In response to Richard’s lighthouse challenge, here is my painting of the Jupiter, Florida lighthouse done in pen and watercolor.

I must admit, I’ve been quite lethargic lately due to the heat. I forgot all about the lighthouse challenge and then had to paint it in a few hours. I mean, it’s not like he presented the challenge in APRIL or anything.

I used some pen for details which I don’t normally do, but I liked the way it came out. AND, I did NOT over work it.

What?  What’s up with that yellow brick road you ask?    No clue.

Nevertheless…go stop by Richard‘s and see what’s happening over there.

It’s the first day of summer and my sister’s birthday. Happy Birthday Alice!

I have always said, and will continue to say ad nauseum that she is such an over-achiever that she HAD to have her birthday on the first day of summer, aka, the longest day of the year.  Well longest in the northern hemisphere. MY birthday is cleverly hidden at the end of December….better for me to nap when it’s cold and dark.

It’s the first day of summer and already I’m too hot. I don’t do well in the heat. Unless of course I’m at a beach on a tropical isle holding a drink with an umbrella in it. But walking around the city in the heat and humidity is not for me. A friend recently said that she waits all year for this weather. I wait all year for this weather to go away.

The woman with the hat is finished. SHE looks like she likes the summer. She would probably request a table outside in one of those trendy restaurants in my neighborhood that now have seating on the sidewalk. Ugh! I would so prefer being inside in the a/c.

Today is also my sister’s birthday. And its a BIG BIRTHDAY!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I’ve always said (and I’ll say it again just in case someone hasn’t heard it) that she is such an overachiever she had to have her birthday on the longest day of the year. Well, if anyone deserves a birthday on the longest day of the year it’s her. I am an underachiever and my birthday is at the end of December. The days are shorter and colder and I’m ready for bed by 9:30 pm, so it actually works out well.

A quick topic change…the wordpress blogosphere got quieter yesterday for a little while. That’s because 4 of us “wordpress” people were all together for a visit. Bonnie was up from St. Croix visiting with Judy, Mary, and me which allowed us a reason (even though we didn’t need one) to visit, eat, drink and laugh and laugh. We were only missing one person and our little gathering would have been complete. It was fun.

Now I have to go finish watching a show about how a super volcano possibly caused the plague during the dark ages.  Fascinating stuff.
