If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

Yesterday was another beautiful (yet freezing) sunny day so we headed down the lake to Rapperswil. It was a cute little town. We took a picnic and sat along the lake. While we were exploring the town lots of people were driving around honking their horns and waving the Albanian flag celebrating the independence of Kosovo. They were all over Zürich also.

Hello all. I have finally created a blog of my art (Jared helped with the sweet layout.) I'll try to update it often with the paintings I've created so far however unfortunately I haven't really painted much since we moved to Switzerland. However, I have many paintings already composed in my head.
here's the link:

Yesterday Jared, I and some friends from the ward headed to Flumser Berg to ski. It was a beautiful day. No fresh snow for a week but it was fun to cruise down the groomed slopes. Except for the super steep black diamonds that were pure ice. My heart was pounding since this was only my second time on the slopes this season. I survived though. That's what you get when you do with boys and want to keep up.
To get to the mountain you have to go up this steep gondola. It brought back memories of this summer when we were stuck on the Gondola in a downpour and surrounded by a thunder storm.
Here's a little town across the lake only accessible by boats.

...I accidentally pulled the box upside down and the cheerios went everywhere. Normally this would not be an issue, just scoop them up and put them back into the box, right? Wrong, if you've seen our floor lately that ended up not happening.
So I sadly:( swept them up along with all of the other gunk on the floor because I hate sweeping (which I actually found quite soothing this time and should do more often) and I've been talking about needing to mop for a few weeks now (they don't have carpets in Switzerland.) What a clumsy waste of a good thing.

Last Wednesday Jared and I hopped on a night train to celebrate my birthday in Venice for the weekend. I couldn't get over the colors of the buildings and have decided the colors for the rooms in our future home. I found some perfect yellows. Mustard yellow mixed with yellow ochre is something I'm going to try soon in a painting.
It was 50° weather (very warm to us) with a bright blue sky that didn't reveal a cloud the entire time we were there.
We kissed on a Gondola ride, shuffled through confetti leftover from Carnivale the week before, laid in the sun and read, ate delicious food and treats including gelato, searched for the building that was in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," (is this it? I dunno just take a picture just in case) and bought some Murano glass. Jared ran around the city in the morning while I slept in. Italians have a lot to say and are very boisterous about it. They are just happy people with beautiful woman. It was fun to be in such a friendly environment.
We are smiling because gelato is in our tummy's. (Check out how curly my hair was, Venice baby, Venice.)
Jared, "Alice you've taken a photo of this yellow building before," me, "No I haven't, it's a different yellow." (The sky was really that blue.)
Can someone say heaven? These shoes were handmade by the owner of the shop who we met. You can see that it has been featured in several magazines.
