“What’s In Your Backpack?”

I have the hardest time packing for a trip! What to wear is no big deal, but when it comes to what I might NEED I think long and hard. I usually take a back pack. This time I took a tote and a back pack. I might get bored.. I might want to do sketching, I might want look for ideas in a cool magazine or two or three,..  I should read that issue of What Women Create:Business. What about a notebook for writing?  I always get ideas. So, I should take some pens too. And I have to read my Bible. Will I need my markers? An eraser and pencil sharpener? The list goes on. ..and ON!

This is Part Two of my last blog. There is no vacation for an artist ! Unless you knock us out! Haha! OH! Did I mention my trip was only an overnight trip?  Haha!  My husband usually asks me if I would like to put my STUFF in the back of the van? “NO!” I say, “I might NEED it!” 
Help me! Haha!

Bicycle Built For Two

The last few months of preparing for Surtex have been grueling at times.  It is amazing to think how sitting at desk is so hard on your body.  Today we took some time off for a nice ride through the parks in town.  The roses are peaking everywhere. We passed garage sales, people walking dogs, and once in a while the smell of breakfast was in the air.  That always makes me smile.  Our bicycle built for two was a very good investment in time together many years ago.
