We have a new artist in the house! We welcome Rita Carroll. Rita is an active member of Art Visions. We have been very fortunate to have access to the talent at Art Visions! This month’s artist, Rita has always loved art but didn’t seriously pick up a paint brush until her husband gifted her with a set of oils. Today she prefers watercolors but still paints with oils as well. Rita has been recognized by her peers in art shows for more than a decade earning judges choice and first place ribbons in shows from Smith Mountain Lake to Bath County. Stop by to see Rita’s art or contact her through her website.
Generally in the winter months we do a bit of home repair. My to-do list continues and Jack grumbles a bit as he works down the list as opposed to spending every waking minute in the hangar working on his RV-10 airplane building project. I must say, however that his airplane project is coming along!
On the house project list, he is currently working on cutting out the end of the railing on the front porch so we can access the chickens easier.
These little cluckers have to be locked up in their coop each night to stay safe and warm and then let out each morning; essentially sunset and sunrise are their preferences! This opening will put us somewhat closer to the coop, especially on chilly mornings! More to come on this project!
We don’t have a Christmas tree yet but we have hung our stockings and gotten the pup groomed for the holidays! This coming weekend, we will get the tree and hopefully start to trim it between two performances of our Christmas Cantata – A Christmas Rose” we will sing at Bethlehem United Methodist Church.
