I just returned from a week with my art sisters in Key Largo. I said goodbye to 75 degrees and sunny and returned to 36 degrees and snowy here in New York, but it’s all good. As much as I love to get away, I’m always happy to return home to hubby, friends (the furry ones, too), family and my own bed.
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: Jen Rogers made us a compilation CD for the Keys, and I’ll be rocking that for a while.
Watching: I started playing catch up last night on the shows I tivo’d while away. About the latest episode of Project Runway –---the male dancers did a great job of distracting us from the sadly lacking garment construction skills of the contestants. (I don’t understand how someone who has never done a set-in collar made it on the show.)
Reading: Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague by Geraldine Brooks. She’s such an incredible writer, and while the topic is a sad one, the book keeps it moving. I’m really enjoying it.
Making: Learned lots and lots of great techniques at the Keys 4 Art retreat in Key Largo. Here’s a collage I made of a rooster. Isn’t he cute? I can see I’ll be doing a lot more with collage.
Grateful: To my family for supporting my art obsession and my occasional need to get away with kindred spirits.
Thinking: Of our new pope and hoping the world gives him a honeymoon before they start judging him. We would each want the same.
