Painting, Scarves, Meme (from Lux :)

What a week! My daughter's 11 b-day party is this weekend, then we travel for Thanksgiving, and home in time to celebrate with my family on Friday the 24th.

My friend "Boneman" (Berry) at http://walkingonalligators.blogspot.com posted some of his paintings on his blog a few months ago that he was entering into a competition.
I saw one that I liked very much and I asked him about it.



We worked out a price- and the painting arrived this past Monday! I was so thrilled:)
This is kind of a Christmas present to myself. The painting now hangs in my office and I hope to get it framed in the new year. It's a permanent reminder to me of how very real and special each of you are~

Thank you Berry :)





(And I'll bet he has a few more if anyone is interested :)

SCARVES

Next- I've been a "Scarf-making Nut"- and I hope to get them all finished and sent out by the 1st week of December :) I might even get to hand a few out in person- but more on that soon.
My sweet dog and his bride might be over for a visit- or we may meet halfway- we are still working on the details :)




*************
Meme,
From my beloved friend Lux :)


My pet name is ……Oh- the best one so far has been "Sunshine"- the worst was something I can't write here- this is a kid friendly blog!
The silliest one in high shcool was "Baby Pop"- which came from a Beastie Boys song when I was 17. (not to be confused with Barney's "Baby Bop"- ICK!)

I was born on the 30th day of May, 1969- around 8am. 8am is still a lovely time to get up- I think! :)

My magic is in the food I cook, the things I create, and letters I write~

I can change my mind about something in a flash- and not worry about it :)

I was once approached to be in a beauty pagent, when I was 8- and I won! :)

I am a die hard fan of the old Winnie the Pooh(Milne), C.S. Lewis, and Robert Louis Stevenson...and I adore George MacDonald fairy tales.

I love cloudy days, thunder storms, bubble baths, large ancient trees, the sound of the ocean, the mountains in the fall, candle light, a clean kitchen, fresh sheets on the bed, to be on a boat on the lake at sunset, or sunrise, the sound of my nephews laughing or saying my name..."Nonna", my children saying good morning, or good night, or thank you- or I LOVE YOU MOM...
A breezy country home- full of comfortable furniture- and looks lived in (and believe me, mine does!)- books everywhere, chocolate hidden in special places for an emergency, an abundance of tea bags- English or Irish breakfast :) A bikini wax, a trip to the hair salon, and a footrub by a pair of strong hands that love me.
I love alternative music- that combines the sound of nature with bells, and harps, and wind instruments~

I think my husband is strong, and brilliant, kind, and trustworthy.
Viggo Mortenson as Aragorn was sexy beyond any man I have ever seen...except for a Marine I saw last summer at the beach- but I digress ;)

I dream of dancing with abandon, in the beach, under the brightest smiling full moon with my soul sisters… (this I copied from Lux- but it was too good, and too true for me not to include it!)

5 is my favorite number ;) (ok, so I added one more! :P)

I have one more blog to post before Thanksgiving, and then I think I'll be away for a while- but I'll be reading up on all of you! :)

Schaumi- I look forward to the day- whenever and however we can work it out :)

Pug- I may have to make something for you too~ are you going to freak out when I ask for your address??? :)

Pink- Friend- good to see you. I will be nuts until after the 27th :) It is possible that my being a "nut" is a life long condition though :)

Kate- I hope to get an email out to you today! But, I go to the coast with hubby Tues- Thursday, then my sisters and I plan a feast for the rest of the family- in all I guess there will be 20 or so. Little brother is in California- as is his best friend who we've illegally adopted :) It will be less colorful without them here :(

Queenie- (I LOVE that name!) I would give almost anything to celebate this holiday with you- you would love the food, and the family, and all the little ones running around. It's a lot of work, but worth everything! :)
Take care of yourself! :)

SJ- Now that I know I can send something to you and it will arrive- who knows what you'll get in the mail! :)

Libby- you are so dear. I am sorry I haven't been to your place- I promise to come over soon!
