Day 2-Shelter in place

This is what I finished up today and I started a new one. How are you all keeping busy? I decided to pull out a junk journal and some of my plethora of art supplies from the Redwood Shores NYU campus…aka my craft room/ boy’s bedroom.I have I am having a really rough day today…

Escape from New York

Thank God he is home safely. He seems to be ok but I think a tiny bit freaked out. I must say it is wonderful to hug him and feed him all of his favorite things. He loved the door decoration for his new dorm. Today, of course, he is off to his ex-girlfriend to…

Twenty Four More hours

The boy will be home in 24 hours. He was supposed to arrive on Thursday night but his midterm for tomorrow was canceled and so I told him to get the heck out of dodge right away. The airlines can offer a full refund and they were able to rebook him on a flight tomorrow….

Let pretend…for 5 minutes.

We got together with these beautiful young people yesterday to pretend for five minutes that they are still our babies.

It’s the final countdown

 I am sitting here in class in advanced digital imaging. I am in the final stretch. I have ended up with four classes for this semester. Two are required for the degree…ie The algebra and Oceanography lab. I am also doing a class in architectural drawing so I can explore the idea of moving onto…

So here we go again

Well, four weeks have come and gone so fast and tomorrow we have to say goodbye again. I really hate this, Talk about a Summer romance. Oh to be young and in love. Those two lovebirds made good use of the four weeks.  I am so sad that we have to say goodbye again. No…
