good to be home and back in the studio.
And while I really, really don't like NYC, I did enjoy visiting Central Park, Strawberry Fields, the Dakota and the NY Public Library. I've come to the conclusion that I just don't like the Northeast and all it represents.
I don't think I will be going back there again - so I was glad to see it one last time.

Like her mom, she appreciates peace, quiet and order and has really turned into quite the homemaker. So proud of her. I see so much of my mom in both my kids. THAT makes me happy.
Life has been upside down for quite a few months. I am looking forward to settling in to Fall and all the good stuff that comes along with that - including a trip to the Upper Pensinsula of Michigan, and a few trips offshore for some deep sea fishing before the big ones head out when our coastline turns cold. Really want to catch some Dolphin.
I depart here with a picture of Gizmo (and Toby) that Sabrina took as she was taking him out of the back of her Mini Cooper after she picked him up to babysit while we were traveling North.

This year I'm taking four:
Painting with Strong Values and a Limited Palette
Weathered Buildings in Watercolor
The New Merger: Painting & Photo Collage
I so look forward to this event every year. AOC brings artists from all over the country to North Carolina both as teacher and student. For four days the Hilton in Raleigh explodes with creative energy and I love being a part of that.

Kale, spinach, pineapple, orange.
Decided not to run this in juicer because of the kale.
Went into the vitamix instead.
So good. Probably my favorite.
Day 1 was a breeze .
Although I did want something solid around 7 pm,
I stayed strong and am glad I did.
Day 2? We"ll see how this goes. So far.... So good.
I feel amazing.

But no swimming allowed.
Red flags as far as the eye can see.
I just want to submerge my body into that fresh cool surf.
Rinse my cares away.
But I can't.
NO SWIIMMing ALLOWED.
I guess I'll drown my thoughts in the waves
instead. The millions of thoughts racing through my head.
This is just too much for me.

Boats, motorcycles, motor homes, buses... All leaving the OBX
...and we are coming.
Had to secure the boat, patio furniture and artwork.
The sky.... Not ominous.....
Gizmo will be reporting throughout the course of the storm.
A golf cart ride.
There will be plenty of time to batten down the hatches,

Thought we were babysitting this guy…
so that his parents could have some fun at the beach.
Come to find out….

That's TWO kids - TWO engagements within the last TWO months.
Now I'm told…

This is TOO overwhelming!
Congratulations Brina & Dylan.
So happy for you.

I publish this every once in a while. It makes me laugh every time I read it.
It IS GIZMO.
But this weekend I witnessed something...
the tables have turned....
there's a new sheriff in town...
Yes... This is an uneaten Jambone.
And it's Toby's.
.....you already ate yours.
