greetings from the deep dark south!! we almost didn't make the flight but that's a Whole Other Story (one that aged me at least 58 years. at least!).
yes, the fire has been cranking but company is well worth the weather conditions.
my sister has booked us both into art classes with this amazing artist (who also happens to be my sister's-husband's-father's-sister's-husband, or more simply put, my brother-in-laws's uncle, or even more simply, uncle wayne)
his skill is way way beyond my comprehension but i'm looking forward to being challenged and stretched another way. yay!
