I'll start with the second part of my title. 28 years ago today our third beautiful daughter was born! What a glorious day that was! And what fun it's been ever since.
The next three pictures are on the windows that are in the living room area just inside the front door, so adjacent to the rainy day pictures. I thought sitting around a campfire, roasting hotdogs and marshmallows and watching lightning bugs would be a fun summer time photo. Note the orange T on the little boys shirt. That's for the University of Tennessee. Football time is approaching quickly.
Now, as you can see the door into the dining room is to the side of the living room windows. Of course I had to paint a great big sun for summer. Several of the residents liked the frog on the front door so I thought they might like a turtle, too. Summertime fun in the park with swinging and slidingNext is a "man" for Margaret who sits in the chair in front of this window at every meal. You can see the back of her chair int he photo. This is the only photo I took from inside. She asked me what I was going to paint on her window and when I asked her what she wanted she said, "A man." She said her husband doesn't have to know everything. I put an "M" on his shirt for Margaret and depicted him winking at her. I told her this would be our little secret. She is delighted!!!!! The next three pictures show swimming pool fun! There's a little girl with her rubber ducky float, a boy doing a canon ball, and a graceful little lady doing a swan dive. I didn't realize there was so much reflection in these windows when I took these pictures, but I guess they are clear enough.
This was a two day project in 90+ temperatures and sweat bees swarming and feeding off me, but the residents had fun watching so it's worth it.
