Cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner, to having a good Christmas, and saying goodbye to 2021. Here’s to a fresh, new, start for 2022 with cleaning up my website, ready to share my Etsy shop, and new blog posts. In spite of not posting for a little while, here’s a small paragraph as to what’s been going on in my life.
My life has been good, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned is life is precious and never take anything for granted. Balancing life as an artist and taking care of my parents sums up the story of my life. Grateful for having good parents, it’s my turn to help out. I’ve had my agitated moments and we all do with taking care of them and how we agree on some things and not so well on others. Mom and dad of course are grateful for my help, but they wish I had a better life.
Taking road trips to the doctor’s office, I’ve been either bringing a small sketchbook, yarn and a crochet hook, or using my i-phone to research ideas for drawing, sketches, and art. Not able to show much right now with a life full of chaos, I’m showing pictures that I take when I walk my Ginger (my dog) around the block. I also believe that photography is a part of art as well.
In spite of working on new projects mostly at the doctors office with taking care of my parents, coming up with new project ideas and recipes at home autumn 2021 has been going by so fast.
With the holidays approaching quick, I’m happy to say that I’m preparing my first Thanksgiving dinner for me and my parents. Looking forward to sharing some photos and recipes with you all.
With day to day activities, one of my favorite things to do with some spare time is to walk my dog Ginger around the block. Here are some photos from my album “walking”.
Walking around the block in my neighborhood at home, I’ve been finding lots of interesting things. Today’s walk, look at what I discovered. Looks like a leaf with legs and eyes lol, Hello Praying Mantis. #prayingmantis #walking #lmprock #ramblingsaboutartandlife
Hello September 2021, summer was filled with new ideas, dreams, and some goals reached. Thinking about a hobby I like and turning it into a side job for the summer. Here’s some of the things I did with the summer. Dreaming of a dream garden in the backyard at home in Upstate New York, here’s the beginning of the garden in the Prock family.
Driving to Gloversville to work at The Micropolis on Monday August 23rd, 2021, this is one of my favorite buildings to drive by when heading into Montgomery County. An old building with a broken window or two, four smoke stacks, by the train tracks, and in front of the water. Driving into Amsterdam, it’s hard to take a clear picture, but driving back from Gloversville, it’s easier.
Summer 2021 has been a world full of crazy, some good days, and trying to reach some goals. View my summer in the next few days.
Nature at it’s best. Rose petals from the mailbox with grass and fresh mulch.
Today for the first time since COVID-19 and being a caretaker for my parents I went back up to The Micropolis for the first time. It was nice to see everyone, get out of the house, and enjoying the drive through the country and seeing nature. Micropolis did something a little different for the art gallery, Instead of having one featured artist, they decided to have artists-students from Gloversville High School. What a beautiful way to help young artists get started and show the amazing talents they have. Below is these talented students.
Well the warm weather is definitely here in upstate New York along with the colors, rain showers and thunderstorms. Here some flowers and clouds I grabbed a quick snapshot of at home and doing errands on Friday.

Thinking of books for drawing ideas, look at what I stumbled upon. Bought this for mom and dad a couple of years ago. #caffelena #lmprock #ramblingaboutartandlife #saratogasprings
Nothing like bringing your i-phone everywhere you go to capture some colorful moments around, even if it’s at your house. Here’s some flowers from all around the front and backyard of my parents house.
