Gorgeousness


What a beautiful weekend! Friday evening I got to visit with my parents who were in town for the evening, which started the weekend out right. Saturday morning my friend Ruth brought some flowers from her yard to our painting group, so I just had to do a quick sketch of them. I wish you all could have smelled those lilacs -- heaven. Later, after a diet-busting lunch with Doug and a nice long talk with my daughter on the phone, I got to meet up with Diahn to go see some great art and then hang out at the coffee shop (busting the diet even further) until nearly dark. Simply gorgeous.

And the gorgeousness continued today with lunch at Cosmo's and a new little piece of furniture and getting the wireless printer all set up, then opening the windows and turning on fans while doing a total rearrange of the guest room closets, my study closets and making a good dent toward cleaning and rearranging my painting space. All being done as I get ready for a piano to be delivered into the same area where I paint and (YAY!) company coming in next weekend. I worked like a dog but had a blast doing it, with the fresh air and the music blaring and knowing that the end result would be fantastic.

Tomorrow it's back to work, and I'm looking forward to a great week.**

**NOTE -- even if it snows. You guys, I've said it and said it... in east Tennessee we ALWAYS get cold weather and usually a touch of snow on April 7, 8, or 9. ALWAYS. Stop acting all surprised about it! And the flowers will be FINE. The cold makes the blooms last longer. And if you're working on your lawn, get up early tomorrow morning and scatter out some grass seed. TRUST ME...

This post makes me happy just to read it! I, too, love days like the one you had! Your flower painting is so pretty--all those flowery colors melting into each other.
Thanks for sharing your burst of joy!

A very lovely watercolour painting, Linda! I love the composition and especially the colours. Gorgeous indeed.

Sounds like you had a really good weekend :)

I find out tomorrow if my cast comes off or i it has to go back on for another 10 days or so... Wish me luck!
