More Progress 


Joint starting page: starting at upper left (clockwise)- Gale, Anna, Karen, Cathe

I’m determined to get Anna’s book completed by years end. So, that would be by tomorrow night! Yikes! Nothing like a good deadline to move projects along.
This holiday break has been scattered due to Dave’s week off. It hasn’t been a “week off” because work tasks were incomplete prior to Christmas. Supposedly he’s finally done with everything and he can take over dog care. Hazel has been a handful! She had turned our household upside down. Eventually we will gain a better schedule, but any art focus has been tossed aside. Add in some bad joint pain (me) plus the rest of the holiday season and I’ve not made progress with anything. I did manage to wrap gifts for a party we didn’t attend (due to my body feeling like crud). Tree decorating only happened thanks to Dave. Maybe next year will be better.

I’ll post more images as the pages come to completion.  The sun is shining and the dogs are off on a walk. Bird is out of his cage getting attention while I break from colored pencils. Life is pretty darn good today!

  1. Love how this page is looking Gale. Life always gets in the way doesn’t it – hope the joints are easing up, I expect the cold weather doesn’t help. No rush on my account, I won’t be back in Australia till the 14th January now.

    1. You’re having quite the extended holiday! I’ve unfortunately been sick since the first. Hopefully today I’ll get on antibiotics and kick the infection. *Sigh *

      1. The extension to my trip is not really holiday unfortunately – my brother died just before Christmas so I am staying on for the funeral. We knew he was sick, but hadn’t expected the end so soon.

      2. Oh Anna! I’m sorry to hear about your brother. My condolences to you and your family. A big hug to you! Safe journeys home.
