Houses thru the ages and a lovely day
I did these little house/home drawings on the plane last weekend, thinking I would use them for one of the traveling journals, but when I got them home and finished they didn't work at all for what I was thinking. Different sizes, and all together not what was planned. But I like them, they're cute. I'd like to add Castle, and Victorian house, and other styles, so as I collect pictures of those, and draw, I'll add them to the collection.
Don't know what I'll do with it, but who really cares.
So..today was a big day. KJ was visiting Lolo and I decided to meet them down in Rhode Island. KJ decided it would be great if it was a surprise for Lolo, and told her that she had a delivery coming in the afternoon. I made it no problem the 50 miles to RI, but the last mile or so confused the hell out of me - probably because I had the wrong address! Finally I called KJ, turned out that I was literally across the street from lolo's house, KJ still pretending that I was a delivery person, I knocked on the door. Lolo answered, said sweetly "can I help you?" then shrieked MIM and the hugs began. We had a lovely afternoon, talking and eating and snuggling with Sweet Emma the wonder dog. I can't explain fully the feeling of meeting someone that you "know" in another way - it's just delightful. You're new to each other but start off with a history and while there is a ton to learn about each other, the common interest and other common friends adds such a note of depth. It was really a wonderful day, and I look forward to more with these two and certainly with others.
