Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)
It was a good day yesterday ...
I packed up my quilting stuff, in separate bags .. I came to a final conclusion .. I'm over at the condo enough and I've pretty much gone through the paperwork needed, so when I go over there, (early on visit days, today will be to sit with the furnace maintenance guy) I can have that to work on .. It won't be put together fast, but at least it won't sit dead in the back of the closet .. so now I have something to work on there .. :) and I reset up my drawing tables .. I played and practiced a new technique that I had read about for highlights .. so I worked on a feather .. and it turned out pretty good all things considered .. learning learning learning .. and fun when I'm excited about learning .. :)
Got to mom's around 1ish.. and got there before Bill this time.. :)
It was a good visit .. except only once she wandered off to another world ... and while it scared me the first time but this time it didn't .. She started talking about us bringing her kitchen table, which is huge, and would never fit in her place unless we took out one of her dressers .. and that's not an option .. but she insisted that we could put it in the other room .. just take out the shelves .... Bill and I looked at each other, and she was sooo insistant . I told her that there was no other room, just the bedroom, and there's no room for the table in there .. ?? and she laughed saying "the table doesn't go into the bedroom" .. but we told her over and over that she doesn't have a 3rd room .. and she insisted that she did .. so finally she wanted the wheelchair .. and I told Bill .. it's his turn this time .. He got up and brought the wheelchair over .. and she got up and in nice and quick .. impressed both of us .. but he wheeled her to the bedroom, and she sat in there, and said .. she swore there was a second room off "that direction.. (she did the same thing with decorating with her gnome stand) ... We kind of giggled it off .. she's been saying that she's been having really vivid dreams .. and we just put this to one of them .. but that always throws me for a loop ..
She talked with Bill alot, because she sent me to pack up her pants that she can't wear right now .. to take back to the condo; so I packed them up .. and they are in the back of my truck to go in today .. There are still 2 rubbermaid buckets at mom's condo; and I will pack them up in there .. and put them in the bedroom closet .. But that was okay .. because I had been there on Tuesday and Friday .. and well ... things don't change that much ..
But it was a good visit ..she was pretty on mark except the extra room thing .. and that always makes me happy .. and she's trying to do more for herself.... and Bill even said .. she may be sore now, but if she continues; the sore should start to get less .. (glad Bill said that .. because I would be talking to the walls .. lol )
Got home and hubby had a drink ready for me .. YUMMMM .. and I had a smoked sausage on a bun for dinner .. YUMMMM .. I sat, and decided to go upstairs and continue my "practice feather" .. I had picked up some presents for me at Micheals on the way home from mom's .. and well .. I wanted to play with them .. and did a quick dog scribble .. the scribbles were just off the top of my head, and I don't know how he's going to turn out; but it's good for practice .. I got black paper, and beige paper .. to see if there was a difference working with something other than white .. Just for the reference .. I prefer the white .. but Im sure the black and brown will be used .. The good news is the white pencil comes through with more than just a blending .. it's different .. and it's interesting .. but it's going to take me a while to work with it .. there is no such thing as scraping highlights ... learning learning learning .. :
I slept good last night .. and woke up this morning bright and early ..
Tomorrow Bill and Kathy are still going with me; even though I told him that I wasn't sure what the outcome would be, because Jennifer made a post on the lacking of eagles in the area .. I told her that it was probably because of the hard freeze .. food is a challenge and they probably went elsewhere for hunting .. I just haven't found that elsewhere .. but I told him I was still going .. and he said that he and Kathy wanted to still go .. so I will have company tomorrow .. so my morning blog is going to be just a flyby .. as I'm meeting them by the condo at 8 ..
Okay -- that's my story for today .. here's wishing today is a good day, and tomorrow I get many many photos .. :) of SOMETHING .. .lol lol lol .. But at least I can show Bill and Kathy my "hiding spots" ..
Have a wonderful day .. I'm going to !!!! :)
