Weekend Recap

450 posts in a little over a year. Cool huh? Big celebrations coming for the 500th post I promise.

So yesterday I was denied my Sunday nap and that is such a big deal because literally it affects my whole week. Anyway, after realizing I wasn't going to be able to take a nap because G was way to busy to allow it, I set the jumper up for her and then like any grown up I pouted. I know I know, real mature.

Finally I got a grip and set my oil paints up outside in the wonderfully cool afternoon and painted for about 2 hours. G was fascinated by the whole thing. She kept telling me what colors to use and to color in the lines. She was adamant that I do it her way. She wanted to help me anyway she could. Finally a neighbor came over and took her for a walk. The best part of that was she actually went with this neighbor whom she really just met but whom I have known all my life.

Back to the paintings: I added touches on one,

added some color to another and started a brand new one, got the first layer on. Of course now in the pic the moon is a bit lopsided on the one.

I am trying to be creative because this maybe everyone's Christmas gift. I need to get some smaller canvasses though so the pics. won't take as long.

And I found a new use for the piano, holding paintings while they dry!
