School's Out……For Summer!

  Though we have no human children the summer is always a time for our household to rejoice. It is off time for us and a time to be able to work on other projects on the back burner during busy season. My head is so filled with the projects I want to get done that I don't even know where to start. So I procrastinate…   I have several projects started but nothing seems to get me motivated enough to dive in wholly. I think the big reason is that we have had some family losses as of late. A huge part of our lives my little Hayley girl left us a couple of weeks ago. She was my companion, my baby, my best buddy. It was sudden and unexpected and heart wrenching. I thought I would share the rest of my life with her… you can imagine the loss our little family is going through. I know some don't understand that type of attachment to animals, but it is just a part of my family's genetic makeup. Pets=family. They always have. When you treat them as family it is amazing what kind of personalities you see emerge from these little gifts. Some have asked me if I will get another. I can't even fathom it right now. So I will throw myself into projects as soon as I can see my way to do that. And maybe organize my studio. Perhaps that should be the first thing I do.
