Tis the Day after Christmas

And all through our home, things are beginning to look "normal" today... all Christmas decorations will stay till the day after New Year (at least) and all cleaning is discontinued till the first of the year.

Dewey's Annual Christmas Party was held on December 23rd.  I believe it was the very best over the past 10 yrs.  Not a chair was empty from noon till 2pm...there was potato and pasta salad, and green beans, dip for chips.  Then fried chicken, meatballs, and all kinds of cheese.  Soda and water to wash it all down...oh and can't forget the Chocolate Eclair and cookies for those with a sweet  tooth.
Most of all was the wonderful fellowship with friends and neighbors.  I left the shop before it was over because the dogs were home alone.

Christmas Eve was our annual visit to Lisa Lynn's home where all our families gather to share Christmas Cheer.  It was a wonderful time for all of us to Celebrate the Birth of our King, Christ Jesus all those years ago.

Here's hoping each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas, blessings from our home to yours all through the New Year.  hugs, peace and joy from Dewey and Bevie

Good morning, I've been really busy creating new paintings for sale.  Thought I share some with you, hope you like them!

I got my new glasses after 9 whole's amazing what I've been missing. 
We've had 3 days in a row with temps of over 95 and humid not good for us older folks or those with breathing problems.   I'm just so thankful for being about to get up out of bed each morning, and still being able to drive on good days...I'm keeping all my friends close in prayer, and hope you all are having great days with joy from God in your heart...blessings, Bevie

I'm so happy Spring is here!

Many of us are so happy to see warm weather after the severe cold we had here on the East Coast. Living up here in the mountains of VA we saw more snow than those living in the City.  Shoveling is something I can't do anymore, and it's difficult for Dewey to do now days.  Sure would be great if our grandsons would come help once in awhile.  Seems they are always too busy, so we just don't ask...and it's not as if we don't offer to pay them...heheh  
Ok I've been having a problem with my balance and little mini driving and walking around is really difficult.  So sitting and working at the computer and painting is what I do most...those little dust bunnies are running all over the house these days, course Dewey tries to help.  Poor guy is such a great helper...always remembers to help me out of the car, and hold my hand when crossing the street...gets the heavy stuff out of the car after he takes me to the grocery store.  Sigh!!  I hate to be such a bother, but he assures me he doesn't mind...Could I be more blessed, NO. We have gotten closer as time goes by...I can't believe we've been married almost 31 years.  

Just a couple photos of some recent paintings and zens...Blessing to all my friends who find time to stop by. 
Peace and grace!

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
