So this painting being finished is actually a miracle...
now I know it may not look like it,
but believe me this is right up there
with all sorts of family miracles
like the daughter unpacking the dishwasher
without a reminder
Sinus Man not snoring
or me smiling and speaking coherently at 5am....
My day started nice and early,
despite it being the last week of holidays and by rights
this should mean lazy sleep ins,
and even given that I was actually relatively cheery...
made my way down to the kitchen
and was waylaid by the adorable sight of Mushu spreadeagled on the lounge
just waiting for his tummy to be rubbed...
now maybe I was moving in stealth mode and gave him a fright
or maybe he was just being a dog
but no sooner had I placed my hand on his adorable little tummy
when he did what may be the world's biggest
most snot filled sneeze ever...
now I am no stranger to dog snot,
but this one came with a not so wonderful doggy exclamation point
from his butt...
So is that a dog snart, or a snuffy, or what exactly would be the term????
How do you combine a dog sneeze with a fluffy
depending on your family terminology in these things....
because let me tell you this needs its own term to describe the eye watering
cringe inducing disgustingness of it...
I do know that it is actually one of the greatest grump inducing ways to start your day
of course not helped by uproarious laughter from the daughter figure
she is truly starting to get on my nerves
school can't come quick enough...
as punishment for her distinct lack of appropriate sympathy
I have nabbed the necklace that Lori Moon sent me as a present recently
back from the ungrateful little wench
and it is now residing in the studio where I can enjoy it....
Heading into the studio after that to tackle butterflies was quite a stretch
Inspiration Avenue have set that as the theme this week
and it took quite a bit of muttering and mumbling to get my head in a space
that would do justice to the delicate beauty of those winged creatures...
of course it did get me wondering what a butterfly snuffy would be like
maybe Rose Petals
or maybe it is actually pretty nasty...
maybe it is one of the great secrets of the animal world and there are
moths and critters sitting in an insect bar someone talking
about the whopper that Monach dropped the other day...
either way I abandoned pretty and went a bit earthier
I read The John Fowles book The Collector
when we were up at the beach
and it was about a pretty freaky
so it seemed appropriate to the tone of the day
and so Inspiration Avenue
are lucky enough to get to share the miracle with me
as much as I would have liked to share the snart with you all
I am just too nice to do that...
and hope that many of you will do the same
and check out all these wonderful links
by people who probably didn't start their day the same way I did....
