Sweet Rainy Day

Today was such a rainy day, but at least it was warm. Christmas shoppers were everywhere.  I had a 30% off coupon which made it the perfect time to do some 'major' Christmas shopping....SO I DID :0)
As I was checking out I began talking to the lady behind me, she had been in the back of the store doing some shopping over the phone to get free shipping. As we talked, the sound of the pouring rain sang on the roof like a rock band. She asked if I had an umbrella, which I didn't. She told me to take her umbrella and she would get it back when the clerk loaded my car. I pulled up to the front of the store and here she comes with not only her packages, but mine too. Wow, what a wonderful reminder that there really are some sweet people left out there. What a great day!

Let Me Introduce a Few of My Chickens

This is Winter of the Four Seasons..which only 3 are complete. Fall is still in the thinking.

This is Opp T Mistic. She is the chick who stands for the fight against Breast Cancer. I painted her in honor of my sweetest friend, Gaylene Opp. Gaylene was diagnosed in December 2008. She fought a very courageous battle. On February 27, 2011 she received her wings. All proceeds of sales from this print will go to Susan G Komen Knoxville.                                                       
                                              This is Artsy Chick...hummm, yes I painted her as myself.

Next Door Neighbors

 We have been camping this week.  
 It's a great little place not to far from home, 
where we can travel back and forth for work if we need to.
A business associate came by today 
and took me for a ride around the property next to the campground. 
I had seen different animals in the neighboring fields,
 but today I got a close look at them.  

I love donkeys! 

                                     This is truly an odd couple. Walking thru the field together.
                                                             This is Honey. My tour guide.
                                            I believe these are Elk, they were frightened of us.
                   Not sure what type of deer these are, but I thought the picture turned out pretty cool.
I think these are the younger deer. I kinda thought they were Reindeer, but not sure.
                                                  This is the beautiful addition to a home.
                              This will be the bedroom overlooking the beautiful creek. It's amazing.
And an old stained glass window. I love it!
