It seems I have been remiss lately about writing for the blog. I don't really have as much leisure time as I'd like, but today have found myself with a WHOLE DAY of solitude. After having breakfast with my friend and going to Curves, I was able to come home and do whatever I want to do. I chose to paint, since I haven't been going to the library to do so. I did the beach picture and the kooky abstract today and the clematis one evening while Terry was watching a NASCAR race.
So today I completed two paintings, and now I am watching the painting shows I recorded from KET that are not really interesting to Terry. He will watch one or two once in a while, but there are six on each week, so they stay on the DVR until I have a chance to catch up on them. That Bob Ross is amazing. He turns out a gorgeous painting in a 30-minute show. He makes it look so simple, but I'm sure talent helps! I did learn my technique of making trees and shrubs from him, though.
I also put on a pot of spaghetti sauce and made some brownies. How domestic of me. I usually have to come up with a quick meal, but this is going to be a good one for a change.
Sounds like a productive day, doesn't it? I know there are a lot of chores I could (and should) have done, but instead I have played all day. What fun! It was some relaxation I was sorely needing. Life is good....

They are all great Nancy but I love the clematis. It is just beautiful. I think days where you just do what you want are my favorite of all. Have a safe and great 3 day weekend.
