The kids are back in school and I am left with a nervous energy that is not really good for painting. The first week all I could do was clean and now this week I am forcing myself to paint. I always feel better when I do.
I worry a little more than I should. I get that from my Mother. Thank you Mom.

This painting is called "Morning Stretch". I will have this one and hopefully another up tonight on ebay.



I am also so sad that summer is over. I feel like it was a little wasted because of the heat. Most days were around 100 with the heat index 110. It was hard to get out and do the things we normally do.

I am trying to look forward to the fall now.






Here are my babies waiting for the bus. Yes, the bus. I miss driving them in the morning, but it will save gas. We are already working on school work every night. Waaaaa.

Love your painting so cute!!

My kids go back to school next Thursday, we are having our last day trip out tomorrow,(we had one day trip out per week as we couldn't afford a summer holiday this year) we have had a rubbish summer here it's been grey and rainy most of the time and when it's not.... it's been grey and humid instead, we had very few hot sunny days, such a shame!!

I'm so glad you're painting again....cuz this is so cute! It seems the only time I can actually clean successfully is when everyone is out of the house, too.

Best Wishes,
Cameron

What a cute morning stretch! ^_^ I love when kitties do that. I know what you mean by this summer vacation being wasted on the heat, so hard to enjoy outdoor things.
I can't wait for our outing Friday. It should be fun.

Thank you for the tree love, I was trying hard to do something 'different' with them, I get so bored of painting trees sometimes ;)
