Sweet Little Landscape

I bought this sweet little landscape at a "living estate sale" last weekend.  It's about 4"x5", oil on masonite.  It's signed "Olva".

It reminds me of my grandfather's farm, near San Antonio.  I can remember his barn full of corn, his chickens, the pond, and the smokehouse.  I loved his homemade sausage.  And my grandmother's cookies and bread pudding, and everything else she cooked.   Those were sweet days.

I'm hoping that I am creating some memories for my grandchildren too, which is why we play Candyland and go to the wading pool and play Jenga and do the Hokie Pokie. 

Today is a good day to build memories.
