January 16, 2015


Last night it was such a joy to get out to the opening night of Juli Lyons' photography exhibit. She's such a delight and a wonderful talent - and you'll both get to know here in the Beta!


I can't believe it...I finally finished Burn Notice! 7 seasons, 1 made-for-TV movie, with lots of explosions, tough situations, creative solutions and of course...yogurt. I really enjoyed the series, and am glad I finally just bought it all to enjoy it at my own pace...and then of course powered through it. I was looking back and I actually started watching it 2 years ago almost to this day. What are the chances? That's when I snagged this shot from the first seasons, and I always thought it was a great character shot as it captures all three of Michael, Sam and Fiona in one go. Too bad it's a big fuzzy, but I still think the moment reads.


I totally was a spazz and fell while I was out for a walk and sprained my ankle. I had to walk, very slowly, 10 blocks home and it is pretty swollen. As a result, I had an art day yesterday again, thanks to Lisa Congdon. But then the creative energy was gone. I did not like having to be in my crafts room because I had to stay off my ankle. It made it less fun. So I had a long nap instead.

Wow, Shannon, (Please forgive this) you burned through that!!! hahahaha. I couldn't resist.

I'm so glad you treated yourself to the experience. I know how much you've enjoyed it. And that's a totally great shot! It really reads!

Oh, Suzie, I'm so sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope it heals up well and quickly and that you get some rest.

I love your picture! What a cool way to combine collage and drawing. Your flowers are wild!

What a joyous photo of Juli, Jamie! Oh my alliteration! It's awesome that you got out to exhibit! What a treat :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your ankle Suzie, but glad to hear you tended to it and let it rest. Art is a great activity for days when have you stay off your feet, and I love your drawing - it's so awesome you are enjoying Lisa's class!

LOL that's a good groaner Jamie! Burning through Burn Notice! I sure did....7 seasons in less than 2 months! Wow!
