On Monday night, six of our neighborhood women went to Wine and Design, and painted a beach/water scene. I'm not very happy with mine. The last time I tried to paint anything was in the 1970's and I was using oil paints. Acrylics are a whole 'nother animal (as they say) and it takes a while to get used to the speed with which it dries. I'd love to go back there sometime and paint one of their floral canvases. Last night was fun, and it was a treat to see what everyone else was doing. There were 40-50 women there, and no two canvases looked much alike when we were done. I guess the instructor wonders what goes through our heads (or how it translates to our hands!)
On Tuesday morning, I went to the Flower Shuttle. Wednesday evening I go to the flower shop where I've been working, for a group photo shoot and dinner/social. On Thursday, five of our neighbors are preparing and taking lunch to our shut-in neighbor (for which I will make my 'adult' macaroni and cheese) and on Friday, I am pleased to be flying (in a small plane) to my home town for lunch with 10-12 bloggers, all of whom first met through the web-site WV Surf Report. I have met most of them, and I am looking forward to meeting the others. I am sure the Indian restaurant we are going to will never be the same again. All my family members think I am nuts to fly in a 4-seater, but I am thrilled to be able to tag along with two good friends, so I can see all the others again. There is nothing on the calendar for Saturday and Sunday - and that, my friends, is a very good thing!!
