Across the Ocean we go...

a belated Happy 4th July to all our friends in the US...sorry if I haven't visited your Worlds recently!

I have been packing for our trip to the UK, we leave this afternoon...
Mum goes in on Saturday for her double hip OP...
the girls are excited about seeing their Mormor and Morfar, Aunt and Uncles and cousins...
there will be lots of berry picking and riding little Shetland Ponies, making camps in the woods and going for walks...

I,amongst cooking,cleaning and looking after Mum...will be working on illustrating a book a friend has written....my FIRST one...
the above painting is a snippet of what's to come...
I am excited about it...

I will miss Mr.R lots...and am hoping that my parents internet connection will enable me to blog and check mail.

check back tomorrow...I'll be sharing lots of English Countryside...it's been a couple of years since I was there in the Summer...SO different from Winter there...the days are extremely long and the flowers and fauna are beautiful and luscious.

I better catch my wings...cheerio!

touches
my whole self,
body & soul...
i would love
to travel
THIS way...
it shows
how it's
not always about
the destination,
but instead the
journey.
SO lovely
to visit here

travel
alongside you.
