PYSANKY the colourful art of decorating Easter Eggs

this beautifully decorated egg came from the Ukraine when my daughter went over there a couple of years ago for a running marathon! because of these spectacularly decorated eggs i became inspired to try it. so i bought a kit and proceeded to teach myself and my kids to create a work of art. hence the result of that.

these were done years ago when my children were small. so i got out the kit once more this year and had three of my four grandchildren over this weekend and taught them this art.

and this is their creations

two on the left was done by my oldest grandson, the next one by my 7yr old grandson ( he wanted to make fire) and i think he managed that nicely and the last one by my grand daughter. they enjoyed learning the art and enjoyed themselves a great deal and so did i! :)

Thoughts of the day

back in 2010 i decided to blog. i was very much excited about it and it was going so well i decided to start a second blog and it started to go pretty good but then life began to get very hectic. I could not focus on anything but my life and all it's needs so i did not have the time to pursue the commitment of keeping up with two blogs so i took a break. My last child graduated and finally moved out this year. So i'm an empty nester now. Now I have time to reconnect with my blogging world.

Well i think i'm going to stick with the random thoughts and posts for this blog. I will most likely post pictures of my creations with food in which i love to photograph, possibly my big back yard and other interests of mine.
This is chicken soup. it is something different every time i make it but one thing for certain it always has chicken in it!

Anyways...while on my walk today i was thinking about my autobiography. Someone said to me the other day...'why would i write an autobiography?' after i had suggested to her she should write hers. 
I said, so your kids can know you a bit more after all you got the privilege to know them since they were born wouldn't you want them to know you when you were born?' 

well...i'm starting mine. I have 55 years of memories and experiences to record. My life wasn't exciting by no means but it is mine!  until next time! :)
