Martha, my number two daughter, has a birthday today. She has wanted a floor lamp for a long time, and today she decided was the day to check into the lamp supply in town. She came back with a lovely lamp. The shade is crystal  and is signed by the artist who created it. She was very happy with her choice.

Later, the three of us went to a fabulous restaurant perched on a cliff above the ocean. The view was breathtaking. Apparently the waves were of poor quality for e saw no surfers there. The menu in the restaurant was not of poor quality. The food was superb. Hope to go back there some day soon.

Tony Lance who lives Saint Croy is coming for a visit next week. She was about ten years old when we moved to Laguna Beach. She lived next door to us. I used to give her art lessons and before we moved away I gave her my Water colors. She has since become a well known, successful water colorist in the Virgin Islands. 

The following week Anna and Steve are supposed to drive here from Bainbridge Island. Looking forward to that too. And to make that weekend even more fun, Jane might come from Mill Valley while the Neffs are here. Three daughters all together is always fun.

A lot of commenters are saying 'please write more about your memories from your childhood'. I am so busy absorbing all the new experiences I am having. Just heard that it will cost me $150 to restore my old Viking sewing machine. It got all shook up during the move. I am torn. will I be able to use it. My eyes are quickly deteriorating. But I have a couple of projects to do.

I enjoy the new news as much as I enjoy your memories.It is all good to me. That restaurant sounds fabulous. Have you ever been to Big Sur, there is a restaurant called
" Nepenthe" with also an amazing view. A big hang out in the early 70 's artist crowd. I love it up North. Keep the Viking, those were good machines !

I found your blog this week and have been reading from the beginning (currently as far as May 2010). I thought I'd Google to see if any of your artwork appeared and found this auction that was held on 10 March - did you know of it?

I am enjoying your blog and have sent the URL to my 80-year old mother who I think will like it too.
