Happy Things: Sunday Stills

Happy Things


Working in my art studio makes me happy, although I haven’t done so for almost a year.  I wonder why?  Too caught up in blogging, I fear.  I need to consider that question in the upcoming months.

      Yes. I mixed the color! I mixed all the colors of my house as I couldn’t find the exact ones i wanted. I’ve never gotten tired of the yellow/goldish/orange color

        You mentioned being a counselor at the Methodist Camp. That place had quite a history as one of the wildest dance halls in the county at one time. We lived a half miles from there, this was during the Second World War, everybody at the dance hall seemed to be fighting all the time. The owners daughter took care of us kids. The place was sold to the Methodist Church in the late 40s I believe, so they became the only church in the area with a beer license. You wouldn’t know the place now there must’ve been several million dollars spent there almost everything is new except the original hall where they danced and had meetings in later years.

        I seem to be finding my way around this blog place I little better but have much to learn getting my site set up right.

          Is it still owned by the church and is there still a summer camp there? Did you know Roger Thomas–the methodist minister in Arlington, I believe, or his son John? I always had a bit of a crush on John, whose cousins lived on a farm near Murdo and who came to our church. A fun, rowdy bunch.

      Yes, although it is too tiny (the studio) to entertain many at once. A couple of times a year I have friends over for art activities and I just bring supplies and tools up to the main house. I had dreams once of extending my studio into my spare lot next door, but suddenly it just seemed like too much planning and hard work…I’d rather play with the art itself than in expansion. These are the days to be simplifying rather than complicating.
