Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Bought a Very Small Pecan Pie!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  latest Youtube!

I love pecan pie but my son doesn’t like it and Clyde can’t eat wheat flour so I never buy one.  Today I found a very small pecan pie in the bakery section and snapped it up! It is only five inches in diameter.  I can handle a small one by myself!  Looking forward to a slice tonight!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Loves the Little Things…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  latest Youtube!

I live to paint but I am glad that the little things in life make me so happy!  Going out to dinner with my husband and son is no big deal but I enjoy it so much!  The butterflies in our yard get my undivided attention and the amazing array of colors I see every day are a constant source of excitement.  Artists never really grow up!  I am so glad I am still a kid in so many ways!  Time for a beautiful walk!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Most of the time, even when it is hot, I wear pajamas.  If I don’t, after a while I wake up and have to put them on.  My temperature seems to change a lot during the night.  Clyde says the same thing.

There is a great funny on Facebook that cracked me up!  The cartoon is of an apartment fire and someone backing down the fire escape with out any clothes on.  The caption reads, “Good reason to always wear pajamas!”

I have been working hard on computer stuff most of the day and also got some housework done!  Usually I have a lot to do after dinner but for once I am about caught up!  I hope I don’t remember something that I had conveniently ignored.

Cheers!

Please check out my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

 

I was all set to send out a newsletter on Mailchimp last night when I realized I needed to change the title due to changed circumstances and could not figure out where I could do that!  No problem with editing everything else.  My husband finally figured it out and then I couldn’t get to the edit page for a few other things I needed to do.

That monkey and I still need time to work things out!

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!

I am going to take a one day break from my People Art Blogs to present two recent Pawleys Island paintings. 

I have already posted His Spot but I thought it would good with my latest painting, Silver Lining at Pawleys Island.

 

IMG_1664Silver Lining at Pawleys Island   Original  30″ x 22″  Acrylic Painting     $1350

Silver Lining at Pawleys Island is an intense shore painting at this beautiful South Carolina beach.

The light streaming down from behind the clouds created a startling effect and the birds are great visual accents to the scene.

His Spot is a beautiful Pawleys Island evening painting. My husband is not much for swimming in the ocean. He is a self-taught naturalist and concentrates on bird populations. He spent many hours at this spot on the marsh side around the corner from the house we stayed at. He saw over 100 different species on our five day vacation.

A Cheerful Still life!

 

I found another great ghost story on  Local Asheville Ghost Stories website!

 

Battle Mansion is located near The Grove Park Inn.  Supposedly, it is haunted by a servant girl named Alice.

They say she either fell or was pushed down the stairs.  The mansion is also haunted by the former owner, Samuel Battle.  He has been seen wearing a top hat and formal attire.

When the mansion was the location of 13WLOSTV Alice was often seen by employees.  She wears a long, old fashioned dress.  Sarah Harrison, the writer of this report talked with two employees of Grove Park Inn and one of them swore that some wires hanging from the ceiling were swaying back and forth on their own.   The other worker said he was grabbed when he walked down the stairs. The man that grabbed him fit the description of Samuel Battle.  He was presented a picture of the doctor and is sure of his claim.  SPOOKY!

The mansion was demolished in 2006.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Kessler Ant Diner –  Open 24/7!

Every year when the weather gets warm we have hoard of ants in our kitchen.  We have tried everything to get rid of them without success.  Ant traps don’t work and we have tried a number of safe remedies that work at first and then the ants are back in full force.  One summer talcom powder did the trick for a while and then they were back.

This summer we have a remedy that consists of putting a few drops of a glucose solution with poison on small squares of paper.  The ants eat the solution and take the poison back to the nest.  This one was working great for a while!

Now they are all just sitting in a circle around the drops having a great time!

Not with the Shoes on!


I made it to the lake and swam with a great friend!  I recently bought some slides that are like shoes with holes in the sides and are very light.  I don’t like the feel of the lake bottom so I kept them on at first.  Then I started my laps and took them right off.  It was like having someone pull me from behind.  Beautiful day today!
