After my last post I got the house cleaned and the cooking done and people started arriving. First my entire family for a Sunday picnic and then a few days later My father in law and cousin Cate stayed for a few days. The day they left our good friend Swasti came for two days. Between the heat and the company I was wiped out when they left!
After that my dad let me know that my mom had been having some difficult days. She is struggling with a hard disease, Lewy Body Dimentia, which is a combination of Alzheimer's and Parkinsons all thrown into one but with a few twists of its own. I went to stay with them for a few days and help with her care and be supportive for my dad.
I'm back now, and although I really enjoyed all of the visiting and was glad I'm living close enough to be able to help my parents, I'm really glad to get back into my routines. I'm planning on spending a lot of time in the studio so you can expect some work-in-progress photos. For now I'll leave you with a photo of a couple of my dolls who are telling me to get in my studio and make stuff!
