Well, I've been here in lovely Payson for almost a week now. I guess it's about time I do a little blogging.
I'm sitting in my sister's "Makin' Room" - that is what her grandchildren call her craft room. Cute, huh? My niece just got the internet set up down here so I can spend a little more time on-line.
It is absolutely beautiful up here in Rim country. I've been taking quite a few pictures - I'll probably have to wait until I get home to post any of them.
I even found a store that makes caramels as good as the ones I buy at the local pharmacy back in Princeton.
I miss everyone back home, but I am enjoying my family here as well.
My youngest son, PJ and his girlfriend are coming up to visit today. I think we will pack a picnic lunch and head for the river. My suitcase will be heavier coming home with all of the "special" rocks I find.

Next week I'm going to Arizona to spend a few weeks with my sister. She went home from the hospital today, but needs 24hr observation for a while. She sounds great, but still a little hazy. I'm planning on encouraging her to be creative while I'm there, and I plan to take advantage of her art supplies and do a little creating myself. I haven't heard from Peg - the winner of my bloggygiveaway pet portrait - so I think I'll draw another one - I need the incentive.
(I'll still honor the giveaway to Peg - if I hear from her in the next week) I'm also going to be looking for another job when I get back - I work for a temp agency and have been working steady for the last few months, but family is more important.
I'm going to miss my Mika - my daughter just got a new puppy and Mika is jealous, and she is not going to be happy that I leave her behind.

Bloggygiveaway Winner

Peggy from PegsPlay won the pet portrait from the random number generator. There were so many entries that I would love to have chosen, I'm glad there is such a thing as a random number generator. I think I may choose another one after I finish Peggy's portrait. Thanks to those of you who entered.
