Returning Home

Ah Ying had many important things on her mind as she herded her flock from Third Uncle’s pond. She could not remember if she had tethered up the water buffalo earlier this morning or if she had fed the chickens at dawn. She was confused about the chilies she had laid out in the courtyard and still was not clear if she was suppose to take her brother to Granny Chen's or go to the market. She was not sure how she would manage all her chores.

  3. How wonderful for you to be with your dear friend.

    Have a wonderful time there.

    Love Renee xoxo

  4. Oh, she sounds like me...I have to laugh. I would probably be expelled from the farm.

  5. I love this painting - one of my favorites. The composition, the perspective, the color palette - the whole thing.
