old friends, new friends.
This weekend we only managed to make it to one of the zillion festivals going on all at once over the weekend. I wish they could be staggered a bit throughout the month instead of all happening at the same time. Stockley Gardens, a local fine arts festival was the winner. We really enjoyed seeing some new, different artists this season (and all painters!). I am toying with the idea of participating in the Stockley Gardens fall festival. We'll see how much work I'm able to accomplish over the summer. I have some new ideas for larger paintings that I am just so excited about. I need to get crackin' though- it is just so hard to find the time to get everything done. Speaking of which, I dropped Henry off at my parents house so that I could have a "personal" day to get yard work done and stuff ready for a garage sale. And here I am inside blogging.... well, I am devoted to my posting, what can I say? And what I really want to do is take a nap. How luxurious would that be?
Yesterday our old neighbors who moved to Connecticut about a year and 1/2 ago stopped in town for a visit. It was so wonderful to catch up with them. Their son was just a tiny baby when they moved, and now he is running around and saying the funniest things. I've never heard cuter animal sounds before in my life- i.e. Q."what does a dog say?" A."oof, woof, woof"-in a tiny, sweet voice. It was so cool to watch Henry interacting with another kid, sharing his toys and all. We'll see how long that gracious sharing lasts- hopefully, forever. Happy Monday, folks. and I'm off to cut back those azaleas.... or take a nap.
