Another Invitation for You

I was intrigued by the responses to Mary's post revealing blogger "habitats." It was fun for me to get a tiny glimpse into other people's lives.

I'm going to digress a bit here as to work my way towards your invitation.....I worked at an art gallery/custom picture framing studio from 2000 to 2003. Because of my employee discount and bonuses at that job, I have lots of framed art on my walls, in every room (including bathrooms). Because I feel that art is such an important part of my life, I would like to invite you to share your favorite piece of art.

Here are some guidelines:

1) It can be any type of art: a framed print, a quilt made by your great-grandmother, your child's glittery, painted macaroni poster from kindergarten, a picture you painted, an outdoor sculpture in your garden. It just has to be your one favorite piece.

2) Tell me the story about why it's your favorite or what special meaning the art has for you.

3) Please send your photos and stories to me by June 16th at my e-mail address: rjknits at msn dot com

In celebration of the summer solstice, I will post your responses on my June 21st blog entry.

I look forward to hearing from you!

It's a lovely summer-like afternoon (with no wind, for once) and when I went outside to light the grill my motorcycle was sitting forlornly in the garage because Rick had taken his out for a ride while I'm supposed to be making supper (instead of blogging).

I could just hear my bike crying to me, "Ruthie, don't you love me anymore? We haven't been anywhere together for almost 2 weeks. Maybe we could go the A & W for an ice cream cone after supper?"

It's going to be a beautiful evening, perfect for a trip to the A & W. I do love my bike and will try to make it happy.

I'm game! I just scribbled a note to myself. Great idea, Ruthie!

You Go like the wind on that bike. Enjoy the night.

I will have to put some thought to the idea.

It was a great ride. Saw deer in the fields, but none ran out in front of us, so a safe arrival back home (I always worry about those deer).

Nice ride!
