just another happy day ..... or ... almost a potato themed post

all my art is cleared out of my house and still at lola's gallery for my show .... what's a girl to do when she is used to having her mantel filled with art? 
 
i had a tennis lesson this morning ... it was fabulous ... it made me happier than you can imagine .... i am happy to be strong and healthy ... today, for the first time ever, my serve looked fast and strong .... now i just need consistent ..... 

i talked with my boy.beck.artist about a book he is reading .... about setting goals, dealing with obstacles, persevering ..... i don't think he even knew how important the conversation was ... he was just telling me about a boy climbing a mountain ..... 

i did the in between time grocery shop .... i bought bananas, grapes, watermelon, mushrooms, asparagus, cantaloupe, roses, and chocolate covered pretzels at the grocery store .... ok ... i bought bacon bits too... but that doesn't fit with the rest of the list ..... but did make the kids happier to have baked potatoes with dinner .....

i bought roses because little.e.beck.artist asked me to .... "they're just six dollars ... you can afford that for ROSES, right?"  .... i let her pick the color .... 

i uploaded two photos to flickr .... this one... and this ......  

i'm still working on my yellowstone photos .... uploading is not fast ..... my plan is to make a photo book online while it is all fresh in my head ..... we'll see how that goes ... i'm not how long fresh lasts! 

and i didn't get around to any art .... but just wanted you to know that this artist is having a happy summer in between the art moments .....

what are your happy moments?

giggles and joy - oh how that potato head mantel makes me grin ... and the wee heartstrings painting there, too.

sounds like a really terrific summer-so-far.

this weekend has been full of happy moments. BIL and old friend were down for the weekend, so lot's of good grilling, games and laughter. started re-reading a series I hadn't read in at least 6 years (and it's as much a pleasure as the first time around) ... made some RockStar Cork Fairy's & a winged Mermaid that makes me grin a cheesy grin ... and ... and ... and ... life is good. :)

oh....oh.....oh!!! I know you would've like to share our happy moment today!!! We went to Gugelhopf Bakery and got cream puffs, chocolate croisants, and......pretzel knots---which I know you LOVED once when I got you one. :) Just #1, #2 and #4....#3 is at camp. Next time you come visit, we'll take YOU there, E! Love, Roberta :)

see you there! said...

Your mantel looks pretty darned happy to me.

Happy is checking out of the hotel and going home today. Cleaning people are coming to wipe down all the walls, etc. and then the strapping grandsons that are going to help move our furniture back in.

It will be a long day but at the end of it I'll be sleeping in my own bed.

I adore the mantle! =) Very happy! =) Happy for me, today, was cuddling my kitties, chatting with the boys, giggling over the phone with hubby - thinking of going on our vacation in 2 days...and eating a sweet, ripe cantaloupe. Mmmmmmm!
