Liquin no more

So I guess I've broken my Liquin habit. I liked the non-Liquin look so much, I'm sticking with it. It'll be interesting to see if anyone notices that the last 40 mini's look different.

Great show at Possum Point Theatre tonight - Guys and Dolls. Lots of energy, great cast, great acting and singing, beautiful costumes, etc. etc. etc. Awesome job everyone!

Looks like a busy weekend and a warm one to boot. The 1/2 marathon is on Sunday, and I think it's (strangely) forecast to be in the 80's! What a day for hot weather. But, I just can't complain, I've been waiting for it.

New website

Check out my new website - (some sections still under construction) at Thanks to Damon Pla (artist extraordinaire) for his hard work.

The sun has finally come out and the wind has died down. Amazing. This is our last day here, unfortunately, but we'll take advantage of the weather. We may have to bundle up for the beach, but dammit, we're going. We'll also be taking the ferry over to Okacroke, a very cool little island off of Hatteras.

Two more mini's to go this week. It's been a productive painting week.

Well, this certainly isn't Spring Break weather. NC is cold and rainy for the most part. We had one day of sun so far, and Haley and Colleen wouldn't put sunscreen on, so Haley's face got so red, it swelled up. (some day she'll listen....won't she?) Since then, we've had mega-winds, rain, cold, warmth and fog. All we need is hail and snow and we'll have had the full range. It's very dreary currently. We're hoping for a decent day tomorrow.

I've gotten a few more mini's done while I'm here. I forgot to pack my Liquin (could have sworn I packed it) so the mini's look different. They're not as "smooth" but it's an interesting effect. I can't post any pics till I'm home though.

Having four kids in the house for a week means constant trips for the store. They sure can eat! Two more are arriving tomorrow, with a friend of mine. Should be crazy. Pray for sun!

I don't consider myself to be a very religious person. I do believe in God, am a confirmed Methodist, but at this point in my life am more of a spiritual person than a religious one. However, I saw this sign at a local appliance store, and thought it really hit the nail on the head.

God's will won't take you anywhere his grace won't protect you.

Knowing this brings me a great deal of comfort when things get rough and it feels like you can't take much more. He only gives us what we can handle.

Happy Easter, Passover, Spring Break

The kids and I are outta here for a week, starting tomorrow. We're headed south, hoping for some warmer weather (would 70 be too much to ask?) and some much needed relaxation. Hope everyone enjoys their holiday or at least the weekend!
