Those Hippie Days

Yesterday I shared this poster on my Facebook page.  In my young years I was a "wannabe" hippie!  I wanted so bad to be and for the most part, I was.  I had the bell bottoms, long hair, flip flops or mostly barefoot.  I put lemon juice in my hair and sat in the sun to lighten it and I was all about peace and love and Rock 'n Roll!  The ONE thing I was not into and never will would be the marijuana stuff.  Just not my thing.  Hey, I didn't even have my first drink until I was 17 or 18 and then it was with my parents and family.  
The long hair... 

Oh, and bell bottom, hip-hugger jeans that absolutely DRUG-THE-GROUND!  They were in tatters and the more tatters the better.  Plus they were embroidered all over.  This pocket I saved when the jeans fell apart.  It was my initials but my friends called me "cute butt." 

Now, I proudly show off my gray hair that is getting longer by the day and I am loving it.  Embrace the gray! And as my 64th birthday fast approaches I am proud of my transition to adulthood but I sure wanted to go to Woodstock when I was young.  (Well, that would have never happened because I was too scared of my own shadow back then!)

What more can I say but, "I AM IN LOVE!!!"  In love with these two beauties.  They are finally in one place together again and I am happy, truly happy and content.  Plus having their momma's, my fantastic, wonderful, BEAUTIFUL daughters together to enjoy being sisters in one town again.

Life will change a bit, for the better around here.  No more FaceTime, just lots of hugs and kisses, laughter and joy abounding. 
We do have to wait for the hubby's to drive BACK to LA for more stuff and their car but soon all this moving part will be a memory to go in the memory book.  Now on to new wonderful memories.

Roses, Kiddos and Fish

Thought I would touch base here.  Since my life, and everyone else's, is pretty much at a standstill, I can't report much in my world.  Just painting and grandkiddos.
Remember last weekend I picked a some peonies and roses at our cabin.  It was a beautiful weekend!  Last weekend I started this painting and yesterday finished it.  I am so very please with how it turned out.

Back to the weekend.  We finally, FINALLY got to spend time with Snicklefritz and we had such a fun weekend, even thought it turned chilly.  There was a bit of warmth and sunshine that The Hubby got to take her fishing.  She also got to drive the golf cart.  We played a lot of Uno, read books and played hair salon.
My goodness I have missed this little munchkin.  It was good to get one of her hugs and kisses. 

More news...

This little family, our youngest, hubby and little Smiley, are moving home to be close to family!!!  Since they live in LA the music scene is pretty much non-existent for them and it made more sense to move here, closer to us.  We are over the moon to have both my girls here, close and their families!!!!!  I can't tell you how happy we are.

Weekend Getaway's

We've taken every opportunity on the weekends to jet away to our home away from home.  It is so beautiful this time of year in Northeast Oklahoma.  Enjoy the photos and maybe some will become paintings.  In fact the first one is on my easel at this time.

We've refurbished the outdoor screen porch the past few months with a new outdoor fireplace, re-staining the floor and a new ceiling with new can lights.  We also took out a pole that was smack in the middle of the room and put a beam across for holding up the ceiling.  

The yard also is full of beauty with peonies, iris, and roses.  The white peonies remind me of my momma
