|yep! almost melted already!|
we like snow around here, as it's been dry. We woke on Tuesday to about 4-5" but it was a wet snow and started melting with the sun's appearance. I didn't get a pic til 3PM but Milo the model, said it's still high on his boots and hiding the toys.
When I cook, I think of what flavors will go together. Last week we made a "greek" flavored dish.
Olive oil, lemon juice, white wine, minced garlic, chicken breasts, Oregano and thyme, artichoke halves, mushrooms, and sliced lemons on top simmered together. Add cooked orzo til it melds. Serve with a cooked green vegetable
I made a wonderful pecan pie without corn syrup by substituting maple syrup for our little special dinner...
watching someone else cook
To Do list
decorate the house for Christmas
Painting then Sewing
Sonja enticed me to try a new technique she enjoyed seeing on youtube... she got me to paint again, making 4 small works.
I printed one cropped image onto printable fabric, in black and white and in color and hope to make two art works from that soon
story tomorrow on paint party Friday
|printed onto fabric|
same books as last week
"Wine Country" with about 10 of the funniest ladies in entertainment at the moment, a friend group celebrates a birthday with a trip... hilarity ensues. It made me so happy and long for my own friend group that I may have to watch again. (netflix)
new to us is The South Westerlies a fun show featuring a woman and her son in England undercover for work, with lots of characters and lovely scenery. Very engaging but a typical short-ish Brit tv season (netflix)
The Great British baking show is still dropping an episode a week, we're on the last episode of The Crown last season but the new season is now showing, Secrets of the Castle (youtube) a series exploring how a 14th century castle was built, by three current anthropologists using historic techniques. As always I watch 90 day fiance (TLC) (glad I'm not them) and real housewives of Potomac, Salt lake city, and Atlanta, Southern Charm (Bravo) is back about people in Charleston, Amazing Race (CBS) Finding your Roots (PBS) A million little things (ABC) is back
I love this song by Bing Crosby "I'VE GOT PLENTY TO BE THANKFUL FOR"
keep up with friends by FT and zoom.... I mentioned to
dh that the signal in my studio was weak for that and he researched
solutions and ordered something to correct it. I need to feel connected
I zoomed with Mary on Tuesday and had not one moment's reception problems so I think zoom has failed in the past because of so many students on it. What fun to see my long time friend, tour her work in progress, talk art +dogs+entertainment+life. I had a wonderful long conversation with Diane in Texas and Cindy in SC last week.
|yep, melting and sticky|
Milo: Hi ya! I'm baaaack! I like snow and playing in it but not having to goinnakennel when I come inside
Mama: well you have to thaw out before running all over the house!
Milo: what's a little snow in the house? So I wanted to tell you guys that I like Mama and like keeping a keen poodle eye on her so when she disappears into the house I go looking for her.
This week I found her in the little room we take baths in but... and it's a big problem, the door was closed.
closed. that's right, shut. I pushed and pushed with my rock head and hear Mama say my name but the door was still shut. Do you understand??? Something kept me from getting to the Mama! Why anything could happen to her in there and I'd be out here and not in there.
Mama: honey, there is no way out, relax I'll be out in a moment.
Milo: sheesh! Some mamas.... she did it again this week, this time disappearing into the studio and the door was shut again! I mean what is going on around here? I bashed and bashed it til I got that one open and trotted right in to see what was going on in there. Know what? she was sewing. I mean who needs privacy from your bodyguard just to sew?
Mama: I didn't try to keep you out, the door just shut.
Milo: well you should be more careful.
now sit! stay! visit with mama's friends who have lists of likes too. And happy turkey day y'all. And be grateful if you have a cat or dog to look out for you. You're welcome.
