Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #59 (1520)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #59 (1520).



I went back to a word of inspiration for tonight's circle.  I simple one that I wish for all. 

I made some vegetable sushi rolls for dinner tonight.  They turned out great and everyone enjoyed them.  They weren't to difficult to make, and perhaps I'll search for some recipes now, to add a little spice to them.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #57 (1518)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my circle and photo for day #57 (1518).



Today was a rather lazy day around here.  After our late night last night, I think Chris and I were a little tired.  The boys keep us busy as well, so we are still adjusting to getting things done when they are sleeping.  I was inspired by last nights drawing to continue with a word in the circle.  I like how this one connects with the circle. 

I did have a photo of the Oscars opening, but decided that the boys were much more interesting and cute.  This is towards the end of the night just before they will wake up one more time to go outside.  They got a little spoiled and were sleeping next to the girls on the couch.  They are just so sweet.  We spent the evening watching the Oscars, and it was a nice way to end the day.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #56 (1517)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #56 (1517).


A very quick circle tonight.  We went out with friends tonight to see Peter Case in concert.  He was the lead singer of the Plimsoals as well as other groups, and has many solo albums.  It was in a small venue, which was fantastic.  He sounded amazing and his stories were even better.   Such a wonderful combination.  It was so nice to get out and have a great evening with friends, and that's where my simple circle comes in.  Joy, that's exactly what I felt when I got home.

That's all for me, it's very late and I need to get to bed.  I'm sure the puppies will be up early again.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #55 (1516)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #55 (1516).


I liked the bold lines of yesterday's drawing, so I wanted to use similar lines.  I decided to go with my waves as the main design and the circles are just little accents.  I finished it, then set in on the counter after the girls finished the dishes, and I set it down in some water, that I didn't see.  The paper buckled and it also looks like it picked up some oil.  I like my photos to be crisp and clean so this bugged me a little.  There is nothing I can do about it, so it's silly to worry about it, but in the past I have to admit  I would have let it bother me.  Now though, I realize it's just one of those things, and I can move on to something else.


I have been wanting to make something for our neighbor, and now that I finally felt better I baked some cookies.  I was glad to get them done and drop off a little treat to them.  I do enjoy making things for others.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #54 (1515).



A nice grouping of circles tonight.   A like the simple composition and it has a nice balance.

Lots of photos of the boys today and this was simply the cutest one.  Of course most of them were cute ones, but this one just makes me smile.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #53 (1514)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #53 (1514)



Some simple circles tonight, in circles.  Nice and easy.  I really need to start earlier in the day now, because by the time 8pm comes around I am pretty tired.  It's hard for me to focus.

The boys got up two times last night, so I was pretty tired this morning.  I wasn't sure if I would be able to get a workout in, but I figured it out.  I was glad I did because it felt good, and I really missed it.

That's all for now.  I am starting to fall asleep as I type this.  I need to get to bed and be prepared for the boys to get up again.  Hopefully not, but I am not expecting it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #52 (1513)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #52 (1513).



I am not to excited about today's drawing but that's ok.  The inspiration was not flowing but I do have my circle done.  Chris and I went for a walk in the park today.  It's the first time we have been there since we got back from our trip and all the rain storms.  There were so many trees down, it really was sad.  These are just some of the big ones that fell.  There were quite a few more and it is a little hard to see.   I hope to see some plantings in the spring time, but we'll see.  Since we were in a drought for so long, I'm not sure they will plant more.

Well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #51 (1512)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.   Here is my circle and photo for day #51 (1512).



I am having a hard time staying up again.  It's wasn't the puppies last night, just me waking up at 2am, then falling asleep, and repeating that cycle every hour.  I'm not sure if the jet lag is just delayed but this is crazy.  I need to get a good night sleep and I hope I can tonight.  I have a simple drawing tonight and some cute pics of the puppies.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #50 (1511)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #50 (1511).


