Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)
Saturday ... Yup -- the weekend is here, and by this time next week I will be in Liloville !!! :)
I think that's going to by the name of our "diary for mom" .. Life in Liloville !!! or The Adventures of Liloville!!! lol lol lol ..
Yesterday was a quiet day . I played in my room, and finished my first Gigi .. not really happy with her, but I have a color picker app .. when I can't find a shade that is in the photo in my selection, I ask for help, and it will most time show me a mix of colors to get to the color I'm looking for... Well .. this one kept pulling up greens in the color mixes, and I have not had luck with mixing greens into my colors ... and she ended up patchy .
Well --- I worked with the colors and tried to get rid of the sharp patches .. and I did the best I could .. but she's still too harsh ..
Soooo starting another one, with a different pose .. the 2 poses that I got were her being shy .. but it was enough for the colors .... I found a golden retriever smile in my stock, and am trying that .. on a paper that's easier to blend with .. Yes .. there are light and dark drastic mixes, but they shouldn't be so drastic .. Sooo we start again .. lol ..
I had to laugh at mom yesterday .. She called, and we talked, and she asked what I was doing and I told her I was trying to revive Gigi .. and described what my problem was .. She said that it was probably because I was trying to be perfect because she bragged to the man (can't remember his name) and she put more pressure on me .. lol .. I laughed and said .. No .. All the drawings go through an ugly stage, but hers just went through a super ugly stage .. lol lol .. and I was trying to bring her back .. lol .. (well .. I don't think it worked too well .. lol) but I laugh .. no matter WHAT the conversation is .. it all falls back that it's her fault in one way or another .. lol .. but it was a nice conversation ..
Looks like it is going to be an open the house type day today .. :)
After the rain stops .. it's supposed to be gone by 8ish, and the high is supposed to be only to 75 ..
I got the call for Beauty yesterday .. and Jeff said that they tested her and drove her to bring her to temperature, and where she was parked, her nose was downhill .. and no puddle .. He was comfortable that they found the solution .. (we hope .. yesterday I drove home with the AC on, so I told hubby that if there's a puddle under her right now; that would be the reason .. ) and then this morning, I can't check, because .. well ..it's raining, and she's outside .. Hubby was sassy and said .. "there's a puddle underneath her" .. lol .. AFTER he asked if I was in a good mood ..lol lol lol ..
I've just about had my fill of cars, and troubles this week.. lol lol ..
So --- I'm hoping to use her for the running around this week .. my nail appointment on Tuesday, and my lunch with a friend on Wednesday .. but going to use Elsie for my Liloville vacation .. because she's letting me park in the garage, and I know Elsie would fit, but I'm not sure about Beauty .. but Beauty can park in OUR garage ..
I picked her up and parked her in the drive .. and well ... didn't go out since .. and hubby didn't say anything when he went out for the mail .. so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed .. I left and told Jeff .. I hope I don't see you for a few months .. lol lol .. he laughed .. He did say that all my photos that I sent to them, and the "sample pee" that I brought in .. helped greatly .. so maybe my persistance paid off .. keeping fingers really crossed this time ..
I spent a good part of my day in my playroom .. Hubby went to the zoo to get his steps, but the humidity was just too high .. I didn't want to take the chance .. so I stayed home and did laundry .. (all together now .. Oooooooooo ... lol) but now I have underclothes to pack for my Liloville stint .. :)
I found my selfie stick yesterday ... only problem, is I have to take one of my old phones with me; because the phone I have now, doesn't have the connection the selfie stick needs .. sooo I pulled out an old phone, and am charging it up .. lol lol .. I'm going to have so many electronics .. lol lol .. but the good news is the stuff I'm taking only requires 2 cables .. lol lol ..
So -- I started a new Gigi last night, until my eyeballs couldn't see straight anymore ..lol .. and re-looked at it this morning, and still pretty happy with her .. this paper is easier to work with smoothing out the areas with the changes in colors .. lite to dark, and I hope to be able to make it look more natural .. but we will see .. working white on white works on the eyeballs .. lol lol .. but if I take my time .. I think I can I think I can I think I can .. lol lol ..
Today I want to start prepping my packing list for Liloville, and work in my playroom, and enjoy the ability to open up the house and get some fresh air in here .. and and and ... In other words .. a quiet day ahead .. just trying to make it sound busy .. lol lol ... Unfortunately lately, I don't have to TRY ... it happens .. :)
Wishing everyone a wonderful day !!! I'm planning on having one !!!!
