Getting Ready to Celebrate
We’ve been painting, sprucing up the yard, cleaning the house, and stocking the kitchen for a visit with our Philly kids for the Thanksgiving holiday. There will be 14 here on Thanksgiving day, give or take. My Champagne season has been starting earlier and earlier each year. Now it starts on Halloween and goes through New Year’s. So yes, there’s plenty of Champagne. The wonderful thing we’re doing this time is buying a ready-baked turkey. That will free up my oven for far more interesting goodies like sweet potatoes and pies.
On the art news front, I’ve agreed to teach classes in my studio starting some time in January. I was talking with two friends just the other day and told them I’d been thinking about doing it. So they immediately said “Sign us up!” One has a hair salon and she told me she would put out flyers for more students. Wow. Instant art class. Now all I have to do is decide how to approach it. Will I want each student to work on whatever they want to do, or do I structure it more? Haven’t decided yet. This has been a long time coming. I just needed someone to kick me into gear.
