Good Morning Friends.

It's a gorgeous morning here. I have my window open and there is a cool breeze coming in. Life is Good.:biggrin:

Hmmmm....what am I going to do today? Oh I think I'll do some painting.:vs_blush:

Leighann I'm so happy to hear your back is better. Take it easy so it doesn't act up again.

Chanda my bones hurt just thinking about camping. We use to do it when we were younger, but we had a tent and slept on air mattresses on the ground. Don't think I could do that any longer.

I'm thinking up an original composition to do with the Gary Jenkin's influence in it after I finish the picture I'm working on. Right now I'm finishing another try at the picture to send Rosey (my sister). This is my 5th attempt at it....:ImaPoser:

Hope everyone has a great day and shares it with all of us. These are my favorite threads also.

Good morning. Need another cup of coffee to get up and around today.

I do hope to get some work done on my drawing today. Need the art therapy!

Can't wait to see whatever new creation you come up with Terry. Loving what you have been producing.

As far as camping we go a variety of ways. We have the traditional tent but then we also have a wall tent which is considerably larger and we can put a wood stove in that and it's basically a 12 by 12 room. It is also made out of heavy canvas so it weighs a good hundred pounds. We have a popup camper and a fifth wheel camper as well. Even with the big camper though we aren't "campground" people. We haul those fifth wheels into the back country..don't like campground atmospheres. So..no matter what route we want to take, either primitive or deluxe, we can do it. We often will use a combo if we do extended stays. The wall tent makes a great cook tent. I will be honest..it has been years and years since we last did the regular tent thing. Last time we did it I woke up (relatively speaking..I was awake most of the night due to cold) with a white head due to heavy frost...then once the Mr. Buddy heater kicked on everything melted and became a sopping wet mess. not fun.

Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Sounds like you have camping down to a science Chanda:laugh:. My new creation is going to be yellow roses against a mostly purple background. One of my first paintings was yellow roses against purple background and a friend of mine in NY liked it and took it. Now I look at that picture and get a little nausea, so I wrote her a note that I'm going to do a replacement for her and mail it to her free of charge. I want this one to really be great. This lady has been very nice to me.

Good morning!
Not so good for me, I woke up at 8 cuz the people is working at home replacing the floor got locked... one door just didn't want to open, so I was dealing with it. After an hour I finally got it, and could have some breakfast :3

What i'm going to do? Hmmm... studying informatic security and training a bit after launch

Does anyone want a lemon? Cuz we have 30 Kilos (66 pounds) here >.<


I love camping! When I was younger I used to camp every year with my BoyScout troop :3

More flowers! Flowers for everybody! Flowers for the lady, Flowers for the gentleman. Flowers!! >.< (Sorry xD) :vs_smirk:
I love them, and you are doing it so good, with every new painting you are getting much better Terry, can't wait for the new one :glasses:

I'm guessing you have a lemon tree FanKi? I thought it was winter by you. Surely they don't get harvested in the winter. So how did you get so many lemons?

08-18-2015, 08:38 AM
You are right terry, we have a lemon tree ^^
We are in winter, but as the weather is mostly wet here (even in winter) lemons keep showing up the whole year, we obviusly have some ups and downs, but 2 or 3 times per year we get this ammount of lemons.

I can't even imagine having a lemon tree...it's making me want lemon bars, or lemon meringue pie.:biggrin:

My back is feeling pretty normal today. It just gives me fits sometimes, just to annoy me, I hurt it over 20 years ago, and I think there is probably some degeneration and arthritis.

The Facebook page is going well...I've gained followers that weren't already friends, so that is fun.:glasses:

Oh camping...haven't roughed it in many years. I think last time we went, we accidentally bought a tent that was much smaller than expected, so it made it quite the adventure. :wink:

Hi everyone! Yey! It was breezy for today..whew...thank you...
done another short comic, another design..and almost done with the other one..:wink:

FanKi wow dude that's a lot of lemons....When life gives you lemons, it's time for us to make some lemonade my friend :drink:...:biggrin: and speaking of lemon pies/muffins/cupcakes/bread...I am now craving for some..:bitehard: :lickout:
and camping...my mother's church community just had some camping last month and yeah she just had to invite her own kids..to be honest, I didn't like the spot...We were crowded there..tents everywhere..and it also rained that day so I was thankful as soon as we got home...-_-''...I prefer camping just with my family or friends.. :p

Take care people! :vs-kiss:
