I have been remiss

You know how sometimes you cant seem to catch up with yourself let alone anything else. Well life has been like that. I realized this morning I have been greatly neglecting to add to my blog. Well I choose to change that for at least this morning. I realized I never shared with you our trip to Mylestone, ( The day was absolutely beautiful for the annual fundraiser festival for Mylestone. They are an Equine rescue farm in Phillipsburg NJ. I never knew about it until Jamie told me. It is sad but if you look at their website they have the stories of each of the horses that they house there and the lifestyle they lived until someone reached out a hand to save them. I have a few pictures I want to paint from that day and donate to them so they may raise funds for the beauties that live there. Check them out.

NY Renaissance fair

Saturday we spent the day at the NY Renaissance fair. We had a great day there. It was rather expensive, but a day filled with pageants and jousts. The crew dressed and played their parts with the old English mannerisms and wording. It was funny watching the one juggler fool around with Zack and Dylan got his face painted with a spider and a dragon on his arm. We will probably go again next year.

laughed when I read this. Needed to share


The real reason that we can't have the Ten
Commandments posted in a courthouse or Congress is this --
you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou
Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not
Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and
politicians .... it creates a hostile work environment.

Julia Child Biography -

Julia Child Biography -

Shared via AddThis
Ok so not a photo taken by me, but I went to see the movie Julie and Julia. It was a really good movie. One of the best I have seen in a while. Now I don't think I will by the book which I was planning to as it has a lot of curse words according to the author. There was only 1 that I detected in the movie. I'm not sure why one needs to put it in films. I don't get the whole gotta curse for the sake of doing it as the English language is colorful enough, I would think you could come up with a word to express yourself. But the movie was delightful in its own rights. If you get the chance to see it, do it is worth it. Unfortunately I couldn't post the movie trailer, but you can see it if you search for it.

Presenting the NJ art group

Its been a while. Five of us have joined together and under Jim's co-ordination have formed the beginnings of the NJ art group. Gathered together in Flemington were Jim, Celeste and I on a Thursday night in the park in town. 2 of the members are missing. We have only been at it for a few weeks so hopefully it will grow. It is surprising that people don't know what plein air painting is. Tonight we were in Clinton. The people strolling by with their ice cream and iced coffee, were pleased to see painters out on the street. I will keep you updated as things progress.
