All's well that ends well I suppose

'The Remains of the Day'

Well, nothing has really been resolved as far as my daughter goes, she's officially moved out which is fine since she's 18 - I'm just sad that she left under the circumstances she left under. She has a lot of growing up to do. I guess everybody learns the hard way don't they? I don't think I really learned until I turned 30 - a lot of things became clear to me that year. But it's ok. Richard and I have the house to ourselves now except on weekends which is probably good since we're going to be getting married. It gives us time without kids which is something we've never had between my three and his one (they're 16,17,18, and 20 lol). This is the beginning of our alone time together. Our house is in order anyway, the septic tank issues are resolved for the moment, we've filled in the giant hole in our backyard. Now we just have to get ready for the appraiser tomorrow, we've been trying to get our house refinanced through all of this.

Wow, I would be completely remiss is I didn't comment on gas prices right now. I understand the situation as far as the hurricanes etc, but DAMN. Gas is $5.09 here when you can find it - about 60% of the gas stations are COMPLETELY OUT OF GAS. Absolutely ridiculous and borderline scary. What are gas prices where everybody else is right now? I bet CA is even higher.

I'm posting some new artwork, I haven't done that in awhile. I'm really going to try to start keeping back up with my blog :). I'm SO in love with these two photos as a set, I can't wait to hang them together on my wall. This is my new favorite color combination, the light blue green with red. I can't wait for fall!

Our Hawaii/Oahu gas prices range from a low of $4.16 to a "high" of $4.59. I guess we still have it "good"...whatever that means. I think I'm going to take up biking again soon. Love the new photos and so excited about your wholesale venture. Wishing you all the best!

Well I'm glad your house is getting put back together. Good luck with the refinance.

Gas here, in Wyoming, has been lower lately. $3.69 the other day, although the high was only around $4.30 something. That's so scary that you are having a hard time even finding gas.

I LOVE the new photos. I'm digging the blue/aqua and red lately, too. I don't think I ever thought about that color combo until I saw it in a million Etsy treasuries. But now it ranks among my faves.

The gas prices were right at about $3.50, then Hurricane Ike came into Texas and overnight (literally) the prices went to $5 and up. People panicked and there were cars lined up at the gas stations all the way out to the roads which led to gas stations running out of gas. Maybe the hurricanes are only affecting the south/southeastern states as far as gas goes? I hope so.

I think I discovered the aqua/red through Etsy treasuries too LOL. I think it just catches my eye now - especially with jewelry :)*sigh* it's so pretty :). There's so much awesomeness on Etsy :).

Holy cow! 5.09!! Living in NYC we don't always know the crisis 1st hand but as we took a road trip up to the mountains, I can at least tell you the price :) It's anywhere around $3.87 for premium. But you can get it readily.. Scary otherwise!

You are a faster learner than I am. I didn't see things clearly until I was in my 50's. Just discovered your blog & your work. How beautiful!
