In five days I’ll be leaving for Alaska for my “watercolor woodshedding in a winter wonderland“. My art supplies and some clothes have been packed
and shipped to The Grouchy Old Woman Bed and Breakfast. (my woodshed for a week) To my amazement, the package arrived exactly when the nice guy at the post office said that it would.
Being from central Louisiana, I’m looking forward to experiencing a little winter. I understand that Alaska’s sunrises and sunsets are beautiful this time of year. I saw neither one when I was there in July. When I went to bed the sun was shining…when I woke up the sun was shining. Other than the length of the days, it should feel a little more normal…whatever that is.
I’m looking forward to visiting with Sharon Brower and her mother, Blanche. It will be good to be back on the peaceful shores of Daniel’s Lake, which I understand were not so peaceful last month.
Blanche had a rather eventful December, with pneumonia, a broken arm and a bruised hip. Thankfully, she is mending very well. I’m glad…Blanche adds to the ambiance.
