Its about time....

I know,I know, I havent been here in so long or blogger either. I apologize. Life got in the way. Had some health issues that had me worried. I had a ugly mole on my leg that kept getting bigger and scaly,I had it for a really long time and finally got it looked at,they took a biopsy and a couple of weeks later I found out I had skin cancer,called spuamous cell carcinoma,which is really not caused by the sun,its from scar tissue and I did have a little lump removed from that spot awhile ago. And well I googled it and thought I was gonna die,I was convinced that it spread because they found another spot on my lip and had to take a biopsy of that too. I made myself sick over it.(Don't ever google a medical condition lol) After all of that worry,crying,sickness and some stitches later I'm happy to report that they got it all in my leg and that my lip was not anything! On a another sad note, we lost a very special part of our family, our dog Foxy,Which I'm sure all you dog and cat lovers out there know how hard it is. She had a tumor in her stomach that just kept growing,the vet said she only had a month to live which was back in october but we were blessed with a few extra months with her,she was only about eight years old, we always said she found us,she was a stray that just came up to my daughter while we were visiting my inlaws,she really wanted to keep it but I told her we needed to find her real home,so after we ask everybody in the surrounding neighborhood if they knew anything about her and a trip to the vet to find out if they knew anything,got her a clean bill of health my daughter got her way and we brought her home and she became a part of our family. So anyway thats why I havent been blogging,I guess you could say its been a rough start of the year but I'm thankful thats its spring and time for new beginnings.

Playing with Chalk(soft pastels)and a self portrait.

I'm here,sketching my everyday life somedays its just a cup of coffee other days its family members doing their ordinary daily things,somedays the sketch is beautiful and some days its terrible but I keep trying,keep going because life is here today and gone tomorrow. I try to capture my feeling inside my sketches so I remember the ordinary happy days,or scribble out those terrible days but they are there as I am here!
