I got quite a treat this holiday. It was to start with an artist date with Kerri, my partner in artistic crime, on the 3rd. I got a delightful surprise that when I invited Kerri to bring Max and stay over night she finally said yes!! That made up for the fact that I blew out my back and was in a world of pain and unable to clean the house. But true friends don't mind that you haven't vacuumed your house. ;) Maggie was ecstatic that she had a new canine pal in the house and Penny just moped around hoping to hell that this one wasn't never going back home like Maggie still hasn't.
Kerri and I started Thursday doing some projects to donate for the Hubbard Hall Project fund raiser. I am certain that Kerri will be posting her fun art. I'm still fighting with mine. I am doing some of my cartoons in acrylic paints - a medium I really don't know how to use. But that ain't stopping me. I'll post my creations in various stages of un-doneness over the next few days. I have repainted one background 3 times now. I hope tomorrow I will figure it out.
Thursday night we had a wonderful dinner and then headed out with the puppies to a near-by drive-in: Wally E and Get Smart. We got a short sit outside the car until it started to drizzle rain. Max was begging some popcorn with real butter from Kerri. Sorry for the blurry picture, but I am amazed it came out at all - it was almost dark and I shot it with the flash off. We enjoyed Wally E having to turn the car off and on now and then to defrost the front windshield. The hot air from 3 people and 3 dogs and a very humid night created a bit of fogging. We couldn't stay awake through Get Smart so we headed home to our beds.
Friday, the 4th, consisted of some nice walks on a beautiful day, some art, and tacos for lunch.
After stuffing ourselves with tacos, margaritas and guacamole, everyone was really in the mood for a siesta. A great day was had by all.
Hope everyone had a great Independence Day! I'm sitting through the 4th showing of Independence Day - something good to watch and paint by.
