End of Summer, what?

Me, Painting, Travelcarla

I cannot believe it is the end of summer and here we are at LABOR DAY!  We have had the most beautiful season EVER!!!!  I cannot remember when we have had a summer that was this sunny and warm!  Forgive me for the lack of blog posts.  I have been trying to cram in every ray of sunshine into my body that I can!  The last few weeks have been full of road trips, running and trying to enjoy the little bit of summer that we have left.

Last weekend Dan and I headed to the Gorge Ampitheater in George, WA.  I fell in love with Eastern Washington all over again.  I forgot how beautiful it was.  The desert, the sun, the heat....ahhhhhh.  We went to see Jack Johnson and he put on a fabulous show! We even got a surprise performance by Eddie Vedder, so fun! It was Dan's first time to the amphitheater and he loved it!  Can't wait to find a show to see there next year.

I have been trying to get back into running.  It has been a slow progress and I am sad to say that my tendon is still giving me problems.  I am starting to wonder if I will have a chronic injury in that stupid leg of mine.  I have been running through the pain, trying to take it easy on the treadmill and do what I can.  My longest run lately has only been about 5 miles.  I am trying not to get discouraged and try to be grateful that I can run at all.

I have been working on two commissioned pieces that I will share with you next week. Check out this Crazy Ass Bird Lady for now.  She is who I want to be when I grow up.  You know.  The homeless lady sitting on the bench in Central Park.  Yep, that's right....that is gonna be me. Just be sure to flick a coin my way so I can buy some more bird food.

It has been raining this weekend, I am not quite sure I am ready for fall.   Check out my awesome new lounge pants that I bought from Other Bird, she makes the most awesome upcycled clothes!!!!  I call them my "curtains" and I LOVE them.  If you swing by the house, you are almost surely going to find me in these!!!
