Mountain Majesty


We've been getting snow - a couple more inches last night. (Update - I was sadly mistaken - we got 6+ inches of snow with another 8-10 predicted!) This is good for snowmobiling but not so good for those of us who are craving spring. Since I'm in both categories, I guess I'll be happy about it!

We leave this evening to take three kids and three dogs to the cabin. It's going to be fun but also crazy busy. Last time we just took two kids and I spent the whole time helping put boots, mittens, hats and snowpants on and off all day. In between all that I'll be making cocoa.

I did NOT finish MaryAnn's jacket so she will probably have to wear a sweatshirt or I'll just wrap a blanket around her. I got the blueline of my book, so I'm taking that with me to proof. When I told my husband I was taking the book to proof, the jacket to finish sewing, my watercolors to create a few more ABC ATC's (I'm behind - I didn't get G done yet), maybe draw/paint a postcard or two....it was about then that he told me "you sure are optimistic" which I think meant, "you crazy woman! You will never get all that done!"

That's me, eternally optimistic. Oh yeah, and I won't be here so see you all when I get back.

Have fun, poor MaryAnn, you must hate her.

Stay out of the trees!

Oh Patty, I am optimistic too. I will bring six different subjects to work on while we are at the farm for instance, and I will hardly even touch one while we are there!

You go girl. Take the happy road with lots of possibilities. I always pack my paints and papers. I rarely use them but it feels liberating when I can have them along. I always have that possibility.

Have fun Patty - enjoy all that snow. We really got cheated this winter, barely any and we missed it.
