This is so weird...
I woke up the other morning at about 5:30 am--after a dream. It was super vivid. I saw a painting AND I saw exactly how to paint it--what colors to layer in order to get the effect. So I crawled out of bed and started painting. I painted most of the day (sorry kids) and ended up with something I really love. So, introducing my clouds (as seen in strange dream).
I told this story to my friend and she told me she had the same kind of thing happen with a book idea. She is now 200 pages into it. Weird! The mind is such a mystery.
P.S. I did make pickles--or rather my Friday girls did (insert evil laugh here). Almost perfect. I'm not crazy about the pickling spice I used. I'd like to try again, but it's probably too late in the season now.
P.P.S. On Friday St Louis At Home magazine is coming over to write about my Friday Group. How funny is that.
