LOVED THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE
so why no promised posts on my blog?
For the most part my Internet connection was very sporadic and attempts to post blogs failed mid-stream. Additionally I was immersed totally in the area, the activities, and painting. I will share much more once I am no longer jet lagged and blogging now in the middle of the night.
so stressful I arrived a wreck with no luggage and a full day late due to missing my international flight. The upper midwest had thunderstorms and hail so no flights were coming in or going out of the Chicago Airport after I arrived there for my first plane change. Seven hours of sitting in that airport gave me more than adequate time for my online travel agency to cancel completely my flights and rebook them. (Thank goodness for travel insurance!) Once I arrived in Toulouse it took four days for my suitcase with painting supplies to arrive and five days for the suitcase with clothes to make it.
FINDING JOY ANYWAY
DreamaTollePerry and her husband are wonderfully positive people and immediately the group began to see the French countryside and I began to do a bit of watercolor journaling. This I could do since those supplies were provided for workshop participants. I found watercolor journaling to be fun and light hearted.
MUCH MORE SHARING AND BLOGGING TO COME
