I did win a prize!

I never meant it to be this long between posts. My photography seems to have consumed me! I have even had to give up reading novels for several weeks to get everything done.

I won a prize in the University of Connecticut Sustainable Depictions Art Contest sponsored by the University of Connecticut's Environmental Policy Department!!!! 

Here I am at the opening reception with my photo. The one on the right is also mine. The winning photo is Mr. B 's favorite. He named it "Evening Mirror."

Suddenly Christmas is almost here and I am still madly framing photos for my January show. But I took time off to paint a section of the kitchen cabinets with my son-in-law. Busy as I am, I volunteered to host my Camera Club Christmas party. So now I have two days to get the house cleaned, organized and decorated.

We had a tree cutting and decorating party. Friends were glad to go with us to cut a ten foot tree. After a lunch of chili we decorated the tree as we listened to Christmas music and sang along.  Several of our young friends had never had a live tree in their house so this was an experience for them!

I haven't forgotten you all and I plan to post regularly again!
Best wishes for a Merry Christmas!

Thanks for your comment. We had a 20 yd dumpster, plus anything good we brought to Savers or I gave to a friend who has a booth at an antique mall. There will still be plenty of stuff to give away once the house is sold but it is not even listed yet. I have been so busy with pre-listing reno, cleaning, touch ups etc that I am not ready for Christmas either. Can't get in the mood with so much to do around here. The more I do the more I seem to find that needs doing..a vicious cycle.

Hope your holidays ore joyous and I still plan to get together with you maybe sometime next spring/summer.
