Thanksgiving was awesome. So much food...we went to my sister-in-law's house by the river. It was her first Thanksgiving in her new house and we all brought food.
Two turkeys, two stuffings, two mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, Italian green beans, corn, cranberries, sweet potatoes, fruit salad, fudge, brownies, pies, etc. I did take a nice walk down to the river afterwards though. I went to Weight Watchers on Saturday and gained .2 pounds, which is not even half a pound and I worked out almost every day since then. I know I ate too much fudge though. I should hand over the "fudge reins" to someone else in the family! Oh well.
Right now I'm working on finishing up a large sunflower painting full of tiny little lines. I should be finished in a day or so. Then I move on to a couple of 8x10s (one is suns and one is mountains with flowers), a 6x9 (also sunflowers), a 12x16 (gardenias with butterflies) and then I am going to stop for a day or so and take a breather. I still have more work lined up, but I want to stop painting on the 10th. December 11 is my birthday and that's the day I get my Christmas tree and start preparing for Christmas. I have a couple of family ornaments to make too.
I hope you're all doing well. Thanks to everyone who came and supported me for the show. It was fantastic and I am still feeling the effects of all your love and well wishes. More later....