A simple design idea and I like it, and the potential of where it can go.   Well, today was a bit of a surprise day.  Hannah has been looking at a puppy all week, from an adoption shelter.  One group goes around to the local shelters and saves as many as they can, especially pregnant mothers, and then finds homes for them.  The mothers stay with a foster family until the puppies are born and then they work to get them adopted.  That is what Hannah found.  She fell in love with one and wanted to adopt him herself and take on all the responsibility.  We agreed to think about it and go with her.   Once we got there and she held him, that was it.  It was pretty much it, for us too.  They had about 20 puppies there, and Hannah's was from a litter of six.  His name is Tahoe and he is the white one.  Well she filled out all the paperwork and we were about to go and I heard that only one of his siblings was left.  I thought that was so sad.  We then decided to get another one.  Chris was right on board and once he held Tucker, well that was it.  It was a great decision because the transition is going quite well today, and them having each other makes it better.

Well that's all for now.  Exciting day.  I should get to bed a little early because I am sure there will be a couple of wake up calls throughout the night.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #49 (1510)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #49 (1510).


A relatively simple one tonight with some nice dot details that I like.


Hannah and I returned from the store this morning to see this little guy hanging out on the wall.  It looked like it was clinging for dear life.  After all the rain we got in the past 24 hours, it was probably trying to dry off a little. 

That's all for me.  I am finally posting on a computer again and now I need to go back and update all my old photos from the past two weeks.  For some reason the images don't load.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #48 (1509)


Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #48 (1509).



A pretty simple drawing again tonight.  A fine pen, with a few double line images and it's done.   I like the fine pen, those lines stand out for me as crisp and clean and really appeal to me.



It has been a very windy and rainy day here.  Pretty much non stop since about 1pm.   It's kind of crazy and I keep checking things to make sure they are not leaking.   We have some in the garage and around the window, and will need to get fixed when things dry up.   I didn't go out at all and have been resting for most of the day, to try and get rid of this cold.   When it came time to think of a photo, I saw my little basket in front of me with all my drawings stacked up.  I think it turned out to be a cool photo.  My blank paper sits in this basket along with my finished ones.  I am about five months behind in putting them in my album, so the stack looks cool in the basket, but I need to take the time to put them away now.

I guess that's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #47 (1508)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #47 (1508).




I sat down around 8pm tonight to do my drawing and nothing was coming to me.  I was just falling asleep.  The past days have caught up with me and being up for 24 hours yesterday, is finally hitting me.  I am beat and still congested, so I need to get to bed very early, for me that is.

A very simple drawing, which I really like.  I have a photo of the gift that we all got from Brian & Carrie.   We each chose our own word that was special to us and what we wanted to focus on.  It is a lovely present and a great way to give ourselves a reminder of what we are working for.

So that's it for me, I am off to bed.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #46 (1507)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my circle and photo for day #46 (1507).


A little time spent this afternoon on my circle.  We had about a 3 hour layover from our flight from Paris and are sitting in London Heathrow,  enjoying a little longer lunch and cocktails.  I think this one came out pretty good.  I like the connection of the circles and the patterns that flow from one to another.


Some pics of our flight from Paris and then  some of the 'big boy' which is our flight to Los Angeles.  I still can't believe the size of these planes, they are amazing to me that they can even fly.  They fly quite nicely and are very smooth and quiet, and it is quite easy to get used to, especially on a 10+ hour flight.  We are all set in our seats and they will be closing the door soon.   I'll see you tomorrow from California and my west coast time.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

Happy Valentines Day!  I hope you had a great day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #45 (1506).



A subtle circle today in a composition full of hearts.  Simple and fun.  We had a lovely last day in Paris.  It finished with a simple 'carpet picnic' for dinner.  A great way to end our trip.

That's all for me, we have an early start tomorrow and a very long day of travel.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a great day!   Here is my circle and photo for day #44 (1505).






My drawing today is a special birthday wish for a dear friend back in NY.  I thought it would be fun to make it up, then take a photo of me holding it in front of the Eiffel Tower, and that's what I did. It's fun because my drawing can be part of my photo as well.  A fun montage of the Eiffel Tower for my photo tonight, enjoy.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #43 (1504)

Hello,

I hope you had a great day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #43 (1504).


Today I spent time working on my circle, while waiting to board our plane.   It's nice to have extra time in the day to work on it.  Lots of 'circles', in today's circle drawing.  I like today's, it's fun and a little different.  

It was an emotional morning because we all left the villa and on to our separate ways.  It truly was an amazing experience.  We all gathered, not knowing one another, but shared all of ourselves.  We were from all over the globe, California, Pennsylvania, London, Canada, and Singapore.  I really can't describe how awesome it was.  I feel like I could try to describe it, but it wouldn't be enough.  So that's where I will leave it for now. 


