  1. Rain, I thought you were discontinuing TAD at the end of this year! Delighted to see you are going to continue it with new prompts for 2024! The wheels are turning already in my mind . . . .

  2. Love your Tweety in the rain! The beans look so good! Thanks for the 2024 themes wow.

  3. How I would love some rain. We need it. And fires are already raging in parts of my country.

  4. The beans look good! I really like your recipes although Im mainly an animal based eater.

  5. Love your Tweety art. Take care, have a great day!

  6. Rain has hit here as well, Rain (that makes for an odd sentence!), which is nice as we need it but cold when it hits.

    A good pot of baked beans is a wonderful thing.

  7. Tweety looks so cute.
    And the beans look tasty.
    Thank you for hosting, Rain.

  8. No art today but love your tweety!

  9. Hi Rain. Sorry I haven't been joining in lately, I have reduced a lot of challenges as I am not well enough to do more than I do now. I hope I can come back and join in again soon! Hugs, valerie

  10. Dear Rain, Tweety is well protected from the rain. And mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, baked beans, I love them!
    Conveniently, I took part in the Dirty Weather blog parade today, which fits perfectly with your "Cold and Rainy". And you can also see delicious food in my post πŸ˜‹
    All the best - I hope you've had a good start to November,
    πŸ‚πŸƒπŸπŸƒ πŸ‚

  11. Oh your little Tweety Bird ... what a cutie. Pink boots and an Orange Rain Coat and Hat ... a favorite combination of mine, though I get poo pooed when I try to wear it. Your beans look delicious and I await the recipe. I have always loved baked beans though I have to admit they cause some music in my surrounding when I eat them. So what's a little music, I say, Ha! So your list of prompts is long and interesting, though I was hoping you would add some things like clouds or smoke or shadows (all things I have pictures of :). I will have to work on your prompts as they come up ... should be a fun year for all of us (assuming I am able to find my way to your new location :0 ) On to do Trains for next week. I am pretty sure I have some old artwork that will fit in that prompt, but I hope I have some time to create something new this week. Be well my friend ...

  12. Much fun ! I can't share my art as I've been felting presents for my Ottawa kids. They aren't great, but I know they will like them.

  13. Look like Tweety is doing just fine, in the rain.
    Coffee is on.

  14. ...I LOVE baked beans! Have a great weekend.

  15. We found out that in the UK, baked beans are a favorite served with breakfast, however, the ones served did not look as appealing as yours, Rain. This is the perfect time of year for them!

  16. Love Tweety and I'm sure those baked beans are tasty.

    Have a good month of November.

    All the best Jan

  17. Great looking baked beans, Rain. For some reason, I thought you were done with blogging. Where did I get that idea?

  18. We've had our share of rain and cold weather here, too. Tweety is prepared and looks cute! :)

  19. Hi Rain. Your beans look 10X times better than a tin of Heinz. I'm waiting for the recipe. We are having lots of rain here where nothing much changes but looking forward to a few frosty mornings.

  20. Yum, we love baked beans. I have that on our menu for this week, and I have some little smoked sausages to add in there too. Should be yummy. Hope you are doing well. It was great to hear from you.

  21. Oh, what a great list of prompts! I haven't had baked beans in a very long time.

  22. The beans looks nice and tasty. Tweety is looking good and ready to take on the rain. :)


❤ Thanks for your comment, I love hearing from everyone! ❤ Why not join me and my fellow artists every Thursday for TADD? That's Thursday Art and Dinner Date! It's a lot of fun!
