Taking a Break

I haven’t posted anything on my blog in ages, because I never could seem to get in the habit of doing so.  Several folks have asked about new Zentangle(r) classes.  Because I have a lot of things going on in my life this year, I’m taking a break from teaching ZT classes for the foreseeable future.  I may teach again at some point, but I just don’t have the energy right now.

If you are interested in taking a class, I would refer you to my friend Susan Williams, who is in High Point.  Message me for her contact information.




If you are on the Crystal Coast in NC and bring your dog, we have found three places you can take them with you when it’s meal time in Atlantic Beach:

1.     Frost Seafood House – they don’t really have outdoor seating, per se, but there are two picnic tables out front, and they allowed us to buy takeout and eat it there with Maggie.  The waitress actually did a smidge of table service, although they really don’t officially offer that outdoors.  

2.     Molly’s at the Doubletree Hotel.  They have their own pier, and most of their seating is outdoors.  Be prepared to wait an eternity for your food, but when it gets there, it’ll be worth it…at least, if you order the fish tacos it will.  Best damn fish tacos I’ve ever had.

3.  The Crab’s Claw.  Really good flounder sandwiches,  excellent tartar sauce, and clam chowder PACKED with clams.  Don’t get the conch fritters.  You’ve been warned.  Service was slow, but we were talking to other customers (our dog is a chick magnet ;) !)

Maggie’s first ever trip to the beach. She is not impressed with the ocean, and she is completely pooped.

A couple of weeks ago, we took a trip out to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. This is the view out the window of the jet that took us there…

An EXCELLENT new article!!!

Check out this excellent new article about Zentangle in Philadelphia!

Time to Sing!

Over the summer, one of the zillion things I did was to join the Golden Triad Chorus.  GTC is the local chapter of Sweet Adelines International, an organization for lovers of Barbershop-style music for women.  This is one amazing group of women, and rehearsals are so much fun you’d not believe it.

Our annual concert is to be held at Kernersville Middle School on October 20 at 3:00 p.m.  I have tickets available, so if you’re interested, message me and I’ll hook you up.  They’re $15 each in advance, $17 at the door, Senior and group discounts are available.
