2,220.86 miles, 36 hours driving, 9 days, and 3 major storms, we are home. It was wonderful to see family and catch up. I haven't been back to my childhood home since my dad died a year and a half ago. I even bumped into a childhood friend that I haven't seen in more than 20 years. We are all bigger, not just the kids.
And green. I had forgotten how green Iowa is in June. Not just any old green either. But a million zillion shades of luscious greens. Greens I would love to bottle up and decant when I need a little pick me up.
But it is nice to be home again.
It seems like six months since I've worked in the studio. Just what was I up to? I'm sure there is a list somewhere. I'm also sure that the list has not been thrown away as I see no evidence that the fairies have been in to clean up my studio. You just can not get reliable fairies these days.
