This weeks page is dedicated to the color teal. Previous two weeks pages, the tooth extraction and a yellow house with green trim and a red door, don't necessarily want such a thing, just wanted to write about it. We went to my folks' for Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful time of relaxing and playing games, and of course eating delicious food! And when we got home yesterday we got a tree!! Decorating it was fun, Jason took a lot of pictures of that process, but I was in my jammies after a long day of driving and don't want to share all of those. Guano was insistent that he be the center of someone's attention, so many of those photos have some of him in them.
Goodness he's cute!
I am so blessed, I'm madly in love with a wonderful man, who takes such good care of me! I have so much to do for school and the holidays. Life is a bit crazy. But it was good to take a few days and see my parents and put up a tree. Now, there are papers to write, music to arrange and pieces to memorize!

Blue Skies

As I write this it has started to rain, but the above picture reminds me of the blueness of the sky these past few days. The weather has been beautiful, so not what I expect in November, but nice none the less.
On the 5th a tooth was pulled from my lower right jaw and my bottom lip and chin are still numb and hurt from time to time. Apparently this can happen and will go away eventually. The recovery from this ordeal has been rougher than I'd have thought, but the dentist thinks it may well be the last tooth I ever loose because the roots are so healthy. That at least is good news!
That same day my dear husband drove to the Ill. side of STL and back to bring home a sofa from his folks. It is great to have a nice comfortable sofa that is easier to get off of, but it made for a long day, and the weekend following was barely enough time to recover.
I did do an art page last week, but I will not be posting it now. The reason is just that I know I'll be doing another tonight, and would rather wait and to a post just about that, and about art in general.
The same ladies who did the Artists' Way are now doing Walking in this World, by the same author. We are meeting in public later this evening. I should have called ahead to warn the shop, they may want to make sure we get a secluded table. When we get together nothing is sacred, meaning that everything is discussed and then some. Well, and we're loud. Or at least, I'm loud. I can't wait though, chpt. 4 and 5 are so good! It will be fun to talk it out and hear what every one else has to say.
I will leave you today with a photo I took inspired by an artist I've seen in the Somerset Studio magazines.

Halloween and Happenings

This is a printers drawer my father gave me, it's been creamerized and cleaned up an the shells and rocks in it are all ones I got myself, most at the beach, but some from a creek on the AR/OK border and all with my sister. I like this, and just need to figure out where to hang it. Halloween! I was Mrs. Peacock in the (insert room here) with a rope, Jason made me a noose to carry around. I think it's obvious who he was, but it was a totally homemade last minute thing and he was rightly very proud of his costume! His cape had pockets! And on halloween day we did some yard work. Two new boxes Jason made and we filled and he made a nice compost box there in the corner, so so happy!!!! Next spring will be awesome! This week I did two pages because I didn't do any last week. Wed was a rough anniversary for me and that is mostly what these are about. And yesterday I had a tooth pulled and am recovering well. Jason went and got a sofa from his folks and now we have a nice comfy sofa in the living room!! I am so blessed and well loved!
