What a gorgeous morning on Thursday!
And this morning was very pretty in a frozen-land kind of way--LOL!
I am hooking into the Zendala Dare and the Artist's Playroom today--maybe. It might be too late by Saturday, but oh well.
This was the template for this week.
I've been in a very light and airy mood, I guess.
No "official" tangles again. Just doing my own thing.
Well, let's see. Dagan and Leah switched to Thursday night because they were having a meeting about changing over to a newer phone plan that will save money. (Always good!) I made roasted vegetables with chicken and fresh hot bread. Dagan forgot the bag of stuff at home so we didn't monkey with the drying rack--no drill. Just hung out and talked baby quite a bit. (Happy Grama!) They left early because they had things to do before their SuperBowl party this weekend.
Here's the 4-month belly shot of Leah. :)
Sorry it's dark. My place has so much stuff everywhere that we had to go in the hallway and shoot against the bathroom door to find a blank space--ROFL!
At the clinic visit this week they were wondering about the possibility of twins, too. So Leah had an ultrasound yesterday. Only one baby--tada! All is well and the prediction is--a boy. Not that they are always 100% correct, but that was the technician's guess. What a relief!! One at a time is enough! Whew!
Since she hadn't gotten that much larger in the past month we were less inclined to think twins, but it is nice to know for sure. So that's the exciting news! And Leah is happy because if it had been twins...midwives won't do twin deliveries at home and Leah is planning a home birth. So--good news all around. :)
My art table has been calling to me. I wanted to use up some of these older misters, right? The six taller ones are so old they are from when Luminarte sold their mister solution with an extra empty bottle to you could mix your own with water to be as intense as you wanted. Does anyone else remember that?
Anyways, I used my new absorbent ground as a base on the page spread (supposed to be good with watercolors and such--rather than gesso) and let that dry. Then got out my misting (cardboard) box...but none of them worked. Only one of two Tattered Angels misters made a weak, drippy, brief attempt before it clogged. Since I was just using my junk/experimentation journal...well, I just opened the bottles up...
...and splattered with the tubes...
...all over the place--LOL! Was actually a lot of fun! So this pathetic showing is for APR this week.
What I am going to do with it next...well, not sure. I'll think of something. Was kind of thinking of catching up with this 52 week art prompt group...but I am four weeks behind already--LOL! We'll see.
Oh, the webinar! ROFL! I went to join...well before the appointed time...only to discover I had to download some program in order to watch it...and by the time I figured that all out and got that done...the program was "full" and I couldn't watch it after all. But I did get an email with a copy of the program afterwards. Only thing was...it was just a slide show presentation with a couple of short videos inserted...that I had already watched somewhere else online. Oh, the internet! Such a hoot!
The bag of older art magazines was picked up yesterday (freecycle). I think the beading magazines are going this weekend...and a lady had been interested in the card making magazines, but then I never heard back from her? I think I'll try calling her again. Be nice to know they all have fresh eyes upon them and can be passed around.
Let's see. Oh, the books I had requested still weren't in from the other libraries by Thursday, so Amy is planning on coming by on Sunday afternoon last I heard. I need to make another loaf of bread on this sunny day. Two degrees and we may hit five today--LOL! Hot bread with leftover roasted veggies...yumm!
Anyways, have a really great rest of the weekend!! :):)
