The “Yes Mess” by Lemon Shark

Such a gentle reminder for an ailment so many of us have.  Enjoy her post:

When you say yes to every request, you’re going to have a real problem. Because, sooner or later, you’re going to ask yourself, “How did I get into this mess?” You, sweet stuff. You are how you got into this mess. No reason to play the blame game. Okay, lets play. Tag. You’re […]

March Ocean

Our March visit to Lincoln City, Oregon, was a strange mix of wonderful and not so good.  The weather was warmer and it’s always great to see the sun peek behind the clouds at the moment it sets.  The reflection of sky and ocean makes for a visual feast.

Speaking of feast, my husband and I agree that the best pizza in the area is called Tie-Dye Pie Pizzeria (formerly known as Humble Pie).  It’s a tiny place on Highway 101 that does a brisk take out business.  One of our meals is always a trip to this place.  This makes for a very happy husband.

The first night we were there, after the pizza was eaten, I started feeling a stabbing pain in my back, left side.  It got worse as the night went on.  A little past midnight I announced that I needed to go to the emergency room.  My husband flew into action as if I had just said, “My water broke.”  The Lincoln City emergency room was very nice and we walked out at 3:00 AM with medicine and knowing the reason.  (My kidney was not happy.)

With each coast visit, there is something old and something new.  The new was the emergency room.  Hopefully we will not repeat this.  The old was spotting a seal, surfers, and plenty of dog owners having a blast with their dogs.

My husband loves to feed the birds, and I caught this picture of him.  The five birds grew to about two dozen, all calling out for their share.  There must be some kind of “food” call because it didn’t take long for the seagulls to swoop in.

We are now half way through our adventure of spending three days at the coast each month for an entire year.  More fun to come…

Lunaria – Spring Show

Jane Castelan Buccola and Robert Fox collaborated for Lunaria’s Spring Show.  Buccola, with her bold pastels, oils, and acrylic flowers looked lovely with Fox’s glass flowers.

“First Friday’s” at the Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, Oregon USA, was a big success as you can see from the smiles on the two artists featured.  Other artists were there and the entire gallery was decked out with samples of each artist’s work.

I was amazed by how beautiful the show was laid out with paintings and flowers sharing colors.

Love the driftwood used to show off a grouping of the flowers.  I was able to bring my favorite home, which is now hanging on our wall.

(Full disclosure, my husband is the glass artist. )
