Beautiful Evening

Gorgeous sunset for the family

Sunday night we gathered at my sister’s house to celebrate (belatedly) my father’s birthday. It was just my dad, my sister, my brother-in-law, my daughter, and I. Dinner was fantastic. I wish I could describe the scalloped potatoes adequately. And the ham. But I can’t. They were just too delicious for words.

My daughter and I did most of the dishes and talked. She’s doing much better, moving slowly, but she’s heading back to school on Wednesday. There’s an awful lot of work for her to catch up on and she needs to take finals still. I think she’ll do okay. She looks wonderful and I saw her beautiful smile more than a couple of times. My sis and bro-in-law have taken great care of her — not just during her recovery, but always.

I should have known it was going to be a good night when I walked outside to wait for my dad and saw the sunset. My dad hadn’t shown up yet, so I went back inside, grabbed the camera, rushed back out, shot a few frames, got the camera back in the house, and was outside again in time to see my dad driving up.

Oh, and as I the other day, Leanne has completed Mojo’s portrait. It’s incredible! She even captured that funny little crooked smile both of my children occasionally display. I love it! Truth be told, I love it so much that I’m going to start saving up so I can afford to have her draw Little Dude, too. I want a matching set of portraits of the kids. (If I suddenly disappear for a month or two, it’s because I gave up cable for the drawing.)


  1. I’m saving up for another of Leanne’s works as well. I was so blessed to win the contest and have the portrait of Tess done… I of course want Zoe’s done too. ;)

    That sunset is magnificent! :shock:

  2. That portrait IS beautiful and really looks like her! I really like her pet portraits, too. I see there’s a pet portrait on the line at her site this week.

  4. Lovely! There was a little bit of color coming through the fog this morning, but that’s about it. As horrible as it sounds, we could use some rain around here…

  5. We need rain down here. You — you need to get rid of some of that excess water first.
