Outdoor Show Over

Outdoor Show is over and everyone is getting ready for next year.

I painted hundreds of faces again, but my arm gave out around 5:00pm. Getting old.

I sold more than half of my paintings so I was very happy.

Donnie sold the CRAB BENCH in the first half hour. I was happy about that. The swan bench though, still has no home.

Colby and Bill ate MUSKRAT STEW the Sue Hughes cooked.

Erica and I had great fun and talks in the hot tub. Like me, she was amazed at the amount if stars in the sky. We talked a lot about some serious stuff. She is a very smart girl.

They left this morning after feeding the goats and birds.

So glad they drove down.

OMG!! COLBY ATE MUSKRAT!!

Yes
I have the pictures to prove it!!
He said it was GOOD!!

First Night of Outdoor Show

Well, the first night of the outdoor show is over.

We sold THREE Church paintings, painted a couple dozen faces and ate hot dogs.

Then as soon as we got home, Erica and I jumped into the HOT TUB and talked about what makes the world go around.

She I'd a very SMART girl!!

It was a very clear night and the stars were very bright and clear.

Then she ate Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup and I ate nacho's

Time for bed so we can start again tomorrow. It will be a LONG DAY!!

Oops!! I Did It Again

Another bench
This time with a SWAN
with the saying
"A white swan like a ship upon blue waters"

This will be my new "thing"
A saying next to the pix.

Pre-k is learning about building.
Today we had a 2 hour delay and only 5 students showed up for the day.
We took this opportunity to get out ALL THE BUILDING TOYS and CREATE and BUILD!!

Bill At Work

He says he is waiting to leave the Hotel
and catch his flight back to the States!
Do we BELIEVE THAT??

Sunset on the Bay

Today was a GORGEOUS DAY!!

I drove Ms. Elaine to town and on the way home we went on a mini-roadtrip adventure.

We drove all the back roads of Taylors Island. It is so much fun and way more interesting going on an adventure with someone who knows so much.

Anonymous Reader Says...

I am always surprised when someone comments on my BLOG. 

So glad to get the real HISTORY. Read below...

This was actually the store that was operated by the Crocheron family.
The crab house was to the NE at the edge of the water. The crab house has been gone for 25yrs or more.It was in pretty bad shape then.The crab house stopped operation in the late 60's early 70's Nice painting.

Nice Day

I didn't know how nice and warm it was outside until I walked over to give Lynn her Valentine Candy Heart from the goats to her.

Think I will sit in the sun for a while.

Old Crab House in Crocheron

Happy Valentines Day

You know it must be LOVE!!

Bill left me the last piece of. brownie. He could have eaten it on his 4:00am drive to the airport this morning. BUT HE LEFT IT FOR ME!!

Love you too!!
