6 years a few months in fact, since I’ve updated this blog.

work has taken a turn for worst, it’s far busier and more stressful than ever before so art has taken a back seat. I turned 61 this past may – I have a limited amount of time to create and travel. Travel at least I’ve been able to jam in. Very difficult to get time off but when I have I’ve made the most of it.

Went to Michigan to see the fall color with my friend Julie 2015.  England for my 60th, 2016. so much fun, plan to go again in a couple of years.  Got to see my brother and my Aunt this past May 2017, just before I turned 61, she doesn’t know me anymore. That was very sad. but so very glad I got to see her again. Had a great time with my brother and his family. it was peaceful – something in short supply at work and at home this past year.

home is becoming peaceful again, my husband lost his mother this past year. She was a wonderful women but it was hard on him to watch her slide into decline.  Fingers crossed his health will keep getting better, after four eye operations we are hopefully both eyes will be good now. He is now 70 years old. Seems like just yesterday he was in his 40’s and I was in my 30’s   🙂

I do plan on working thru some of my art books. haven’t really had time for my two favorite art sites http://www.atcsforall.com and https://www.craftster.org/

but want to start doing art again. I can’t live in the future – waiting for my life to start once I retire. Which truth be told I’ve been doing a bit this past year, Wish I could retire today but I need to pay off some bills and build up the 401K a bit more so finding my blog again and will be pulling out some art books. Big thing will be getting my art room/spare room cleaned up – it’s a major mess. 😛

so this this is to keep me honest and to stop putting it off.

I was going to start posting more but got sick as a dog (why do people say that – must look that up) been sick since Jan 9th now – really think it’s turned into walking pneumonia – of course the doctor has been treating for other things – got another call in for new pills and if they aren’t what I need I may need to let my husband drag me off to the ER like he’s been wanting to do for a week now.

anyways I do have new art to post (just not the energy to do it yet – did get my book off in time to the sketchbook project – just waiting to hear if they have it – fingers crossed.
