(a Google image/or Pinterest)Do you love Andrew Wyeth's work? I read A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline and now I love his paintings. I watched an interview on youtube where he was talking about painting and it really resonated with me. It reminded me that artists really know how to see things. Something to think about, right?
The spring snows are upon us. The white stuff doesn't last long, so I'm cheered that the moisture is soaking the soon-to-be planted flowerbeds.
I've been sewing. I made some white ruffle-bottomed pants out of the dress I wore to our wedding rehearsal. They are kind of long so I might wear them as jammies. Sewing trials.
I made a jumper/dress out of a favorite tablecloth. I like it and I'll wear it Sunday and have Bill take a photo. I noticed when I was sewing and pressing that it has some battle scars (wine, hot chocolate, ect.) I think my Granny embroidered the pocket (old dresser scarf).
My friend Heather at Blackberry Rambles made this for her nature journal students. Isn't it lovely? I wrote a psalm on the back (we wrote our own psalms for prayer group).
Here is our baby. He is a lap catcher, that one. Every time I sit down he appears.
I must travel to the grocery store and buy more candy to put in the eggs.
Our neighbor has a new granddog. Kelli loves golden retrievers so much, she just had to ring the doorbell for puppy hugs.
I love my new knitting friend, Leslie. I get so excited talking about knitting with her. Isn't this a lovely mitt? She's good!
Jenny and Scott have been camping with their new trailer. The girls like being outdoors during the day and in their fancy bunks at night. Kelli and Bryan bought one, too. They are going to hit the hills soon. Did I tell you that Granny and Grampy are NOT campers? We don't know the first thing about camping. I don't even know how to be a camping guest. I wouldn't know what needs to be done. Really, I'm an outdoor rookie and definitely an indoor lady.
Tim is our indoor mascot.
Jenny said, "And Granny is wearing a bunch of different shades of yellow." Adult children. They point out such things. 😂😂
Sam is on spring break but is taking an afternoon art class, so we met for a quick lunch topped off with donuts.
Really, this time of the year is gorgeous. Knowing that snow will be a thing of the past very soon helps. Bill has been filling the flowerbeds with top soil. Soon, we'll start our flower fest.
I bought some yellow pansies for the Easter table. I hope your Easter celebration is full of BIG JOY.
We had three lovely granddaughters spend the night last night. We stayed up way too late watching Swan Princess movies and I am in great need of a nap.
God be with you, good friends.
