Tea for Tuesdays...iced Raspberry diet tea with plenty of ice...
I have spent the day in the studio and worked on my first month's income and sales....I am one quarter short for the next month's rent. I am so grateful to all who have come in to support me and the hugs just keep on coming. I put up the new labels by Hayley's paintings and the article is still bringing new visitors in to see her works. I also had an antique oak bar from a lawyer's receiving room...martini time was a vital ritual in their daily schedule... and even though it needs some sanding and a new finish topcoat ...I think it is beautiful with all it's rustic historical presence. I worked on my beginnings for a collage for a cancer fund raiser but alas I did not get too far in the process...several patrons came in to pick up their books and see the studio space and to catch up on all the latest excitement. I am totally amazed at how quickly this month flew by...my next month I am hoping to get more time to create my own works...I am itching to work on a the canvas I need to gesso. Somehow when you apply the gesso it makes me feel as if I am on my way...one step at a time.
Ken has a long day tomorrow with open house for the parents so tonight we headed for our little favorite Ruby Tuesday to just collapse and relax with one another. I then headed over to pick up Ken's medications and finish the grocery shopping before the weekend...it is a holiday so everyone will want to Grill just one more time. The weather is supposed to be great...we have two 85 year old friends getting married on Saturday with a Sunday morning brunch at the Country Club to celebrate. In the afternoon Dawes Arboretum has their Bluegrass and Barbecue
all day festival...I am hoping Ken and I can get down there and enjoy the music and special treats from the grills in our town . The symphony is also playing later in the afternoon with fireworks at dusk. It is becoming a special way to enjoy Nature and the Arts and close down the summer of 2010 here in Licking County.

Time to get a new license...Yikes
