Peace Out

I’ll be taking a break from my blog for a few weeks.

I have two days of work this week and then will be going on vacation. I’ll be camping with some of my multitudinous family. Seven of us ten children will be there, plus some siblings' spouses, plus my parents, plus an unknown number of nieces and nephews, plus a couple dogs. We’ve been going to the same place every year for about forty years and I’m looking forward to it. I went for the first time when I was six weeks old and I’ve only missed once or twice in almost thirty-three years.

The proverbial, but exquisite, camp fire.

After camping, I’m looking forward to spending time with family and friends, working on an illustration project, making a quilt for my brother and his wife who are expecting their first child, finishing some jewelry projects and working on some new ones, doing some woodworking, reading good books, traveling....

I just consolidated my eight sticky notes of to do lists etc. So now that I have my life all organized my summer will be a lot better. I guess that’s what happens when you keep sticky note pads in four locations in your house.

Peace out, Martha


  1. "consolidated my eight sticky notes of to do lists"!

    Reminds me of my desk...only it's piles of notes, not just stickies!

    Love the photos! The bird is fantastic!

  2. Have a great trip! I was always jealous of your family (clan?) yearly gathering. Always sounded like such an amazing bonding time. Say hi to everyone for me. :) (Ben)

  3. thanks for the shout out on the snake catch.

    you'd better believe there's more where that came from!

    looking forward to the weekend with you, etc. etc.
