This is a letter that I sent to my friend Jo. Since I have been missing my blog-buddies, I thought I would post this:
I went to Wichita Falls yesterday to check on the moms and do some grocery shopping. Mostly, it was a beautiful day with temps in the low 70's. Although it was overcast, it was not windy nor was it cold. The grey sky made a nice backdrop for the fall leaves - very paintable. At 3 PM I stopped by to visit my cousin whose office is near the tamale place - where I was headed to order my Thanksgiving tamales. I came out of my cousin's office before 4 and the wind was howling and the temps were dropping. It was now 59. By the time I got my tamales and headed out of town it was 49. It was 43 when I got home. We were into the 30's as the sun went down. Crazy weather!
The mom's were good, if not a bit crazy themselves. But who am I to say anything. Most of the day my shirt was bothering my neck. I kept thinking that I would never wear that shirt again because it was so irritating. It was about 2 PM when I was at Sam's Club that I realized I had my shirt on backwards. It was so much better after I turned it around.
I wanted to go by Hobby Lobby and look at frames, but time got away from me as well as the weather turning nasty. I need to do some framing. I need to do lots of things, but with Thanksgiving coming, art will have to wait. Looks like we are gonna have a house full. My brother called me on Wed to ask if I was getting things ready. I told him, "Na. I am waiting until next week. Then I will work like crazy to get it all done.
Forever the procrastinator,
