|My first painting, "Fan In Window"|
This past weekend I took several of my paintings to the cabin because I'm going to have a Screened Porch Art Show and Sale on Saturday, this next weekend. We hosted a dinner Friday night and I knew that several of the people attending would not be there on Saturday. It was a good call because I sold three of my paintings right off the bat. Honestly why create all these paintings if they are going to sit in a pile and never hang anywhere. I want, I NEED to sell them to make space so I can create more, and I need some validation that I'm doing my best and entering into the show and competitions is giving me that boost I need.
Oh, maybe this is a useless rant, I don't know. I'm just feeling very down about it all and that is not good for me to be creating art.

A dieting we will go. Yes, I am still low carb-ing it and finally the scale is moving in the right direction after being quite stuck. I'm down 14 pounds now and I can feel it and you can physically see it on me. I think spring, warmer weather and better veggies are helping me. The Hubby is eating pretty much everything I'm eating now and that does help. I don't deny myself though. The other night I went out with my book club and I was good for dinner of salmon, grilled veggies and a salad, BUT I did indulge in a dessert. That's okay and the next morning is when the scale shifted. I'm totally good with that.
Thursday night I didn't want to order in or go out which is our usual Thursday night thing but instead fixed a large omelet to share with spinach, cheese and some leftover bruschetta over the top. It was so tasty and he loved it.
Friday evening at the cabin we hosted a dinner for 12 on the porch with grilled beef tenderloins. Everyone brought a veggie, appetizer, salad or dessert to share. It was fantastic and feels like getting back to the good times again. We had cocktails, we girls call it "Day-Drinking" at 4:30 and a couple of the guys joined us. Then the crowd started showing up and the guys decided to sit around the unlit firepit in the yard for cigar smoking and we girls enjoyed the porch. Dinner was served and the beef was devoured. After a quick dessert (I did not eat) of cheesecake the cigar crew went to P&T's covered porch because a light rain had begun to fall. Our porch is the best for rain gatherings. We girls and a guy stayed put and enjoyed the rain and music and lots and lots of laughter. I so love my friends there and our cabin.

The creek is flooding again a bit because of all the recent rains. Sand Bass runs are affected yet again this year making the act of catching them really hard. Our freezer is empty of fish so far.
