Mostly errands

We ran errands today.  I needed two picture frames for the horse pictures.  I am hoping to finish them this weekend.  We also needed some spices which I find best and least expensive to buy in bulk from the health food store.  And we needed groceries and a few other items from Meijers.   A nice trip.  The Bearded One even drove at the speed limit!  Woohoo!

For dinner, we had Eggplant Parmesan.  A repeat recipe.  Delicious and healthy.  We had to buy the eggplant instead of harvesting it from the garden.  I had planned on fixing it last week but eggplant at the local market was over $4 for one eggplant!  Yikes!  Today, I got one for $1.50 from Meijers.  Better.

I am beginning to work on the background of the horse pictures.  I am experiencing a bit of trepidation here.  I have researched a new technique using shreds of colored pencil blurred into the background but am concerned that this may ruin the work I have done so far.  So, I am using old techniques.  Here are my first layers of color in the background.
