wow I have not posted anything in like 3 months!

I have still been busy......creating art and working on art.........also busy with transitions with work.......and the holidays. I unfortunately sometimes neglect my blogs and I really need to try to be more regular about posting here again. I have no idea where I left off before...........and what I have not yet posted.....I do know I do not always post all my artwork on my blogs maybe I will just begin fresh come the New Year. I cannot believe this weekend we will be heading into yet another New Year's Eve and New Year's Day and NEW YEAR! Seems like we just began 2017 and now we are going to start 2018! It has been very cold here and it is lightly snowing at the moment with a winter advisory for later tonight and into tomorrow. I imagine I won't be going anywhere today, other than out to get a gallon of milk for my son. I figure anything else I might need can wait. ALTHOUGH......maybe I will need to go get some coffee too......though I have a lot already of different kinds in my cupboards I could always experiment with. During the holidays I try to buy ahead so I can avoid going out to any stores over the I am pretty well set except for his milk. He goes through milk about as fast as I do coffee. Here's to 2018! May it be the best blessed and abundant year for us all yet!
