WOOHOO... yesterday was a free day. I don't take many of those. Vicki picked me up and we drove to Longview and went to the mall.  WOOHOO... Mt Vernon is only a tiny northeast Texas town, but Longview has a mall, a Target, a Best Buy and many other familiar stores to us transplanted from Dallas. It was also only about 40 minutes to get there.  A bit better than the 90 minutes to Dallas.  Cannot wait to try out the Mexican Restaurant by the mall next trip with Terry.

We spent three or four hours in Dillards as we shopped until we almost dropped.  I only have two things to return that did not go with a skirt I was dealing with... and as we made our way out of Dillards to the car, Vicki said, "WAIT, we have to go down here." and she took me to another store she loved and things were not badly priced... I bought a Christmas Sweater Jacket there.   We looked rather comical leaving the mall with our arms stuffed full of clothes on hangers and bags and bags and bags.  My feet truly hurt.  I have never said that before in my life.  We were there shopping for five hours straight.

I am praying canvas arrives today that I will be up painting on most of the night. HAVE to have it finished immediately. I have negotiated for weeks with Ocean Prime Restaurants for a rather large piece for one of their Private Dining Rooms in Denver's new restaurant.    My painting will be of my  internationally collected painted pony pieces that are so popular.  I will revisit with the decorators tomorrow as we discussed quieter deeper mountain colors that did not scream out loud... the golds, rusts, dark turquoise, deep blues and greys.   Before I take off on it, I want to be sure I have the right palette up. 

Here is the painting they fell in love is the one that was featured in Cowboys and Indians Magazine in January of this year.  If you click the painting you can buy your own giclee canvas print of it from Fine Art America.   

God is every present in our the bounty He provides for us.  We seem to always want more...more than what we have, but I do not believe we take the time to truly recognize and give thanks for what we do have.  Stop and look around and count your blessings. God is good, All the Time, GOD IS GOOD.


“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” - Psalm 100:4-5
