A happy April Fools Day to you all! I hope you are keeping up with the tradition of pranks and jokes. I can't say that I have had much luck yet in fooling anyone because I'm such a bad liar. I always smile when I'm trying to fool my kids and they never believe me. This is why I turn away and leave the room whenever the discussion of Santa comes up.
I started trying to get out of my rut this morning by finishing this painting. She is huge and I had mentioned before that I probably wouldn't put her up for sale but I thought "What the heck?" If she doesn't sell, I'll just keep her hanging in my studio.
Thanks so much for all of the feedback regarding the John Adams book. I know I do get a little passionate about books but I can't help it. I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. I always tell my kids that reading is the best thing I've ever learned. My grandmother volunteered as a reading teacher for adults who never learned. Could you imagine all of the things they are missing? If you really think about it, how many times a day do you read without even realizing it? Reading is definitely one of the simple things we tend to take for granted.
The weather is starting to get a little warmer around here. My garden is starting to bloom in spots and I'm going to get the patio furniture out of storage in the next couple of weeks. That's my favorite part of the season! There's nothing better than having my morning tea outside listening to the birds. And every year I say to myself...."Why don't I live somewhere where I can do this all year?" The truth is it probably wouldn't be as special, right? I promise to post some pictures of my garden when it's fit to be seen:)
Have a great day!