Chris and I flew to Paris today.  We are here until Wednesday morning and I am excited for our next adventure.  That's all for now.  Enjoy your night and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #42 (1503).



I had the time to do my circle while we were in our work mode.   It was nice to take the time in the afternoon to complete it and not have to stress over trying to get it done in a short time.  A nice one and I am happy with it.





A brilliant day, for our last day.  Lots of sharing again and just unexplainable moments.  I am truly grateful for this entire experience and all that I am taking away from it.  Truly awesome trip.

That's all for me, it's 11:40pm and it will be an early morning of packing and saying goodbyes.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.   Here is my circle and photo for day #41 (1502).



A relatively simple idea for a circle again tonight, with some leaves representing growth and a heart, which speaks for itself.



A very busy day of sharing and conversing with everyone on the retreat.  It's been quite an incredible day and a tiring one as well.  So that will be all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.   Here is my circle and photo for day #40 (1501).



We had a long day with traveling and then going right into our retreat.   It's been a great day with so much learned and I am tired.  My mind is a bit of a mush ball, so this is all I came up with tonight.  I like the potential of it, I just think it needs some more.



My photo montage is about the journey and then our destination tonight.   The villa is pretty incredible and our room is lovely!

That's all for me, the last one in the house that is up still.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo Day #39 (1500)

Hello,
I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #39 (1500).
A little bit of a different drawing for me.  We are taking a little break and I spent a little bit of time coming up with today's circle.  I like the design of it and it is a little out of the box for me.


My photo montage is everything we have done today, up until about three.  Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Abbey Road Studios, Portobello Road and many trips on the Underground, to get all over town.  We finished with a great lunch at The Distillery, located on Portobello Road.  We have just a few more minutes to relax and then we are headed out to meet up with a friend who lives in London.

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Project 365, Circles & Photo Day #38 (1499)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #38 (1499).


A simple stack of circles tonight, I couldn't think of any other ideas.   I am a bit tired because I have not been sleeping well.  I couldn't figure out why, because I am tried, but then I realized I have been drinking tea in the mornings.  I love tea but I only drink decaf coffee usually now, so I didn't think about the caffeine in the tea.  I went for a peppermint herbal tea this morning so hopefully that will be fine.

Another full day in London with lots of pictures taken.  We got to see Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & Portobello Road.  Here is just a sampling of what we saw.




That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #37 (1498).





We just got back to the room at 11pm after a day in London.  We did quite a bit and I am tired for sure.  I did a quick drawing where the circles are little accents tonight.  It was more about the pattern.

Like I said we had a full day in London.  We rode the Underground, saw Trafalgar Square, The  National Gallery, Somerset House, Big Ben and Parliament in the distance, a lovely dinner at the Savoy Grill and finished our evening seeing Kinky Boots! It was a fantastic show and I recommend it, if you ever get the opportunity to see it.

That's all for me.  It's late and I should be getting to bed now.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo Day #36 (1497)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #36 (1497).





I got to spend a little more time today on my circle.  We had to wait a few hours to get into our hotel room, since our flight got in so early.   We did walk around for a little bit in Notting Hill, the area we are staying in.  It looks lovely so far, and I love the gardens surrounded by the homes, where the residents are the only ones who have access.  We are staying at The Portobello Hotel, a converted mansion and it has great character.  Our hotel backs up to one of the gardens as well, and it seems like a great place to be able to unwind and enjoy, right out your back door.

That's all for now.  I am trying to adjust to the new hours and I need to try and sleep now.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for Day #35 (1496).

I am on a plane, about to head to London.  I just did a quick circle, and of course I already have a bunch of photos.  The unfortunate thing is the app does not let me add the photos.  I have them done, I just may need to update them all when I get home.  I'll keep trying though.  I'm a little nervous but looking forward to the trip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #34 (1495).



A nice and easy circle, representing the moon tonight, with a few surrounding stars.

Chris and I are getting ready to travel and unfortunately we left all the packing until the day before.  I had it on my list to start earlier in the week, but I never got to it.  So, feeling a little rushed now.  I went to do my post tonight and double checked my tally number and found out I was off by 5 days.  I jumped ahead on December 31, so I had to go back and adjust all those numbers.  That took a bit.  They are all correct now, so that's all for me.  Still have some work to do.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly
