Full of summer activities

So sorry friends,
I have been busy busy plus I have managed to get laryngitis. Great during Italian class, but it does give me a sexy rasp.
Since I last wrote I have managed to...
1. Get this silly tattoo. I know it's here for good. Luckily I can not see it. What was I thinking. Daughter is totally disgusted with me.

2. Drive in a car to Alabama and back with my daughter, Danica race car driver the second. We did manage a stop at the Cracker Barrell! My first experience there. And it's true, they have a lot of sock monkeys in the store.

3. And there's always art either swimming in my head or on the paper. Hope to write my children's story about Little Plate before I forget.

So that's it in a nutshell. Thanks for visiting. Xxoo T

Almost full of summer

This will be my last week of school before summer vacation. I am thinking of how I can use my time wisely. I know its good to relax and dream, but it's a gift to have so much time off and I want to use it well. So far I will have company for five days, a drive to the University of Alabama with Chloe for Bama Bound, and a trip out of the country with my friend Lorraine. I don't even have to tell you where we are going. You should know.

I am in love with these sock monkey painting/collages created by first graders. Sad to give them back. They crack me up.

My basil and cherry tomatoes are growing well. It's my first growing season. I am suspicious that my bigger tomatoes are going the way of the strawberries- deer. Will have to research this before it's too late.

I am in need of a good book to read. Please offer suggestions. I don't like fantasy too much. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting. XxooT
