cinco de mayo, 56, 57

if you are taking notes on my blog, because one day, there will be a test .... you need to know this .... i adore ADORE adore mexican food ... my fave .... quesadillas, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, queso, red rice, salsa, guacamole (walk a mole, eh?), margaritas, corona, cancun, white cheese, fresh tortillas, yummin-uh, yummin-uh, yummin-uh .... ok ... that's a weird thing .... i SAY yummin-uh all the time ... but i'm sure i've never written it ... but .... i digress ... i love mexican food and what better way to adore mexican food than to celebrate cinco de mayo ... and ... actually, i went to a tres de mayo party ..... yummin-uh .... and all this is just to be au courant (that's french) and wish you a happy cinco de mayo (not french)..... 

and since we are on blog studies and test taking...anyone out there remember my college major? my minors? my second languge? my favorite color? my favorite shoes? wild guesses allowed .....

all this because i have been tagged by kelly at the happy shack .... to tell you random tidbits about myself ..... i get tagged fairly frequently and usually (eep!) ignore the tag .....  but .... mr.e.beck.artist is out o' town .... and my evening is stretching out in front of me .... plenty of time for a long blog .... jump ahead if you want to get the the art section of this wayward art blog....
so .... 
  • 1. Link back to the person that tagged you.
  • 2. Post these rules on your blog.
  • 3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
  • 4. Tag six people at the end of your entry.

  • so....
    1... i have three brothers, no sisters... grew up pretty tom boyish, wearing any handmedowns from them i could .... mostly, i think this is what made me low maintenance... not so girly or fussy about clothes and hair and such .... 

    2... my mom had a sewing machine and a whole sewing room .... i adored it ... i think i mostly sewed with her during the summers (she was a teacher) .... i sewed a sleeping bag for every doll one summer ....another summer i sewed myself and each brother quivers for our arrows ..... the arrows were really palm fronds and the bows were home made ... but it was a cool sewing activity ......

    3.... i took piano for one year and HATED it ... but apparently learned enough that i'm now teaching youngest.beck.artist to play ..... i'm going to get her real lessons in the fall .... i'm not musical at all ... but all my kids seem to be ... that's a great thing, huh? 

    4... i'm happiest in sneakers ..... but love flipflops and sandals .... i usually have my toes polished with blue .... when i want to dress up i make them blue and glittery .... (note to self: need new glitter polish before my gallery show next week)

    5... i have three kids and wanted another ... we ended up getting a dog to fill that new baby need ... and my dog is the most fabulous four legged thing i've ever known .... i truly didn't know you could possibly love a pet as much as i love this one ..... (can i complain? i walked for about two miles this morning ... and ended up carrying her for about 1.9 miles.... what's up with that .... she's nearly as stubborn as i am... she didn't want to walk ... and i wasn't about to turn back)

    6... i'm stubborn(a taurus, may birthday) .... a middle child(well adjusted, diplomatic, peace maker, pacifist)... with some only child qualities (achievement oriented, spoiled ...eep! ) since i'm the only girl ....  and .... i'm bossy too .... just ask any of my brothers ... or mr.e.beck.artist .... or my kids .... or the dog .... yoinks ...none of that sounds too great ... but really, i'm nice ..... 

    and ... thanks to darla's suggestion, this, number 56 for the year, is named saturday house ....18 inches square.....

    so ..... i'm supposed to tag six more people to do six random tra la las about themselves ... 
    i tag kelly ... which means you have to do six MORE .... 
    and i tag darla, jeannie, yogurt, lynn, and  donna
    go to it girlfriends! 

    come back tomorrow to see my three foot piece i spent today working on .....

    art, orange, art, orange, history, art, orange, french, art, ....

    any of these words should work for the answers...

    Art history
    education minor?? sounds far fetched

    Mexican food is the best there is. I love, love, love it, too. I don't know if I have just one favorite. I love it all.
    I do belive you have a degree in Art History but he rest escapes me. Could we have multiple choice questions next time?
    I truly adore your artwork!

    wait a minute, here! a tag back?! what the heck is that!?! is that allowed?!?!? okay, i'll consider this a challenge.... :-) love the saturday and sunday paintings btw.

    see you there! said...

    Love the Sat/Sun paintings. I'll have to think about that tag stuff. I mean, if I tell all where's the mystery???

    I've been in the mts the past few days and am enjoying some catch up time here now.
