We are back....I'm still unpacking and getting everything under control. My camera is buried in one of the unpacked bags, so I decided to put a picture of Molly up for you~ it looks like she's so happy that I'm home!
It was a beautiful journey, the route we take is scenic and has plenty of wildlife. There was an ice storm the morning of our opening and many couldn't get in for a couple days. It was slow, which was expected with the economy, but above all it was wonderful to see dear friends and meet new. I did fine and came home excited to start some of the new friends I've drawn in my sketch book. There is still some work to be done first, and my Dad is still in the hospital. Thank all of you so much for asking. We have found that his heart is fine, but there is fluid around his lungs. He will have some of it removed tomorrow. He's been on dialysis about every other day or so and getting plenty of rest to build his strength.
In it all, my days are kept full keeping home, family and (a little) creativity running as smoothly as possible. My emails may lag a bit on the returning end but I'll be working at them as I can each day. The days are getting longer now, right?
