INCREDIBLY THOUGHTFUL PEOPLE &
Wednesday Paint Class ~

Let me first start by saying a HUGE thank you to Sandi over at the Whistlestop Cafe for sending me these fabulous items. Sandi was one of my blogiversary winners and I sent her the ROOSTER painting. Her sending me thankyou gifts was completely unnecessary and just goes to show the generosity of these people in BLOGLAND that I've have met.
I'm making the Apple Crisp today for dessert after dinner ~ which might be from a recipe in the book ~ have to see if I have the ingredients. (Don't know how many ww points that will be yet) but am going to treat myself to a small bowl of it.
You can visit their website at http://www.whistlestopcafe.com/.

Thank you again Sandi!

Wednesday p.m. paint class ~
In my landscape classes I'm really trying to teach these ladies how to learn the techniques and start painting murals. They learned how to paint a Sky, clouds, mountains, trees, shrubs, vineyards, as well as depth and perception in a painting.

Too much painting and not enough house work ~ that is how I woke up feeling this morning. My house desperately needs to be dusted and vaccumed and well I wish I could be Barbara Eden for about an hour and fold my arms, blink my eyes and have it all done ~ especially my studio that is in a shambles. Lately when I've tried to organize it I've just found myself moving stuff from one table or drawer to another and getting no where with it.
So, I've just finished my second cup of coffee and have read quite a few of my favorite blogs and now it's off to being a full time HOUSEWIFE today. Nothing desperate about me but I cannot say the same for my house at the moment. Have a wonderfully PRODUCTIVE day!

Hey...lets swap places for a while! I have been doing TOO MUCH HOUSEWORK and NO painting! I have to get back to painting soon before I get into a case of serious depression. I need a girls day out with you to paint and have lunch..OH, and shop at HL! Hugs to you, and much love to Steven and the boys. I miss ya'll!

Hope your day was good and you got lots accomplished. It always feels good when you can look back and see all that you've done.
