Picasso Style Challenge-

Posted on: March 22, 2015

Today’s Inspiration is :

-"Young Girl Reading a Book on the Beach"  Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)  I wish I could even begin to incorporate this technique into my own.  It's been done by thousands, but I would still love it.  Maybe I'll try.

“Young Girl Reading a Book on the Beach”

When I looked at this one,

my first instincts were to create a look with grey and a denim jacket..

Linking up with Visible Monday, Go See What other  wonderful bloggers are up to…

I liked the muted shades in this shirt as yet another reflection 

of Picasso’s inspiration.

I love this classic denim jacket in the light wash , which I thrifted.

In fact, both of my denim jackets are thrifted….

Looking forward to losing a few more pounds and feeling better in these pants…

Well, my Dear Readers, I have lost a total of 7lbs these last two weeks and am definitely motivated bythat success to continue to my ultimate goal of losing another 20 to get below what I was when I stopped Weight Watchers…It’s only 5 lbs less, but I think I will be much happier to get there to 135 as my goal…The 140 never felt right to me… I just am so frustrated that I let myself gain so much back…I am determined to reach my goal of getting this under control by my 50th birthday in September and to never let it get out of control again…Maintenance really is the hardest part of the journey and I am very determined… Anyone who knows me will agree that I will win this battle once I put my mind to it.

Gratitude

 I am grateful for a second week of weight loss success…

I am grateful for a weekend of putting away my heavy coats and taking out and organizing my Spring/Summer items.

I am grateful for the fun of discovering St. Patrick’s Day hats for clearance at my grocery store, where I bought silly hats for the guys and a clover ball gap for me to wear, not just in March…

I am grateful for Spring temperatures and Sunshine.  

I am grateful for conversation with my daughter and hearing my stressed out Grad Student, planning to bake a cake from a partner for her group project since they had to schedule on her birthday to work on the project.. Baking is something my daughter loves to do and I know it will make for a break in her stressful schedule..
