We were blessed with glorious 80 degree weather the entire week (even though the weeks before were not nearly so pleasant). Heavenly....all those open air rooms, flowers in bloom, the beach, warmth, friends, and wonderful food. Following are a few shots from the trip:
Some kind of bread balls that were dropped into boiling oil and continually stirred by women standing over the hot, hot burner until the balls were all evenly puffed. Fascinating to watch their rhythm, but mostly all I could think of was how tired their arms and shoulders must be at the end of the day.
Now to the second part of the subject line....snow. We awoke to snow this a.m. with 2 or 3 more days predicted before returning to rain. Have to get out in the a.m. to bring Kolya and little granddaughter Gigi here for a couple days. Hope the snow doesn't intefere.
Finally got back into the studio this afternoon for a couple hours and decided how to put together a piece that has been "resting" for a while. Felt great after not doing much for the last month or so. Time to get back at it again.
