Welcome to my blog

Today is a beautiful rainy spring day in Seldovia. A little wind, a little sun and here and there some sprinkles of rain.

I am making some homemade soup and finishing up some artwork. I am so glad you stopped by..please get yourself a cup of coffee and join me in my kitchen studio.

I have a regular studio upstairs ...but to tell you the truth..my kitchen table is where I do most of my art....with a cup of coffee and good friends stopping by to chat. Sit down and stay awhile..I am never too busy for company!

Hot Water Tanks and Teenage Girls....Oh My!

Well....things are interesting at my house these days.  My granddaughter Gavin has come to live with me again.  She has stayed with me off and on many times and actually was born while her mom lived here in this house with me.  I got to help deliver her....what a rare privilege that was.....but...I digress .....teens have way more energy than I could ever have imagined...oh my gosh....how times have changed.  Tonight is Seldovia's Homecoming Dance and Basketball Tournament ....the girls are all getting dressed up and ready.

Then in the middle of all the boyfriend hysteria....oh did I forget to mention she has a boyfriend????? ok...in the middle of all of that...the hot water tank...springs a leak....this child showers at least twice a day....and washes loads of laundry....mostly TOWELS!.....the poor tank probably just wore out trying to keep up.  Or it might have been that it was 20 years old.....really?...I thought they lasted longer than that!!   My roof is still in need of repair...the blue tarp is holding so far and my truck is still not running......

Anyway she is over at her moms right now..... a break for me from after school ....tromping through the house looking for something to eat.

And while all of this is going on...I am trying to sculpt and get ready for a project being offered on the Beginners Polymer Clay Sculpture Group...and build up inventory for summer and the tourist season.....so much for my quiet life!!!
