Happy Memorial Day

Good Memorial Day morning all!  Thought I would drop in to say hello.  Lots of stuff going on lately.  Of course, Mother's Day has passed and I kind of let it slide by here.  I just didn't want to go there but we did celebrate at the mother-in-law's and it was B's first one.

Life has been a lot of work at the office and not much painting except I did piddle around with a bit of watercolor paper and Sharpie to create a small painting that I posted on Facebook and immediately sold!
How exciting is that!  I was thrilled.  The first picture at the top I took this weekend and I can't decide if I just want to frame it or paint it,  I may just do both.  I love it.  I took it on Harrie's deck from a pot she had planted.  Stunning flowers.  

This next weekend we are hosting a small impromptu family reunion on my Dad's side at the cabin.  I'm not sure if I excited about it at all but I am doing something when no one else but my aunt would do.  I'm getting my turn out of the way.  It will be a challenge because one of he sister's (my aunt) has a jerk of a husband that NO ONE likes and they haven't been to a family function for quite some time because the last one he attended he called one of the sisters a whore, not once but three times and thought it was Ha-Ha funny.  NOT FUNNY!  When it was brought up to the sister/aunt that it was not funny or appropriate they quit coming to any family function, until now.  Not sure how I feel about them attending the one I'm throwing but we will see.  It's just an afternoon of "fun" and then they go home and we go to a fish fry at another cabin!!!!!!!
Baby girl Rio is changing and growing by leaps and bounds.  Two teeth, foods, crawling and just this weekend she pulled herself up in her crib to stand for a full 5 minutes.  Oh gosh, they grow so very quickly.  She will be 8 months old on June 1.  Where does the time go.  She had her first zoo outing yesterday and I am curious how she enjoyed it.  They have a lot more first to come with this precious little package.

"precious little package" - indeed - she is a cutie pie :)

Wow. Just WoW. About the whore comment. So not funny and yet I'm sure he thinks he is the life of the party.
