It SNOWED today!
I stole my precious new neighbor (my sis-in-law and friend) away from her family for an hour and we had Tea in the living room.
The children are still sick, but we've had lots of productive school time.
I saw "THE EYES" last night on the way to the outhouse. They were small and close together and... yellow this time. I think it was a Fox (?) It's fun to guess anyway. When I brought AJ out to show him, my "Eyes" were gone and his encouraging words were: "I think a Mountain Lion is stalking you."
Now for a good story:
A ways back I made a new friend in the blogosphere. She goes by Xenia Katherine and is an amazing artist - I love her work! Some months ago, Xenia Katherine said she'd like a copy of the Marvel Hill Poster I painted for AJ... IN TRADE.
I asked if she was serious, and we agreed to trade original artwork. I painted an original Marvel Hill for her with some minor differences tailored to her family, and she?
Well I said "I'd like a lot of color, but surprise me!"
On our way through Oregon I had the pleasure to meet my new blogging friend as we made the trade. I couldn't believe she pulled it off - I know what real life looks like after all - but she did!
I am so very delighted with the beautiful Ink and Watercolor she created for me (and I hope you don't mind me sharing it friend).
I am blessed beyond words!
Thank you my friend, for staying up late and letting me drop in on you. I'm sure that was a little risky - we never having met!
I can't tell you how much I am enjoying your beautiful artwork - it just makes me smile. And smile...
Please ask Steven to forgive me for calling him Jon. It's fairly evident that I am losing my marbles and I feel terrible, just terrible about giving him a name that isn't his! (Steven, thanks for not throwing me out of your house! HA!)
I really would have loved to study every beautiful thing on your walls - your home was so warm and friendly. I'm sorry we didn't get to let the children play, but I'm glad you didn't get exposed to our sickness.
I got a matting cut for your painting yesterday, but didn't find the frame I wanted. However, I did find one here in the house that needs a new life. Perhaps it is meant to be. If not, I'll have a place to keep it from getting ruined until I find that "perfect frame".
I love you dear friend! I am so excited to get out my Ink and colors - you inspire me! Keep up the wonderful wonderful work.
