Leaving... Again...

Tomorrow morning, dark and early, I'll be heading off again. This time I'm headed down to Asheville and then to Florida to visit with my family. It seems impossible that I should be leaving again so soon. It seems like I just got here. In reality, I can't afford to leave, but I'm sure that I'll make it work out somehow. At the very least I'll be bringing my work with me and praying that there will be a source of fast WiFi where ever I go. A shop update is imminent. It's been awhile since I've seen my sisters and even longer since I've seen my parents. It'll be good to see everyone, including Max and Azalea. They are getting big so fast now. It seems like only yesterday that Azalea was in her bassinet and I was too afraid of picking her up.

Cynthia and I have planned some crafting days upon our return to Asheville. Perhaps we'll have a web sale of some of the things we make while we're crafting our brains out. It's my hope that Kathy can join us for at least one of them. It'd also be great to see J'aime and Melissa. Maybe even Cheryl-Anne and Gus if they're around. Or maybe Alisa and Meg (before they move to Denver)! It'd be fun to meet Ray from Lark Books as well. (Okay, so there are a lot of lovely people in Asheville I'd like to see!)

I'll also be scouting for the Capturing the Moment workshop in Asheville which is coming up quickly in October. It's filling up fast and I believe there's only two spots left! We are thinking about renting out a Victorian mansion downtown for the accommodations! Either that or a lodge in the mountains with a hot tub. I can't wait! Our Tucson experience was fantastic!

One of the pluses is that I'll be seeing some good friends. Some in Florida and hopefully some in Asheville. I'll be driving back with my friend Jenny who said she found some "back road shortcuts". The words "back road" conjures sounds of Dueling Banjos and the word "shortcuts" reminds me of nearly dying on a hike in Tucson or the time I led my friends in a giant loop of a wilderness park. Let us hope that the trip back contains neither death or scenes from Deliverance.

Thru Ga <=> Fla, try US 441. It's a pleasant alternative to the dreaded I-75 !!

Sounds like a great trip. Be careful, it's really hot down here in Florida right now.
