Feeding My Southern Soul

My husband fell asleep in his chair this afternoon with a baseball game on, so I put my flip flops on, quietly opened the door, went out and picked 4 of his green tomatoes! I had them just about fried before he woke up. He probably woke up from the delicious smell. I couldn't resist them just gleaming at me out there! If I had told him I was gonna pick those he most likely would have poo pooed that idea, however, when I handed him his plate that put a big smile on his face. I call them his tomatoes because as I said before I don't water anything! You can see my recipe down below. I don't really measure anything out much but this is as close as I could get it!

Last night the kids stayed over and watched National Treasure II. I was watching and knitting at the same time. I watched DIY's Knitty Gritty the other day and they made the cutest baby hat. With a grandson on the way I decided to give it a try. It's a very simple pattern. http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4826209,00.html I made a small baby blue one just like the pattern and a larger denim blue. I enlarged the pattern on the denim blue one which is probably a more appropriate size come winter time. Each one only took about an hour to do.
Yesterday I finished up a few paintings that I was working on & a Swell Sister stopped by to give me my last Indi collage project. This one is going to be a tough one! I know that 1 person still has to work on it and there is little room now for me. I am stumped. I looked at it and looked at it and really have no ideas or a direction to go on it! I have until Thursday which seems like plenty of time but I'm freaked out! That's only 3 days & I'll need to think about it at least another 2! I listed the following mermaid angel on Etsy & Ebay.
Tomorrow I will be working on a commission, mailing paintings and working on some new greeting cards for Etsy. I was really disappointed in my sales on Ebay this week. Not sure if it's Ebay's new best match thing, my art, the time of year or maybe time to find other outlets to sell. The art that I sold will only pay my listing fees, so I made no money. Ebay's fees are so expensive which makes it difficult because you have to pay dearly to even be seen. Ebay buyers tend to want original art for thrift store prices and Ebay does nothing to promote the artists or original art that is sold there. I did check through the art listings and it doesn't look like I was the only one who is having a bad week there. So enough of my Ebay rant! Hopefully this week will bring many blessings for everyone, including you!
