My vacation is over!  That's always sad but it also is always good to get back home.

I was in Ocean City, MD with my one sister, her two daughters and her two grandsons.  We went last year and had a great time, so we went back this year.  Needless to say, my eating habits weren't good; oh the intention was there but they didn't play out.  So I'm back to square one; still doing simply filling.  I had a doctor's appointment prior to leaving for the beach and he suggested I enjoy myself and get back on track when I return.  So that's the plan!  He also upped my thyroid meds a teeny bit to move my metabolism along.

But anyway, I'm back and back on track and though it looks like I'm starting over - I'm not defeated yet!

So I see another month has gotten away from me!  I really don't want to give up blogging; but life often takes over!!

I did ANOTHER Paint Nite and had tons of fun; I'm also signed up for another in August and have lots of friends coming along for that one.  This is the painting I did this time:

My dogs were a little bottom heavy; but I thought it turned out great!  This painting was very close to me...I see Toby & Lucy looking up in the sky at Keyser (represented by that bone shaped cloud).  I had signed up for this painting before losing Keyser (or even aware that I was) and now it seems like it was a glance into the future.

I do LOVE the Paint Nites though - there's one going on this afternoon with some spots left; I'd love to go but I'm getting ready for:

V A C A T I O N!!!!!

This is the second (hopefully annual) trip to Ocean City, MD with my sister, nieces and great-nephews!  Sure to be fun and entertaining; oh and I can taste those hard shell crabs already!!

An Update!

This past week a co-worker and I went to Paint Nite.  If you've never heard of this or have been afraid to attend one - you really need to check them out!  They are a lot of fun and you need positively no artistic ability!  Trust me art is not my talent but even my painting came out good:
Mine doesn't look like the artist's nor anyone else's in the room - but it looks like something!  I'm doing another in July and am really looking forward to it.
CC and I went yard selling and wine testing yesterday.  The one winery was having a festival in honor of their dog Rusty's birthday!  There was an artist there doing caricature drawings.  I showed him this photo on my phone:
And asked him to do just Keyser.   I LOVE IT:

Yes, I'm Still Alive!

I'm really really trying to maintain this blog, but blogger just isn't always cooperative and it does it on both my home and work computers.  I can only assume my account is corrupt or something......I really don't want to lose everything.

I like blogger better than wordpress, it is just so much more simplier to use!

So bare with me as I work out the glitches....
