I am finally getting back to painting again and it feels great. I really do have a tough time functioning without my art. It is like a limb is missing or something. I am still on my Zorn palette kick. I never seem to tire of all the wonderful color combinations I can get from just four colors! Black, White, Yellow and Red. It is amazing. Oh and I have added gold for a little pizazz.

I think I mentioned to you that I have been taking a Tai Chi class twice a week. It is really helping me with flexibility and concentration. Today I was even able to get down on the floor. Something I have not been able to do in quite some time. It was very exciting. I am still swimming 3 days a week but the Tai Chi is more for strength, relaxation, and balance. I just love it and plan to continue when I move out to Arizona.

We are inching ever closer to our move. The painter is coming next week to paint the kitchen and do some repairs.

My husband is back from his two weeks in Arizona. He had very cold weather when he was there. Unlike me and the nearly perfect weather I had for my entire month there.

Well soon we will both be there in the heat of June. There will be nothing cold about that! I am looking forward to taking some trips this summer to escape some of the heat.  One to San Francisco to see my aunt and another to Sedona to see Sedona! The place I take my Tai Chi class has some type of residence there which I am looking forward to visiting.

Well, have a great week!

If you feel at all like driving another 250 miles north on your trip to SF, you can come visit me! Of course, there's nothing else to do here to speak of, but Humboldt County is mighty beautiful without the usual attractions. And this area has been rated at the top of the list of the very best art towns in the country...although you've already found your eden. Just sayin' ;);)
Have a great spring. June will be here before you know it!

Nice to see you are getting results from your fitness activities. I know that getting down on the floor at our age is not easy. Baby steps and you are making progress on all fronts. xoxo

There's a saying 'round these parts, "God created the Grand Canyon but he lives in Sedona." It's amazingly beautiful but unfortunately quite crowded now. You can still get out and hike and not see too many people but anywhere in town kinda sucks.
