Something new Happening here

So, have you tried any of these products by Norwex?

Today I went to a ‘party’ here in the park, all us ladies went and I believe all of us bought something, a cleaning product usually though I ordered a pet mitt to ‘loosen loose hairs” in hopes that I will be able to wear black clothing without looking like I’m sharing Charley’s coat. He sheds like crazy, good thing I love him.

Anyway I’ve signed up for a party in March. You will no doubt be hearing more about their products and you may decide you want to host a party too! The neighbor giving the party, said it was her first time doing so and said she is having the party to share her appreciation of the product that she has used for some time and really likes them and the company. (plus she got a bunch of freebes)

The products are not cheap. But when you look at the final cost and the fact that they are long long lasting, it all turns out to be cost effective.

So now I need to learn what I need to learn to be successful at this new endeavor, always a challenge., I doubt that I will sell mountains of products but I like the products, they were demo’d today and despite the cost, orders were made and more orders have been suggested.

I know I need their laundry detergents that are safe for the environment and uses a plant based formula where one bag of detergent washes up to 100 loads. It takes a lot of Tide to do 100 washes.

Oh geez I sound like a commercial don’t I!

Anyway, I’ll probably want to know who would like to be invited to the ‘party’ at some point, maybe check out their products and who knows you may find something you didn’t know you needed until now. Seems like we have the party on facebook, I’ll find out how that works and post here and on facebook.

I like enviro friendly almost anything…….Just think you would not have to go down the cleaning products line at the SuperMart ever again with just a few of these fine products. Many of their products are made from recycled OceanBound plastic. I like that, less plastic in our oceans is good.

The company’s global mission is……

Improving the quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our home.

It is a product of Norway

Did you stay til the end of my post?

Thanks!

Yikes, March is almost here!

Today I am 77

Loving my grey!

Birthday cake at happy hour today baked by CJ (owner) she takes care of us like we are her children so we all get a birthday cake. I’m feeling good, heard from my sisters and a brother and my kids. It’s been a good start to a new year.

Yesterday I worked outside getting anxious for Spring I’ve planted some bulbs here and there and can’t wait to see them . I rearranged my rugs and plants. I even got a bit of sun burn. It has been beautiful the past couple afternoons.

The door window in GG was slipping, I hadn’t noticed it but a friend did and-set about fixing it but it was more difficult than anticipated so tomorrow we’ll get back at it. The day we tried it was too cold and windy and things didn’t set,

A neighbor gave me a step he didn’t need and it is perfect at my entry I am fortunate to have helpful neighbors and friends.

A great way to start my 77th year.

NOT SURE I LIKE THIS SET UP HERE

Too busy perhaps, I’m talking about this new web design I put here. Isn’t that the way it goes, you plan something new and find you like the old better than the new but can’t reverse at this point. A good project for a rainy day always a challenge figuring out how to work this out on my computer and I’ve been a bit lazy here lately.

We had one day of beautiful winter snow in Caballo yesterday, today it’s almost gone, I think that is the best way to have snow, one day of beauty to appreciate and then gone without a lot of messy mud to deal with. Poor Charley didn’t know what to do when I told him to go out to pee, he needed a gentle shove to get him going, then he liked the snow and was eager to go but we didn’t go far, too cold. The big wet flakes of snow would have been great to build a snow man and snow balls. the tree outside my window was covered, felt like Minnesota for a day. ( and only a day)

I am now a resident of New Mexico, my new drivers license photo is just as bad as my Texas photo. But not worse.

A neighbor stopped by my studio the other day to tell me I should take my paintings to Las Cruces. He thinks my paintings on canvas paper will be something new and that I have enough of them to make a good showing at the Saturday fairs in Las Cruces. He says the fair is weekly and runs down several city blocks and is always well attended. Las Cruces is about 60 miles south. I’ll take a ride done there to see what it looks like, he says it a free market place.

I love free.

So I painted 3 more paintings of similar colors and now I’m out of canvas paper. Need to order more today, thanks to amazon delivery I’ll get it quickly so I can paint some more. This canvas I’m painting on is not what artists use to sell their paintings on but I like painting on it because I can fold them up or even cut them up to use for some project. Easy to send in the mail if I have a sale that’s not local. And hanging them in a frame they look just as good as when painted on canvas or board.

You should have seen the mess it was trying to paint in my RV on snow day. I’d been to Walmart to shop for food as the cold was expected and I didn’t want to go out if I didn’t need to. I’d collected some paints and all the other stuff i’d need while I painted sitting on my bed with Charley beside me, he taking up too much space, It gets complicated but I finished one painting and painted two more, I haven’t taken pictures yet but will. I’ll need to take those paintings out of the frames and sign and varnish them, I hate that part, always afraid I’ll mess up putting the varnish on them. they do look good in these cheap Walmart frames, bright outrageous colors of red orange and pink.

This is my red period! Exuberance needed, these three latest paintings shout joy at you, you need to be ready for them, you will love them or hate them.

My finger tips hurt. People would say that is what you must accept when learning to play guitar, but I think it is from having too much paint on my fingers, acrylic paint is very drying and together with dry skin it makes them feel like paper cuts. Yes I did play around trying to learn cords on the guitar but not enough to cut my skin! Something, maybe a combination of events has disrupted the integrity of my finger tips. So far the only advancement I’ve made on the guitar is that I’ve broken 2 strings, small e stings both times. I should have ordered plenty of strings,maybe I will when I order the canvas paper.

Well I’ve babbled on here while eating thin latte oreo cookies and just drinking grape juice…….. the wine box is in the studio where I don’t have to keep it in the refridge it’s cold enough, and makes me go out to get a glass full, cuts down on usage and stimulates my imagination when painting in the studio and welcomes anyone passing by for a glass and conversation.
