Good Things

Monday, May 18th, 2009

Well, Scooter is definitely a good thing. He has made our life a little more interesting and gotten us off our duff to get him outside several times a day. It is the key to housebreaking — training the owners!!

Here are some more photos. I promise this is not turning into a dog blog. We gave him a bath and now his hair is a little curlier.



He is such a funny boy. This is how he drinks his water.


You looking at me?


I received the other two collages that I purchased from the Collage Mania auction to support the American Cancer Society.

This one is by my friend, Carol Larson in Petaluma. It is very textural and is called Nightfall. I love her work and am so happy to have a piece in my collection.


The other is by my friend Carol Suto from the East Bay area of California. I met her through Liz Berg. I have always been a fan of her work.


It is also a good thing that I am making progress on all of the stuff  I need to get done before I get on a plane Friday morning and head for Kansas City. I have been filling in my wardrobe with some new summer clothes and footwear. I just love these Merrill’s that I picked up over the week-end.


Another good thing is that tomorrow, I am dropping all of my duties and having a fun day with Sue Reno who is visiting from Pennsylvania. I will bring her by to see my messy studio and then Terry is picking us up and we are driving to Philomath (near Corvallis) to see Karen Miller’s big show and a High Fiber Diet meeting. We will take a leisurely drive through the wine country and stop for lunch.
