Hello from YouTube!

Happy Sunday evening, everyone! Here in northern California it is gloriously rainy today.  I have to admit, I'm a bit out of practice with so much rain - I left my umbrella at the store the other day and I think it might be gone forever.

Rain aside, I'm taking the plunge and trying to add YouTube channel to my mix! I got the first video up today. It isn't much beyond an introduction, but I figured that was a good place to start.

I'm sitting in front of a couple of absolutely beautiful paintings that our family's dear friend and very talented Portland-based artist Jessica Nichols created. Please check out Jessica's work on her website, Sweet Eventide. Her work is an oasis of calm, beauty, and hope. We love her art and we love her, too!

After filming and viewing this short welcome video, I realized what a lovely antidote all the springtime colors were to the rainy weather, so we took a couple more pictures indoors on the sofa just for fun.

Enjoy the rainy Sunday night, all!
