Days 62 & 63

I have written about these days already, so am just posting the artwork. Really don’t like J’s version of my half-shadow selfie at MHNI so I’m including only the Instagram version.

Days 56 – 58: The More They Stay The Same

Monday brought more headache, frustration and car trouble… at least I was able to get Zo to her first Daisy Scout meeting, and my dad came to the rescue with jumper cables and it was all very easy, though I was breathless with anxiety about my former boss’s hybrid SUV being parked quite nearby in…
