Did not get to Cades Cove Today RAIN!

Some days I guess we should just stay in bed. Best made plans of mice and men day, got up early to fix us some ham biscuits to take with us to Cades Cove, raining, so we waited, watched the weather channel decided to fix breakfast, ate, decided we would go tomorrow, good thing as the fog rolled in later in the day but we did go to the Capt. Galley for a late lunch, good sea food, took a back road on the way home, mercy me! Longhorn cattle some with calf's got a few shots of them, these guys had some awesome horns.

Try again tomorrow hopefully some good shots in the Cove, will show up on the blog later this week.

New Easter birthday card.

working on card designs

Finally getting to do some design work on greeting cards, these will be submitted to card publishers with the hope they will like them, I really like doing winter scenes best. Oh well I did posies before.
Still working on a big 12 x 24 canvas spruce limbs with cones with some snow birds, will post when I get it finished. I guess I like working with a one hair brush on spruce needles.
Since my first show is not until July I still have plenty of time, just need to really get mind on painting.

This Saturday Bill and I are spending it in Cades Cove, got a new digital camera looking forward to getting some good photos for reference. Probably eat supper in Gatlinburg.

More snow on Feb 3rd

Guess we are finally having winter, more snow in East Tennessee today and calling for more for the next 2 days. We have done the grocery run, got out the crock pot, fixed a roast beef, this just in case the electricity goes off. Of course any left-overs will be soup in a couples of days.
I will get a chance to do more painting tomorrow, working on a 12 x 24 canvas landscape of the mountains with spruce cones and junco's, love those little snow-birds.

Febuary 2nd snow

Snow, finally in East Tennessee, Bill and I left about 9: am for Knoxville this morning, it was just sprinkling rain which quickly turn to mush on the window. About the time we hit Knoxville we had snow and the temperature was falling rapidly, since we were heading for the other end of the city, the farther we drove the worst it got, Dang, we need a Best Buy on this end. Pulled into a Cracker Barrel for breakfast by the time we had ate the parking lot was about 3" of the white stuff and huge flakes coming down at fast pace and here we are in our HHR not the big SUV with 4 wheel drive. Murphy's Law strikes again. We hurried to Best Buy Bill got my birthday present New Kodak camera, now the snow was slacking up a little, stopped and filled up with gas (needed some weight) Bill said. He's driving so a fill up is fine. HOME Safe, Thank you. Now I am trying to figured out this new camera, even though my birthday not until the 14th, he is letting me learn how to operate it. Took me 1/2 hour to figure out where the memory card went. So now its charging. I can watch this beautiful snow falling and read instruction book. Look for some snow pix's tomorrow.
