Let's See....

Hum....You know I just don't know what to blog about today.
Woke at 4:20 (but went to bed at 9..) "W" is peacefully sleeping.
I should be reading an inspirational book, but not in the mood.
Have I ever mentioned that I am a Law and Order fanatic?
Well I am.  I could seriously watch it all day long.
But, it has to be Criminal Intent or Special Victims Unit.
I'm in love with the smart guy.

Don't know his name but I love him.
I have to admit though I wish he would get that mole removed from his forehead.
I really, really love smart people for some reason.  Must be why I married "W".  
Anyway, what else should I write about?
Ok, let's talk about inspiration.
I get inspired by so many things!
Let's use some examples.....The painting I sent "A" the other day?  Well, I thought "what would my friend Elizabeth do?  She would give her the painting and never think twice about it.
So that's what I did.  She is a huge inspiration in my life.
I'm hugely inspired by a blog I read (and advertise on)
She's goin through a tough time and is ALWAYS upbeat!
I really admire people like that.
I don't like down in the dumps people.  I mean I LOVE to give advice and all.  Actually I REALLY love to give advice.  Probably too much.  I want to fix things.
Can you please tell me where my brain is going this morning?  Cause I really can't figure it out.
All I know is I've got 4 hours before I have to go play tennis.  I need to clean up the condo and fold a butt load of clothes for a HUGE weekend coming up but you know what? I don't want to. So thinking a maid might be in my future today sometime.  They're hangin around the condo all the time and they do a great job!
So, back to inspiration.
Where do I get my inspiration for my art?
Whew, that's a tough one.
Well. the lake is one place because I look at it every day.  I am inspired by a whole slew of artist, one being Steve Penley. What an amazing artist he is!  He has really inspired me to use broad strokes and be loose.
But....I have to use broad strokes because unfortunately uncontrollable shaking runs in my family and I was the unfortunate one to get the gene.  Hence my sloppy fast painting.
My husband inspires me to better myself, and so do my children.
My dad was a HUGE influence on my life, constantly telling me I could do ANYTHING I set my mind  to. (sorry daddy, I know that is a grammatical error)
My mom inspired me greatly by her favorite quote "CAN'T NEVER COULD".  Ohhhhhh how true that statement is.
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day and have enjoyed my jabber fest over my 3rd cup a joe this mornin!
It's gonna be a great day.
oh, almost forgot.....Happy dance!!!
Bought a pair of jeans yesterday cause Callen said "MOM, if you wear those jeans anymore I am seriously going to cut them into pieces".
So, (first of all, I don't try on clothes in store) (stupid stamp on forehead).  I just buy them, try them on at home and take them back if they don't fit.  I was saying "please oh please let these fit" "I don't want to go back to bed and crawl up in a safety net and cry.
They were too big.....yipppppppppeeeeee!!!
I am SOOOO excited!!!!
Have a great day y'all and find something that inspires you today!!!!
