A few words on Monday
Not much going on here, but Holly has reminded me that I haven't posted in 5 days. I have done very little art stuff lately, but they were atc backgrounds only for a background atc swap. I forgot to scan them before I sent them on cause I was in a hurry. I have some other projects I need to work on, hopefully tomorrow.
My oldest dd, Emily and her hubby came for a visit over the weekend. It was great to get to see them and the grand doggy, Coal. Bama was glad to see him go home, though, as she spent most of the time they were here under our bed hiding. We didn't do much except watch ballgames and grill some burgers. Mostly just relaxed and talked. I forgot I did manage to get Emily to help me clean out a few drawers of stuff that were hers. I hope to get both girls to do a little at a time when they are home to get rid of the things they don't want to hold on to and to get the stuff they want to keep either sent home with them or put into storage bins for safekeeping. Small steps, small steps!
One of the pics for today is a page I did a while back for a postage stamp page swap. The other is one of a late summer rose. Most of these roses have been eaten by Japanese beetles this year, but the beetles are gone now and there are a few blooms here and there.
Like I said I hope to get some more art done tomorrow and Wednesday, so maybe something new to post about. I went to Mom's today to do some more yard work, trying to get some of her flower beds cleaned out and shrubbery pruned back.
