Happy New Groundhog Year Day


That’s the latest holiday card I’ve ever received, but I give my daughter credit for getting something out, even in late January!

Since my last post was a Christmas memory, I too am running late, and for similar reasons–holidays, post-holiday catch-up, challenges with the grandparenting/parenting thing. Then on top of that, I spent most of January preparing for a solo gallery show of my art.

The parenting thing is going better. Coincidentally, I got her on health insurance and took her to a therapist on the same day, after five months of trying. She loves the guy and can’t wait for the next appointment. Bonus: he’s across the street from one of Austin’s iconic taco places, so Thursdays are now Torchy’s Taco night.

Update on the Saga of the Search for the Perfect Purse: the baby bag was getting a little bedraggled, plus it wasn’t quite perfect–a little too wide to set down in some places, like under the pew in church. I saw this on sale at Kohl’s (half the $90 price tag, which I would never have paid) and decided to try it. It’s TekGear, designed as workout bag (it even has a slot for a yoga mat). It’s tall rather than wide so it fits better, and it has the right pockets and straps, although I have yet to find a use for the yoga mat space. It’s a lot hipper to carry than a diaper bag, although that never stopped me. I did get asked in a book store to check my bag. I just stared the guy down and said “This is my purse.” Sometimes it’s not so bad being old. Nobody messes with you.

    Not sure if the image came through–it doesn’t on my phone, but on the computer there is a scan of the card (minus actual faces and names). https://wigginswordsandimages.wordpress.com/
