Cold, cold, cold!

Company came by unexpectedly last night, a friend from St. John's and a friend from here. We were up very late, consequently slept in this morning. Got up at 6:30, late for me. The fire had gone out and my fingers are frozen here as I type. Anyway, got the fire in now so hopefully it will warm up soon. Another bloody cold night! We're invited to a party tonight but I'm hoping it won't be a late night. Wednesday I'm having a birthday dinner for a friend so the diet will have gone to hell the next few days. Have to get back on track again.

Not much happening with regard to the birds at the feeders. The same ones coming back and forth as usual. The Redpolls are still here every day. So....thought I'd take a couple of "artistic" pictures in the kitchen. The sun was coming through giving highlights to objects. I've been getting a niggling feeling that I should do paintings of them. My daughter has been after me to start painting again. I've been seriously thinking of getting a small studio added onto the house. Have to think about it a bit more though. All my brushes, canvas, and other art supplies are all set up at one end of the living room, waiting in hope that I pick them up and do something with them, lol. The thing is, I need space away from everything else!

Sounds like you are having a busy time. Love the photos, and yes, you should start painting, it's a lovely hobby to have. I tried watercolours a few years ago, my mum has a couple of my masterpieces on the wall - only to be polite I think! They are crap! lol. I enjoyed doing it though.

What beautiful vignettes! And what a lovely home you must have. Please get your paints out and show us what you can do. (Says she who hasn't touched her paint box in 11 years!)

LOL ST. I don't think so. Thanks everyone for the encouragement. When and I say WHEN, I get one done, you will be the first to see it.
