Ski Vacation

Well, sorry for the delay in posting but I was just too darn busy! Marc & family had a successful trip to Angel Fire. There was a bit of chaos in the mix for the entire time they were here but I think everyone had fun. We skied a bunch and my legs and bones are still old and tired!!!

But I did remember how to ski and it did remind me that I do live in a ski resort and I get free ski-ing with my annual resort membership which is not an optional thing and so the ski-ing shouldn't be optional either. It is a fun thing to do and it is okay to play hooky once in a while and go out and do a bunch of runs. As a matter of fact, from the time I left the house on Friday to the time I was getting off the chair lift was a total of 20 minutes. Not bad! That is driving over to the parking lot, getting on the shuttle bus, getting on the chair lift and riding it for at least 9 minutes. So why have I not done any ski-ing? Because I am stupid, I guess. And now it is 55 degrees and the snow is melting and I probably have enough paintings for my upcoming shows. But I'm not sure I can commit to hoping for more snow as I am really, REALLY enjoying the sunshine and spring- like weather. But we'll need more precipitation pretty soon or we'll really be in for some sort of fire season. (PS The picture above is of Rory, my oldest nephew, and he did some nice art in my studio while he was visiting.)

Brady is nephew number 3 and is 3 and he likes to dance and do oil pastels at the same time.
Luke is nephew #2. He did a day and a night painting.
Here is part of the Cavan family--brother Marc, his wife Tricia and blue coat, Rory, and red coat, Luke. The ski-ing was awesome!

So, now that they have gone back to Chicago, I promise to get back in the swing! More soon.
