If you live in the Eastern part of the U.S. you know what the big story was this week…. SNOW! A record-breaking blizzard! Our area was forecasted to get 18-24″ over the weekend, but I think we ended up with about 14″. It’s hard to say because there were very heavy winds (the storm was… Keep reading…

I took a loooong break over the Christmas holidays- about 2 1/2 weeks! I did a little work here and there- a quick check-in on email and Facebook, a little sketching… but that’s about it. There was a lot of lazing about, lol!! My daughter left for her 3 1/2 month semester in England last… Keep reading…

Fun Fall Weekend

Daughter was home for her Fall Break from college last week- it was just too short! But we packed a lot in… Thursday and Friday, she unpacked her backpack in my office, and I enjoyed working and having her right there with me while I worked and she did her homework. Thursday night, we just… Keep reading…
