Goodbye 2010!!!

Time to say goodbye to 2010. I have a drainting (that's what I call my cross between drawings and paintings) that I am working on and that I intended to post for my final post of the year today. But, it's only half done. That pretty much captures a good portion of the year - often rushing, usually behind, and rarely getting things done the way I had imagined. But, that's alright. There were some really good pauses in the midst of it all.

I heard on the radio that there was an intense tornado in Cincinnati, Arkansas today. A man was pulled out of his bed and carried across the street by the force of the storm. He said he kept his eyes open the whole way because he wanted to see the end coming.

Are your eyes opened?

Slow going

Yikes. It's been almost a month since I posted. And what do I have to show for it? Not much. The good news is that I sold two of the sheep - and the Badger Face Welsh Mountain sheep is headed for New Zealand! That made me feel better about letting him go, since he is my favorite. I also have a few new followers to this blog, a couple of whom I am not sure who they are. Welcome one and all!

R. and I spent Sunday afternoon working on our holiday cards. I managed to cut out about two pieces of paper in the time that she made seven cards. It turns out that making good pictures out of cut paper is a lot harder than it looks. It's also not true that adults can concentrate longer than kids can. I think ADD is the new 40.
