Amazing Road Trip

We had such an amazing get together with my children and grandchildren.  The only one that coldn't be there was Aaron, who had to work.  We met a t Max and Erma's for lunch and then went thrifting, my favorite thing to do.  John had to get back to work and Michele and Lina went one direction and Alexis, Jim and I went another.  We were so excited to find Dick Blicks right down the road from my granddaughter's apartment.  Of course, we had to shop.  Jim got some glazes for pottery and I got Golden Digital Ground Clear (Gloss) to transfer photos to any other surface.  I'm excited to try it.  Oh, I also got a bone folder.  Then we dropped off Lexi and we try to head home.  We got as far as I71 and it was CLOSED!  Everyone going that direction had to be rerouted which took us about two hours to get back to I71.  We were behinds trucks the whole way so we couldn't see where we are going.  By the time we got on the road it was past dinner time and I don't do well with hunger.  We stopped at the Amish restaurant and had chicken.  It was yummy and I was in a better mood with my tummy full.  We got home at 8:00.  Amazing!

I'm Off To See My Children and Grandchildren.

It's going up to 50 degrees today in Ohio and I can see grass peeking through the snow.  OK, I have spring allergies so I have to take my Mucinex but the warm weather is so worth it!  We are going to Columbus today to visit with My children and grandchildren.  I'm very excited to see them.  Great day for a road trip!

OK, Spring can come any time now!

A Quick sketch of my home. It's snow covered now but I sketched/watercolored this in the autumn. Yesterday I started a painting but I am not happy with the results so far. I always get stuck at the "ugly stage". I put it up where I can see it. Maybe the answer will come.

Tuesday I found a new Dentist who is going to make me a new mouth guard. My dog Charlie chewed up my $300 mouth guard for TMJ. Without it my jaw clicks, grinds, pops, and hurts. When the Dentist was taking the impressions he said that he had to use a small impression tray because I have a small mouth. I don't think that anyone who knows me would say that. Thanks Dr. Hamm! Now all I have to do is make the body as small as the mouth.
