Art Preview

Lindsay said yesterday's blog was "a little intense" and she was surprised that I did not get more comments and that the comments that I did get were pleasant. That is because she knows what kind of reaction we normally get on our child raising choices. Her comment was also a reminder that most of my readers like my silly, light-weight posts rather than the serious stuff. Not to worry - I'm never very serious for very long.

Yesterday was a busy day getting ready for the up-coming art show. I framed paintings all afternoon and still have a couple to do today before the art has to be turned in after 3 PM. This is a "miniature" show with no paintings larger than 11x14. Here is a preview. Jesse's donkey painting done in acrylic. Emily's flowers done in oil. Kara will bring her cowboy pastel to art for me to frame; I will snap a photo then. Sara Ann may bring her painting, too. I think my girls did an excellent job. Just getting a painting done and ready for a show is lots of work. Tomorrow night, there will be a reception to view the art, drink wine, eat cheese, and act like adults. Excitin' times in Duncan.

In the meantime, Toby is in charge of a baby shower at his office (you heard me) and I must go and help him out today. They are having a tailgate party/baby girl shower. They are cooking burgers and drinking root beer. I think they are planning some sort of diaper throwing contest. That is what happens when you leave the planning to the men of the office.

Yesterday's blog "a little intense" maybe, but that's what I love about your blog! You say what you mean and mean what you say and you give us an opportunity to respond as we wish for the most part!

Good Luck at your art show!

I LOVE the donkey painting! It is too cute.

Toby in charge of a baby shower...I find that oddly frightening.

P.S. Dale, it's good to see you commenting again! We've missed you.

Dale, you make it sound like I might come after you if you say something out of line on my comments - you know me well:)

Becky, Toby was more in charge of cooking burgers. It was his partner in crime who wanted to have the "name that baby food" contest.

Wow, now there's an absolute non-starter. The ONLY way I'd even think about putting another morsel, however small, of baby food in my mouth is if you water-boarded me.

But a diaper throwing contest? I could get behind that! ;-)

Buck, I'm with you on the baby food contest - yuck!

On the other hand, there are some baby foods that I do like--mostly the fruits.
