Let Year 2 in the Studio Begin!
This year is my 3rd of retirement, but the 34 years of teaching along with the 17 years of going to school means one thing: vacation mentality. I took a break from sewing and a break from Weight Watching - it was a great 4-pound holiday. We celebrated with the Crystal Lake/Lakewood families on the 23rd, the Sheehans on the 24th, and the White/Thompsons on the 25th. Here's Grandpa John with Nicki, Sammy, Jack,Ben, and Natalie. And what looks to be a pile of quilts is actually Ryan and Brandon, zzzzzzz-ing away despite the cold, sunny day. The boys eventually woke up for cinnamon rolls and a morning movie.
So all the kids are back in school, and I'm still having difficulty ending vacation. I have projects to work on and must stop this lolligagging. Perhaps today will be the day!
