To counteract the anxiety and depression this has brought on, I bought flowers on Saturday.
Now, I will just post lots of photos of the flowers and the paintings in various stages!
These flowers have lasted! I put them out on the unheated but glassed in porch at night....
Here is the beginning of today's painting....
Working loosely and into wet paper, causing the paints to flow. That's good for now, will work on crisper edges later....watercolor, it's all about the flow and the edges!

We had our family together so it was good, after Thanksgiving, to go ahead and put up the tree!
The grands were so excited to help!
First the ornaments.....
This is Nina's "area".......love how she groups the pinks!!!
Then running to put presents under the tree!!!
The next day, after breakfast, opening and playing with the presents!
Art supplies and troll dolls.
Here is the art work....in the sketch book!
That afternoon we baked and decorated cookies! Tasha Tudor sugar cookies!Here is the recipe!
Then to make a great moment, we took the little ones downtown to see the Lights of the Ozarks!..
Happy girls riding ponies!
Steve and Laura share a hug!
Then bedtime, and a bedtime story!
Happy times for us!

A painting given to raise money at a silent auction....
Now let's try the new app....
Here goes! I did the post about a week ago...it was good, but would not publish...so now I am choosing photos and just saying a little about each!
My daughter and her children were here when some of us came home from the community meal at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. She had driven 12 hours from Georgia to spend a few days with us!!!
This little granddaughter loves art and drawing!
Grandson, just had a birthday, so more nerf toys were unwrapped!
We created a target for him down in the basement!
While sister Nina found delight in my bag of scraps!
More art time!
The other young Granddaughter loves to help...in the kitchen ......
Then Laura, Lilia and Bindley cooked Thanksgiving dinner for us!
The table runner was from the church sewing group! A find for sure! Complete with turkeys!
I am going to post this before I lose or mess it up....still learning this app!
One last photo of 3 of the grandkids hanging out at bedtime! Sweet and cute! Even the 17 year-old!
Under a quilt made by my grandmother, my mom and myself! Life is good!

It was a great visit!
Here are some photos....beginning with Sunday evening when we came home from a community meal at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Daughter Laura (recently divorced) was here (after a 12 hour drive!)with our grandchildren from Georgia.
We celebrated Bindley's recent birthday....nerf gun...fun?
No luck here, trying to downsize this photo....don't know if I will be able to keep blogging????
The election was a disgrace and a disaster!!!! The week with the kids gave us a respit from the terrible nightmare!!!
I will be getting these books about our horrible despicable president elect....while I still can!!!

The building is in the back of this photo....which shows how the trees were "yarn bombed" with knit and crochet!
Spinning and weaving are local crafts represented...
Basket makers and painters also had their work for sale!
