It was a beautiful day from morning 'til night. I'm just so tired from standing up, a crash is in my near future.
After chores I went out back with the horses to pick the pastures.
Why would Abbe want to stay white????
Around noon Rick Davis came over to put on some new shingles where they had blown off the barn. You wouldn't get me up on that 40 foot ladder.
Gathered up everything I needed to take to the opening, took a shower and got down to the gallery around 5.
When it comes to showtime, my students never let me down. Not only do they produce beautiful work, they always come through in the food and drink department. We know how to do this.
Gary got me a basket of flowers at Sara's today and all can be planted in our garden. They sure added to the ambiance.
Bill and Bonnie came early, as they had company coming...
and the rest of the crew arrived shortly after that.
We had so much food and wine we needed to get an extra table.
Cheese, crackers, veggies, grapes, nuts, chocolates, dried fruit, cream puffs....and more.
Doug and Gerri were among the first to arrive.
Within the first half hour more than 60 people were there.
My lime water turned out great! Even Scott loved it.
I sure appreciate the support this community has given me, and I could not ask for better students.
It was a very special evening. Many thanks to Kathy and Stuart for providing this village with a first class gallery. Kudos all around!
