One of my most recent watercolors, "Shiny Things." I was challenging myself to work with glass and silver.  It was so fun that I did another.

This one is "Shiny Things Two."   Both are available for purchase here.

More shiny things.  Cindy Loo Who and I escaped and took our snowshoes to Harriman State Park.  The weather was perfect. The sun was making dappled shadows on the fresh snow as we walked along getting in some good chat time.

Even the ducks and swans were enjoying the sun.

We saw squirrel tracks, bunny tracks, mouse tracks and then this big trail groomer left a BIG set of tracks for the cross country skiers.

We can take a five month break in leg shaving.

 Shivering can count as exercise.

When we milk the cows, we get ice cream. 
When we milk the brown cows - we get chocolate ice cream.

We don’t look fat in warm clothes.

Our snowman made carrot cake but it tastes like boogers.


We have to carry around hammers and chisels so we could get out of our parkas.

Words freeze in the air. If we want to hear what someone has said,
 we have to grab a handful of sentences and take them in by the fire.

When we’re wearing gloves we have to use our nose to answer our cell phones.

We have to stop eating with metal cutlery because some people have walked around for days with spoons or forks stuck to their tongues.


When a streaker froze in mid-streak the town council just stuck a plaque on him and pretended he was a Greek statue until spring.

The dogs are wearing cats.

The lunch room is serving soup on a stick.

Terrorists are starting to stockpile weapons-grade hot chocolate.

The dogs had to put jumper cables on the rabbits - just to get them running.

We pulled everything out of the freezer and huddled inside it to warm up.

The Husky Association was making emergency service calls to get the dog teams started! 

A random joke---

"Gimme a chocolate cone!" demands the customer as she walks into an ice cream parlor.
"We're all out of chocolate," says the counterman.
"Then I'll take a chocolate in a cup with chocolate sauce and..."
"Chocolate and vanilla combo?"
The counterman sighs, "Ma'am, do you see the 'straw' in strawberry?"
"Do you see the 'van' in vanilla?"
"Do you see the 'frick' in chocolate?"
"There's no 'frick' in chocolate."
"That's what I keep telling you!"
