Today was beautiful and hot for Seldovia. 64*. Who knew it could be this warm in May here in Alaska....in Fairbanks where my sister lives it is 80..yikes! Several forest fires there. We have a low moving in here and the wind is picking up. I am so glad that I worked in the garden today.
I planted onions, potatoes, peas, broccolli....herbs....thyme, marjorum, lemon balm, rosemary....need to get the turnip seeds planted tomorrow....I just wore out today....
Well I tried the photo thing one more time and got at least one to load. Off to bed...tomorrow I will post more.

I haven't asked Judith yet if this Muse will have a name. I really should as Muses are very strong and passionate entities.
I worked late last night and got critiques from the Beginners Polymer Clay Sculpture Group. Ever so helpful. I needed to lower the eyelids and that took awhile because I kept bumping the nose and cheeks....so I had to keep redoing them.
The other day at the Craft Fair my friend Judith asked me if I would create a Muse for her. Not just any Muse, but one that is singing and had hands in her lap, as well as having her eyes closed. Hmmmmm....could I really do this. Sounded a little like mission impossible to me, but, never one to shy away from a challenge..... and not feeling especially sharp that day and being in an impoverished state.... I said "yes".
Ok. So. This is where I am. Not as far along as I would want to be, but, certainly not still at the starting gate.
Not bad so far.... still a long way from being done.
