A CHOICE...I PICKED MY HUSBAND

Today was the first day in awhile I could have done ANYTHING I wanted...no deadlines...no commissions (although I'm VERY grateful I had them...)...just freedom...and my husband asked if I wanted to go on a hike.  At first I said I wanted to play with art...do something with encaustic...but I thought about it...and he won...He's so cute...how could he NOT win!

So, we went on a hike above the house.  I didn't think it through very clearly as it was in the upper 90's and hot even up where we live...and, even though he said most of it would be in the shade I knew better...I mean, I've been on this hike before...ha...but I went anyway... I thought I'd share some pics...hopefully you will see something that inspires you in some way...or tickles you...:)

The first was this green butterfly I caught on this flower...I always forget what they are called...
oops...the clouds are building...
I LOVE, LOVE watching pine cones grow up!!
ooohhh...we are getting higher up...
Ok, at first this pic may seem so sweet...BUT, I caution you...we were at the top and all of a sudden we noticed that there were a gazillion lady bugs swarming around...and one landed on my leg and BIT me...YES, they BITE...whew...I just barely got out of there with my life!!
At the top it is so cool...on one side you see Denver...and on the other...
Yep...Mt. Evans!
For those of you who don't know...we mountain folk like to stack rocks and such for the next person to come along and add something...can you guess what I added...OH YES...I KNOW...obviously it is the last thing...but...a pine cone...IS THAT NOT ME???
I love oak leaves...I'm seeing a painting...
Guess who was following us down...yep...
PS...these were the clouds the night before...I just had to slip them in...

SO, the moral of the story is...if you have a choice...Pick you love...they deserve it...and you will feel happier...I can always paint tomorrow!!

HAPPY CREATING!

Good message and beautiful photos (as always). Poor Michael. He gets the worst of me, it seems. And that is a tough row to hoe.

I had no idea you could see Denver from the top of your mountain! What an amazing view from both sides. Since I can't go to the mountains, I'm glad I got to see yours!
