It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 23): 12/23/19
Happy Hanukkah. Merry Christmas. As we're a blended family we celebrate both. On the first night the kids got socks. They always do and they always need them.
Bruce the Spruce is finally decorated. We use a potted tree as our Christmas tree. The rest of the year he lives in the back garden. We have two new ornaments for 2019.
My daughter is in science club at school. They've grown plants from cuttings and seeds as a fundraiser. I'm now the proud owner of two jade plants, a cilantro pot, and a basil pot.
My client went through all my sketches and picked the second courting one I had done. The orignial sketch is on Instagram.
I haven't worked on the koi painting since last week.

I think Hanukkah is such a beautiful feast. Lucky you celebrating both feasts. I think the Pride shoes are amazing. Great reading as always.

Hanukkah is a reason to eat fried food. We'll be having latkes with applesauce and sour cream later in the week.

Nice art, as always. Enjoy your holidays and your books.

Thank you. I'm taking a break from painting this week, I think. But I am doing some drawing.

Your paintings are wonderful, as always. Love the Pride Shoes. Your books look good. It reminds me that I have to get back to the Cleo Coyle series. I always enjoy it but I'm so far behind.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

I'm four books away from the current Cleo Coyle book. I like how Pride Shoes is turning out but it's a tricky one to paint. Those laces are hard.

I bet the holiday season is wonderful around your house. You celebrate it all. So much fun.
Your Pride Shoes is looking fabulous.
A new Princess Black. Wonderful!
Have a lovely week!

Pride Shoes is a tough painting because of the laces. The Princess in Black I read is from last year. The newest one is Bathtime Battle.

Bruce the Spruce gave me a chuckle. Happy holidays. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

It's probably silly to name the tree but it just sort of happened. And then the name stuck.

Have a lovely time, Sarah:). I'm impressed with the plants - that is a lovely Basil speciman. And congratulations on keeping Bruce alive from one year to the next - that is a feat!

The basil is doing well but I don't think the cilantro is going to make it.
