The grey clouds are finally lifting. One of life's metaphors we can all relate to from time to time.
Happy Skywatch Friday, and may your skies soon clear.

Ever have one of those days? Weeks? Years?
I'm just leaving a quick note to tell everyone that I'll be busy this next week with the latest (and hopefully final) move for a long time.
I'm looking forward to setting up house and studio in the new place and to hopefully creating new work soon.
My journal and ATC commitments will be met as soon as I can clear the deck. After all, you don't want me to create crappy doo-doo, do you? So I'm giving myself permission to take some of the pressure off and get my life settled.
Give me a week or two (tops!) to be back in the saddle.
Thanks for all the snail mail, emails and love you've been sending my way.
See you soon!!

Mim trusted 'Big Chief Standing' so much that she let him convince her to go horseback riding. That was way beyond her comfort zone, but Mim is a trooper!
The one thing I was surprised about was how much Mim loves vodka! We went to Ross' Bar because they're known for their selection of vodkas and their martinis and cosmopolitans. Mim insisted on being photographed in front of all the vodka bottles. (She fell over at least 3 times, I swear.)
Who knew she was such a lightweight!
(I, of course have NO addictions.)
Finally, Mim was ready to go to bed and call it a night. Thank goodness Debra Kay made a special birdhouse for Lolo that was just the right size for Mim. (And she didn't need a reservation!)
Oh my goodness, is that Ms. Emily Rabbit herself who showed up in her purple polka-dot bikini? I think they stayed up all night talking and sharing jelly beans which I hear is the best cure for a vodka hangover!

One of the first angels I made friends with is Joss, aka Soulbrush.
She and I share many things in common including personal (inner) battles.
We will always feel that 'sister' connnection.
The other day I went to my P.O. box and there was a large package from Margaret. We're doing a journal project together ( ArtySoulSisters) but I'm not supposed to be the one that gets the journal after her so I was confused as to what the box was all about.
No wonder she wanted me to make sure I looked in the folder! There were 2 exquisite cards with this image. It took my breath away! And she was so thoughtful to ask me to send the extra one to none other than my "Raven Sister", Renee! Yes Renee, it's in the mail ;) xoxo
Margaret said she was in her favorite store in Illinois when something called out to her..."Lolo!!!"
I photographed her next to my Jobi Pottery dish from my dear old friend Barbara for taking care of her kitty. They look great together but I know Miss Raven will be happier under my beautiful birth mandala by Marianne.
Margaret, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending me all of these goodies. I feel like you know me so well. I hope we meet one day! xoxo
Before I end this post I also want to thank KJ for her wonderful cards that make me smile and for her daily emails just checking in with me.
Many of you know I met KJ once and this weekend we're going to Provincetown for 4 days of fun. We'll be meeting up with Debra Kay (yay!) and maybe Suki??? We'll have to work on her. We'll be missing Mim who is by her MIL's side post surgery along with her hubby. Big hugs Mim!!
Soulbrush and Marianne were hoping to make the long journey, but work and other things have made it impossible. We'll share our memories with you when we get back. I know we'll meet one day!!
Oh, I almost forgot. It's my 3rd Blogiversary!!
Thanks for coming along for the ride ;)
