I am not much of a cook and we have a lot of restrictions so it is difficult to come up with something we all can eat but today I am going to take the time to cook a pot roast! I have a great recipe that doesn’t have any ingredients that are off out lists.
I love to eat and we have a saying in our family that a lot of people misunderstand. After a great meal one of us asks if we are fat and happy! The word fat is just used to mean so full we feel bigger, not really fatter. Anyway, I intend to be fat and happy later on today.

The other day I posted on Facebook that I had received a very nasty message which I accidentally marked as spam and then it disappeared. I wanted to report this vulgar message so I was sorry I hit the spam button.
A number of Facebook friends posted supportive comments and I am grateful. It is great to be connected with friends on the internet! They are a big help!

I did film another Youtube and put the raw version on Facebook. I am editing it now and will put it here when that is done. I got away today to do a little swimming! That was great. Indoor pools are a lot of fun. I did laps while I watched a swimming class of screaming elementary students. I think the pool is their idea of a great class room!

I am determined to film another Youtube today. I still can’t figure out my Star software so I won’t be making any Demo videos until I can get some help. Hope to get that going soon but I did manage to complete my third Skyline Beauty painting! I especially like the yellow accents on this one so I entitled it Roanoke Sparkle.

Because I am so “focused” as a lot of people call artists, I am not always up on the latest slang. I love word play and like to see these new sayings. One I have never understood is ,”Put on your big girl pants”. It is a cute saying but how are pants going to help anything?
I asked Clyde about the saying and he said, what I thought he would say, that the pants are a symbol of maturity. You put on your big girl pants so you can be tough.
Okay, that is what I thought it meant, but then why did someone post this? Put on your big girl pants and if that doesn’t work, put on your granny pants. I really don’t think granny pants would be tougher. Although the granny on Beverly Hillbillies really could kick up a storm! So maybe pants do make a difference! LOL
I have finished the second painting in my new series, Skyline Beauty! The first one focused on the skyline to the right of the Wachovia Tower and this one it to the right where the star can be seen on Mill Mountain. I wanted this one to express visual joy and beauty with the swirling colors. I think I succeeded. On to the next one! Cheers!

I decided to join Tumblr and I really like their sense of humor. After I posted five times I got a cute email. Congratulations on your five posts! After a million you won’t have any feeling in your fingers!
I guess we are all looking forward to computers that we can talk to like in Star Trek. Oh computer, you do all the work and I can just gab away. Do you think we will become hoarse if that happens? I would like to give it a try!
I was in a really bad mood this morning but I decided to do what my Dad always said to do. Either be miserable and enjoy yourself or get out of that bad mood. Since I don’t enjoy being miserable I am now in a great mood and ready to attack all my computer chores with both hands. The computer will not be thrown out the window today!
Since I was lower than a snake’s belly I thought my Ying Yang Party would be a great painting to post today! Cheers and don’t forget about my Special Promotions below that end tomorrow!
My friends and I had a great Line Dancing Performance at an Assisted Living facility! Such a sweet audience! One of the ladies had a broken foot but she said when she was better she would dance with us.
Our great teacher, Cass Long brought gifts for everyone there. We gave out funky socks, cards, and chocolate.
That was our last 2015 performance and we ended on a great note or foot if that makes more sense!
Happy Holidays to everybody and Merry Christmas to those that celebrate it!

With the exception of a few hours I have been working all day and it is time to quit! I completed a new Suggestions painting and did a tremendous amount of work on the computer. Got to relax! Hope everyone has a great Saturday night!
I am just about ready for Christmas! Cards will go out today and I am going to paint as soon as I finish all my chores.
The Bird Man will be on a Christmas Bird Count tomorrow and will be getting up at 4:30 to work all day cataloging different species. Since that is the time he gets up to go to work it is no problem but our son is going, too.
Hope he can rise and shine at 4:30!
I am in a festive mood so I thought I would put up a balloon painting from my Suggestions Gallery! Have a great day!
