My flight was un-event-ful!! Which is the way I like it!! LOL!!
I did not Art Journal as much as I thought I would! Darn-it!!
The non-sense all started when “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” was allowed to come out and sightsee. There is so much to see in Newport, RI….. how could I not let him see it all too? They have the mansions (The Breakers, Marble House, RoseCliff) directly off of the cliff walk. We didn’t do the tour this trip, but if you’re ever in the area I would encourage you to take it.
If you’ve got a wet-suit then you can have a lot of fun in the water at this time of year (well…actually you may need that wet suit year-round to enjoy this water). Little too cold for my tastes. The surf wasn’t very big, but I was impressed that there were surfers catching waves. The pic in the upper left corner is showing 5 surfers actually staying on their boards. Wow!! Probably about 20 surfers out there that day. The bays are very beautiful. Lots of people enjoy this part of the country with their water toys.
As usual….our non-sense turned into a competition!! Who could carry the biggest rock?
As much as we wanted to play all day, there was much work to be done by the newly licensed “Newport Maids”. Even "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” had to pull his weight.
And for your viewing pleasure….Prep Page #1…..finished! This is the only one completed. What fun, I should do more of them!
My favorite little quote from above is “If you do not let me express myself, I will go crazy and I will take all of you with me!” Can anybody guess which movie this is from? Anyone? Anyone?……yep….Beetlejuice! This is so me….it just makes me laugh!

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
