rain







Wow I am impressed, with the amount and strength of the rain we have had in the last two weeks...It got harder and worse each day each hour...
I think it is contributing to the migraine  I am fighting now....
Water water everywhere...
I was unable to get to work tonight and not feeling up to the fight...
It has finally stopped...Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!
THE SUN IS OUT ,SO HOPEFULLY THE YARD WILL START TO DRY OUT...
The bugs are bigger and biting harder since all the rains came....
Anyway it's onward and upward as we begin to clean out and get rid of stuff to prepare for the next phase of our life...
Big changes coming very soon it looks like...
Hope all are well and no one has floated away .....

Where has it gone?











How has this summer just flown past me???
Time is going by too fast....
Time fly's when you are having fun....It is so true...
I had the best visit with family in the northwest, I miss you guy's so much....
I can not believe it is over and we are on to other things already...
But very happy too, that Wy is six weeks out from the second hip replacement and sees a big improvement...
Thanks to all who helped to keep him company while I was gone....and fed him so well....
He finished physical therapy yesterday and says a great big Thank You Joli for taking such great care of him, and to Achieve home health for hooking them up.....

Recovering






 I am teaching the fish on June 21st.... Come paint this ceramic fish with me....



   Wy's  starting the recovery process now and, slowly but surely he will be back on his feet...
Thank You to all the wonderful people who have been helping and supporting us as we go through these trying times and head out the other side....
There is, after all ,light at the end of this tunnel....
Now that we are home I am keeping busy while he is at rest, doing some prep for the up coming classes... See examples above
I am still upset about people using our yard as their dump...But am trying to flap my wings and move on from it....
Here we are to Saturday, my favorite day, so hope you all have a good one....

The weather was beautiful as well, which helped too....
It was sure nice to meet Beth and have such a nice experience,sharing time and space with her....Great person...
We are now ready for the next step at home which is Wy's second hip, coming up on Tuesday...Please keep him thoughts....

Off to see Head Quarters





I am off on a new adventure today...Going to get trained...
I am very excited to be given this chance to meet all the fine folks that make the magic happen back on the home front...
The starting point of "Painting With A Twist." 
Four full days of painting and fraternizing with the head honchos and all the other people that make this well oiled machine run so well....
I am so happy to be a part of all of this....
I wish you all a very good week....

Down by the water side , added to Etsy

 



I am really trying to get more art work into my Etsy shop.
I have started adding some of the paintings from my "Down By The Waterside" collection today. Yesterday it was the paintings from my "Fruits of my Labor "collection..so if you get a chance, stop by to visit my shop...
Work has been very busy, which you already know, I think is a very good thing...I spent ten hour there on Mother's Day,with back to back,to back, sold out classes...much chaos but much fun and a wonderful time was had by all....
Must fly now, many things to get finished before heading out to work...
Hope this finds all well and happy....
