On Vacation...........again!

Feels like I just got home from New York and today we head off to the Grand Cayman Islands. Wow, sounds like I'm quite the world traveller doesn't it? Well, I'm really not. Just happens that this summer has been unbelievably busy for us which is unusual to say the least. Most summers we just head up to our little cottage on the shores of Superior and laze around. But John has a business/personal event scheduled in the Grand Caymans so off we go.

When I get home I really have to give some serious thought to how better to utilize the space in my studio. It is not a happy place at the moment. Some of my older work is just taking up too much room and may have to go. Where? Not sure. I may post it on this blog and see what happens or maybe Etsy. Actually I do have some new smaller matted pieces that I'm going to put up when I get back. Thanks Liane for your email asking about that. It doesn't help to have a blog that talks about Daily Paintings in Paint & Thread when you don't ever post any. Not enough time I guess.........that will be my excuse.

Hope your all well and enjoying what is officially the last month of summer for us here in Canada. Oh, it does pain me to say that............ See ya next week.

I have been enjoying your holidays. Keep having them! A cottage on Lake Superior? Just as good. (I'm jealous actually.) BTW we often have summer into the end of Sept here on the west coast. Not always, though.

I love the shores of Lake Superior - it reminds me of when I was young and I'd visit my grandparents in MN and they'd rent a cabin for a week. As soon as we drove through Duluth, it felt like air conditioning compared to the hot humid temps of the Twin Cities.

Enjoy your trip to the Grand Caymans - I'm trying not to be jealous!

Well Cynthia, I just flat am jealous- It was 110 degrees F here today, so I jealous of anything north of me!

Melody, enjoy Cayman, how nice to have a break after your workshop. The turtle farm is fun, they let you pet turtles there. The water if beautiful, have a blast!

I'm not even going to hide the fact I'm horribly jealous, but happy for you too. Have an amazing time!

Loved to hear all about your NY trip as well. That nervous going back to school feeling you wrote about made me laugh. I still have dreams where it's halfway through the school year and I can't find my classroom.
