The lazy days of summer have been pleasant thanks to family and friends who have welcomed me in the States, taken care of me, even pampered me.
Inevitably, the flying theme appears in my sketching: jet wings, airports,
meals on planes, and
passengers strapped in.
Any subject that doesn't move too much is good, like my sister's aging pug.
Then there are things that I can't find in Tunisia, like root beer. I confess to being on a root beer binge.
I've sketched and stitched just about every day. I've met up with sketchers and quilters, and I've spent money in art stores and quilt shops. Some excellent museums and libraries have afforded me hours of wonder and enjoyment.
It has been a wonderful holiday, a much-needed change in pace to stop the lists in my head, to forget momentarily the "TO-DOs," and the responsibilities, and to re-energize.
But, you know, all the places I've visited are so clean that it's almost boring...I guess I'm ready to go home and face the challenges.
