March marches on…

memory and idea albums

The first week of March came…and went. No new posts on the blog.  I’ve been busy. I missed y’all though.

Instead of writing posts I spent a lot of time in the studio working on memories, ideas and new art pieces. The weather has been very cooperative…several days of soft, gentle rain. There’s nothing I love more than working in the studio, with rain pattering on the roof.

We spent last weekend revamping Dick’s end of the space and setting up a place for him to build models again. That operation takes a large flat area where he can pin down the pieces and leave them to dry. And, while we were working in the studio, the garden continued to show signs of spring.

Today has been cold and winter-like again. Rainy, but not the soothing, patter on the roof, kind of rain. Blustery…the kind of wind that makes me want to curl up somewhere warm with a good book…or write… So.o.o here I am, back at blogging. It has been my intention to be more disciplined about posting this year…you couldn’t tell it by looking at March…But March marches on…St. Paddy’s Day and Easter and my Birthday are still to come this month…so stay tuned. There’s more to come.

see ya soon
