It has been a good weekend, so far.
That sounds kind of ominous, doesn't it?
But, it has been good up to this point.
|Gizmo sleeping with the work that is going away to be photographed by Bob Dawson.|
I gathered up my "African Animal Series" and got them ready for photos. I am asking Bob Dawson to photograph them so that they can be used to make prints from.
I left the house with seven canvases and a handful of mail.
Are we gonna talk about the price of gas? OMG, I noticed on my trip out this morning to run my errands. Who makes the rules here? It is just crazy.
End of rant...for the moment...maybe...today.
|Don't get me started...|
|I could SWEAR that this is Toni Miller...I couldn't catch up with her in the store.|
I stopped at my third home away from home to get odorless paint thinner. I had already been to the grocery (my second home away from home). I carried in my hamburger into Hobby Lobby to keep it cool. I felt really silly carrying around burger in the craft store, but guess what? I was not the only one. :)
Back home again to paint and make some lunch. Here's a photo of the last painting in the "African" series in progress.
I got to spend some time with my kids & grand-kids today. Al & I took Mary, Leia & Asher out for some much needed ice cream. We all really enjoyed the time out.

We had a wonderful time.
After some time at Grandpa & Grandma's house, Leia is ready to go home. The long discussion over which color popsicle she would accept will live in my mind for a long time. It is amazing how argumentative a three year old can be. She was definitely on a mission. I must have pulled a dozen popsicles out the the freezer before I found the right one.
BECAUSE there are times when only a purple popsicle will do.
Thank you GOD for letting there be a purple popsicle in that freezer.
Thank you, indeed.
