Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans

Wait.....I was supposed to be making plans!? No one told me I was supposed to be making plans. No wonder I always feel like I'm treading water in a whirlpool....with a blindfold....during a thunderstorm!
As usual, it's been a busy time around "Nash-ville." But, in spite of my haphazard approach to life in general, I have been quite busy making some of this.....

And a little of this.....

With a few pieces like this.......



In addition to getting ready for a show featuring things like this......

I've also been busy with the usual stuff like some of this............



And cleaning up lots and lots of this..............


And, of course, dealing with mountains and mountains of this......

[With a little help from my friends.....that's our cat, Friendly. And, no, he is not. You've met him here.]

But in spite of all the crazy stuff life seems to throw our way, I have managed to find a little time for this........

[That's me and my main squeeze, and our his dog, Cooper. We're sitting on the porch of our garden shed earlier this year. Remember Cooper from this post about his Christmas Snuggie? Update coming soon. Film at 11.]

I am really smitten with the Easter-y stuff.
But that where my head is ...

You are so disciplined to make seasonal stuff out of season.I try and fail at that.
