Greta and I just got home and it feels good. Actually, it feels a little muggy because the air hasn’t been on for days, but just knowing we made it home safely is a good feeling. Greta is already tearing into things as if she is discovering our house for the first time all over again. And even though Greta’s shirt says, “What happens at Grandma’s, stays at Grandma’s” I thought I’d share a few highlights.
We spent all day, every day with family. We had dinner with the Marcums and hot tub time at my
‘rents. I cut a lot of hair. 3 heads to be exact. My mom’s, my dad’s and my sister, Patty’s–which is the only one I took a before and after of. I didn’t go to hair school or anything, I just own haircutting scissors and have put them to use a lot over the years. Practice makes
perfect for a fun hobby.
I tracked down two more pieces of my art at Patty’s house:
|A watercolor I did from a photo she took on a trip to Venice. I gave it to her for her birthday.|
|Patty and her husband, Ken, fell in love with a Bobbie Burger painting and commissioned me to do this oversized oil inspired by the original for their kitchen.|
Greta got in lots of cousin time, which was just what she (and I) needed. She had a blast with them.

And of course cousin time wouldn’t be complete without a dance party. Greta wasn’t shy about taking the spotlight there:
Overall, it was a great trip to pass some of the time away from Chris. And once this week is over, his busy-butt will slow down and we can spend some time together. For now, I have a few projects to wrap up and share ASAP….including finding out what to do with this prank “gift” left hanging from our carport:
Ah, nothing quite says welcome home like a busted up, hanging bumper. At least it wasn’t our bumper.
