Hi, Folks! Sorry I went AWOL for a while there. It turns out it's been as much work to depart from summer as it was to enter it. School started 2 weeks ago, and getting up at 6:30 instead of 8 has been kickin' my tail. The only way I know to survive it well has been to take any gaps in my schedule where I would normally draw or paint, and SLEEP. Along with this shift, I've had occasion for a lot of baking and hostessing lately, which I did enjoy. However, I think things are going back to "normal", so I'm considering how I can work some visual creativity back into my schedule. Thanks for hanging in there with me through all the ebb and flow this year has brought.
