Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at Snow and Stopping the Munchies


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Wow!  Lots of white stuff out there!  Our street has not been plowed but I can see traffic moving on one of the main roads from my window.  The guys have shoveled the sidewalk twice now and it is still pouring down. 

I’ll never forget what my brother did when we were kids.  He would clear off the driveway after about an inch or two had accumulated and then repeat as often as necessary.  That way he was just pushing it off rather than lifting heavy snow. 

Now he has a snow blower.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have fought the battle of the bulge my whole life.  I can’t imagine what it would be like to have the freedom to eat anything without gaining weight.

Anyway, I have learned lots of tricks over the years to keep my weight down and I recently discovered a new one that surprised me.

Once in a while I get the munchies and give in and then am mad at myself.  I hate being stuffed.  It ruins the great experience of eating.  It is like I have to over eat once in a while  to remind myself I don’t want to do that.

Exercise is supposed to make you hungry but if I choose to exercise when I am about to over eat it actually takes my appetite away! 

Since Clyde is also prone to eating a little too much I told him I had a new way to stop the munchies.

He said,” Sew your lips together?  That would probably do it but if you can still eat, then you deserve it.”

Smarty pants.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is not looking forward to the Snowstorm


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I love to look at snow but I hate being socked in when the roads are covered.  Our roads have been cleared so I will be running around to stores and the library before the really big storm dumps a blanket on us. 

Heavy snow storm is predicted for tomorrow starting this evening.  I hope it fizzles.  I still haven’t gotten to the store for boots.  Maybe I can get that done today.  

Winter cheers!

I have Line Dance and Yoga on the same day for a while and I really am tired at the end of the day.  I am always tired but last night I was extra pooped! 

Anyway, lots to do today and I keep running into road blocks that I put in my Life with The Word and Bird Man section.  I will keep moving and stop tripping, I hope!

I don’t care how cold it is right now, I wish I were at the scene below!  Love the beach!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

When my son was little I read a lot of Sesame Street books to him.  One of our favorites was Grover’s Bad Awful Day.  It is a great book to read to kids so they can get through tough times.  Well,  I certainly thought about that book this morning.

You know you are having a bad day when the pajamas you threw on to the dresser falls in the trash can.

You know you are having a bad day when your water filter just sits there and does not fill up the pitcher.

You know you are having a bad day when you click on something and get a phony virus infection notice that you can’t get off without turning the computer off.

Lastly, you know you are having a bad day when you call your husband to ask about a computer problem and the computer gives you a dirty look and just spins and spins and spins.

I am going to go get groceries so I can say I got something done this morning and then come back to all my computer work.

Cheers!

I was so pleased the Aquatic Center was open today!  I had to use the competition pool which is always colder than the leisure pool.  Oh well, once you get in and manage not to scream it isn’t so bad.  I like to swim once a week but can’t always get to a pool.  The chlorine is a problem this time of year but I slather lotion on and hope for the best!  Yoga and Line Dance tomorrow!   Got to keep moving!

More Children Paintings

Here are two more child paintings.  I especially like the movement in Bubble.  The colors seem to dance around the little girl!

When my son was young he loved to blow bubbles and my husband bought one of those huge bubble blowers and had all the neighborhood kids standing around him while he sent giant squirming bubbles into the air!

Bubble   Original 20″ x 16″ Oil Painting     $840

 Bubble is a wonderful genre painting. The little girl has a fancy bubble blower and is focusing on the large bubble in front of her. This painting has great color nuances and pleasant, flowing space. It is on stretched canvas and professionally framed in a gorgeous gold stained auburn frame.

Summer Fun is an energetic pastel painting of a boy playing in a river. The colors and textures make this a vibrant genre scene of the beautiful warm weather.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

My husband starts work much earlier than most people so he is my alarm clock.  He calls me from work and most of the time I am already up.  Today I was looking at some Facebook posts when I found something I liked very much!

 

After all these years with The Word Man I greatly appreciate word play.  I liked it before I met him but now it is especially funny to me!  

The one I saw today was – I JUST MADE A SONG ABOUT A TORTILLA.  ACTUALLY IT IS MORE OF A WRAP.

Another one of my son’s first friends was Paul.  They are still friends and see each other at the Bowling League games.  Paul used to live on our street but moved away a few years  ago.

When Alan was very young I made this painting of a small boy walking through the woods.  It was loosely based on a photograph of someone else.  I changed the way the boy looked so that it was not a portrait.  Alan insisted it looked like Paul and he wanted to visit my studio every day to look at the painting of Paul.  I decided to name it “Like Paul”.  There is a strong resemblance.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I enjoyed my short trip to The Meadows of Dan with my husband on Monday.  I have never painted Mabry Mill and I wanted to get a number of photos to work from.  Such a beautiful place!  I highly recommend this beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway site!  Such a peaceful, lovely place and there is a great restuarant there as well!

I feel like Sue Heck on The Middle!  I may not get umpteen hits but I am excited about the Youtube video I hope to have up this evening!  I am a serious, hard-working artist but I love to laugh and I got my husband in on this one! 

He has his script and he should be ready when he comes home from work. 

 

He is not happy with the script and is going to call his agent and find out how he got stuck with this gig.

I think it will be funny but humor is a strange thing.  We’ll see!

Bowling was Great! It is always a lot of Fun!


Bowling was great last night and My son and his friend Brian got high scores as always!  They really know their stuff! Brian got a 161 on one of the games.  I can’t remember the last time I got a score that high!

The ball practically takes me down the alley.  I life a weight every day but my arms are like the arms on a Tyrannosouras Rex!
