Long day's journey

Hi everyone,

I did this little drawing at my brother's kitchen table
today. Then we jumped in the car, visited my mother,
then got in the car again and drove home.

It's a five hour drive and we are super tired now.
It was a lovely visit in Ottawa, except that we are
worried because my mother is not well. I love my
family more than I can ever express, and I'm glad
we spent the Family Day holiday visiting my brother
and mother.

Now we plan to stay home for awhile. Two weekends
on the road is a lot. I'll talk to you again tomorrow.

Have a loving-your-family day.

Nice little line drawing. I can see an awesome painting in the future.

Five hours is a long time on the road. It's no wonder you're tired. Rest up. You deserve a rest after two week ends out and about.

Hi Karen,

I don't know if this one will turn into a painting, but it was a very pretty scene. I have been working long
hours today marking. Thank you so much about the award. I'll write about it on Friday -- until then I barely have time to think.

You are sweet to think of me, and I am deeply honoured.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Eldon,

I came home and prepared my notes for this morning. It was a lovely trip, but I am absolutely exhausted. I've been on the road 28 hours in the past week. That translates into seeing lots of beautiful countryside, happy times with Steven, and an overpowering urge to sleep for about a week. Not happening. Ah well.

Take care,

Barbara

This is a really beautiful line drawing Barbara.
I know how draining week end travel can be and I know full well what your family means to you! Your mother is a great force in your life. I hope she will be feeling better soon.
Take care
Love,
Marcia
