Saturday post

After a quick trip to the dentist this morning, followed by a not-so-quick trip to Chico's, I am home and had better catch up before the deluge of children and grandchildren arrive later.  Todd Gillman is stopping overnight with the 3 kiddos; we are the halfway point en route to camp. Jeremy, Anne and the kids are coming over to see them and will, I hope, be here for dinner.

My son-in-law Tommy has gone home to Wisc.for his sister's funeral on Monday, so Jessica and Emma are in NJ this weekend. They will be here later - hooray--and are staying over. I have not seen Miss Emma in a few weeks, so you will no doubt be deluged with photos ad nauseum after this visit. I'll try not to be too boring about it.

The other night, we attended Josh's "moving up" ceremony from 5th grade to middle school.  Good grief -- before we know it, he'll be driving.
Below, the requisite picture with one set of grandparents.




Sorry about not posting for the last few days - I would have to invent things to keep it lively and my creativity is being all used up on other pursuits. Nevertheless, I am still working on the purple, very unchararacteristic-for-me piece I was playing with the other day in the studio.

Neither of these works for me, so the saga continues till I get tired of it and throw the pieces into the scrap box.
With that, I shall return to the next set of tasks awaiting me.
I will try to be more diligent about posting.  Hang in there.

I love the colors and think you're getting close.

I'm in Upstate NY this week visiting my new granddaughter - maybe not too terribly far from you, at least a lot closer than where I usually am in California.

No worries about posting (ask ele of elle in the coop about "blogging without obligation", she has a bunch of great links on the subject). You have so many things going on in life that preclude posting regularly- please don't let blogging add to your stress. :D

What a handsome young man, and good looking grand parents, too. I'd love to play with those blocks you've made, Rayna. Lot's of possibilities. Play with it as you feel like it. Blog when you can. I know you've got a lot going on. Take care!
