Ippy and I gave a going away party last night for one of our dear friends who's moving to California. The party was at my house, so I spent the past several days getting house and garden ready. Everything went well. Our sweet friend R said he felt truly celebrated and I'm so glad. We'll miss him terribly, though. There's nothing for it but to make lots of trips to California to see him!
Tomorrow, I'm driving back to Charleston to finish up some sketches for the Old World/New World sketchbook. Be back on Friday.
In betwixt, I made a few quick sketches of life here on a quiet, beautiful, and cool Monday. The last is a sketch of my daughter C, whom I've sketched so often before.
I admit to feeling as though I'm running on low. I need recharging. I'm happy, but I'm depleted. Don' t know how or when it will happen, but I hope I have a space of a few days to do nothing but let the creative juices bubble and brew without feeling I have to produce.
