Sunset at Cedar Ridge

 Wishing a Merry Christmas and a Creative New
Year to all my friends and fellow artist.
Here at Cedar Ridge we will gather to celebrate
the birth of a King.
Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Enjoy this special time with friends and family.
Sunset seen two ways here at the Ridge.

Christmas color

 Stopped at the farm stand yesterday and they
had their poinsettias on sale. Buy one get one free.
Could not resist adding some color to our sun room
I said something about giving some away and
my husband wanted to keep them.
I think I will go to the stand on Monday and
see what they will take for what is left and
have them bring them to the local nursing home.
That would make Christmas special.
Have a great week-end.

My sister should get her gift today.
She liked the red chairs so I made her one.
I sent it off with the Brown people.
They are so good about getting things done.
Finishing up the last minute  Christmas today
Than I will go shopping tomorrow just to
 get out of the house before the big snow.
I hope we don't have.
I need a fix of Indian food.
Some hot curry and rice.
Just a day for me.

Another snowy night.

Today was a pleasant interlude.
Claudia and Abbie fellow artists came to
my studio this morning and visited for awhile.
Than we went to Gail's Studio for lunch.
Gail has a fireplace in her studio.
Gail lives on the farm.
She has a studio building that  is off by itself.
Two large rooms to create in.
They are remodeling the kitchen in their house
right now so they are eating their meals in
in the studio. How pleasant to sit at the large table
in a room heated by the fireplace and have
lunch with some fellow artists. We talked art.
What else do artist do?
A cold winter day with the fire crackling
talking about what we love.
The first of many lunches I hope.

Snowy Saturday

 Yesterdays 7 plus inches of snow created a winter
wonderland covering everything with snow.
I took all these photos out of windows or doors.
I am so blessed to live surrounded by beauty.
 Today we celebrate our middle child's birthday.
Mark is 49 today. We are having a carry in and
watching the Bears football game. A perfect
man birthday celebration.
I have a casserole of garlic cheesy potatoes
baking in the oven that and hot dogs
good football food.
This tree was 5 foot tall when I planted it
so I could put Christmas lights on it
now it is too tall to decorate. Around 15 ft.
The snow is the decoration this year.
