Vacation is over finally home and trying to get into my usual comfortable RUT. Whenever possible I read your blogs. It just amazed me how often there is no Wi FI or signal. So here I am. catching up with Wanderlust and "Playing Tag Art Challenge" with Roben-Marie Smith, a task I expected to complete in a couple of hours; it is now 5 hours later and completion is days down the road
This week in Wanderlust the guest artist was Azoline , a fine french artist who is very organized, careful, tidy and conservative. Everything I am completely NOT. Her class, video and pdf were detailed and easy to follow. So below is what I made. She uses Yupo paper and alcohol inks, I did not have Yupo so used Rangers glossy paper for alcohol inks. really like how it turned out and plan to at least use up the alcohol inks. problem is that they are sold in sets of 3, and for me, who loves brights it means 2 drabs for every bright.
This is my work space.
This is my computer desk whe…
Cannot sleep due to medication and wine fighting within my body. 2 weeks ago my computer crashed and was replace with a Dell laptop 7 days later. Apparently it did not come on a slow boat from India but I think by stage coach. Then the fun of setting it up, battling those high tech words with low expletives.

Larry even rescued all my files from my hard drive. Carole got my printer to work.
Over the last 2 weeks we have had many problems and solutions to find for our lives. Managed a little art work.
My work space at 1.34 am CT
What you see is all the stuff dumped as i cleared a space for Larry and Carole to both work at the new and old. This shot was the first ever taken at night and looking north.
OK that is me will try to visit everyone later, much later today.
Last week tried to visit everyone but too soon after eye surgery to see well so I managed about half.
This was a busy weekend. We made marmalade on Sunday with the grapefruit our friends, Carol and Larry grew in Houston.They went to great lengths to protect the grapefruit from frost and cold. There was a lot of fruit and juice. They all weighed about 1 lb each, unpeeled. They require a lot of prep before cooking.
Today, my workspace. just finished journal pages using envelopes made into a book for March. Happened upon a saved scrap with a grapefruit on it. This is my Documented Life Journal
Tomorrow we will make the rest of the grapefruit into marmalade.
Today the sun is shining and it is heating up. So happy. The view fro my studio window. The birds are all beginning to return and Chris is on humming bird watch, so I bough 10lbs of sugar as he will start making their food soon.
Last week came to a decision that I need to change my workout. I decided to admit i am old…
