another big week

Wed. I HAD to go to the Ojai Spa and have a delicious lunch and relaxing facial in a beautiful area laying around a pool on a gorgeous day in Ojai with 8 other women in white robes and spa shoes. AKA heaven.......

Next day: Good friend Susan with help of daughter Maili had a wedding shower for my daughter LE at Opal in Santa Barbara. It was heaven times 4! Good friends, good food, good fun and happy LE.

Just when I thought I knew how to do this I screwed it all up.....heavy sigh.....Anyway Earl is back and he had a good time... brought back a trophy and is in another VW magazine article on the Sacramento show.
I sold 3 little collages at Art in the Park Shell Beach but spent the money on some metal yard art. I have decided that will be my new garden...metalwork and succulents.
LE comes next week for business and a wedding shower. I got the invite today. It is so sweet...just like Susan who is throwing the event.
Earl's Aunt and Uncle are coming this weekend we just found out. I need to try and make the house look less like a studio and more like a home......not an easy task.
I may just get a website soon. LE is going to talk me through it tonight I think. Stay tune.
Here is an interesting site for anyone who loves folkart type stuff.

the cruise

We had a great time. It just went too fast. I think I like Avalon the best. I had not been there since I was 12. But really it did not seem to have changed much.
We followed up the cruise with a 600 mile cruise in the 'vert with friends Luke and Maki in their 'vert. Other than at times it got up to 103 degrees (not in my comfort zone) it was a great drive through the Sequoias. We saw the Sequoia tree Big Sherman and heard a guy tell his wife "come here and I'll show you big Sherman." Not the highlight of the trip.
Other news:
Carol and I have put out the word about our journaling class and nailed down most of the details. It is Sept 10.
I have signed up to go to Art & Soul in Monterey in Feb.
Earl is in COLO at a car show.
LE and Jon registered at Macy's for the wedding which I still don't know the date of.
Jill and I went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We loved it!
I sold my Art from Scrap piece. I don't know for how much.
I have gotten the second self portrait RR journal....this is so exciting & fun!
Tomorrow I go to the 3rd Dinosaur Caves Art in the Park Show.....Maybe I will actually sell a painting.
And tomorrow night my favorite HBO shows are on.
Also I am really sick of this heat!
OK Now I am pretty caught up....
