It was kind of a strange morning. I woke up groggy – probably because we did not get to bed until 10:30 last night. I know, I know, but I am a country girl who gets up at 5:30, and 5:30 came early today. Things were going as usual at first. I made my way to my recliner, Toby handed me my coffee, and we sat there talking and waking up. The dog went out; the cat came in. Suddenly, Toby threw his coffee. It went all over the baby blanket I am crocheting for a young friend. It was the third time something had been spilled on my blanket. Toby looked horrified but claimed it was the cat’s fault. I have my doubts.
After my rude awakening, it started snowing. This photo was taken about 30 minutes ago. It is messing up my art day with my girls. I called art girls to say that they could come paint if they wanted, but to be careful on the roads – chances are that they will not come. Maybe I will paint all by myself. I’m tired of snow and muck and cold. Here is another photo from the "Big Freeze" – Zoe dog jumping over the rope pulling the sled. The dogs seemed to love playing in the snow. If I wanted to play in the snow, I would move back to NM.
Here is my painting that I started last week and finished yesterday with the Painted Ladies. Another people painting. I may have posted this quad-painting last fall, but here it is matted. I painted the third panel. After getting it all matted, I realized that I had used the wrong side of the mat board, and will have to redo the whole thing. Oh well.
