I am really anxious for this nasty, cold, icy and snowy weather to be over for the year.
For one thing, it keeps me inside....I not only don't drive in this weather (I had to do that
for so many years that I just don't anymore)...I also don't try to maneuver the sidewalks
and parking lots more than I absolutely have to. One slip and there goes a hip!!
What I'm most anxious to get out and do is...go thrifting! I LOVE thrift shops...especially for
the frames I like to use with my smaller paintings. These frames usually have so much more
'character' than the frames I can find in the art supply shops. Every now and then, during the
warmer weather, my wonderful neighbor has 'endless' yard sales. He's an elderly widower
that likes to go to estate auctions then bring the stuff he buys and have a yard sale.
I have found so many really wonderful frames from these sales.
Yes...I'm anxious for spring to hurry and get here...the walls are beginning to close in.
