For about a year now, my friend Karen and I have been taking art classes together on Wednesday nights. When structured classes are not in session, we meet at her house after work to paint, chat and laugh, sometimes until midnight.
This week we officially moved to Monday nights, her husband is home at night now (truck driver) so he plays his guitar while we paint. Quite artsy, right?
Sometimes things can get down right silly around there. This week we were joined by Racine ... the Karaoke Queen. God love her, she is about the homeliest looking thing you would want to meet but ... is she ever a hoot. The camera loves her, well sort of.
With art night now on Monday, dinner and Commander in Chief with my sister and brother in law on Tuesday nights, guitar class and Adobe layout and design classes on Wednesday nights, continued Photo Shop Classes on Thursday nights, on top of a 6 day work week ... I'm wondering when I'm going to find time to write and post photos or blog jog here in J-Land.
The two photos above are from last night at my sister's house. OMG do we love artichokes. The photo on the right is of a few of her many African Cichlids in her huge 250 gallon tank we put up on Thanksgiving. After the initial cycle process and some of the problems that can bring, everything seems to be balancing well and she's got a tank full of happy fish.
Next week I'll take photos of the nursery. She has an entire room in her house reserved for housing and tending the babies that these prolific little beauties produce. There are fish everywhere, African Cichlids anyone?
Let me get myself into the shower now, before I make myself late for work. I may have to start using a timer when I sit down at the computer, we all know how easy it is to loose track of time when we start playing around here in J-Land.
