On vacation

New Colony, Tx.

I know several have asked where I have been.  Right now we are visiting children and grandchildren near Dallas, Tx.  Let me tell you....I lived in the Dallas area for over 20 years.  Suffered through the worst (I thought) in 1980 of 42 days of 100+ degrees of heat.  Coming from South Carolina and jumping into 100+ heat  is like dropping a frog into boiling want to jump right out of it!!!  It has been over 2-1/2 years since we have been here and I had 2 grandchildren I had never got to hold.  John, our son and his wife Holly have 4 children ages 5 to 1-1/2.  The oldest is a only granddaughter. They are an arm full and all different.  What a joy!  Needless to say I haven't had much time or opportunity with 8 little hands to work with my Copic markers or anything else.  I plan to be back at the store Friday morning and get things back to normal.  In the meantime I am enjoying hearing them calling me "GRRAAANDMAAA" ;)

  1. I know that even with the heat you are having a great time being a GRANDMA. We miss you and want you home to tell us all the stories about those beautiful grandchildren. Have a safe trip and we look forward to seeing you Friday. Elaine


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I hope to use the comments to encourage me to learn and improve the posts here. I would especially like comments that would show me the type of posts you would like to see such as Copics, watercolor or other techniques or organization ideas.
