Happy Friday 13th!!!

HAPPY FRIDAY 13th!!! To those of you who worry about this date I wish you much love and protection, and may all your mishaps be easily repairable :D XXX

This is page 19 of the art journal I am working on with Darcy at 52 pages for 2011, and I can't say enough about how much I am enjoying this exercise :D
This weeks word was DESCRIBE, and the task was to choose just 5 words to describe yourself, and 5 words to describe the most important person in your life.
Choosing the person was easy, my hubby of 25 years(together as a couple for 29 years), but just 5 words! That was the tricky part.

I gave us 4 individual descriptive words each(practically perfect I'm counting as 1, as in Mary Poppins), but the 5th word is counted for both, as together we are STRONG. 2 halves of the whole, ying and yang etc. We are total opposites, which means we are able to cope with just about anything life throws at us, cool :D
Doing this page reminded me of a day in school, many many years ago. When asked to describe something in 1 word I said it was NICE. My english teacher derided me saying "couldn't I think of a better word than that ie; SPECTACULAR or AMAZING or ELECTRIFYING?" I replied that "yes, I did know those words, but the situation we were describing was just NICE, there is nothing wrong with the word NICE. I like NICE !" When asked on their opinion my classmates said the word NICE was how they would describe me, not PRETTY, ATHLETIC or anything like that, just NICE, and they liked me that way :D
So I've lived my life trying to be NICE :D (but just sometimes mwahahahahaha..........)
