I love to go somewhere. I do not know where. It can be Canada I think. I have never been there so I feel some mystery. It also can be South America. But it might be dangerous. So let’s close out there. I do not like small island, therefore slightly larger one like Ireland? I am having a cup of Scottish breakfast tea in the early early morning and dreaming about my vacation which will be fun. But my reality is that new semester will start this coming Monday and need to get busy.

Many people posted beautiful sunrise pictures on the instagram. I enjoyed all those magnificent photographs. I always admire people who go to their special places and welcome the New Year. I stayed at home, filled the bird feeder, and exchanged the greetings with little birdies. I hope that it will be another quiet year with a lot of paintings.

Another year is almost gone. It was not so delightful one. There were so much natural disasters all over the world and we could not do much about them. I am hoping and praying that this coming year will be peaceful and wonderful for all of us.
I am waiting for Spring!

I filled up the bird feeders and water my plants this morning. I also sprayed this image with varnish and took it’s photo. It is such a beautiful day. I am moving very slow whatever I do. Why do I have to hurry doing anything in such a wonderful sunny morning? I am going to make a cup of tea and eat a slice of cake from last night…and then I will go outside and see if the daffodils are coming out for the early spring display.

When I was a little girl, my father brought back a Christmas tree and talked about the Santa. It was a long long time ago in Japan. We were Buddhists and not much to do with the Christmas tree. But it did not stop my father from showing pretty thing to his daughter….me! We all decorated the tree together and admired the beautiful and colorful lights. It was such a beautiful memory. When I paint those colorful ornaments, this memory always comes back and make me smile. This might be the reason why I paint so many ornaments….especially this year.

We are cooking since early morning. We are not hurry but rather enjoying tasting and looking the dishes we are making. I am also painting. So I do not know when all dishes will be ready, but it is fine with me. This Santa image is the one I just finished. I am going to paint more ornaments and bring myself into more Christmas moods.

I painted some ornaments for Christmas presents. Unexpectedly a few were sold….so I painted more. I thought that I would be bored after a few paintings with same objects. But surprisingly I am still having a fun to play with those glittery objects. Since I am off from school the rest of this week and do not have much to do, I am going to keep painting more Christmas images.
I went to the grocery shopping this morning for Thanksgiving dinner. The roads and stores were crowded and people were busily moving. I got enough foods and sweets for this week, I will not step out from our home for a while and enjoy the beautiful days quietly. Yes..outside is gorgeous.
