Getting back to it!


Here I am back at it. Not in my studio yet. Recovering from surgery and a virus 



Revisiting old art work from 2012 when Girl Scouts celebrated 100 years!

Blooms from the garden 

Brief visit to my studio and it was freezing cold

Having some slight cabin fever

Follow up surgical appointment went well!

I asked the question on social media if I should keep this going after three months

Me in the midst of this amazing orange tree in my MIL’s backyard 




The stash wall in my studio

First day back in my studio with layers of warm clothes



I’ve been working on this wall quilt a bit. Using Hopscotch and this digital panel on of of my watercolors 

Finally made a loaf of sourdough!

Took a wee bit of a break from this process, but now I am back. Also back to the gym.

Home Sick and all is well


Last day of our trip to San Francisco

Went grocery shopping, and have a severe sore throat, which is never a good sign

Got a nasty virus

And a little watercolor of a pink and blue trailer. This paint book is the same size as my sketchbook 


Binge watched Messiah. I would highly recommend it



My body actually aches from coughing




Steve stayed home from work today because he caught the bug


In week two of the virus, I am taking it easy because I heard you can have a relapse pretty easily. Thankfully, I have no deadlines, so I am home. The garden is blooming

It’s January!


My word for 2020 is BEGIN

A big milestone for me is to fly to San Francisco to visit our kids and grands

So good to see our grands again!

Spent a day with our daughter and it was the most fabulous day! 

Pizza night at Ragazza in San Francisco

Big goal to walk down a hill and back up the hill. Yay!

It was great to be able to walk to downtown Noe Valley

I got last of exercise walking up and down stairs 

Made it Alamo Square to see our daughter and get some delicious coffee. What a gorgeous view!

Lady Falcon Coffee and we saw Hamilton that night! It was so amazing!

Breakfast on the last day at AHA FRESH. Bananas Foster French toast


Me on the plane heading home with a glass of champagne! Cheers to you!
