Not feeling very talkative...

Ourlittleouting2I haven't been feeling very talkative in the past week or so. I think that maybe it has something to do with the scare my Granny gave us the end of last week and over the weekend. She seems to be doing somewhat better, but its really just a wait and see....and with her in Florida and me all the way up in Oregon....well, it's hard. I can't just jump in my car and run over to visit. Your prayers would be much appreciated.

I'm including a couple of pics from my and Aiden's little outing yesterday. I posted a pic from our lunch at Quizno's yesterday and afterwards I needed a recharge so we went over next door to Starbucks for a coffee for me and a chocolate milk for Aiden. Then we went to the library for videos and books. And the other pics are of a new painting I'm working on and my new easel. It's not the one I Ourlittleouting2posted about earlier....they are giving me a refund on that one (still haven't seen it on my credit card). And even though the refund hasn't come through yet, I decided to buy one locally because my back just couldn't take hunching over my work table anymore.

Hopefully I'll feel back to my old self in the next few days. I just feel kind of introspective at the I've probably mentioned before, when things get tough or stressful I have a tendency to just withdraw inward, which means I disappear for a while. I've become okay with's how God made me and it's how I best deal with stuff. I've been talking to Him quite often this week and that always helps more than anything....wrote some in my prayer journal, did some sketches, and worked a bit on the new painting last Neweasel night...her face and hair are pretty much done and now I need to work on the rest of the piece. I already know what it needs to be came to me while driving to pick up Aiden from his last day of VBS last week, so it's just a matter of doing it.

There have been many bright spots in my week...of course one of them being lunch out with my little guy yesterday....all your sweet comments on my "Etsy Art Goodness" video (thank you!!!), a wonderful surprise package from the sweet Suz (Thanks so much Suz!!! It really made my day and came just when I needed some joy :D ), and snagging another one of Jenn's sweet Lulette houses last night (WOO HOO!), then some time to do a little sketching and painting. My house may be a mess right now, but oh well....I'll get around to it eventually. ;)

Hope you're all having a wonderful Thursday! I'm hoping to be back to my chipper, rambling self soon....I've got lots of ideas for new videos and other fun stuff, but just not feeling in the right frame of mind to do anything about it. If you've emailed me recently, I'm behind on emails....waaaaaaaay behind.....and I've become just awful at keeping up with them. I do read each and every one as soon as I get it, even if it takes me a month to reply. Thank you all sooooooooo much for your encouragement and support!! Much love to y'all!!! xoxo


Much love + blessings,
