What I did on my summer vacation
I didn't intend to be gone from this space for so long, but with so much constantly going on around here, something had to give. I guess the blog it was....
Anyway, since my last post so much has gone on that I didn't have the time to write about. Today I am posting the abbreviated version, and planning to be back here more regularly.
+Cracked pots was great. A lot busier than I expected....looking forward to doing that again next summer.
+Took two trips to the midwest without kids. One for fun. One for a funeral, sad, but really good to see family that I haven't seen in so long.
+Successfully grew a garden. Froze a bunch, and tried pickling for the first time.
+Said goodbye to our sweet springer spaniel Porter.
+Hung out at the pool a lot.
+Went on the best family vacation. Camping, canoeing, hiking, swimming, hot springs, staying in an old rustic cabin for a few days and playing more yatzee and uno than ever I thought
+Taught a bunch of mosaic classes.
+Our volvo "died" on a mountain, without cell service, not fun.
+Spent the better part of a week test driving minivans. Bought one. Love it.
+Had lots of out of town visitors.
+Spent a few days at the beach.
+Attended a couple art shows as a shopper.
+Got two boys ready for school. That's right 2!!
+Brought my work to a new store in Olympia, which is off to a great start.
+Finished 3 quilts and a couple custom orders.
+Planned another school art sale. So much work, and it's not over yet.
I'm sure there is more I could write about, but don't want to bore you anymore with all the details. I have lots to tell in the crafting department, but will have to be back for that...
