Hello Friends and Family,
I can't believe it's been more than two weeks since I've written a weekly update. In the past two and a half years, I don't think I've ever gone this long and my reason for skipping last week was simply that I forgot - WOW - can you believe it? I am normally right on top of writing the weekly update; however, Cencorp has kept my mind quite busy.
I spent 8 days in McAllen. Over the weekend I went to South Padre Island and relaxed on the beach for the entire day. It was AWESOME. I read my book and did some oil pastel painting. I finished all four books of the Twilight series as well as started and finished a book by the same author "The Host". I recommend all of them. I began reading the "Lord of the Rings", which will take much longer to get through. My oil painting is progressing well, finishing four paintings in the last three days. Jimi wants to know what I plan to do with these paintings and I have no idea. I guess I will give them away. You can view them on our blog under Lorie's art or just click this link: http://dogbonegraphics.com/blog/?page_id=1357
Jimi has been working on his radio system for the boat. Getting it going and learning all the little ins and outs - it can be tough at times, but he's doing well and better to be messing around with it now rather than when we have a boat and are trying to learn 500 other things at the same time.
Matt and Jimi went to Moab for a few days while I was in Texas. Jimi was hoping to do some night time time-laps photography, but mother nature had other ideas. It rained and or was quite cloudy, so the boys four wheeled in the mud bringing home a really really dirty truck - ha ha.
There hasn't been any interest or even any showings on the house lately. We are prepared to be here through the winter and hope the house sells next spring. Though most of our things are packed up in the garage, it's quite cozy here and easy to keep clean with it being mostly empty. I may have to break out my scrap booking supplies though to work on and finish my 2010 album. I put it on hold thinking we would be in Florida by now.
Last Sunday was my father's birthday: 10-10-10 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD - WE LOVE YOU!!!
More travel coming up for me and possibly Jimi too. That's all for now.
Lorie & Jimi
