It's Been A Long Time

Image
I wanted to say hello to everyone. I know it's been a long time since my last post. The world is in a much different space from when I last wrote on March 2nd. So am I. I hope and pray that all of you out there are safe and taking care of yourselves and your loved ones. Sorry that genealogy has kind of fallen by the wayside. 

Please stay vigilant and wear your mask when you go out. Keep the hand sanitizer handy. Wash your hands. This is how we take care of each other these days. 

Be well, be kind, and be patient.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. 

We'll get there if we take care of each other.

Pink Invitational 2020

Here's pictures of our beautiful girl back from injury. In the fall, she broke a bone in her left foot which took a long time to heal. These are pictures from her second competition of the season, Pink Invitational 2020. She's getting stronger every week. I loved watching her compete and hanging out with her teammates. They are so supportive of one another. No medals this time for her but she gained a bunch of her confidence back. 











She competed late on Saturday February 22, 2020 so that involved an overnight stay in Philadelphia. I don't like driving long distances at night especially if I'm tired. The following day we spent time sightseeing and checking out a Blick art supply store that was near our hotel. OMG! If you love doing art, then you love Blick! We could have spent the whole day there, trying out different art supplies, but we had to make that drive back home. 




Bob and his squirrel assistant are looking at me like, "Who the heck is this crazy lady?"












Crayons

As a child, if someone gave me a coloring book and a 64 count box of Crayola Crayons I would entertain myself for hours on end. Well, crayons have made their way back into my life, as well as paints, pencils and various other art supplies.

My art cart brings me such joy. I look at it in the morning and it gives me permission to go ahead and play. My heart has been missing this and I didn't even know it.



I started this post last Fall and it has been sitting unpublished in my draft folder since then. I have some news to share, so it seemed like the perfect time to finish this. 

I am so excited to announce that some of my work will be shown for the month of February at a local museum. Here's the link to the annoucement:  https://www.facebook.com/The.Vestal.Museum/photos/a.729136080449783/3232797556750277/?type=3&theater

Sending thanks out to my friends and family who have been so supportive of me and my art journey. Lately, I've been focusing on maintaining balance in my life…
