I've Caught the Digital Bug!!!!

*****image removed for publication*****

Needless to say I am a bit slow at times. It seems while the world around me has been trying new things with their digital selves, I refused. Then one day I saw a piece in a magazine (I believe it was Somerset Memories) and I decided why not? I wanted to share one of my attempts with you all to test the water so to speak. I call this piece modern creation. It symbolizes the merging of this world with the world of digital (as well as having a female Creator!!!) I sent it in to be reviewed for Somerset Digital. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Once again love to know your thoughts! Thank you all who read and post!!! It makes my day!!!!

charity for the day: Many of you who read this blog were a part of this fantastic group a few years back when we had an art auction for them. Now they are collecting again for homeless teenagers for the necessities such as hats, gloves, even fast food gift cards so they can get food. If anyone is interested, please check out their website and if you can help out. I know the economy is tough but even a little bit goes a long way!!!! thanks as always!

Playing Hooky

Yesterday was a first for me. I have never (that I can recall anyway), ever played hooky until this past Tuesday. It was a family day of hooky including an escape to the beach for the day. (yes the beach! ) For those of you on the east coast you know that while it was warm it was not necessarily beach weather but still....the kids had fun. There was a few pouts at first (Michael). Even though he got a day off from school, nothing was opened and we hoped at least something would be! When we had gone before around that time, things were, but being the economy the way it is and it being a Tuesday as opposed to a weekend, places were tightly shut. While this was discouraging even to me because I was hoping to win some more stuffed animals to add to my collection, we made the most of it. The kids went on the beach searching for shells and had first pick:) The wind whipped about us but it didn't seem to bother anyone except me. My ears began to ache mercifully until my sweet husband gave me his hooded shirt. We trekked for about an hour searching for treasures. I found the carcass of a rather large fish. Completely amazed I snapped a photo of it. I have never seen that on a beach before. Since we had gotten down there rather early, we searched for other things to do. We went to the Cumberland mall, but didn't stay long. We traveled to a few other stores in the area but didn't see much. Finally, we capped our day by going to Applebees. The food was delicious! When we finally got to that part and past the earlier pouts from our eldest, he admitted to having a rather good day. We all did in fact. An impromptu trip was what we needed to lift our spirits. Today when I took Mike to school, we had a bit of an agreement ( or so I thought) to tell the teacher we were out of town for the day. He didn't want to lie and I didn't want to teach him to so going out of town sufficed. Then the dreaded question was posed.

Where were you yesterday?



Yeah out of town worked out really well:) Still, it was fun playing hooky for the day. NOW back to work and wash....ahhhh....tomorrow and hooky are looking good again....

Recycling tip:

Since I was at the beach I figured I would share this with you all since it was the first I had heard of it. When you recycle plastic bottles and jars, remove the cap/lid first or they will not be recycled due to it being two different kinds of materials. Thanks!
