Mid July Update!

Well July is almost over and I feel like it has been a whirlwind of a month. Vacation is not so much a vacation as it is a time to catch up and get ahead. I have really been trying to get on here and post some project overviews but I have been bogged down with a million things. Let me explain.

In case you missed it....
We are expecting our first in the middle of January. Today marks what could possibly be my 3rd day in a row without morning sickness. It has been a long and trying first trimester. I am 15 weeks and 2 days today. We have our 16 week appointment next Monday to see Baby G again. So on top of all that excitement we are working on our baby registry and feeling completely overwhelmed by all the options out there.  I am also cleaning out a room/closet a day to prepare for a yard sale this weekend. Nesting anyone? 

If you follow me on Instagram  you may have seen my wet art shows I did earlier this month. I did two day shows at  Varick Winery and the Skaneateles Antiques and Art Show and the rain joined us.  
It was pretty cold sitting in my tent. It got so bad the coordinator at the winery that the coordinator said we could pack up two hours early.
Everything was wet. My tablecloths were soaked. Fortunately my work is waterproof.
While it didn't rain at Skaneateles, it poured the day before the show began. I had the luck of being next to a tree, which provided additional shade but didn't help my booth dry out. I resorted to breaking down boxes to make a cardboard rug. 
After all of that, my husband and I ventured to Taughannock Falls for an anniversary hike and dinner.
I found my vegetables in my garden after some intense weeding. I grow more weeds than veggies. I view this approach to gardening as organic gardening. 
I multitasked and spent some time in the studio and attended 6 hours of the Art of Ed Summer Online Conference last Thursday. Lots of amazing presentations and information. Perfect timing for back to school plans. 
Yesterday I finished up my first of three online classes I am taking from Learner's Edge. The course work is at your own pace and pretty rigorous. If you are looking for some PD on your time, check out Learner's Edge. The prices are very reasonable and they have quite a selection of courses! 
Up Next...I am teaching my second paint and sip night!! 

So there you have it. My first 3.5 weeks of summer vacation. Whew. I'm tired just recapping it.
