Quiet Thanksgiving day

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.

Beautiful Day

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.

Christmas ornaments

We used to have a beautiful Christmas tree every year when our child was little. Since she is now grown up and has her own place, we no longer set up a tree any more. Partially because we have three cats…very active cats and setting up a tree is a kind of not safe. But I  still love to see those beautiful ornaments here and there in our home. I took them out from the boxes and place wherever I think they look good. Even painting them is fun. I have three more ornaments painting started on my desk. I love this season of the year.

On the way to school, I turned on the radio…Christmas music! Isn’t it too early…I thought. Then I realized that I have been painting the Christmas images for at least a few weeks. I laughed at myself. But Christmas is colorful and fun. I guess that everybody like to enjoy much longer than it’s season.

The Christmas ornaments are colorful and fun to see any time of the year. If you look at them carefully, you will find most of them have cute expressions.

We have had so much natural disasters this year all over the world. Today we are off from work because of Michael. We woke up middle of the night and checked out the strong wind and rain. It was not bad here but found out that Florida got horrible hit. We are praying the safety and peace for everybody. I wanted to think about something happier and merry so that I took out the Christmas ornaments and painted them. Winter is not bad!

Spring in the South is a dream-like period. The wind is warm. All kinds of birds sing everywhere. The flower pedals cover the passage way and drift in the air. Shangri-La might exists in near Tibet, but sometimes you can find it in South Carolina.
