Good to be back home!!!

Well, I am finally back in Atlanta. So Good to be home. The studio is still standing and it even looks like we have had some rain while I was gone. It is nice to see that the garden is still hanging in there. 
Rob has  started a new job with General and can you believe he had to leave town for a work trip on Thursday morning? He will be back on Saturday, so it could be worse. At least that gives me a chance to pile through the laundry, the stacks of mail on the desk and unload the van.   I have been fiddling with the look of the blog. Let me know if you like the changes.
