Bigger Fish to Fry

Art Challenge, water color, stress reliever
The Bird and the Fish

Hey, the link is still open!

I am virtually running to submit my artwork here (if you can call it artwork) before the door closes. It is the third of the month and I am linking my first entry.

I am sort of cheating here as these are my experimental watercolor pencil I did about a couple of months ago. The picture taking was just done today, though, and the editing and stuff.

The coloring book is from Color Me Your Way, Animals A-Z. No, it's not from the kid's section. It is an adult coloring book. OK, it says, for ages 8 to adult. I use it from time to time as a stress reliever. 

I am no artist and am not fishing for compliments here. And although I have bigger fish to fry, this kind of activity virtually puts money on my piggy bank reserve that I can withdraw from in times of stress.

It has been a while since I depleted my reserves. Last month and this month, I am doing a few things to reenergize to rebuild my resiliency. If I can't get escape from the challenges the follow me, I can at least prepare myself for them.

So, this is me, the green angel fish with my friends and family--facing them, being with them, and trying to stay pretty, haha. And as if I don't have enough challenges in my life, here I am with this artistic group joining the Art Challenge this month of June. Unlike other challenges around me, though, this is a fun one. Ivy, did I just answer the question/topic of the first day, who are you?

Resistance

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
