So the big question is…

Half full or half empty?

Until tomorrow.

Day Thirty one – Apple o’ Lantern

Happy Halloween!

We picked the last of the Pumpkins from the garden today and will have them lining the walkway for any possible trick or treaters that might stop by.  We also had a massive beet that got lost in the garden jumble – it had to have been six inches across.  I roasted that baby this afternoon so we’ll see if it remained sweet.  We also uprooted the rest of the potatoes, turnip, and a couple more acorn squash.  Gardening is difficult on my body with AS but it keeps me stretching, bending, and working my muscles plus I love to see things grow!  And – I couldn’t do it without Doug.  Thank goodness he loves it too! (Watch, he’ll post a comment and say he’s forced into it) LOL!

Until tomorrow.

Day Thirty – Apple n’ Bones

Art Apple - Day Thirty

I had such a creative block today.

Tomorrow for Halloween I have an Apple o’ Lantern planned but I think I’ve done every conceivable Halloween image possible.  At least it seems that way but with 365 days of apples needed, I will be creating Art Apples that are relevant to the calendar, current events and happenings so please humor me with a few more Halloween apples.  LOL!

Doug was wonderful help to me talking it out and giving suggestions.  I thought maybe a caramel apple or a Beetle Juice apple (I would have loved to do a Beetle Juice Apple but I couldn’t face doing a Tim Burton inspired apple and risk not doing it justice.)  So…  One of my thoughts was to do a skeleton but I couldn’t figure out a good way to incorporate the apple – but my sweet, clever husband came up with a solution.  He did however think I should have added some color but I love it just black and white.  Hope you do too!

Until tomorrow.

Day Twenty nine – Trick or Treat?

Halloween is just way more fun with little ones.  The sheer joy kids have in asking a simple question where the results are known – and really awesome.

We moved out to the country a few years ago and some Halloween nights (the ones that are bitter cold especially) we get no trick or treaters although the bowl is always full – just in case, right?

Until tomorrow.

Day Twenty eight – One Bat Apple

Don’t let One Bat Apple Spoil the Bunch!

So really… how do you resist such things?

Doug said I should do a bat apple and it all went downhill from there.  Puns in my family are just a challenge for another more dreadful and horrible follow up pun.  However they are also cherished.  And a rare clever pun….

Until tomorrow.

We are a baseball family.  Although our Colorado Rockies haven’t been able to recreate Rocktober of 2007 we still love them – and there’s always next year – right?

So this apple is because tonight is the first game in the 2010 World Series – for all you baseball fans!

Until tomorrow.

Today was the first day I felt a bit disoriented.  Maybe something like how Dorothy felt when she landed in Oz.  Overwhelmed, a little lost, but amazed with the scenery!  No more Land of Oz analogies – I promise…

I’m getting some wonderful ideas for Art Apples and I want to thank you all for the emails.  I’ve been keeping a running list and I’m going to keep track of who sent me which ideas.  You guys are very clever – I love them so please keep sending them in.  Tomorrow I have an apple that I’ve been planning for awhile.  Hope you check back in to see it.

Until tomorrow.
