We saw Lindz and Shay last night at church. It was Lindz 26th birthday. Shay stood up and spoke some wonderful words of blessings on his bride – setting a pretty high standard for other men. Happy birthday, Lindz – you are blessed. I am reminded of last year while picking out your wedding dress: It had been a long hot day, but a fun one. Lindz was trying on dresses at a place where the electricity was off – no air conditioner and few lights. Moe, the little European dress designer, let you buy the most beautiful, perfect dress – one of his originals – for about $200. Then he said something like this, "It is said that if a person is obedient to their parents, they will be blessed. You must be a very good girl." Even Moe knew you were blessed. I love this photo of Lindz trying on dresses and Jesse sitting at her feet. Jesse took some photos that day too, and had a rather different perspective.

Green with Envy
The Painted Ladies were at my house yesterday. I cooked some sort of Italian orzo/shrimp dish and made a mango cheesecake from a mix bought at Distinctive Décor, which is an online kitchen store, but has their home store/warehouse in Duncan. The Ladies finished the watercolor video that we started last week. The lesson was a wet on wet technique depicting a foggy hillside. I hesitate to show you my finished painting, because I really don’t like it. Green is such a difficult color, and I mucked it up. After lunch we spent some time in my garden picking okra, black-eyed peas, and peppers. Then we painted my garden peppers on little cards. My two paintings are on the far left. Yep, I paint rather fast and did two to their one.
