Took me a few synonym-searches to find the word I liked. 😃

T-shirt: “I love this time of year. I can have grave-size holes filled in all over my yard, and people think I just went overboard with my Halloween decorations!” 😁

(A tad late. Sorry, we're behind on reviewing catalogs. For the fourth year in a row.)

So have you liked guacamole, Gail, before you realized it was made with avocados? As a kid I hated cheese... because my father hated cheese. But we loved pizza. 🤔 At some point I became aware that there was cheese on pizza! 😱 No no no, said my father, the stuff on pizza is MOZZARELLA. Oh, thought I, and took my next piece of pizza.

I can remember the first time I ate avocado — it was in the form of guacamole. We’d been invited for cocktails at a friend’s home before going out to dinner. For whatever reason, I was famished and she’d set out some guacamole and chips. There was no turning back after I dipped my first chip. Come to think of it… many things I now love once had a story that said , “Uh-uh, Not for you.” Including writing and connecting with new people. 😂

Thanks for sharing your pizza story! Love it.

Remember the little diced onions on McDonald’s hamburgers? I recall picking them off individually. 🤷‍♀️

“It seems that a decision to schedule three to four hours of daily, uninterrupted studio time was a bigger spoonful of oatmeal than the muses and I were ready for.” ~Typist

Well, apparently, Athens wasn’t built in a day either...

Chunk it down? Hmmm? 🤔

I feel like I know just a little bit about this idea...

#JustForToday #ODAAT 😎

And Paintist? Wow! 🤩

Looking forward to hearing more from “Studio!”

Have Truck and Studio ever spoken to each other?

I wonder what’s at the intersection of Truck AND Studio?

🤔🫣🧐

ODAAT Found it… One Day At A Time. Remember the show with Valerie Bertinelli?

Are you teasing me for my conscious non-use of the ‘definite article’ — ‘the.’

I had to look that up!

Intersection of truck and studio… some version of a tour bus?!

Not teasing at all. I love it!

Truly wondering what would result if Truck and Studio had coffee together?

Hmmm? 🤔

What would they talk about?

Studio to Truck: Hey there Big Boy, what’s it like to take Paintist and her gifts and supplies all over the place?

Truck to Studio: It’s great! What’s it like to have her completely focused on all the different things she creates?

Studio: I don’t know 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve never been alone with her. At least one of “The Girls” is always around and between the contemplating and the twirling, I sometimes wonder how she does it?

😉😂🤣😂😁

Here’s another morning/day! Oatmeal with fresh berries sounds yum. And the adventure has just begun. I must confess our brekkie start was a bit more caloric. Beth and I, with Izzie, visited an outdoor snack bar at our favorite city park. Lots of other folks, many with their dogs, had the same idea. Sunny with wisps of fog, 70°-ish, lovely. The breakfast sammies? Mine a huge croissant with cream cheese, tomatoes, bacon strips, and Swiss cheese. Accompanied by hot black coffee.

The overall effect offered a gentle, visually, and “palette-y” way to ease into our Saturday. From St Bernards to chihuahuas, Izzie was in a state of bliss. Michelangelo advised stepping back from our work periodically, perhaps to lunch or talk with friends, so that upon returning our work takes on a fresh new sense. I’ve not read that he advised that as a precursor to doing our work!

My final thoughts? Having a cup adorned with dogs seems critical, more berries and less croissants is advisable, and regularly revisiting our aspirations is recommended to keep us out of the brambles! Hugs, all!

Your breakfast sounds delicious! Except for the croissant. I only like them is they’re combined with chocolate. 🤷‍♀️

The pictured coffee carafe was a gift from my mother-in-law. I skipped yoga class today, so I felt the mug might might suffice. Namaste.

I see croissants iced from time to time. Not familiar with the chocolate. Sometimes I buy a bag of mini-croissants to substitute for dinner rolls or bread. The buttery taste is a nice touch for my tastebuds. Everything can be this... 😁
