Waitin' On Wheels

I always try to be proactive. Whenever I do this, I need to be ready for anything. Here I sit on a glorious friday morning waiting for new replacement wheels for my wheelchair. I figured since the order for my new chair has been screwed up twice now, I should keep my current chair operating to the best of its abilities. I was told that the repair dude would be here at 9am and I was his 1st stop. It's 10:30 and he just got here. So, I can finally get out of bed to start my day! Other than waiting on people, things are going well lately. Yesterday it was Peace Week at the school that I visit. One of the activities included the kids coloring some pages that I designed! I really enjoyed watching the kids diligently coloring and then handing the pages over to me. It was just a happy feeling. May you all find PEACE and many blessings in your world.

Going back for another "Taste."

About a year ago, I was given the chance to display my little paintings in a local Taste of Scandinavia restaurant. They feature one artist each month. I was having kind of a low energy day today when out of the blue, the manager called me to see if I would like to display and sell some more during the month of May. This opportunity has given me a real confidence boost and I am ready to accept the challenge of getting 30 pieces ready to go for May 2nd! I do have 15 or so ready, but am also going to tackle some fresh and new pieces. I will post some more info. closer to the start of the display. #It'sBigForME!

Awesome Field Trip

I had a wide open day today and Nurse Jen suggested Silverwood Park which is near her home in Columbia Heights. We loaded up the pup and headed over. I had been by it several times but didn't expect it to be quite as new and modern as it was. There are accessible docks! I rolled to the end of a floating one and it was just so refreshing to be out a little ways on the sparkling water! On this particular dock, there were no guard rails, so Jen freaked out and I had to back up very slowly. Adrenaline rush for me, her, not so much! I will definitely go back to be near the water. It's very rare to find such a park with so much accessibility. Then we stopped at Mike's Discount Foods in friendly Fridley. I'm sure I will go back there also as they have really low prices on certain produce like $1.29 for a 5 pound bag of green giant potatoes and an assortment pack of mini bell peppers for $1.49. I can tell it may be a hit or miss type of grocery store, but it was just fun to be somewhere new. Here's to a lively springtime and checking out new places! I love it.
