First of all, you don't really think Jenny bought a nice red Caddy do you?
I was just kidding....it belongs to her boss and she had just driven it in a parade.
Now, for today's news.
After chores I went for my first trike ride.
Crossed the street and went down a couple of country roads.
Very little traffic and a beautiful morning. There are no gears, but this trike is a piece of cake to pedal. Also has a hand brake. Perfect for me and my knee is doing very well with it.
Only went about 4 miles, but will increase that each day. Put my camera, phone and a bottle of water in my basket...I'm going to love that.
Back home for about half an hour, then we went down to "the Garden of Eden" to pick some blueberries.
Friends invited us to indulge.
What a property!
From there we went to the Welcome Center
to hook up with our friends....Sandy, Jeff and Hatch.
The Manatee is back in town.
Sandy (the art teacher) was showing me some of her books and student work. Gave me a gazillion ideas.
Here, we were looking at different things you can do with watercolors.
It was getting pretty hot out by then, and we asked then to come up to the farm for the afternoon.
On the way home we stopped at Weggies to grab a couple chicken salad subs and ate here.
Then Sandy and I went out to the Studio and shared some ideas.
This is one project I would love to try next Tuesday.
Color mixing 101....
These next four pieces are examples of Sandy's work.
I love everything she does...what an inspiration.
Gary and Jeff hung out with us for awhile, then we picked them some onions to go with the veggies we brought them earlier, and Gary drove them back to their boat. A fun afternoon. We could talk art for hours....Sandy and me.
I made an attempt to read and fell asleep. Gary woke me up and said it was 6:21 and I thought he meant tomorrow morning. Go figure.
The sky got very dark so I went out to tuck the girls in.
They must have felt the storm coming and were in the front paddock....waiting for me.
It's a good thing I took my umbrella, as it was pouring when I went back to the house.
What did you do today?
