Guess what I went to get yesterday from Hobby Lobby.

Have you guessed yet? I mean it would be a little obvious if you gave it a bit of thought

ok ok, so I went and got canvases. Oh yes, I went and bought more supplies. I finally am going to make more art pieces for you guys to purchase and put in your homes. Now I will say, for the time being, its going to be dirty pour paintings because they are easier with where I live. With spraypaint, I need a table, sheets, canvases, spray paint, masks, gloves, and so much more. So to make my life a tiny bit easier I am going to stick to the dirty pour until I can figure out how to do spray paint pieces where I live. It's a work in progress but it's coming along swimmingly. 

So stay tuned for more art because I am so excited to make more pieces and just be creative again.

I'm not gonna lie, this trip I took across the United States really opened my eyes to what I am missing out west. I have lived on the east side almost my entire life and it has been nice to see what I have seen. Its been a treat to see all the states that I have seen and yes there are still a few in the top northeast corner that I have never been to which I hope to visit before our big move west. For the most part, though I have seen what I have wanted to see out here. It's crazy how similar most things look on the East side of the United States and then you go west and every state is different. Different people, landscapes, cities, wildlife, and vibe. All of it changes as you go. 

Truth be told I want to still be on the road, I want to still be visiting places and I still want to be wowed every time I get up in the morning by a beautiful view outside my window. But of course, we all know that didn't happen, I had to go home. 

In two weeks I have managed to get back into the climbing gym, my dad came and helped me fix my Volkswagon, I got an online job, got Lylah spayed, and have settled into a boring routine where I oversleep and stay home all day because there isn't much to do around here. My online job doesn't start for almost a month and of course, there isn't much I can do about that, it is what I decided and I figured that maybe I could manage it by keeping things simple until it starts. Really I just need to make enough to keep my head above water which is what anybody would do if they were smart about their money. 

With this online job, after about a month, I can then move anywhere and make my own schedule so it means that the doors are open for me to leave Florida and start somewhere new. It makes the possibility to be my own boss a reality and its exciting to know that I can do more and not have to deal with somebody telling me how much I am worth, what to do, or have their eyes hovering over me while I do the job I know how to do. 

Big and exciting things are coming and I'm ready for this next chapter. 

-------------

While I am waiting for this job to start I do have some pieces for sale still. Now shipping has increased a bit (for some reason) so please be patient with me. The people at the post office said that it was because of the size of the boxes I use (for the bigger art pieces) but I know that isn't true because I have been doing this for three years and that has never been the case. So I had to increase the price a bit to help with that sudden change. But please, take a look at what I have and if you like any of them purchase them today and they will be at your house in a few day's time. I'm excited to let some of these pieces go.

I know we are all anxiously waiting for the results of the election but I do want to say something to everyone that is willing to read onwards. 

We all have different beliefs, we all have different ideas of what makes America Great, and we all have different opinions of who should lead us in the "right direction" but, despite who wins this election please keep in mind that we are human. We will vote for those who want to win because we all have different opinions, thoughts, and ideas. That's how humans work. If we didn't have imagination and free will then we would be pretty close to robots and I don't think anybody likes that idea. No matter who is leading us people will be upset, people might get violent and you may lose a friend or two at the end but no matter what happens just keep in mind that you had the right to choose and that's just how the world goes round. 

Personally, I think that no matter who is leading we are all screwed. I don't like either candidate and that's just how I feel. Now I know some people who are very hard on their opinions and won't budge but then there are others who have the same idea I do. Just watch it play out and pray that we can make it through. It sounds dumb but in my mind, that is the cards we have been dealt with. No matter who it is they will make decisions that we can't come back from. WIth the coronavirus, we already are in deeper water than we were before it happened. Were a drowning nation and it's just a matter of who can keep us afloat long enough to give us a real candidate who will do the job the right way. 

Now that may never happen in which case we will drown. Maybe not today, tomorrow, or next month, or next year, or ten years from now but somewhere we will drown. Let's just hope that we can get through this and find a solution. Please be safe and try to be kind. Not everyone thinks the same and that's ok. 

So while we wait, drink a beer, have a smoke, go for a walk, a run, or just turn everything off and sit in silence for a minute. Before you know it this too shall pass. 

Be safe out there you guys and be vigilant. Things are about to explode.

Lylah is currently recovering from her surgery. By surgery, I mean the normal no babies surgery. She got spayed about five days ago and it's been interesting to see how she is with the cone on and her limited ability to be active. When you get your pup back they tell you no roughhousing, no swimming, no running, no zoomies, none of it. The only thing they can do is walk and that's it. While you walk you can have the cone off which is nice because it gives them a break from being surrounded by plastic. Of course when we walk I try to make the walks longer so that she gets some exercise and brings down the energy. It's hard when you have a six-month-old puppy whose life consisted of walking, running, hiking, and traveling every day for 10 weeks go to doing nothing but walking for two weeks. Of course, I'm hoping that the stitches will heal quicker and we can then have the cone off and she can play but only time will tell. 

Keeping my fingers crossed that we can get this pup back to a state where she's so tired that when she gets in the crate she immediately crashes. Time of course will tell. 

But besides her surgery, I do have good news. I have a possible interview with a dog kennel place just outside of Denver Colorado. Not exactly where I wanted to go but honestly I think it's better than other options I have. I'm hopeful I can make it work out. Of course, the first real step is to get the job so keep your fingers crossed for me. I'm hoping to make leaps and bounds and move west. Colorado is beautiful and I'm excited about a possible new chapter in my life.
