I've sat down to try and write this blog post a few times but life has been so busy, that has not happened. Of course some of my time has been spent with Snicklefritz and that's ALWAYS a joy.
May have to paint this little princess!
Ever on the hunt for the next painting...
This is a guy I went to high school with, Matt. He was Mr. Football in high school (45 years ago) but now is a rancher/cowboy, living his life's dream. It has been a hard life for him but he got to fulfill that dream. The last time he was in town I snapped this wonderful photo of him with the plan to paint. Since I'm wanting to step off more into the portrait world, well, here we go.
Today, I plan on adding to it, especially his mustache!
In the meantime we had a bit of snow a few weeks ago and Mrs. Robin was huddled outside the bathroom window trying to keep warm.
I think this might be a nice painting...
Thanksgiving was wonderful with a houseful of about 26 family and friends. I cooked 33 pounds of turkey and it was quite yummy but I knew that the next day was looming. Yes, it was prep time for our HUGE Christmas party.
Every few years we host a gigantic Christmas party and The Hubby wanted to do it this year. Okay. Anyway, with Thanksgiving so quick and December right there too, I just flat forgot to order the invitations and had to do a Facebook invite. I did order the invites but stupid me reordered from a place that I had not used in 12 years, a house ago and good grief, the invites went to our old house. I wasn't able to get hold of the people there until THEY contacted me this week. I had to reorder them. All's good, and we will have about 75 people here on Saturday night.
Food is ordered and will be delivered. We hire wait staff, which I found out a few years ago is the ONLY way to host such a party!
Christmas decorations went up, presents have been wrapped, the table has been set up...PARTY ON DUDE!
(Oh, and I tweeked my back yesterday...yes, that may be a problem!)
