Funky Art on Display

Today I pulled a lot of my art out to decide which pieces I will enter in the Big Spring Art Association show. The deadline for entries is the 29th of this month. That is Wednesday! So, I -played with several pieces, placed them in frames and cleaned the glass. Here is a display of a few pieces I am considering. This is my first show so I have a few things to learn. You have to get each piece "wired" for hanging. And, you have to have all this info on the back of each piece and determine the price if you want to sell it. But, it's a step out for me and I'm actually excited!

My weekend has been good thus far. Heather and I are on our own this weekend as Dad went to Irving to be with Cody. They are having some good father and son time together. So, Heather and I have had some good Mother and daughter time. We ate at Hunans Chinese food buffet today. Then we went to the nursing home to visit some of her sweet friends. She got one special friend some flowers and candy. She is so good with the elderly. I just watched her visit with everyone and kiss and hug them. She is an angel....truly with the elderly. I'm so very proud of her.

Then we went to Wally World and wondered around for quite some time. I worked out in the back yard by the pond with the plants and flower beds. Weeding, watering, etc. I watered my tomatoes and peppers. I have worked on a pillow for a friend some and did a little house keeping. I miss my husband but I have kept busy and Heather and I have had some quiet time. Tomorrow....Craig comes home, roast for dinner, and hugs...lots of hugs.....

I forgot to could I forget? I got the most wonderful package from FedEx this morning. It was a package from my sister. She had completed the circle journal entry I had challenged her with on her birthday. It was so wonderful. She and her husband also enclosed a very, very special gift for our anniversary. It was too much but oh so appreciated. She is a dear and so is her husband...even if he does call me Lester. I feel truly blessed today. We went from such a rotten weak to a wonderful weekend. Thank you Lord for all the blessings you send our way.
