I haven't written a blog in what seems like 100 years. Life sometimes gets in the way. I also haven't painted in a few months. THAT is the hardest for me to believe. If I don't have time to totally immerse myself in a painting I just won't start it.
Drewbie and I planned a trip to Pensacola, FL this month to dip our toes in the surf and get sand in our suits. If you have never seen or felt the beautiful, silky white sand on Pensacola Beach put it on your list of destinations. Our lodging in Pensacola is among some of the finest in the nation. The Walton Inn. Never heard of it? LOL Millie and Fred are the most thoughtful hosts. This vacation is more than sun and sand! It's having the best time possible with our long distance besties.
This could account for the lack of painting. When we planned the trip we just said, "Hell with it, we'll find the money!" You know, sometimes the Universe just steps in and provides.
So I got the beads out and got busy. Because while the Universe does step in and make shit happen, it just might need a little cooperation from me. I have been setting up every Saturday at the Crawfordsville Farmer's Market. This is my first year for this and it is really a pretty cool Saturday morning destination. Walk down Pike St. and you'll see veggies, flowers, plants, eggs and maybe even a hen clucking! There is a coffee vendor and the gal across from me sells the most amazing breads and cinnamon rolls!
If you have always wondered if pigs fly... I am here to tell you they do! I see one each week at the BBQ truck. You can even watch artists from Athens Art Gallery getting their creative mojo on. If you haven't been to the Farmer's Market get down there this Saturday morning and support your local folks. I'll have funky new items each week. Feel free contribute to the Pensacola or Bust fund. I won't be mad about it :-)
Who am I? Wife, mother, grandmother, friend, quirky kinda chick with a laugh that is too loud and a sense of humor that is at times a bit warped.
