This, That and the Other Thing

Being snowed in I spent much of the time catching up on blog reading and painting. I started a couple more paintings, one I will share here. I spent nearly three hours on Sunday afternoon totally engrossed in working on it.  Today is yet another class and a chance to work more on Daddy Fishing. 

Yesterday B wasn't well so I caught up at the office invoicing and shuffling papers much of the day.  Tomorrow I need to pay a multitude of bills, mine, work and Daddy's.  I think he is getting anxious to come home and I think his niece is going to be driving home with him.  I'm excited to meet her and show her around our little town.  Daddy informed me yesterday he wants to take her to Molly's Landing for prime rib.  Unfortunately I think he has forgotten that they don't have prime rib.  I sent him the link to see for himself.  While healing at home yesterday B found a picture of Momma and sent it to me. This how Momma looked the spring before we lost her.  Again I will step onto the soap box....See the oxygen tank and hose in her nose.  Well, STOP SMOKING NOW!  She was a die hard smoker and only quit when she broke three ribs coughing a few years before this picture.  Stepping down now!

Actually this pic is of both the MIL and my momma but I cropped out the MIL. Not that I don't like her, it's just not a good pic of her. Oh well, I'll share too. I love my MIL dearly.

I know what you mean about the smoking. My mother died a few years ago gasping for air, despite oxygen, after smoking for over 50 years.

I repeat, quit smoking. Now. What awaits you is not cool.

You're very talented, I am in awe of anyone who can draw well. BTW on my blogroll is a Mr.Toast (another Brit expat now in CO) and he has an art meme called Creative Tuesday, a bit like Skywatch for people who can draw. You should check it out.

Good on you for the health message.

The new painting is great! As is the relationship you have with your MIL.

Amen on the stopping smoking. My grandmother wound up the same way as your mom with the oxygen tank. So sad.
