Cup Overflowing

Wow! Just when I think life will be a little calmer, my days fill up more. I have been a little remiss in my blogging because everyone else's agenda overtakes my own. That's okay. I guess that's why I'm help where I'm needed.
Last weekend I had a wedding and a funeral. The wedding was at my house. My nephew was the groom. The funeral was a good friend's mother. On Saturday morning, I sat though about an hour and a half funeral that was almost totally in Spanish. It was very interesting. Then I came home and helped finish preparing for the wedding which was at 4:00. All went well despite some much needed rain. (Pictures to follow when I receive the photo disc from my brother-in-law.)

Then on Monday I had to accompany my mother to the hospital for her knee replacement surgery. I have been at the hospital every day this week. I took art supplies with me, thinking I would have a lot of down time to create but that didn't happen.

I did get to do a little art the week before and didn't get to post it because my battery in my camera died. This is my graffiti inspired mixed media collage on Tyvek. I did a series of graffiti about love.

Also, I did a digital collage on healing.

It's off to the hospital for me to check on Mom.

Terrific collage - the colour, the layers of image and word, all calling out to be examined closer.
I hope you get a little more 'you' time soon.

I don't know about "me time" any time soon. My older son accidentally severed a couple of tendons in his fingers on Saturday and will have surgery on Tuesday. I may go be with him and his wife for that. Also I have to go check on my mother every day and take her to doctor appointments.
Some day....
