Just a slice of life

Wish I knew what was what. I could seek expertise or I could do as my mother did. She was the last one with the paint brush here and I am pretty sure she just grabbed what she had and went for it.

So…

…I did the same. One thing to say about my mother: She got things done:)

There are several ways to enjoy Easter…
