Weekend Wrap Up

I wanted to share a couple of quick things before the work week starts back up.

First off, I finally finished a painting I’ve been working on for several weeks.  I have to qualify this by saying that I’m not a painter and don’t have any pretensions of ever being one, but I’m doing this to just try and stretch my personal boundaries a bit.  It’s nice to just relax and enjoy something without feeling any pressure to perform.


The words on her crown read, "There was a legend in the city."

Second, cat pictures.  This time, our bobtailed cat Dragon.  Forgive me for linking you — I told the whole story when I listed the yarn at Midday Faire.  Although the yarn she has become enamoured with is for sale (well, a little bit of it is.  It’s mostly for her.  Not like I had a choice.) it can’t be purchased until Tuesday at noon, so go enjoy the story without the risk of engaging in impulse buying. 

Third, bad dog.  Our stray dog, Trouble, manage to escape this afternoon.  The judge is usually fleet of foot, but he was enjoying an afternoon siesta.  By the time he caught up with her, she was behind our house in the alley, and apparently she put up a fight.  He was the loser.  You can’t quite tell, but his pants were ripped for about 12 inches down the leg.  Trouble was treated to hot dogs.


Finally, a couple more harbingers of spring.  It’s beautiful here.  My lavender is getting ready to bloom.  It’s Grosso — the kind where the bloom looks like a little bee at the top.


And our cherry tree is about to be in full bloom.


I hope it’s beautiful where you are, too!

  1. Joyce, there aren’t too many buds here in Michigan, but the only snow left is the remnants of the snow that was piled up in lots and cul-de-sacs from plowing. I loved the pictures of the cat and the yarn.

  2. Joyce…i think your painting turned out beautifully. I need to stretch my boundaries also. I have a blank canvas in my room just waiting for me to start in on. By the way, the weather is gorgeous here but i can feel the sweltering heat coming soon.

  3. Joyce, I love the content of your blog…very friendly and personal, just like an informal chat.
    And I am very happy you are having some spring show up in your neck of the woods, we are still in the grips of winter and cold.
