November 20:
I'm Thankful This 12yo Is Healthy!

Rocky (who is four months older than the boy minion) is a happy, healthy 12-year-old puppy and he passed another wellness visit with flying colors. The vet always asks if he's slowing down and I always reply, "How would we know?"

He still eats like he's starving, follows the sunbeam around for his naps and bugs me for his daily walks.

He still loves every human being he meets, prefers a fence between himself and other dogs and thinks things that move by themselves are scary – leaves blowing in the wind especially.

He now hides in the bathtub during thunderstorms, prefers to eat his dinner off the floor instead of from his bowl and knows when it's 7:30pm and time for his nightly Dentastix.

Love him!

November 19: I'm Grateful for New Clients

I didn't get a drawing done, but Christmas is going to be cool!

November 18: I'm Thankful I'm Caught Up
Drawing Beanie Boos

Now I can get back to Skylanders. Oh Joy!

November 17:
I'm Grateful for 12 years of Santa

I just wish we could have had a few more.

BTW, the letter is cobbled together from multiple versions I've found over the years. I'm not that good of a writer. When I saw an explanation I liked, I added it to the file. I've had it mostly ready to go for three years, but yesterday is the first time I was asked the big question.

"Is Santa real? And mom, don't lie," the girl said to me. In the car. On the way to the dentist.

Too bad the letter was at home on my computer.

November 16: I'm Thankful For Car Rides

The hubster and I spent most of Sunday alone in the car traveling the highways between Strongsville and Centerville, Ohio. We talked the whole time.

Well, except for that stretch of 70 and 270 when he found the Columbus station broadcasting the Browns game coverage. I don't remember it. I must have dozed off and got my nap during the game after all.

I'm Thankful I Packed My Sketchbook

I enjoyed chatting with the ladies who had tables near me, but we had more time to fill than any of us wanted. Visitors were mostly looking and we each had only a handful of sales. I don't think the weather kept them away, but it was an awfully small parking lot.

Oh well. I had plenty of time to get the front and back cover of Sketchbook #43 decorated and even started on the inside cover. 

It was better than helping with homework and doing laundry, so I'm going to count it as a success.

I'll Be In Westlake Tomorrow.

I'll be hanging out in Westlake tomorrow selling my hand-painted ceramic creations, made-to-order personalized items and prints of select paintings.

I'm also having a SALE on pendants featuring my floral illustrations.

If you're in the area, stop by and say hello!

November 14: I'm Thankful For Flannel.

It's funny how Ohio weather can go from 60's and sun on Monday to 30's and snow on Friday.

Well, it's not really funny, but I'd rather laugh than cry this early in the winter season.
