My week in pictures

I gave you all a sneak peek of this painting in progress and it is now on the mantel in my family room.

It replaced this.

My husband and I often indulge in a bottle of Moet with pickled ginger to nibble on as we sip. 

Maybe you saw all of this on Instagram. It was a two bottle week.

Wednesday I got 8 inches chopped off my hair. I am not loving it. Photos below.
Thursday, I removed all of my canvases from Etsy and updated my site overall with a cleaner look.

Friday was all about D.C.

Lunch at Loi Thai's incredible house with Nancy and Bethany was a wonderful treat.

Then it was off to Northern Virginia to return the bar stools to Kristen. :(

Then I joined hundreds of thousands of other people in an episode of "Epic Friday Southbound Summer Traffic" in which I took many selfies.

This one was in a silly little holdup for some police motorcade.

What normally takes an hour took three and a half hours. Seriously. 31/2 hours!
Its so absurd that I find it

This was around two hours in
 Its all good. Its just practice for my 9/10 hour drive on Thursday to get Guitar Hero off to college.

How was your week?

Well I like your new hair and I looove your new painting over the mantel. I have been trying to keep my head above water this week. That's the best I can hope for!!

Dear Kerry 1st I adore your hair, it is beautiful and fun as well!

Your new painting is so sophisticated and has a great deal of depth.

I heard your lunch at Loi's was wonderful!!

We have had a Family Crisis week, all will be okay though!

All the Best!

I actually like your new hair cut Kerry! You look so young! Been battling a virus all week so not much going on on my end. Did finish my powder room a week ago.

I love your new piece...and your hair. :)

God, that sounds like Calgary traffic - a city built for 300,000 holding over a million. You have to leave at least an hour everywhere you go, only if it's 2 miles away. I love your new short(er) hair. A classic bob always makes me happy. Soooo envious you got to visit Loi and meet Tom and the little dogs and see their lovely house!! Hope it was fun.

The day you leave them at college is not your favorite day, but it's the natural way of things. Maybe it will make for an interesting picture.
