Gloomy Saturday

Cloudy and cold today, they're actually muttering that there maybe some snowflakes in our future.  Nothing to stick, but snow.  I would like to remind them that we live in the deep south, but an hour's drive from Florida.  It should not snow here.
Busy week.  Working on a crochet project that I of course ran out of yarn for and had to wait for Amazon to save me.  It should be finished tomorrow.
I finished my painting on the black canvas and I'm rather pleased with it.  Next is a stork in flight, no baby though.
Looked for something different to cook this week and I found a recipe for lemon/shrimp risotto.  It turned out pretty good, but I need to tweet the recipe a bit for next time.  A little more lemon and a little more white wine.

Time to go play with Mozart.  He was in a good mood yesterday and I'm hoping he'll behave himself today.

  3. We are wishing it would snow a little here in NE Texas. We usually get a good snow at least once a year, but so far nothing yet.

  7. Love your painting!
    Dinner sounded very yummy - I'll give it a try too - always looking for fresh ideas!
    I wondered about snow in Florida - I thought it had a warm climate all year - you can tell I'm not from the US area!!!!

    1. It shouldn't snow, but it sometimes it forgets and it does.

  10. Wonderful painting Janet! I keep forgetting to ask (and maybe I missed a post), but did Mac paint the portrait currently on your header? I really like the facial expression in that one. We had snow today off and one, but I think there might be a full inch out there now! I don't think ours will be around long though. If I lived in the South, I think a little snow could be fun ;)

  11. What a wonderful effect painting on black, it's stunning. I'm not a lover of risotto but I do like shrimps.
