Back to normal this week after a short trip to NOLA

I am painting again this week..I always enjoy it but it takes so much longer than I want it to. I am painting another southwest pot as a gift for some one.
We went to New Orleans for a long week end ( last weekend.)We went for the Zydeco/Cajun festival. I think it's the shortest vacation we have ever taken and probably the most fun! I don't think you can go hear that kind of music anywhere but in NOLA. It's amazing that it is so popular. I have loved it since I first saw the movie "The Big Easy", many many years ago. This is the 2nd festival that we have gone to in New Orleans. I can't wait for our next one! The only downfall was (no pun intended)  that the whole time we were there it rained! One of the days it poured most of the day. We had an umbrella and we bought one of those funny plastic pull over rain coats for 3 bucks. Everyone looked like they weighed 200 pounds in those plastic coverings, but at least they kept us dry!    We didn't mind the rain at all, though...the temperature was in the 80s. We really had a great time.
