It wasn't that it was super-exciting. It's just that it was a very good week. One reason? One of my favorite pix of Harry! (There's another coming at the end, too.)
For starters, there was this guy!
Nothing is better than a surprise visit from a Baby Grand -- especially on a nice day.
It wasn't long enough (are they ever?) but there was time for a story (OK, a paragraph or two because there is SO much to see at Grandpa's!)...
...and a walk in the yard.
There was time to bake (come back soon for a wonderful cookie recipe!)...
...and to set the table with another treasure from Rita's Purge, a wonderful tablecloth.
I can see why she chose this one for me!
It was a week with book club ("The Hare with Amber Eyes"). Those of us who read it, enjoyed it because we love art and art history.
The rest, not so much, but we ate well!
The coffee table was cleaned off and ready for them but even that filled up with more food!
This pretty table runner was part of the Rita Purge Collection as well!
The pansies and daffodils are out. The tulip heads are being munched by deer. Can't have it all!
A walk to the ditch brought a perfect day. The pussywillows are on the way out but those little specks aren't dust -- they are bees flying around!
Nothing is better than art time!
Especially when you are painting with a friend.
Monique of La Table du Nana told me about this wonderful watercolor book to help one better learn to paint flowers, so I did the tulip first (because it had instructions!)
Then I switched to an old friend to try out some new paper, also recommended by Monique called Yupo. I don't think it's great for watercolor -- hard to control (to the degree you can control watercolor!) but my old standby cat was OK. Not great. OK.
We had lunch before our ditch walk and painting. I thought the strawberries in my crocus bowl looked very springy!
Of course, there's always some humor to be had. Bumper photography!
And I leave you with a wave and a smile.
Till next time.
