Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Happy St.Patrick's Day!  I have always loved this day.  Even before my son Nathan was born on March 17th ten years ago I thought it was the greatest day.  Now I have two reasons to celebrate - St. Patrick's Day and my son's birthday.  Happy 10th Birthday Nathan!  You really are Nate the Great!!!  Check out the shirt Sasa made him for this special occasion!

Do you see what I see?

Two weeks ago it snowed in the middle of the night.  When morning came everything looked like it had white frosting on it.  I had to be somewhere at 9 a.m. that morning and I felt like I was driving through a winter wonderland.  When I came to a stop sign a couple of miles from my house,  this broken down beaten up fence took my breath away.  Click on the picture above.  What normally looks like a fence that needs replacing looked like an abstract painting to me.  I'm not sure if it was the colors, contrast or the blanket of snow on everything, but it was a beautiful sight.  I had my camera with me, so I snapped a picture vowing to paint an abstract painting showing the colors and contrast of a worn out fence and a fresh coat of snow.

Favorite things

While I do love apples, its the star bowl of pocket peace rocks from my twin Sister that fills my heart with joy!  She hand painted the peace sign on small smooth rocks for me to randomly give to company to spread peace.  I love the look of delight on their faces as they pick their favorite one.  I've given out at least a half dozen so far and the bowl is still full!
As if her pocket peace rocks alone isn't the coolest thing on earth.....she also paints peace rocks on larger stones and spreads them throughout the world!  When she travels she brings a bag of peace rocks to place in random spots for people to find.  The best part is that she numbers each one and puts her peace blog on the back so the lucky people can say where they found one of her very special rocks!    Check out her blog-   Even if you do not find one of her very special rocks....she has peace rock give aways and peace inspiring messages for all!
