The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. I am sorry I haven't been able to keep up with all your wonderful blogs lately--I have been wanting to though! Ever since the last Friday of July my husband "Mr. Fox" and I have been helping his parents to move. We've also been working on setting up our own place as we will be buying their "old" house from them--Mr. Fox's years long dream! There is still lots to do. Here's a peek at what I've been working with.
|Auntie Em! It's a TWISTER!|
This past week I've been looking at blogs and a website called weeklygreens.com for some yummy recipes. It's been the first real chance I've been able to *really* be able to cook for my husband. Here are a few pictures.

I've also been doing quite a bit of art. I painted a little "treasure box" for my new younger cousin Jake. We used Colorado as the theme as that is where Mr. Fox and I went on our honeymoon!

And I've been doing other art too--here was my latest commission I did--someone wanted them drawn as an elephant (their favorite animal) and their sister as a monkey. They requested tulips and daffodils in the picture as well (favorite flowers). It was a lot of fun to do! Prismacolor markers was the medium.
