For the last several weeks I could not log on to MyBloggers. At first I thought it had something to do with my PC but I could not log on with my Mac book either, so I don't know what the problem was. Today, just for the heck of it, I tried a link in my email and I got in! Now, I am afraid to log out for fear that I will not be able to log in again. This is what I kept seeing:
As you can see from the address, I was trying to follow the same link I got today to one of Jeri's posts, and today, it magically allowed me to log on. Weird, huh? (Wonder if I was locked out by the landlord for not paying my rent? :-)
I'm trying my hand at pastels and it occurs to me that I need to choose different subjects. Today's pastel is a cottage at dusk and it did not come out so great. I've done some decent pastels in the past. Why am I struggling with them so much now? Maybe because I just can't stop painting unnecessary details and the ones that I consider 'decent' are landscapes.
I liked it so little by the time I was halfway done that it was a struggle to finish. Let me find a landscape that I like and try again.
One last thing in case I get locked out again. I don't look forward to Mother's Day. It has become my least favorite holiday of the year. My one son preceded me in death and the other does not believe that I merit a single act of appreciation or consideration. It was a real struggle just to get him to give my grandsons their hand-painted Easter cards- three days after Easter and no call from them either.
