Random thoughts and updates

Blissful Saturday. Home from an early run and after a yummy breakfast I am going to do a bit of painting. I started two new paintings yesterday and so far I like them a lot. Later I am going to an art show to be social then back home for more painting. I have been working a lot and when I do that the art suffers, so it feels good to be back into the swing of it. Bliss and joy abound.
An update on my mom: She is home and slowly getting better, she can walk, but it hurts, so she is using a wheelchair and walker to get around. Her goal is to be able to travel and come see me in 4 or 5 weeks.
Update on my cousin R: He is the bravest person I know. He is traveling and living his life to the fullest and if you talked to him you would never know he has cancer. According to the doctors, he has 6 months to live, but you just can't know for sure.
Have a most wonderful weekend, do fun stuff, okay. Tell me what's new? XOXO

Enjoy your Saturday Annie! Sounds like a lovely day. I'll be keeping both your mom and your cousin in my thoughts and prayers. : )

Brendan and I are in the garage working on getting my car running. (It's been nearly 15 months since I sold my Celica and I can't wait to have a drivable car again!) I brought my laptop in with us so we could refer back to the photos we took of the engine before we tore it apart. It's like a puzzle trying to put everything back together. : ) Other than that, it's raining so I'll probably roast a chicken I got from the Farmers' Market this morning and watch a movie. Have a good weekend!!

Your weekend sounds super good and fun, unlike me..it's either the slave to the house or garden, or kids..most time, all rolled into one hehe :P hugs/M

It is such a juggling act, working and then making time for art or doing something else that we love. Keep juggling and creating:) I'm glad your family is healing, though lives may be shorter than anticipated.

Have a wonderful and creative time Annie. It sounds like your cousin has the right idea -to squeeze every last laugh out of life and life it to the full. It has to be better than sitting and waiting. So good to hear that your Mother is improving.

Hi Annie,
Art shows and openings stimulate me to paint.
"You just can't know for sure" is very true. POSITIVE THOUGHTS.
