Yes, we know, it has been ages since we've updated the blog! It's not that we haven't done anything interesting - on the contrary, we've just been so busy with everything!
Faith, Alyssa and I have been working for my brother's company, Mirror Landscapes, this year. He's had us weeding, spreading mulch and trimming bushes. The extra income is nice, but some of these days of working have been HOT!
Recently, after one sweltering afternoon's labor, we decided to cool off with a water fight.
We didn't bother with water balloons; our water jugs suited us just fine!
Faith is poised to strike...
Oops, water in the eyes!
Ah, it was so refreshing!

Over 40 area artists donated their time and talent for this event. During the day the artists worked on a painting; in the evening the public was invited to come and watch the artwork be completed. Each painting was then auctioned off with the proceeds going the The Next Picture Show, which is a non-profit gallery.
I spent most of my day in front of my own painting trying to complete it in time, but I also enjoyed walking around watching the other artists work. There were so many unique styles... Hard at work...
I started painting at noon and finished by 6:00. Our delicious lunch and dinner were catered for us, but around 3:00 Faith brought me...sustenance! Lindt Excellence - "Intense Orange". Mmm...rich, dark chocolate, slivers of almonds and a wonderful hint of orange!
There were so many talented artists that participated in this fundraiser. The evening's auction was quite successful!
