Rain, Rain Go Away!

All right I know I was begging for rain, but when it is just dark and dreary and then no rain yet besides, I get tired and irritable. I love the warmth and the sunshine. At least it is warm out, too warm, and humid. As I said yesterday, we were supposed to go to the Refuge for our volunteer day. The other mom and myself decided we would skip this one, as getting stuck in the woods with a thunderstorm approaching along the Suwanee River really didn't sound like much fun to either of us.

So we Caitlin and I painted, and then we had movie day later on, Mars Needs Moms. I didn't care for the movie that much, but I am hard to please after all when it comes to movies, TV, and books.

Caitlin decided since we were not going to the Nature Refuge, that we should paint some animals. Flowers are hard enough, animals are near impossible, lol! So, she picked a seal. You see hers above and mine below. I really have to remember to paint the background first, then add the foreground. I guess I figure if the animal comes out yucky then why should I have already wasted more paint doing the background first. Ugh I frustrate myself sometimes. I think we did good for our first attempts. Then I painted on a Sand Dollar and the really nice fern shown. I signed the fern because I really like it, and I think I am going to frame it. Simple yet lovely, with nice color scheme. That was pretty much our Thursday. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

I think your seal looks great. I can't stand dark gloomy days although it does make it easier to work.

These are all pretty! I really do like your fern too!

These are very beautiful works of art. Very impressive for Caitlin.

On one hand, I can do a rain dance. You know, I always look forward to the wildflower season, and we need that rain.

Thank you to all of you. Your encouraging words mean a lot to me.
