We hit the ground running on Thursday when we landed later than scheduled. Picked up our car and headed for Dancing Firs, dropped our bags, hugged Mary and headed for the grocery store. Later, around a meal of wild salmon, asparagus and roasted baby potatoes with Mary's rosemary from the garden, we sipped on Chai du Grand Vaudasnière (my new favorite sparkling wine) and just heaved a giant sigh of relief.
Saturday was our Reading Circle day around the book: Portrait of an Artist on Georgia O'Keeffe, lunch and an art lesson with Lucan, a gentle, lovely artist who guided us through a two hour lesson using one of O'Keeffe's work as inspiration.

After the car ride, we had quick dinner at our friend Debbie and Mark's new condo and headed home to repack and hit the hay early for an early departure this morning.
My cup runneth over. I am inspired to:
1. read more biographies
2. knit with finer yarns
3. have another painting lesson
4. go back to W. R. in Febuary
5. work on my garden next spring
6. go out on more four-day artist's dates
I've unpacked, had a bath, put in some clothes to wash, had supper and with your permission, am now going to pass out!
