We mailed out our daughters packages and got a ton of snow......tomorrow is more snow hoping there are no more happenings.

Today is a day in work when I just don't want to be here. So many people have changed and they are so rude and unthinking.  I wonder why I even exist at times as I am stepped on in such a rude way almost everyday.
I really needed some brightness in my today.

Never caring what they say or do to hurt someone I am so sad.

here are Lucy and Bubba miss them so much

We will go to Montana in July to visit them both woo hoo cannot wait.

Here is a very cute picture of Askar. He belongs to my dear friend Margaretha who lives in Sweden....

Why does there have to be people in the world that are just plain rude... sometimes I wonder if they even know they act that way. Its so very hurtful.

I am lucky to have such a wonderful family and lovely friends.

Don't know where I would be without them. A new watercolor today....

to wash away that sadness

How very lucky I am to have three friends named Annie and each is so unique

and special.

Annie Colturi who I met while my two daughters were in the local high school, at that time she was working in the Orange post office and we worked on high school plays together and had a blast. I remember for Grease we went to Sals which is salvation army to get all the costumes for the play.  Also her son Matt played an awesome part in the play.   We both were fortunate to be chosen to go into NYC as chaperones, as Matt and Lucy were in the band.  Another awesome time.  Annie and I especially like floating in her pool in the summer, listening to good music, she is an amazing photographer, and we both love to paint.  She was so good to me, she hung my paintings in her brother in laws law office.  I am blessed to know her.

Then there is Annie Landry who I met many years ago at a local pottery class. We bonded immediately and have remained close kindred spirits ever since.  She has come to many a show in Gardner to support my painting..Who would have known a class like that would bring people together.  Over the years we have done many fun things together... our next venture might be.....going to Boston.....

and then there is Annie Murray who i met at a Beer tasting in New Salem, she was with a good Friend Ethan Forbes.   Ever since she too has been a friend who makes me laugh and has a spirit that is amazing.  

Had a great turnout of friends for my open house, feeling so very blessed. Thanks you to all my good pals.  Told my teacher Annie I would do something for her, I may go  into her classroom one day and introduce watercolor to all of them.

this is a painting I did of Hull this summer, the light was perfect

and I had a great seat from where we were that area of massachusetts.

The almost end to a busy week.  Looking forward to seeing friends come out and see my show. I have great signs all over the place so if someone can't find my house hmmm that should not be an issue.

Here are clam diggers its a bit dark and a building in NYC

enjoy viewing my paintings as others do

I am having a good day.... looking forward to my open studio tomorrow and the prospect that I will get exposure in a way I have never done before.  I have a good friend Annie who will sit with me she is a special ed teacher in a local school. She told me she is honored how sweet is that....

This picture reminds me of Annie she is just like a kid.....

so that's why I post a fair day.  I will serve her some Broccoli Cheese soup tomorrow during the day to give her sustaniance.

don't know how to spell that one.... ha ha 

Well to all my friends out there Margaretha and Patty I hope you like my posts please comment as no one ever has.
