Memorial Day Weekend

I've been out of the blogging loop...and jumping through other hoops...

First, the recital for my music students went well...all performed wonderfully.  A nice finish to the school year!  I usually don't teach lessons through the summer.  Everybody gets a break...and all are busy with their summer activities.  Starting up in the fall is always something we can look forward to,...and we'll be ready!

Next, over the Memorial Day weekend, I made a dash to Denver to visit family.  The weather was very warm...yep, it felt like summer!  I took my camera with me...thinking I would snap numerous photos.  But I did not take a single picture!!  What's with that??  I just couldn't be bothered!  Really???  Sorry...can't explain it. 

But, when I got home, I was ready to snap some photos.  (I'm rolling my eyes at myself, here.)

Anyway, Cory found a wonderful cup that looks a bit like the calico cat I miss so much.  She gave it to me on this trip, and I love it.

Also, she gifted me with some very tasty shortbread cookies from her trip to London.  Fantastic!!  I was fortunate enough to get a quick look at the pictures from her trip, too. 

On Sunday we attended an Art Fair downtown; the varied artworks were amazing!  At one booth I found a framed print of a batik painting that I just had to purchase!  I met the artist, had an interesting visit about her work, and she personalized the back of the painting for me.   Very cool.

It will be hung above the soon as I can get to it.  Trying to get back in the loop...
