The family has departed, and my life has returned to normal. Even Malcolm
is back from Australia, though he's walking around like a zombie, thoroughly
jet lagged, sleeping during the day and awake most of the night.
Malcolm and Zoe visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
This morning when my walking partner Nancy Hudgins and
I arrived at our turn around point at the dock at Winter Harbor, Malcolm
was there. I think he was checking to see that we really were completing
our daily three-mile walk. He took this photograph to prove the fact
to you all.
Sunrise Walk: Pat with friend Nancy Hudgins.
I'm delighted with our latest tote bag and our Christmas
stocking. I hope you agree that they've turned out well.
Pat displays some of her available gift items.
I'm bound for Panama on Thursday, and I'm excited by the
prospect of six weeks of concentrated painting. Next week I'll be writing
to you from my island studio.
Take care. Like Nancy and me, protect yourselves from these mosquitoes
by wearing white and long sleeves!
