I always see self portrait challenges. I would like to ask everyone to do a self portrait this week in your kitchen. Leave me a comment if you would like to participate. I would like to do one a month, anyone interested? I will have a theme every month.
Today I went and saw John. We played checkers. He said he did not remember exactly how to play (lie, big lie) Three games later, after winning every single game. Him smiling ear to ear like he had just won the lottery. Me shaking my head at his blatant lie. It was fun, he did really good in therapy, and really great news, his bedsore is getting better!! He looked so good today. My Dad came with me and we ate lunch at Carl's Deli. Oh Man did they have great corned beef sandwiches. We brought John back one for his lunch, he loved it. I was thinking all day about an altered book I want to start. I have some really good ideas, I am starting my book tomorrow. Wish me luck, it will be my first one. I'll show you a few pages as I get them done. Thanks to everyone who has responded to the request for silent auction items. I will never forget you. Maybe someday I can help you. And thanks to everyone who has put my link on their site. I have received so much kindness from people on my blog that it helps me face my days. Thank you. xoxo Nita
If you have time listen to the top song, Big Country, this song has always made me feel such a wide range of emotions. It motivates me. I just love it. And there is a great song by the Motels at the bottom, Only the Lonely. And a song by Annie Lenox, love her, called No More I love You's, One of my favorites.
For everyone who participates in the monthly self portraits, there will be a prize for the most original portrait. Leave a comment and I will put your link on a new post for everyone to see your photo. xoxo Nita
