Day 60 (1521)

So much negative, angry energy around these day oneline and in real-life. Ugh. Fight so hard to keep it at arms length because it is so caustic and toxic, especially when you have a body that's sensitive to other peoples' energy (positive and negative).a
If you see me slipping into negativety/and /or angry type person, please let me know peeps. Thanks! And as always,
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 58 (1519)

What a gorgeous day! 59° in February! Loving it despite not loving another puzzle piece that isn't falling into place.  Do I just cram it into place or still wait (patiently) for it.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 58

A trace of snow after ONE of the nicest days in February I've ever experienced! 59°! Love, love, love!
Hug the one you're with!

Day 55 (1516)

Another successful student exchange, thanks to a great assistant and great teachers! There is going to be over 200 very tired first, second and third graders tonight not to mention the teachers. Now all I have to do is finished midterms by tomorrow and prep some
bird houses for students to paint for an upcoming fundraiser. Yea! Peace and fabulousness.

Day 48 (1509)

Woke up under one of those clouds that just didn't seem to go away. The more i avoided it or tried to change it, the more it grew.  Thanks in part to outside sources.
But there were rayd of sunshine, a better turnout for day 2 of artclub, a friends' baby news, seeing my art piece is still on display on The Jason Show after they rearranged things and a random wave across the produce aisle from a 1 year old.
Today's piece is inspired by the kindergartners. We were brainstorming things that are yellow and 2 kids said snowman and underwear. O kindergartners.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 47 (1508)

Porta! Terrible Tuesdays continue to reign! My students today were either really apathetic and listless or they were way out there and not the best listeners. I really hope tomorrow will be more leveled out. Also day two of art club is tomorrow. Hoping for more turnout and not having teachers pull them out either. Very different starts compared to last year. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 45 (1506)

Decided to play with some different mediums and elements.  Odd but fun. Need a bigger freezer and a better phone camera.  Or a computer to go with the camera shots I took.
Getting really good at blocking stuff out and just being in the creative moment.
Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends and followers, and if your lucky to have a special someone in your life, embrace it and them.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 43 (1504)

  Friday Friday couldn't have come any quicker. After a hyped up week with Valentines party stuff, and conferences, the weekend needed to get here, and it couldn't come at a better time. I swear teaching is like working in a petri dish. So much crud going around! Today I felt like my body was fighting several different things off and knock on wood, it's being successful. I think my effort to get more rest and exercise is paying off. Fingers crossed.
Have a great weekend!
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 42 (1503)

One of those emotional gutpunching days, found around every corner, which started in the wee hours of the morning. Oh well. Happy day. Lol. Will be glad to sleep this one to an end.
Tomorrow's Friday!  :)
Being an elementary art teacher can really put a Disney like spin on my pieces. Thus I give you today's piece. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 41 (1502)

My dragon kite is back up in the classroom! It was so fun telling kindergarteners about it and how it's always looking for its next meal : those little kids that make bad choices. Their giggles and sideways glances were priceless. And yes they know I'm teasing.
As much as I wanted to, took a break from the gym this morning and ended up with random muscle ached off and on all day. ???
Today's piece in case you can't quite make it out, is a giraffe that just swallowed a heart whole. A bit odd, but considering how twisted my creatures can be this time of year, I think I'm being quite tame.  Eerily, I know that side is lurking but I'm not sure where my mind is hiding it. Sorry Rich.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 38 (1499)

Will be so glad when all the "Big Game" stuff is over.  From TV, radio, social networks, and even church, it's all too much.  Blech! Though truth be told Gaga was AMAZING! and the commercials have above average. But still...
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 36 (1497)

Happy Friday! So glad it's the weekend. Last night had one of the most intense dreams, that was a dream inside of a dream. Just bizarre. Sorry to mention dreams so much, but I'm one of those people that the minute I start to fall asleep I slip into a dream state. It could be when I'm trying to take a 3 minute nap or whenever, all night, like I'm plugged in to a streaming service. Sometimes they're monotonous, sometimes they're epic and sometimes like last night they hit too close to home at the core of things. The question pondered a bit in yesterday's post were made vividly clear last night. I'm just grateful I had planned to get up to go to the gym this morning otherwise it would have been a day of bummerness. Also dreams like last night leave you feeling like you're still partially in the dream even though your moving about your day.
Peace and fabulousness.
Enjoy your weekend!

Day 35 (1496)

Except when teaching, felt really mentally pulled out of the world today. Not sure why, but maybe I am sure why. Who knows !?! Lol. After day off due to shoveling, it was nice to get up and go to the gym again this morning. That was a brain boost.
Today's piece did not originally start this way but once I pulled the paper, out this is what came to mind.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 34 (1495)

Despite the poor road conditions this and almost being late clearing the alley plow piles, it was an overall pretty decent day. Did have several students missing, but the classes were fun, the first art club meeting, which i almost forgot went well and intercom bingo! It all makes for a fun day. Got home helped some people out and then crashed physically and mentally.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 33 (1494)

Hello snow! Once it started, it really started, as did the energy of the student's energy level! Whew!
Forgot to mention yesterday, the second graders because I'm an art teacher i don't know how to read. Lol.  So bizarrely funny!
Peace and fabulousness.
