"...the report of my death was an exaggeration." - Mark Twain
The ending of summer brings us a great deal of relief - from heat, from home improvement projects and from a fearful period where my husband's work outlook was more than uncertain.
Since this spring we have completed construction of a garage, built a fence around our entire property, put a steel roof on our house (and used the remaining pieces for our hen house), insulated our shed, installed a new window in the basement, repaired our stove & purchased a new computer after a lightning strike, and begun painting the basement room which is being converted into our son's room (thus the new window).
Our son wants an ocean themed mural on the walls of his new room - a prehistoric ocean! So in addition to normal daily lessons, the kids will be getting an extra dose of art over the next week or so.
I'm so glad the days are returning to the normal routine. We've really had too much going on and it's stressed us all a bit. I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted here... I can assure you it won't happen again. - Joyce Brandon

I wondered what you were up to! I figured you were just super busy creating a lot of great pieces. :) Take care!
