Bloggity Blog Blog Blog

Two, two TWO posts in one day! It was a big day...in a weird, ambiguous sort of way. Nothing really happened, but we did lots of stuff.

The biggest news of the day is this.... MY MAGIC SHOES CAME. People... this is huge. I have been pining away for these shoes for over a year. My dear, dear Mother has gifted me my MBT's at long last. I am oh so very tempted to display 'before and after' photos of my rear end just to prove that these shoes are too legit to quit, but I will spare you the grisly reality of my current booty situation. I am now armed with my pedometer and my magic shoes and I am ready and willing to tackle the miles ahead on foot... leading to a moderately decent looking bottom line at the end of the road. Make sense? Or am I delirious and making no sense at all? It matters not... I know what I am doing. I am a pretend professional.

Other than that we have a few new paintings. I picked up my brushes for the first time in a couple of months and this is the result...



I worked from a photo from some place or another we have been in the past few years. I have a file of "good tree pictures" saved just for this purpose.

Billy has done a few new ones this week.





Both of his are from the Pinckney Refuge next door to where we are camped out. I love the moodiness of that first one.

Tonight we had a dinner worthy of a meals on wheels posting... Mesquite Grilled Tofu Steaks with Louisiana Cajun Hot Veggies and Wild Rice. Billy is on a hot sauce kick and has been buying up new ones to try out. This one was my fave so far. It's pretty hot but has a great flavor.

We are gearing up to hit the road in a few days and our next location has no internet so I may be MIA for about 5 days or so. If we can hunt down a coffee house with WIFI we will be all set...but otherwise we are deep in the woods and fighting for our very lives against the biting gnats of South Carolina.

A few random thoughts today:

you certainly deserve magic shoes for saving Mr.Froggie....they are a just reward

dinner looks tasty

I am all about your new painting.....I was sad when you laid the brush down and I see that you are revitalized!.....must be the shoes

I dig the guy on the hot sauce bottle......I am now considering "hot sauce bottle posing" as a future retirement option

Bernadette....there is a link to the shoes within the text of the post. If you click the big brown text which reads "MY MAGIC SHOES CAME!" It'll take you to a pic of them. If this is not what you are asking for but really are looking for a pic of me wearing them.... well, I will see what I can conjure up for you. They are a bit goofy looking on. Sort of like big puffy, inflatible feet.

I have a pic of the most recent necklace...will post it soon. Thanks for the compliment on the new painting too! Miss you!
