Sunday Evening Blues


I have enjoyed this weekend very much. I think it has been the change in the weather. I feel really good. I have a little of my cold still hanging on, but overall, very good! I absolutely love the sunlight!

(that's my ghillie suit, on the fence)

So, today I was extra ambitious (well, for me, I was ambitious). I started by raking some of the mess up in the back yard, dead twigs and stuff. Then I mowed the lawn, fertilized just a smidgin, and watered it. I did some other chores and then painted this.



I am not particularly pleased with it. I was going for a boy's monogram, but I m not certain that the jet works...it seems, as Cora so acurrately put it, that the jet is attacking the tractor... oh, well, back to the drawing board, so to speak.

I am still waiting for a job for tomorrow. I hope it comes along. I like having them ahead of time, then I don't have to worry so much about it...

Cora, on the other hand, has been a dress making fool! She has made a couple good ones tonight. I think I am going to go through my accident reports and fix some of the holes...they are getting tattered...

We continue to wonder about Burundi. What exact size is the little boy in Burundi...Cora bought a few different sizes to be on the safe side. What's the weather there? Turns out it's something like 80 degrees year around. What do we take? Who knows. Hopefully we will soon.

Is that first picture a photo or one of your paintings. I absolutely love it. I like the little boy pictures. Little boys like lots of action and I think they would love the jet plane.

Great job on the painting! Is this E for BB?

I hope things with Burundi go quickly and that you get to travel soon!

I like it! Please run with idea of the plane attacking the tractor by adding in a missile or two. Kids and adults would always be commenting on it and laughing.
love sis

It has been a decent weekend apart from the being sick thing. I like both the tractor and the jet just maybe not in the same painting.

Oh and no E is not for BB think A or at least that is my thinking, Jim may have different thoughts.
