Bravo’s Work of Art Wednesday!

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

No blog prompt today just your basic yakity yak about…

I feel good because I had a sound night’s sleep! I am rested AND, stress free because we will be traveling no where on this Thanksgiving eve! I am not fond of traveling unless its for some foreign or exotic adventure to a place I’ve never been. I’m happy to see family but I rather they do the traveling and I do the cooking 😀 But this year no one is coming over and we are going out to a restaurant since we have no kitchen sink, its in the process of being replaced. I won’t need to cook or clean, YAY! for no pressure holidays. Anyway, I try to be thankful/grateful daily, its a way of life and I’m no Pollyanna, but a mantra of positivity and appreciation can only be good. If you are traveling, my best wishes for a safe and swift trip and a memorable drama free Thanksgiving dinner!

Tonight, a serious bit of fluff entertainment, my guilty pleasure WOA!! It probably won’t be nearly as entertaining without the amusing “Sucklord”, but we’ll see! love to hear your thoughts if you watch it…*edit* not back on till 11/30

Today I’ll be packing and printing as I have recently made a few art sales. Then a bit of cleaning and walking the pugsters. I attached a coupler to their leash so seeing eye dog sassy could take the lead for blind boy, Balthazar. It works great!

Yesterday on our walk, in the midst of all green there is a single orange leafed tree, it looks like its on fire! What a stunning tree it is, and you can’t tell in this photo but the leaves are nearly neon in their coloration and glow, so so pretty! Nature can truly be a work of art 😀

Life’s gifts, like a flaming orange tree, so much to be thankful for!

A very Happy Thanksgiving to readers of Tricia blog

Hope your day is touched by love and good food!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

UPDATE: we had a beautiful quiet Thanksgiving with my bro and his lady. I was immensely pleased with how the turkey turned out and my perfect gravy, (the first time ever!) not a lump in sight!! Her a little glimpse:

We had my son in law and Baby V for Thanksgiving dinner, thankful for that. Baby V is such a joy, so funny and energetic. And hungry. The little guy is hungry!

I just don’t know how people can stand being out in the shopping madness!!  Its so easy to shop right online..

We will go get our Christmas  tree today as I like to get as much mileage out of it as possible! I enjoy spending plenty of time adding each ornament, it will take nearly a day to decorate. I like all the preamble to the holiday more than the actual holiday, that nostalgic feeling of cozyness, staying warm inside, deliberating about gifts and creating all the stuff for sale has become a big thing for me, its fun. I even like doing the Christmas cards! We are going to make cookies for family and I may make some tamales for Christmas dinner though I am not sure I should try without mom’s help! She is especially the expert at applying the masa (dough) to the corn husks 😀

Our Thanksgiving was very low key and quiet, no drama which is the way I like it. My stuffing turned out exceptionally good this year, not sure why, just glad it did, its so tricky to get it just right.

Here is my ugly ornie, I like it so much I might not sell it.

If I had kept all the ornaments I have made over the past three years I would have a whole tree full of unique one of a kind handmade ornies, at the same time, I adore the idea of collectors adorning their tree with my pieces for many years.

Happy Thanksgiving to any persons reading here today! Hubbie and I are having a peaceful day at home. I don’t care to travel on holidays in particular.

Though its been a very rough year for this artist I still have a lot to be thankful for.
