Hello my Tuesday FRIENDS!!!
for your well wishes and prayers for my hubby!! He is doing much better this week and less reliant on the pain medications. He has entered that I'm bored and miserable and I'm trying hard not to be mean stage. So far he has pretty much managed to be good.
Both of us had "cabin fever" over the weekend as the ice storm kept us inside. I only ventured out when it was necessary to take the dogs out.
This is what I got to see as we slipped and slid across the yard.
The back steps that only this guy was brave enough to use and even he had difficulty.
The tall ornamental grass all smashed down from the weight of the ice :(
The birds chipping through the ice on the feeders..twice I had to go out and break the ice off the seeds so they could get to them.
Grass that had greened back up with last weeks 70°F temperatures. Now coated with ice.
The lavender all coated and laying down.
The Wisteria sparkling in what little sunshine there was. (below)
The backwoods all covered and sparkling. We lost a few big branches back there and smaller branches all over the place but all in all minimal damage. Thankfully it warmed up enough between ice waves to melt off most of it before the next batch landed. If it hadn't we would have had some serious damage I fear.
So we stayed in and I cooked a lot and we ate a lot and then I painted.
Another painting from my
I'm not sure if I'm done with her or not... letting it rest a day or two . My backgrounds are getting looser like I want but the faces aren't getting there yet but I like her.
So that's it for me this week.
