Rainy weekend

Traveled again to the cabin for a kind of rainy time but you know it was just fine.  We got to take our new little Clayton and he had great fun, except for the ride there.  The poor little guy gets car sick.  In fact, he has thrown-up quite a bit since we have gotten him.  I am going to take him to the vet on Wednesday for shots and nail trim and whatever else he needs and while I'm there I will have a discussion about it there.  I took him for a walk on Saturday before the rains began but opted to stay in most of the time.  We had the neighbors over for dinner, a quiet time of 6 of us.  I fixed a huge pot of veggie stew (check out the food blog) and then made thick grilled cheese sandwiches on Texas toast to go with it.  It was a perfect rainy day meal to share with good friends.

I took a few pics this weekend in hopes of finding a new inspiration to paint.  Some were a little blurry and dark but I just need a vision to paint.  Check it out.

Yes wasn't it a lovely weekend weather wise and looking Fall'ish all week too.

I like that top photo for a painting Carla.

you know me, I'm a sucker for bottles - I think that would be a beautiful painting.

sounds like a good weekend - hope the puppy feels better soon.

I liked all the photos...
At least you have the excitement of hanging out at the cabin, regardless of the weather, it's a change of scenery.
Lucky you !
