Oil paintings

Did some dabbing in oil paints over the weekend, something I'd never done before. Only ever worked with acrylic.

Pet Shop Outing

Yesterday was a rainy day here in Athens, OH. My daughter had a play date at Burger King, but it wasn't going to well. No one wanted to play, just sitting around. Then it was suggested we go to the pet shop to see the animals. I wasn't too excited about it, but once we got there it was a great experience. My daughter loved it. She got to sit inside of the cubicle with the dog she chose! She did it twice, she liked it so much! She has always wanted a little dog...maybe someday when we have a house again!
So that is an option of something to do here in town with kids, although there were kids of all ages (adults included) there. It was something I had never seen before, people sitting in a small space with a dog, playing with it. I must confess I found it quite amusing.
We will definitely be back there!
What do you do on rainy days with your kids?

Motto for the Day

The world would be a happier place if we could do more of what makes us happy! But sometimes it's hard to do. We get stuck doing what we feel we have to do to survive and forget about living.
So let's do more of whatever makes us happy!

Happy Monday!
Other than being a teacher I am also a photographer..so here are some recent pictures I took on a day I was feeling low and just went outside and took some shots around the grounds of the apartment complex where I live. Some days I need to go outside a get some fresh air and breathe!

New Blog, my own domain

Today marks the day that I got my own domain! After a few weeks of reading online and trying to figure out which one to go with I just went with the one I already had. Simpler that way!
So welcome to my blog/site!
I will try to customize it and get it all looking the way I want it to, but it definitely will not happen over night.
All that to say WELCOME to my blog! Enjoy!

I have been into exercising and working out since I can remember. Well, my teen years at least! But I have always wanted to be a runner, but could never get myself to do it...to just run!
All that has been changing since moving to the US in June of 2017. Started running yahoo!!!
For Christmas hubby got us a treadmill so I am running. Not too much, not yet! Started with 1 mile and am now up to two. I did three miles a few days, but then I didn't get to it everyday so couldn't keep it up...back down to 2 then 2.5. Trying to work up to 5! I wanna run in a marathon...THIS YEAR!!!
