A Not So Daily Dose of Daisy
Master of living a random, unpredictable life.

A couple of days ago Lily asked if she could have a friend over after school. Of course I said she could. Then the next day she asked if it could be two friends. I am easy so I said yes. Well then the day before I was informed that it was going to be […]


I was surfing around on the internet the other day when I ran into a picture of something that gave me a really good idea. I wish I had saved a copy of it but I didn’t. I did however save the idea in my mind. This is what we did. Lily stood out in […]

I have told you before that I am constantly looking for things to keep Lily busy. If you have spent any time with her you know that busy Lily = awesome Lily. If she gets bored she is kinda like me… she gets hard to deal with. There are a million things you can do […]


Today I started my first painting in my acrylic painting class. In a perfect world my painting will look almost exactly like the photo that I showed you the other day. I learned how to prepare the canvas and how to draw the guiding lines on our canvas. Can you see it coming to life […]

I sent an email to the Acrylics Painting instructor this morning with 5 photos in it. She told us last week that she would pick which photo I will start to paint on canvas this week. The next class is on Wednesday morning and I couldn’t be more excited! I sent this one that I […]


I had my first Acrylic Painting class today. I signed up for this one because again it is something that I know very little about, but want to know more. What I didn’t realize when I signed up for the 6 week class was that I would spend more on supplies than on the actual […]


Even though Lily is only in 3rd grade she still comes home with homework every single day. It is always math and reading. We have the perfect after school routine. I pick her up from school. And when we get home we relax a bit then when I am ready to start cooking dinner it […]


This afternoon as I was about to leave to run errands the door bell rang. Once I got to the door I could see a UPS truck. I opened up the front door and this is what I saw. I also saw the UPS guy getting back into his truck. When Lily and I were […]


My hair is crazy right now. Most of the semi-permanent color has washed out and I need to do something about it. I mean look at this stuff, it’s crazy! Pretty soon I will be over the color stage and back to brown… but today is not that day.   Here is what I need to use […]


I wear flip flops every single day. Seriously EVERY single day. I always slip on my flip flops before I leave for work in the morning and I change info a pair of heels once I get to my desk at work. Then when I leave for the day I put my flip flops back […]


Since it is to early to carve them Lily, Adeline and I painted pumpkins today. Here is Lily working on her pumpkin. Adeline’s pumpkin. And my pumpkin!


Amanda spotted a rainbow in our backyard tonight! I have prepared myself to stop smoking for awhile now. Being so sick earlier this week I realized on Tuesday that I had not smoked in two days. I hear that the first few days are the hardest. I only had one breakdown today and when it was […]

JP has opened up a new door for me into the world of art. I have always had a few paintings on the wall but never like this. For me it use to go something like … you grab a hammer and some nails,  you put a painting on the nail…  check that its straight… and never […]
