Monday, Jan. 3, 2011

Here we are at New Years Eve, a quiet dinner with some neighbor friends wishing you all a good year to come. Well the dinner wasn’t very quiet and it dragged on until 3:30 in the morning! It was a lot of fun talking with old friends, and yes we all felt it the next day. It was rather hard to get out of bed, especially when we had to face a sea of empty bottles and glasses everywhere.

We did manage to get up to Mountain Dell later on in the afternoon to burn off some of that holiday cheer. A few laps around the cross country ski track made me feel the over indulgence of the night before. That Saturday evening it was a Toy Story Three on DVD, beer and pizza. From the crowds of the pizza place to the line at Blockbusters, I have a feeling everyone was thinking the same thought.

This morning it was back to reality. Like hitting the wall, that early morning shock of getting the household up for school again, a process that was long forgotten about from the holiday.

Today I painted out the small boat and brought up the colors on the right side in this piece. Those changed I felt helped it a little.
