I really like the background on this one too!
I got everything done yesterday that I planned to do except the bathrooms. Man, I hate cleaning bathrooms! Maybe I'll get to them today.
We finally got our passport applications in. We picked up the forms some time last year. The cost of applying for passports makes us think that now we can't afford to go anywhere. By the time we paid the application fee, processing fee, photo fee, and the cost of our birth certificates we were in for around $200 each. It's a good thing they are good for 10 years. If I spread the cost over those 10 years it doesn't look quite so bad.
In one of the Yahoo! groups to which I belong we are working through the book Totally Tangled by Sandy Steen Bartholomew. I haven't started yet, but have fond memories of doing a bit of tangling last winter. As a matter of fact, I made a few Christmas cards with tangles. The recipients were thrilled to receive them.
Since I didn't get any art done yesterday - I did get my errands done, watched several tennis matches and watched the Tigers thump Chicago - I thought I'd share a tangle in the shape of a Christmas ornament that I made last year.
I hope you don't mind a rerun.
I've got another busy day planned today. As soon as the hubster arises, I am going to do my half hour on the treadmill. I am taking the daughter and her almost 3 year old out to lunch, then bringing the little one home with me while Mom gets her hair done. Of course there is more tennis to watch and I am sure the Tigers and playing the White Sox again this evening. I suppose I should start my tangling homework while watching. I have an Algebra student coming around 3 and then should get packed for my weekend trip. I am leaving tomorrow and will return some time on Monday.
I am so looking forward to visiting my sister - we will play cribbage, Scrabble, Yahtzee; go for walks; take pictures of her lovely garden; and who knows what else. I am attending a 3-day workshop at the Krasl Art Center in St. Joe while I am at her house. I have heard wonderful things about Joe Fettingis' workshop and am quite excited to get this chance to attend one.
I'd still like to put more color and shadowing into my still life from my first watercolor class in Jackson. Maybe I will get some time with that today after tutoring. If I get to it I will be sure to share it with you tomorrow.
