Some of my Past Days

Here is a photo of when I worked at St. Benedict's Monestary. This is my view on the way to work. It was very much like working in a Medieval Castle. Very, very interesting. The best place I have ever worked in my life. I had to quit because my Mother became terminally ill with cancer and I had to take her to chemo everyday for two years. The Monks were so helpful to me, and understanding. I smiled and laughed everyday working for the Monks.
I had many, many wonderful experiences here. That is why I belong to the Benedictine Order.

This is an overview of the Church that is connected to the Monestary.
This is a full view from the front. The back of the Monestary faces the lake.

Another Day in My Life!

Taught class this morning had a great time. Had lunch, went to bank, and took dogs for walkies. Beautiful day here! :) Wishing all of you were here! I will be definitely working on my new blog this weekend...lots of pics and things. To start here is our granddaughter. Way, way, talented young woman....we adore here. She has been a heavy gamer all her life and is a most talented seamstress. She creates Anime costumes, and sells them all over the World. She is real Artsy, deep, and adores animals. We are so blessed to have such a great granddaughter. If you are interested in seeing her Art click on the link...Oh her costumes were featured on CNN, when they had an Anime gathering. SHE IS SO COOL! :) Here is the link.....

In the Beginning!

Well let's start at the beginning. Here is a photo of me as a baby. Yes, I am the chubby one sitting on the chair between my Cousin Lydia left, and my older sister Kathleen, right. Notice the monstrous gobs of hair on my head. lol lol lol.
This is my first blog, so I am sure it will take me awhile to find out just what people find interesting on my blog.
I see my whole world in pictures in my mind all the time. In all honesty I wish I were a stand up comic. I have always said, if you don't have a good sense of humor, than stay away from humanity! lol lol lol

Here are two portraits I did, one of me on the left, and my husband George on the right. I love to draw and love to create. It is what I have a passion to do, and what I do best! I will be posting photos a lot, remember I love to see the world in pictures! lol lol lol Oh by the way the portraits were when we in our 20's. And "yes" George looks at me like that all the time! lol lol lol That is his "Now what are you up to" look. One never knows with me. Here is my self analysis of myself, "I am extremely sesative, love beautiful things in life, love people with beautiful souls, and adore animals because of their purity.
I will sign off for today May 26, 2010....A Day in my Life!
