Fun and friends

This is the little painty project for a friend's birthday that I alluded to in yesterday's post. Another family portrait in Babushka form. No, the family in question does not have a chipmunk as a pet. Actually this is my artist's interpretation of their (enormous, actually, as far as I'm concerned) black german shepherd. I'm quite happy with how it turned out and was very excited to gift it this morning.

I spent a lovely day today with some dear friends from university days and their kids. It's so good to spend time with people who you've known for years and years, and knew you when you were young and very silly, and still like you anyway! If any of you are reading this post, THANK YOU for a great day and long standing friendship!
