Birthdays, chores and studio news
Happy Birthday to DH! And to celebrate his special day … we’re painting the living room. Two tons of fun, let me tell you. But we’ll be having Christmas (with my dad) here in just a little bit, so we’ve got to get busy! Good thing I love a challenge.
Speaking of challenges – with this cold weather we’re currently ‘enjoying’ … Brrrr! … my water pipes are frozen in the studio. DH has his furnace (in the downstairs of the barn) on now, trying to thaw ‘em out.
Meanwhile, I finished my Maggie panel. I would mat and frame it, but all of those supplies are currently behind my living room furniture … DOH! Maybe next week.
And, I’ve played with some freeze-n-fuse pieces. Tried to get tricky and put glow powder on top of the moon/sun … didn’t work – oops! But overall, I like it and my head is spinning with ideas.
The Yorkie babies turn one week old tomorrow. They’re doing great as they adjust to life on the outside (- and Mom too). We’ve still got a long way to go, but I feel so much better once we get that first week ‘under our belt’. It will be a couple more weeks yet before they open their eyes and several months as they grow out their hair … so they’re still looking very much like ‘doberman mice’ …
In honor of the ‘Old Guy’ – we’ll take him to our favorite family restaurant for dinner tonight. It might lessen the pain of aging (when he sees his birthday discount on the bill) …
