monday morning

Feeling a bit lost on this Monday morning after a weeks vacation.
I spent wonderful time with my family and my Nana who was in the hospital and is now going home. It has been so long I think she wondered if she would ever see her home again. I wondered too. She is 93 and very determined. Her sister was also in the hospital for a shorter time and passed away two mornings ago. I still can't believe it. She was the baby of the family at 88 and I am going to miss her terribly. She was one of my favorite people. A thumb twiddler, a lover of people, a free spirit, a great hugger, a wonderful friend, an Aunt who was more like a grandmother.
I am so lucky to know these two special women. I lost my grandparents very young and adopted my husbands as my own, and lucky me they adopted me too.
I think I am going to work on twiddling my thumbs more often.


  1. DANG! death is such a drag! So sorry. Your inspired work - so wonderful though. LOVE!

  2. I'm sad to hear that you are missing your aunt.
    I sent out a package for you today... hope it might lift your spirits a little. I need to mail you another piece separately- just an envelope, but its an accompaniment to the one I sent today. I didn't have it ready in time because it was sort of an afterthought. I'll send that tomorrow if I can :) Gee

  3. Thanks Linda Sue.
    Gina I am really looking forward to it. Thanks!!

  4. 22- console
    the position of the consoler's head and gaze for me are very comfort evoking :) I love this little drawing. Your people who comfort, show affection and embrace each other (amongst and as well as the others doing other things :) ) are captured so adeptly with your straightforward and simple, yet highly sensitive lines. Even some of the people doing nothing Exude and are charged with so much emotion and personality. That is my impression anyway. :)

  5. Thanks Gina, I like your impression.
