Just a quick funny

This is what my kids were doing tonight while I was off getting a massage.

I lifted this from Nicole. I'm not sure what to make of the results, but the funny thing is I don't like this painting pictured here!

Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful

13 Islamic, -1 Impressionist, -3 Ukiyo-e, 3 Cubist, 1 Abstract and -13 Renaissance!

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.

People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.

Behind Once Again

In my defense, it has been a busy month. This whole job thing really cuts into the free time! Who was it that was complaining they were bored now that all the kids are in school all day? It couldn't have been me. I have so much I have been wanting to blog about lately but haven't had a chance to get to it so here comes a big power blog in which mosaics are my friend.
Little A had a field trip to the pumpkin patch that I had the pleasure of joining him on. I was thrilled to see several hand knits make their appearance to warm the heads of these 1st graders. Once I pointed them out little A warmed to the idea of wearing his.
Then Halloween crept up on us. I forgot how much I really don't like carving pumpkins. I like it for a little bit but man it seems to take forever and eww the guts are so slimy! However the pumpkin patch does make for some great pictures.

Halloween weekend we headed to Dallas. One of A's clients gave us tickets to the Dickies 500. While there we spent time with my friend Kandi and her adorable family. The kids were so cute in their costumes, Jordan makes an awfully sweet, I mean terrifying mummy, and Drew was a great Indy. We also visited the Dallas World Aquarium which was first rate, the Stockyards in Ft. Worth and of course the big race. It was so nice to have four days away from it all.
Back at home all the work, chores and running around is still here waiting for me. Another month has flown by and the holidays are just around the corner. Hopefully I will blog again much sooner as I have an exciting new project in the works.
