Are you ever afraid of the dark?


Good Morning everyone, I'm up early today! I been going to bed late and getting up late. I think I had enough of that. It does feel good to be up early in the morning. Sometimes when I get up late I feel like crap and that is because when I sleep late and get up early feeling heavy and in need of more sleep. Now,  I do do love working when everyone is sound asleep and the town is quiet and all I hear is my rooster and a raccoon shuffling through the the bushes to find something to eat. One night a raccoon ate one of the chickens because George forgot to close the coop. I was up that night and the sound was horrible and eerie. I new something wrong was happening. So I ran out side in the dark with flash light and the raccoon ran off but chicken was dead with a broken neck and another chicken was missing.  I cried and felt so sad for it. You know I'm afraid of the dark. Always have been afraid of the dark since I was a little girl. I remember Sammy my cat went off one night for a three hours. I was beginning to panic and so I went out there in the woods to find him in the dark calling him, it was 1am in the morning. I spend 20minutes calling my cat. I realized I wasn't afraid of the dark anymore that night. I did not care, all I cared about was finding Sammy and hoping he was okay. Suddenly I heard a meow and felt this white thing following me, it was Sammy Meowing to me, saying mom I'm here, I'm okay. I looked at him and said you scared me to death I told him. It is time to go home. And while I was heading home I began to feel frighten of the dark again. I heard a thing going through the grass and I ran with Sammy. I'm a wuss, I know! But when it comes to my animals, I'm like a big fearless lioness taking care and protecting her cubs and so the dark is not an issue anymore when I'm out looking for my babies I love!

Today it's Friday and it's art shopping day for me. I need watercolor paper badly. I usually stock up on watercolor but it's gone used all my watercolor paper. So Today is the day, an art supply spree day for goodies and maybe going to a tag sale!
Yesterday I spend my day creating these beautiful little pieces that are done in acrylic and charcoal on Vincent Rossini watercolor cold press 140lb paper  5" X 5" and it's protected with fixative. I decided that I will stitch these beauties on canvas fabric.
