The past month and a half have flown by and I have been so busy that I have been meeting myself coming and going.
The middle of December we moved into our house with more boxes than I ever dreamed possible. Then Christmas sneaked up on me and we celebrated with our boys who came and went the weeks before and after Christmas. In between visits I unpacked and STILL have boxes to unpack!
Well, I must admit that my art room looks a whole lot better than the picture above, and the picture on the easel is framed and mailed, but there are still a few boxes left!
The grandchildren came and helped me christen the art room.
Miss Ella Bella wanted to have a canvas and use the easel!
Son #2’s wife and children did not mind working on the floor. Hey gang, come back because I have a table now!!
Then we went to southern California and spent ten sunny days while our area had drizzle and rain. It was green and beautiful while we were there!
And I have drawn off the above picture (the view from our room at the resort where we stayed) for a new painting. I am working on a rose painting (below) from one of the half a zillion pictures I took in the beautiful rose garden where we stayed! Still some work to do on that painting!!
And now we have settled in for the WINTER! It is a HIGH of 25 today and has not been above freezing for the second day in a row! It has been unusually cold for us but temperatures are due to be back in the 60s in a couple of days. However, we hope to see the rare sight of a few snowflakes this evening!
