So, I have a website.   “Another one?”, I hear you cry!  Well, yes… and the last one for a good while!

The Painted Treehouse

This is my online gallery and it has a page for my paintings and my photography and my other ‘stuff’.   At the moment the only link that is working is to the photography site, but please check it out and let me know what you think!   I’ve been waiting for about four years for John to build me a website and he has just been too busy, so I went here : and learned how to do it myself.

It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun and I’m no where near finished, but I am very happy that I’m doing it all ON MY OWN!  I love the flashy ‘flash’ photography sites, but you know what?  I made this one myself and it means sooo much.

Anyway.  I have a photo session with a family at the park on Friday and a bunch more to schedule in for the next couple of weeks to build up my portfolio.   I’m terrified, but watch this space for updates!


… so here we go.

What’s new?   Well, first of all, I’m going to link to John’s Blog here.   He’s started writing about the Accident and being the “Orchid Thief” etc. etc., and it’s actually very moving so I wanted to share.

Next.  Well, on Monday I finally got John to the Dentists for the first time in years.  He’s soooo scared of the place, poor thing.  Anyway, two Zanax and he had no recollection of leaving the house, let alone getting to the Dentists, which was amusing in itself!  They tried to save the tooth, but it was too far gone and he ended up getting it extracted.  Oh well… it was worth a try.

On Thursday I went back to Immigration Court and had it continued again until January 29th, 2009.   Going to be waiting on this forever, methinks.

Anyway, that’s about it really.  Life is plodding along….

I’ll update more when I can.  Oh, and the galleries to the left aren’t working right now as I quit paying the $15.00 a month to GoDaddy for the hosting, so I’ll try and sort something else out for that later.

Edit :  I had this picture linked to another blog post that I deleted…. and I love the picture so you’re getting it here instead…
