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.
