I have put this blog post off, cuz I have nothing exciting to show you, but hope to very soon. I survived the very chaotic May/June and even had a day or two to veg. Graduation went beautifully and I am so proud of my son. To top it off, a couple of days after graduation, Cal Poly, his first choice in colleges, sent an acceptance letter when they had previously turned him away due to overwhelming numbers of applicants. So, that made it all the sweeter.
I'm off to Missouri later this week for a very short trip to visit my dad's widow . . .and out of tradition of always being there for the 4th of July. I dread it. It will be very sad for me as I think I will probably say goodbye to Missouri for a very, very long time. I cannot imagine being there without my dad or the rest of my family. I've been there just about every summer out of my 44 years of life, but now my family has all passed away and no one is there to visit - it will feel so empty.
After THAT, I am free, free, free and look very forward to a summer of making art - mostly art for me, very few trading or swaps or obligatory pieces and I really need that right now. I just can't wait. As I am getting all of my ducks in a row, finally, have even started visiting blogs a bit tonight and will continue until I am all caught up again.
Thank you for hanging with me during my drought here on the blog. Here's a free image for your patience and continued support, no matter what. You all mean so much to me! Hope to be back on top of it all very, very soon! (be sure to click on it to get the big version)
