Yesterday I went to see New Moon. Actually I had taken off from work because my dog, Bear, was geting fixed, and he doesn't know how to drive. Seemed like a good excuse to see the movie.
I was a little shocked by the $12 price tag for HD but well worth it. The storyline is basically true to the book, and I, a true movie freak, loved it. There were a lot of teenagers skipping school there, and what I found most surprising, quite a few adult males sitting alone very engrossed in the show. Bet they didn't read that book at lunch.
Looking forward to the third movie already. I don't know how they made great movies before computer graphics.

Betty's Birdies--Finches. This past summer I was in Fulton, NY for a family reunion, and my aunt Betty had tons of yellow finches eating at her bird feeder. Inspiration.

New painting that I finished for a friend's daughter. I had a lot of think time on this one because of the brown and turquoise colors for a beach scene. I like it myself.
I am challenging myself to blog more. Today I completed 4 paintings which is really good since I've been a lazy painter too.

I have found a new passion-estate sales. The prices are higher but the junk has been weeded out. Last Friday we went to an Estate Sale by Help Me Rhonda in Highland Park. Don't know what happened, but Highland Park shut them down 10 minutes into the sale. Found this great site that lists the estate sales in the DFW area.

My cousin, Edward Patrick, Sr. died this week much too young. Take a moment to hug your loved ones.
If there is heart disease in your family, please go for your annual check-ups.

I lost a friend this week---Country Home. I have read this magazine since it first was launched and am feeling a loss. On top of that, my favorite ME Home Companion, Home, and Cottage Living. What's a girl to read---the back of the cereal box! Seriously, I went to Country Home's site to email them and could not find an email address. And what about subscriptions? I received the Hallmark magazine yesterday. It is not anything I would have chosed, and I'm not sure what it is replacing. I might have to find a step program to help with my withdrawal because I am a decorating magazine addict.
With this news Blogs have become even more important. There are fresh ideas on-line, and although I enjoy my magazines, I also enjoy reading the blogs.
I just completed this custom painting for a cheerleader. The color scheme of the room is red and hot pink. I think it turned out cute.
