Sometimes, especially after the November-December-Holiday-Chaos, it's good to pull back and ponder for a bit. To think about where you're headed and what you really want. Things like how best to protect and have fun with that little guy above, now that he's suddenly so much more mobile; how best to utilize this blog, now that it's coming up on its 10th anniversary; how to eke out more creative time, and what to do when I have it; what lifestyle changes we might want to make. You know, important stuff. So that's what I've been doing this week. What about you?

New Watercolor Pencils From Sweet Nephew Geoff

Monday, January 9, 2017


One of the things I love most about our little town are the color-mad murals that keep popping up here and there. One of the first to appear was on Ino'z Brew 'n Chew, facing the bridge that crosses Cypress Creek.

Unfortunately, that location leaves it vulnerable to high-water events, and it lost a bit of its color-madness with each successive flood.

Or maybe this one in the Community Center came first. I'm not really sure.

Next came this one on Calley's Jewelry, located in a building that began life as a filling station.

Still a work-in-progress when I snapped this photo.

The latest additions were on the Boot Whisperer's shop...

and this one behind Santa Fe Connection. I seem to love each new addition even more than the last.

And, as I was scrolling through all of my photos to find these pics for you, I stumbled across this one...

of that half-painted cinderblock wall which I've successfully ignored for nigh on ten years now. And, it got me to thinkin', how cool would it be...?
