me of my Sisters and my daughter.
One fun night playing this and getting crazy driving to Harrisburg and "loosing my oxygen". Rocking the Mini Van!
 
And it is a Fun Song!!
 

 
 
Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive.

Beautiful photos. It looks like a wonderful vacation! It's fun seeing/hearing you on the video! I hope Hallmark uses some of your work -- it would look great on cards, etc...

Oh Heather what a great video. You made me laugh. You will definitely be in my living room each week. I am also 56 and I have always done the same thing. Always thinking what age I am going to be next birthday. Glad I'm not the only one that does that. I also loved listening to the lovely sound of the ocean.(My most favourite sound in the world) Have a great vacation.

Heather, I so much appreciate your visiting my blog while you are vacationing. Your photos look like it is a wonderful time. You had so many wonderful bits of art on your blog this week, each so gorgeous. Congratulations on being able to go from camera to laptop!

Heather, your video cracked me up, big time. I am also 4 mos shy of being 57 and I also keep saying I am 57. Why do we do that. Your kids pics are wonderful and given where you are on vacation, how could you not be having a wonderful time. I am enjoying perusing your blog. I love the art on your header on the upper left side.

Love the art (as always!) and the VIDEO! You are a brave woman. Hearing your voice made me feel like I knew you a bit better. :-) Great job for your 1st video. I'd be a fucking mess, i'm sure. xx
