Midsummer memories

Not the happiest summer of my life. A difficult divorce in my daughter's family and the closing of the fabric store where I had a part-time job for many years.

Here are photos, in no special order...


Garden flowers from the front yard.

We pose by that front garden...floaty cotton dress is cool on super hot days.

A garden party art show and much fun, mot much $$$$!

Trying to paint my daughter and granddaughter together...

Hydrangeas are fabulous this year...I try watercolor...


Neighbors and Steve out by the hydrangea garden...

My favorite photo of Steve this year...

The store is closing is really happening! Shoppers are loading up!
The last day at Hancocks, Fayetteville, AR.
Horses at my brother's....

The view from my daughter's deck.

My granddaughter, almost 17.


Her birthday...beautiful cake! Coconut!

Making coconut shrimp for my girls...


Smudging cweremony with the sage smudge sticks which I made using that Oregon trail sage!


Another view of the lake.

The family room after "staging"!

A wonderful moment, holding my new great niece!

He uncle Dan holding her..


Fresh peaches!

Grandkids....the younger ones...

They are back in school already!

Some days it has been cool enough to paint out in my backporch/studio!


And finally, Laura and the twins!


Life is good, even with challenges!

Your friends are glad to see the collage of photos and to catch up your summer. You are right, life is full of challenges! A friend sent me this quote recently that you might like.
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." I seems like you are doing just that!!
