Uncle Jack O’Lantern

Hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day! :grin:   We had a cookout for Brandon and my Dad.  The weather was good we got lucky and it didn’t rain.  We had some yummy food and Brandon wanted an ice cream cake so luckily I didn’t have to bake.

Last week was crazy busy and it seems like I got nothing done!  I did get a small canvas painted, “Uncle Jack (O’Lantern),” just in time for the The Forth of July!  He is painted on a 8 inch square canvas.  I painted him to look like a vintage Halloween Jack-O-Lantern and patriotic for The Forth of July.  I finished him this morning and will be listing him on Ebay.

Now that’s done I am working on a couple of different clocks and a large wooden bowl.  Still working out the details and they should keep me busy for a while.  I hope to have one of them done by next weekend but we’ll see what this week brings.

Summer’s Here!

Summer’s officially here it started off a little bit bumpy for me.  The day after our son’s last day of school I got sick and and am now beginning to feel better.  Lots of things I wanted to do and places I had planned on going that I had to pass on which made me a little upset but nothing could be done about it.   I will just have to do them now!

Now I started painting some projects that have been looming and have a bunch more I want to get moving on.  I also re-listed my Bat Wing II Clock on Ebay

UPDATE:  SOLD!

We have been busy with yard work and gardening.  I really need to get a load of mulch but really despise moving and spreading it.  Maybe this week I will get motivated to do it because I am already tired of weeding!

This year I bought trough-like planters for on the decks and they are begining to fill in nicely

I noticed a trend in my flower preference this year, Orange!

I am really liking all the orange flowers.

Our garden is starting to come to life, too.   It is amazing to watch everything grow from seed into plants.  The only problem this year with the garden is Molly

Every time I go down to water or weed she believes she is helping me by digging at the plants!

Then the most amazing thing happened yesterday!  I baked a Banana Cream Pie.  I figured I had better take a picture of it because I haven’t done that in over a decade!  The last one was a complete disaster.  This one was actually pretty darn good.
