Thanksgiving is right around the corner!  I decided to reopen my other shop on Etsy called Pease Porridge Hot to list my paintings of things that I see rather than imagine.  I love painting from old and new pictures and stills.  So this shop will be the place for those kind of paintings.  I will still paint parties and kitties and list those on my Hot Tamale shop.  I hope I can juggle both of these.  We will see.  I wish Etsy would let you combine them into one email.    Or do they and I just don't know about it?  Oh well, this one is called "Helen's House" and it is listed at Pease Porridge Hot if you would like a better look. The new link is on the side. :)

This is the largest party I have been to.  It is a 16X20.

 Now that the kids are old enough to keep up, we have been hitting the bike trails.  The last couple weekends we went riding on the Katy Trail. 

It winds all through the beautiful hills and river plains of the Lewis and Clark expedition  There are plenty of little wineries and beer gardens to stop along the way for refreshments.

This is my mountain bike from before kids. I do not think I will be riding down mountains anytime soon. I will save this bike for Rose.
This is my new bike with a rack and basket for all our goodies. A MUST when out and about with food allergies.  Anthony is still hanging on to his dairy allergy, but I have learned to make my own Jerky and it is actually really good.  Behind us is a spooky haunted house for sale with a beautiful view. Wouldn't it be so fun to have a party there?

This is the time of year for hiking, biking and camping and that is exactly what we have been doing.  I was not sure about the camping part, but now i am ready to move my bed outside.  I hated missing the full moon last night.  I so wish it would have been on a weekend so we could have been gathered around the campfire all night enjoying it.
