My nephew Daniel and his wife Amanda are visiting from Seattle, Washington. Their daughter, Talia, is 16 months old. Isn't she adorable? She doesn't know any of us very well so getting her to come to us is difficult. She purses up her lips and burrows her brow when she is NOT happy! It is just precious.

In the quest for better health, many people turn to doctors, self-help books or herbal supplements. But they overlook a powerful weapon that could help them fight illness and depression, speed recovery, slow aging and prolong life: their friends. Exactly why friendship has such a big effect isn’t entirely clear. Friendship is an undervalued resource. The consistent message is that friends make your life better.”I want to thank all my friends who visit my blog, look at my artwork, and put up with all my photographs I share through e-mails. It means a lot to me to have you!
Thunderstorms are in the forecast today. It is dark and gloomy out. It is a good day to work on art!
This is an old potato bin that I refinished and put a mosaic on. The minute I saw it I knew that I wanted to put it in my downstairs powder room. I found it at one of my favorite consignment stores. I sanded it, painted it black and then made a mosaic on the top lid. I think it turned out really nice. I am taking my mosaics into furniture now. Something different to work on. I will try boxes and other things.
My friend Debby and I walk our dogs together almost everyday. Her dog King and Yogi are best buddies and enjoy wrestling and playing. They wear themselves out (which is great) but Zoey prefers to watch from afar. Ha...
Last night we attended the Sugarland Tea Party that was held at Town Square. There were thousands of people there who turned out to protest Obama's tax proposals. It was very organized and went off without any problems.
Now that I am home from my "PLAYCATION" it is time to get serious about weight loss. I did get a jump on it in California. I watched what I put in my mouth and probably jump started my plan. Saw this funny cartoon and had to share it. Wish me luck. I will probably be in a bad mood for days until I get over all the cravings!
This morning my "PLAYCATION" is over and I must return to Texas. I am so sad to be leaving California. I had a great time visiting Phyllis. We had so much fun walking the beaches, talking, and eating delicious food. Of course I probably wore her out but she will miss me when I am gone! Ha...
This doesn't look like it belongs in California. Isn't it a New York taxi cab? We saw it parked at the beach yesterday.
This is a beautiful sunset in Santa Barbara that I took last night. This is what I will miss the most.
