Taking a Hop, Skip and a Jump

While I tried to get the Mr. to take a trip to somewhere this summer, the only idea he liked was to stay local.  Forget Greece, Las Vegas, Bahamas, or Florida.  A short road trip it is, with no housework in sight!

We'll be visiting the east end of Long Island, on the North fork, in farm and winery country.  While I don't know if we'll be going to any wine tastings, I am hoping the weather is hot and humid, perfect for sitting on the beach. Weather is not something you can predict with any measure of accuracy and any outside activity depends on the weather.  Being a person who likes the heat, the weather better cooperate.  Earlier it was cloudy, rainy, but hot and humid. Now the sun is showing up.  It better!

Last week the humidity lifted and we were left with temperatures in the low 80's and high 70's.  That's cold to me!  That's get out the woolies weather!  I never complain when the temps go up into the high 90's!  Nope, not me!  I am in hog heaven when it's hot, hot, hot!  I know what New York winters are like and I never complain about a sweltering New York summer.  Yup.

So I will probably..scratch that, definitely be AWOL from the blog.  I don't have a Blackberry, or a netbook, or an iPad.  You'll all have to carry on without me.  Rest assured that pics of my days will be forthcoming.  I plan to bring along my travel watercolor set and my ink pen with a drawing pad.  Morning pages will be coming along too, which I will have to sneak because the Mr. always wants to know what I'm writing about.  Will I get to do some art while I'm sitting in a beach chair all day long?  We shall see, won't we.


  1. I saw your name on the list of names for interviews for Artists that Blog. Love your work and your blog. What a great title too. I was so surprised to find another Long Island artist listed...I don't know why, but I was. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

  2. Thanks for the compliments and the comments, Ginny!
