EDiM #21

EDiM #21 Something That Makes Me Happy - My 3 dogs are my babies. I never had children but these and the other pets I have had over the years have kept me happy. I did my bird Bozo in an earlier one so used just the dogs on this one. Here are Dizzy a Miniature Schnauzer, Penny a Yellow Lab, and Jo a toy poodle. I didn't get any of these as tiny puppies (All my other dogs I raised from 4-6 weeks old). I got Dizzy when she was 4 months, Penny was 9 months, and Jo was maybe 6-8 years old. Each one needed a new home and mine was available. I love dogs so much that I'd probably have a dozen if I was allowed and could afford it. These are pretty much house dogs as they are not just pets, they are family.

In the Garden

Here is one photo of the beautiful garden our plein air group visited today.  We had a wonderful day and had a great time with 13 artists there.

EDiM #16 - Neighborhood Store

This is a small mom and pop type store that has been in the neighborhood since I was in grade school and maybe long before that. It used to be called Allen's after the former owner. Watercolor and pen & ink.

Sugarmill - their Flowers

I had lunch today with friends at a small restaurant called Sugar Mill. It's not fancy but does serve good food. I splurged and had my first French fries since May of last year. Boy were they good but afterward I felt like my stomach was stretched out 3 feet. I also had a BLT sandwich and iced tea with a lot of ice. Soooooo good but so filling. These flowers were in the flowerbed on the side of the restaurant. Very pretty and luckily I had my camera in the car. the EDiM theme today was "A Sweet". I did Allsorts licorice, a Newton Fruit Thin (Cranberry Citrus Oat), and a Skinny Cow Mint Ice Cream Sandwich. After the artwork, the ice cream was melting so I had to eat it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
