Memorial Day Weekend

This has been a fantastic weekend for me because it started on Thursday! I went to a flea market in Hartville, Ohio and then went to Kingwood Center in Mansfield, Ohio. If you get the chance go and visit Kingwood. It is beautiful and peaceful there. 

Friday I went to the Book Loft in German Village. I had never gone there before but I always wanted to go. I could spend all day there with no problem. Books of every kind and very good prices! I can't wait to go back.

Saturday I went and got a haircut and then came home and had a cookout. Ben, Barbie, Hannah, Haden, Chad, and Mary came over. Katy was at the Asian Festival here in Columbus and I missed her, but I knew she was having fun.  We all ate too much, but it was fun to be together.  Later in the evening we took Hannah and Haden to a park to play and all watched a movie together at the house.

Today I went to Mary and Chad's house for another cookout. Mary and I did a little shopping and then I came home and made a playlist for the blog. This playlist contains the songs I like to listen to when I am painting.  I did paint some this weekend but didn't finish anything yet. I will finish 4 paintings the first of the week and will post pictures then.  For now here are some pics from Kingwood.... I hope everyone had a happy and safe weekend. I am back to work tomorrow morning....

Frost tonight!

I am so glad that I haven't planted any flowers yet because it is supposed to frost tonight. I did however get up the courage to mow my yard this afternoon. I was a little worried because I haven't totally recovered from my last bout of poison ivy! I will let you know how things are in a few days... I have several Angels in the works but only listed 2 on Ebay tonight.  Here they are....

Spring is finally here!!!

Well I know that spring is finally here because I have the worst case of poison ivy and oak that I have had in years! That's what I get for doing my spring cleaning up the yard. I have lived here for 6 years and never come across poison ivy but I am making up for it this year. I went to the doctor and got a shot so it should not last too long.

On a lighter note, I have had 2 vacations. I went to Hilton Head Island for 10 days the end of March and it rained every day except the last day. I didn't really care because it was 70 and I could sit out on the back balcony anyway. I just love that area! I went to Savannah, Beaufort, and Brunswick too. What a fabulous time it was. I came back and drove home from work in light snow the very next day! Have I mentioned how much I like snow?

The end of April vacation was much better. I went back for 7 days this time and it was 80 and sunny every day! I had such a wonderful time walking the beach, sitting at the pool, and painting outside. Everyday was better than the day before.

On Mother's Day evening I assembled new patio furniture for the very patio with the poison ivy growing. Roundup makes poison ivy killer so I bought some. Hope I don't poison myself putting it out there.

I am going to try to blog more...keep your fingers crossed, I get busy and forget to post.
I have been painting a lot so here are some new Angels.
