Just a quick post, since my fans (well, Trish) have been clamoring (well, mentioned it once) for one.

Trish came to my studio the other day and we played a bit with wax. That's her above...

Sam and I drove to Kansas on Saturday. We drove to Manhattan and spent the night. We took a scenic drive off the highway and it was really pretty. We drove through a couple of cute little small towns. They reminded me of Melissa, Texas, where my grandma lived for a while. The kind of town that you miss if you blink when you drive by.

We packed up my stuff on Sunday and then headed to Overland Park to stay with Larry and family. I hope they're not getting sick of me - it's the 4th time I've seen them this year and the 3rd time that I've said, "Hey! I'm going to be there tomorrow, can I stay with you?" They're good sports and are willing to put up with my last-minutedness. Is that a word?

Got to see Colleen for a while, too, and the boys played together. I took my camera but completely forgot to take pictures.

One evening we went to a park and got to see a few ducks and lots of geese, including some cute little baby geese.

Could they be any cuter?

We discovered that the adult geese will hiss at you if you get too close to their babies. I managed to catch Mrs. (or Mr.) Goose above in mid-hiss.

My dad and stepmom are visiting this week and we've been hanging out with them. Today they took a tour of the studio. After they left, Sam and his cousin did some painting.

It's so fun watching them play around with it.

I'm going to be busy this weekend packing up stuff for the art league's show. I'm going to start in the morning for a couple of hours.

I was supposed to do a workshop this weekend but nobody signed up for it. I need to figure out how to market those book workshops better...

I'm also doing some editing of some Word documents for someone that I know that works at UNT.

...and I need to prepare for my book workshop on Monday in conjunction with the book show at TCC.

Oh, and I'm going to get together with Trayc - she finished up her Waxy Buildup work. We're going to work on a proposal and figure out where to send it.

Schwew! Busy...

I had a lot of fun. We'll have to do it again soon.

We enjoyed having you and Sam stay with us! Your pictures of the geese turned out well. I want to take one of your workshop classes! Maybe someday... Ellen
