The creative streak

I am back from the land of sunshine and wind.
I loved every minute of it, just basking in the sun, laying around
and just relaxing.  The hubster not so much, he is a more
lets go do something guy.  And truthfully there was
not much to do on the island.  We went on an open air
bus tour around the island.  I liked that they showed
us all the highlights of the lsland, and we went
to a local distillery where they made the
liquor that they sold.  All in all for a free
trip it was beautiful.
Then of course you come back to real life, and
before you know you are back in your routine. Laundry, cooking, dusting.  I have been
making a lot of art since I came back, I have been inspired, and have been
in the studio every afternoon, getting those projects done that needed my
attention plus getting those half finished projects moving again.
So while this creative streak lasts I am going to milk its for
all its worth.  So I am off to the studio, and will talk to
you soon.
