goodbye dear summer...


We sent summer off with some good old fashion fun at the Chelsea Fair. We attended the figure 8 demolition derby and tractor pull, saw a baby cow being born and visited lots of other farm animals in the five barns at the fairground, went on a few rides with the kids (yep, i went on that one), drank $1.00 lemonades and had many bags of fresh popcorn. We enjoyed time and meals with cousins and grandparents and got ourselves settled back in and ready for a new school year. Today the house is quiet and I am busy in the studio and out of the studio. It's only the 1st day but I welcome the routine, the quiet and the time. That, and I know we have a long weekend in Northern Michigan just around the corner : )

You are a brave woman to go on that fork ride! Sweet, quiet relief to be painting again, no?

The IPE (Interior Provincial Exhibition) was eagerly awaited each Sept. when my kids were little. They wanted to see if they'd won any ribbons for their stitching or pumpkin or apple doll! I miss those days.
Glad to hear you have some quiet to paint in your studio. Can't wait to see what you're up to!
