|I went to an ostrich farm recently.|
I was on the road all of January. At my parents, out to California to stay with my aunt and grandma, up to Bakersfield to see about miniature trains and ostriches, back to my parents, delayed by weather, delayed by car repairs, delayed by quilt-finishing, but I finally packed up my cat and headed home to the mountains.
I got back to North Carolina, ready to make stuff and get back into internet business. The making stuff happened, but the internet happenings didn't happen because I finally spilled a cup of tea all over my laptop.
It could have been a lot worse. However, I am left without a functioning question-mark key, or an enter key.
Which is problematic in formatting blog posts or asking questions in emails.
So how am I managing this???
I finally got my hands on another keyboard, plugged it into my laptop, and I am using it ONLY for the question-marks and to "enter."
February I was mostly in the printmaking studio, getting my life in order the way you can when you're temporarily seasonally unemployed, and learning everything I could about honeybees, as fast as I could. (much more about that later.)
THEN we reopened the gallery, and I turned off my creative brain and put on my bookkeeping pants, and have been tense in my shoulders, jaw, and eyes ever since. But it's okay; I am working hard to find the balance again, of 'working' and working. What? Oh, you know.
Oh, I also went to Kentucky last weekend to see some people I like.
Enough words; more pictures!

|I went out to California. Again.|
|In California I took myself to the Huntington Library and felt woozy all day.|
|But there were camellias blooming, so that was nice!|
|Amongst numerous adventures, Yvonne, Liz and I found ourselves at a model train club in Bakersfield.|
|Like ya do...|
