17, tennis, and girlfriends.......not in that order .....

let's just get right down to the true confession that will start this post ..... i'm not really certain if i've ever confessed this next bit on my blog before ... here goes .... i HATE being in the kitchen .... i don't like cooking... i tolerate baking (unless it is christmas cookies with my mom and then i LOVE it) ..... and truly .... i just don't care about food that much ..... i like food.... i like to eat great food ..... but i don't like it enough to want to make it ..... what did e make for dinner? reservations....not really .... i actually cook dinner for my family 5 or 6 days out of seven ....the other night or two andy cooks or we go out...... but i would be happy with a bagel for breakfast every morning for the rest of my life.... a sandwich (turkey with cheddar and good tomoatos) for lunch into eternity .... and pizza and a salad for dinner .... now, i know that's not healthy....nor is it how i live .... but, i can imagine it..... cooking would be neglibible! .....throw in some grapes, watermelons and bananas, and i'd be set .... so ..... based on this knowledge .... you can see how far i will go to avoid anything kitcheny....

i have a home tennis match tomorrow ... first one .... we have five doubles teams playing .... i'm playing line three with best pal, dana ...... the funny thing is that a year ago we were just taking lessons and we'd see these teams having parties at their matches ..... with table cloths and flowers and all manner of fanciness ... all next to the tennis courts ... and it looked so goofy-funny-crazy .... we will NEVER be like that ... so, lesson learned, never say never ... cause yep, we are doing it ..... the last three thursdays we've been away and the home team has had food and drinks and whatnot ...... and tomorrow it is our turn ..... so the captain sent out an email .... sign up for the food you will bring .... and the first thing that crossed my mind was that i wanted to bring the sodas and water....ha ...no cooking .... but no..... she signed up for that ......what's that leave me? ..... so i volunteered for the table cloth, the paper goods, and ....ta dum! ... the centerpiece .... which, if i do say so myself is an outstanding display of tennis craftiness!!! ........ i have a vase in the middle of my ball hopper .... pretty coolio, eh? .... i did that for my tennis girlfriends.......

then..... i am having a social for my women's group on friday .....that's more girlfriends........and lunch ..... i, of course, am in charge of paper goods and drinks.... but even better than that.....for the "event" portion of the social ..... i am having a dozen women arts and crafting in my basement studio!!! certainly that validates my "i don't want to feed you" stance ...i won't feed you but, here, use all my art supplies ....... thank heavens for potlucks!!!

hopefully on friday i will remember to take pics for you and show you the fabulousness that my women's group creates on friday .....

...in the meanwhile .... here is number 17 .... the 17th new piece of art that i shall show you on this the 17th day in a row of hard core art creating ...... i actually had a bit of time in my studio today ..... so i could potentially get WAY ahead on this creating thing .... coolio, huh? anyway ... this was a juicy square background that i had other plans for ...... i actually wrote on the back of it that i wanted to put a blue pear on it ... oh well .... i'm on a heart and home kick! ....so heart and home it is ...... and if someone buys it and reads the back, they'll just have to understand that my artistic process can be a bit on the flakey side ......

come back tomorrow..... 18 is already waiting .... and 19 is SO close to done!!! .... tra la la ......
