Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving 2016

It is Thanksgiving 2016!  We’re heading to Jennifer’s and Spencer’s in Pennsylvania.  We drove straight through. We made two stops for gas, and using the bathroom.  It takes about 4 hours.

We arrived around 3 p.m.   Spencer was tending to the prime rib, and Jennifer the other fixings.

Dinner was wonderful – prime rib, potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce.  For dessert we had the two pies Elizabethe and I made, as well as pumpkin pie and fried ice cream.  Definitely over indulgence, but I’m not complaining.

Grandchildren Acting Silly

After dinner we took pictures of my granddaughter in her baptismal dress.  It was drizzling, cold and dark, but I managed.

Her Baptismal Dress

Because their house is being remodeled, we headed to a motel about 45 minutes north of their place.  We are spending the night here and leaving in the morning.

Heavy Rains

Heavy Rains

We woke this morning to heavy rains.  It was one of those rains where the rain gutters over filled, spilled over and filled the window wells and leaked in to the basement.  I hate when that happens.

Rain gutter cleaning is a huge deal out here.  When you get as much rain as we do, you have to make sure the gutters are clean and drainage away from the house is unobstructed.  Otherwise, you can end up with a flooded basement.

I spent a good portion of the day preparing images for a potential client to view.  In spite of having a lightening fast computer, I still yearn for more speed.  Computers can never be fast enough.

While part way in to this project, a lady called requesting some more images, so I then had her request to handle too.  By the time I got done it was after 10pm.  Yawn.  It made for a very long day.

But, in the mean time, I found this cool painting.  I had forgot that I ever did this.

This got me thinking about setting aside days to go through old images looking for forgotten gems.

Forgotten Painting

I wish I had room to print and display my work.  Better yet, buy my work, display it, and just send me a picture taken with your phone so I can see how it looks on your wall.

Here’s how it looks matted and framed.  (My suggested matting and framing… you can choose whatever you want on my web site.)

Now, wouldn’t that look cool in your family room or garage?
