Went in to get my gallbladder out and they decided my appendix had to come out also. So I've been very sore and mopping around the house all week. Beginning to feel a bit better today. By tomorrow I should be up and around, though very slowly! 4 to 6 weeks recovery for an appendix. Oi! Well, it's warmed up anyway, from 48 to 88 degrees in a week, just as New England likes to do. All the flowers are blooming and I need to get my dahlias in the ground! I'll have to get my hubbie to help me out. Not supposed to do any lifting, etc. for a while still. I miss doing my art. But I've really been out of it. Maybe tomorrow! My Dad is coming to visit in June so I'll keep him busy sanding me some frames. He loves to keep busy, at almost 93! Hope I'm that spry at his age!

I've been soooo busy. Held my colored pencil workshop and was so busy having fun, didn't even shoot any photos! Sorry. We were spread out over 3 tables and all the students were great. They asked me to teach a weekly class right after summer.
Then went to the opening at the Brush Gallery and met some wonderful fellow artists. Had a great time. It was an awesome show.
Now I am updating my bird prints in my shops to include the scientific latin names, the person who classified and named the species and the date that was done. I'm hoping that will appeal to people more. Here's one example, but you can see more on my Etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/roxy5235
It's been raining here for about a week, but today the sun finally came out! What a relief! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
