I was up before 5:00 am this morning. I stayed up until 11:00 working on this painting. I have a few touch ups to make, but it's essentially finished. It's the first painting I've done in 20 years. I'm afraid I'm a little rusty. Dorothy and I went walking at the Westville track; we did 1.47 miles according to my pedometer. Then up to Siloam Springs for an auction. They were selling off the lifelong accumulation of a 101 year old woman. These auctions amaze me. There's always some dealers there looking for valuable antiques and I suppose they pick up some good deals. Then there are others who, in my opinion, buy junk; and they can't seem to get enough of it. We went by and picked up Marley who seems to need some grandma and grandpa time, and besides we have a litter of kittens on the front porch. That's a real draw for a five year old girl. So now were making cookies and watching Scooby Do. All in all a fairly relaxing Saturday.
