So I did manage to read a book this month - Marley & Me by John Grogan - and it was a wonderful book. It's non-fiction, an account of the author's life with an overzealous 100 lb lab. Marley's puppy antics made me laugh out loud because I could see Rosi's behavior echoed in the words. Thank heavens Rosi is not as exhuberant as Marley was! But of course the book covers Marley's life - and so the end was very sad, as we all wish our pets could be with us so much longer than they are. But in spite of the inevitable, I found the book full of hope and love, and I would definitely recommend it.
As soon as I get the computer working decently, I'll have more artwork to share with you!

I finished two more pieces on Thursday. One of them is below. It's 7x7 (approx) and is dryer sheets covered with a sheer which was burned away in spots. I never claimed that I could draw. My daughter saw it and gushed over how great it was and then said, so what is it mom? Some sort of lily? Finally she figured out it's a bird. Ah well.

As always, I welcome your feedback!
Recently I learned that two people who are very dear to me have started blogs. I invite you to take a look, if you'd like. Neither of these are "art" blogs.
First off, my Aunt has a blog! She has been writing her thoughts on the weekly gospel reading in her church bulletin for a while now, and with the help of my cousin, her writings are now available on her blog. If you are interested in her wisdom, please visit From Dee's Desk.
Secondly, my very dear friend, whom I met on the first day of 6th grade and with whom I have shared many adventures, has started a blog. She is an avid outdoors person and cyclist. She's also a great person. Check out her adventures at Dance the Tide.

In spite of all the growing, I'm glad I don't have newspapers all over my kitchen floor any more!

So, let's see. I did read a book in March. It is Tangerine by Edward Bloor. It's the book my 12 year old DS told me I should read. I agree - it was a good book. I really liked the main character. He was real and a true good person. I would definitely recommend this book to the tween age group.
