|Sara, our "third" daughter, flew in from California for the shower|
We crammed in a lunch at the National Harbor Center so we could see Chris as well. Oh, forgot to say Mark flew from Detroit into Baltimore to be around for the weekend. We flew out Monday morning to separate destinations - he back to Detroit, I marching to Star Mt. What a crazy, crazy schedule we've had going on.

Had massive wind last week which knocked down some enormous aspen in our woods, including one close inside the fence. Out came the chainsaw and we quickly got that cleaned up - another new pile of logs. It's astounding how many downed trees there are in our woods. Could take us years to get it all up - Mark wants to hire someone to make a dent, we'll see.
Last post before my travels to the east coast. Baby Shower!

I came back to empty hummingbird feeders and pee on our newspapers left in the driveway (this happened last year when we left for a few days - we think coyote - marking territory, or making a statement on their opinion of Wall Street Journal).
Those are chickens underneath the farm equipment - not the best place I think - where is their guard dog?
Finished all my paintings for the show. Huge relief. The last one is being framed as we speak. After I'm back from Tiffany's shower, it will be time to take them all and hang them at the gallery. We'll see if anyone notices...
Also finished another book in the midst of everything. The Postmistress by Sarah Blake - enthralling story at the beginning of World War II.
Mark is back for the weekend, then off again - he has massive deadlines and no way to avoid Detroit. Hopefully all will calm down to a more reasonable schedule starting in July.
It's so gorgeous here now in every direction, it's hard to pinpoint any special place, so I'm closing with a pile of pictures taken all over last week. Yippee - enjoying every minute...
