The age old question, where did the time go? A busy summer visiting family and friends in Florida. Because of the pandemic we had not gathered in 2 1/2 years. It was so wonderful to reconnect. Spent time on the beach, walking, swimming, canoeing, visiting and reading. Let's not forget going to Lake Jessup in the evening to see all the alligators. When you shine your flashlight into their eyes they are reflective. Quite beautiful and eerie at the same time.
Camping with friends from across the state when I returned home to Washington. In fact, we pulled off a couple of camping trips.
I have a new gallery called Elements in Joseph, Oregon. This has been my first year at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Washington as well. Lots of work preparing jewelry for the 15th annual Little Spokane Artist Tour in late September, we had the most glorious fall day during the event. Next up is the Sun City Oro Valley Artisan Event in Arizona in November. Followed by Christmas by the Creek in early December. Lots of jewelry to be made! New designs to be imagined.
The fall yard clean up is process though surprisingly this late in the season I still have dahlias and zinnias blooming. Fall is my favorite season, days in the 60's - 70's, cool nights and mornings. The trees are changing color etc. however it's currently 35 degrees this morning... I'm not quite ready for this!
I hope fall is a beautiful season for my friends, family and people I've yet to meet!
