things have been very depressing lately. I'm sad to say my grandfather passed away on Friday July 11th. it is rare that all of my family can get time off to be in the same place as once (we were only missing 2 people) i have 3 pairs of aunts and uncles and they all have 4 children. (that's 13 cousins for those of you still counting) it was super good to see everyone but bitter sweet because of the reason we where all wearing black and at a church. and now that they are all gone (they all live in different states scattered around the U.S.) it is very lonely and quite. I'm sorry i haven't been posting anything. i have been working on other things. trying to keep busy to keep my mind off of ... other things. I've been doing more crafty things that art lately. i need to take pictures so i can start posting here to see if anyone would buy what I'm making. any way i hope you all had a great 4th of July! have a great summer!!
