Jigs & Reels...


My daughter & I have taken Irish dance for 7 years & just love it! I've always wanted to do a painting with an Irish dancer & with St. Patty's Day around the corner I thought now was the perfect time. I think she turned out quite spiffy in her dance dress, poodle socks & ghillies. I also know from personal experience how fun those long laces are for kitties! This dancer Colleen & her cat Seamus will be up for auction on ebay this evening. Check her out!

What's with the weather today??? It's the first week of March & we have 84 degrees here in Wichita! I was out in the backyard this morning picking up poop (from my humungo dog-ha) & started to sweat! That's just wrong! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy spring but I'm not ready for the dog days of August yet! I just drove in a blizzard last weekend & today you could wear shorts. That's Kansas for you. They say if you don't like the weather in Kansas just wait a day!

Love the blog! This is a very cool creation even though I am not an Irish dancer - I could be tho??? The kitty is way cute too.

Peace & love from Colorado
