Henry loves to say the word Apple. He doesn't like eating apples, never has. But boy, he sure does love pointing them out. Occasionally, we give him "appey juice", which he equally loves. On a recent road-trip home we stopped to stretch our legs and get a bite and came across an apple car. You know, the kind that you put .25 cents in to ride? Henry was totally enamored with it. Of course we put him in it and he pretended to drive it, just like the worm sitting next to him. There was one small problem. Henry would not get out of the apple. Nope, wouldn't budge. I was so happy to see written on the side of the apple that it was a "Richard Scary Apple Car". The Richard Scary books are a big deal around these parts. Hours & hours of enjoyment. There are soo many things on each and every page (including apples). We were eventually able to pry Henry out of the apple and thus, the inspiration for this painting. It's not quite finished yet, but I am hoping to do that today. I'm also hoping to have originals & prints available in my etsy shop (which sadly has been very neglected) next week sometime. I'll give you a shout-out when they are available.
It's a overcast & cloudy (I guess that's the same thing) day and so we have the Barefoot Contessa's Lentil Sausage Soup on the menu. I can't tell you how much I adore Ina Garten. So much, that I am going to dedicate an entire post to her, later this week. So I'd better stop talking now.
Today is already kind of a weird day, I think I mistakenly put my grumpy pants on. Feeling kind of irritable and weird. Typepad isn't helping. For 3 days I haven't been able to post any comments on any blogs. My own included. I've heard my site is giving some of you grief. I'm sorry. I sent a note to Typepad this morning. I've seen so many fun things out in blog land this week and am sad I am not able to post you a comment letting you know how much I adore what you are doing. I'm hopeful they'll get it worked out.
