So, I've been a bad blogger, but, I've also been on some amazing adventures in the last month-and-a-half that have occupied a great deal of my time!

Exploring.  Hope to squeeze in a painting or two today. :)

My inlaws and my uncle and his girlfriend visited, followed by my dad, then we helped one of our good college friends move to SD to teach at our university, then we were in the boundary waters, then other friends from college came to visit, then we went back to Wisconsin for a week and a half where we visited family, attended birthday celebrations for adorable one-year-olds, recorded a spot for Wisconsin Public Radio, went to Door County, and then made the trek back to South Dakota just in time to start meetings at DSU.

I'm sure I'll write about these things in greater detail within the next few days, but for now, I thought I'd assure you that I had not vanished from the face of the planet.
