Thank you for the Birthday Wishes. I am just now reading them. Last Sunday on my our to pack up my booth at Festival of the Cranes Fine Art Show in Socorro, Maddie and I had an accident.
It had snowed the night before. I was driving about 45 when we came upon a small white car, no lights, driving about 20 in the center of the road. My choice was either slam on the brake and spin or try to pass. A quick decision was made to try to pass. I hit a patch of ice and spun around off the right side of the road. We hit a ditch, bounced and hit anther one and flipped our F150 diesel van onto the driver's side. The van is totaled. Maddie wasn't injured at all. I have a compressor fracture of the T11 vertebrae. I am in a body cast and will be for the next 2-6 months.
Your prayers are much appreciated. We are both fortunate the accident wasn't worse. I am thankful the other car wasn't involved.
I have just added another page...Where To Find Faberjane Eggs. It's a list of current art shows I an involved in and art galleries that carry Faberjane Eggs.
Wow, November already. What happened to July? When I was a child I looked forward to Thanksgiving almost as much as Christmas. I love the fall colors of Michigan, my home state. Maple trees turn every color of yellow-green, magenta, rust, gold and brown. REAL maple syrup came from REAL maple trees. Oh, and the black walnuts! A couple weeks ago I found some at Costco, of all places. They are harvested wild. I guess the trees don't do well in a controlled setting. I bake them into oatmeal cookies, banana nut bread, pumpkin bread and toss them on vanilla ice cream. Yum!
So what does all this have to do with pysanka? Color! Some my newest goose eggs are dyed in fall colors. Living in New Mexico I don't get to see vibrant colors as in Michigan. We have trees here but they all seem to turn the same shade of yellow-gold. Please take a few minuets to check them out. Click on the "Goose II" tab and scroll down. Let me know what you think.
