It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 05): 08/05/19
Last week my husband was out of town on business. It was just me and the teens. On Sunday, my first day solo parenting, I did something to my back and now a week later it's still sore. Not to the point that I can't function but it is annoying.
On Tuesday Tortuga had to get here teeth cleaned. As she is a feisty cat, she ended up needing full anesthesia. That meant a night at the vet's to recover. She's home and in good spirits, though she did spend Wednesday and Thursday moping.
In other news, the Sketchbook Project book I did back in spring is finally scanned and is up for viewing on line. Also if you happen to be in California in September, the book will be part of the traveling show. It will be at:
The Other Art Fair - LA
I've now put twelve hours into my "Let's Eat" painting. I'm pretty much done with the cat and the turkey. I need to finish the mid ground, add in the thing they are both interested in, and finally put in the foreground plants. I want to get it done by the end of the month, as it's a birthday present for my oldest.

Thanks. They were fun to make.

I like How To Catch A Star! That was one I used to read with my son when he was little.
The paper plate turtles look cool! May be a holiday crafts idea while the kids are off school!

How to Catch a Star was part of our mask making exercise at camp. The turtles were also fun to make.

I'm sorry to hear about your back. I'll be praying you get relief from the pain.
Love the colors in "Let's Eat." Such a wonderful painting.
Hope you enjoy all your books. Kneaded to Death and Booking the Crook caught my eye.
