 :(  Got the reminder....  :'(  Feeling quite despondent, tried drawing yesterday to take my mind off it. Couldn't do it...so went round the town to all the internet cafes. Couldn't find one good enough to even allow the replays to run.
Decided only one thing to do...  :flight: nothing goes to windward like a 747! No flights to NZ .... would take days to get there .... might make it for the next lesson   :think:
 :smart:      :faint:      :smart:     :faint:
Nolan?                       Dennis?                  Why are you on the floor? I thought you'd be thrilled! Hmmmm....Must have fainted from the sheer joy of it! Too much excitement I guess..   ;D    :2funny:   :2funny:
 :wave:
Cheers, Val

 :'(  I'm so sorry to hear you are having trouble with locating internet, Val!!! I know you have really been looking forward to this class.(probably more so than anyone else, since you are the one that put in a request for a wc class)

I have just got a reminder, so it's definitely working now!

Thanks C.    Just got some internet....in time to miss the class!  :eek: Too slow anyway, having enough trouble just getting on to the site and reading what's going on.  :(  Do I ever miss you guys....  :'(
Next stop has no internet.....might not get on again for a while after we leave here. Weather is really holding us up, I'm dreaming of the land of internet....I know it's out there somewhere!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Val,  it might not have mattered if you could get the net or not.  There has been soooo many people sign up for the class that it has overloaded and a lot of us can't even get on! :'(  Paint Basket is really growing!!

By the way, we've really missed you, too!!!  I talk about "PB family" so much that my daughter was asking the other day, "Hey Mom, where's Val"? :2funny:  :2funny:

Val, I'm really trying to simpathise with you but...... just outside my window is 4 feet of snow and minus 24 celcius. I had to plug in my dog so he could bark. My chicken lay frozen eggs. You in the sun, sand, sea and no internet.......... I'll trade right now! My place for yours. Grab a plane, meet you half way!!! :)

Claude, you're a real nut case!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:  It's so much fun when you and Val get together here!  I love a good laugh.

We've had freezing rain followed by snow and it has stayed cold, -27  :cold:  this morning.  We've had a beautiful sunny day.  I took some photos while we were out, only to find I left the camera card in my computer!   :tickedoff:  I took photos of the sunrise over the river this morning and forgot to put the card back in the camera.    :blush:  The trees are laden with ice and snow and the sun glistens on the branches.  If any of the photos I did take are any good, I'll share them on the photo reference section.

I've seen artists put pink in their snow scenes and have wondered why.  Well, I actually saw it with my own eyes this afternoon.  The sun was shining through the trees and casting a beautiful pink light on the snow.  It was one of those rare moments in time.  Oh, if only I had put the camera card back in my camera!!!

I wish those people in the upside down part of the world would share some of their heat.

I don't have animals or chickens, so no problems there.  We did have power outages though, one for almost 24 hrs and another one this afternoon while we were out.

We were were invited to visit friends today so I couldn't have watched the watercolor webinar, so it's not my fault for over-loading the server.   :D    :)

Paintbasket is having growing pains.  I hope Nolan and Dennis aren't too stressed out over it.  I'm looking forward to the replay.

Lilian don't feel bad for Dennis and Nolan. They have the super problem of having too many customers. Boy! Sure wish I had such "bad" luck in my greenhouses!

All I can say is that we will be dishing out tons of valuable information, and some exciting paint-a-longs.
I have some exciting projects planned for later on O0
