swimming and comics...

sorry i was not able to write yesterday and the day before as well. why? because cox sucks.  again. 
cox our service provider, shuts down whenever.........

the jr. olympics is over now and my daughter did pretty well, bettering her times by up to 10 seconds, which is cool, but still not placing in the finals as the competition here is very tough. there is one girl in her age group who went to olympic trials (the youngest swimmer, kendyl stewart).
 most exciting part and entertaining part of the meet is always their relay, again everyone on the relay team did their best times and they are all great swimmers, they got 8th place all three relay events.  
so i came home with a sore throat from screaming into the wind to "go, go, gooooooooooo..........".
yesterday we went to the comic con with her twin cousins max, and zach.  i think it might be a couple of days before i can write about that since it was so overwhelming, and crowded and new to me that i will need a couple of days to get it straightened out in my head.   the cool thing about comic con is the free stuff.  i will have plenty of fodder to play with for some time.today we are going to la jolla cove to swim.  tomorrow we will drive to los angeles,  then rosie and i will drive on to visit my son in santa barbara.  i will take my apple computer as i won't have to deal with cox service on the road.

Sorry about your Cox troubles! That does suck when you're relying on them to come through. I love reading about you supporting your daughter with her meet. She did quite well! I miss doing that with my son, who is now 30! That means I'm ...... well - let's say I wasn't a teen bride :) He used to play Lacrosse and Hockey and we followed him all over - much fun! Enjoy your visit to Santa Barbara AND I love your painting here; I remember it in the workshop! Awesome!

thank you marilyn....i sometimes wonder what i should write about - whether i should write about cheering on my child or other life happenings i do that's not art related. of course, in the end everything is somehow art related, to us artists who do work to express ourselves.

ah, yeah, this painting is the one in the workbook - its of my school friend's mother in law .....a real sweet person.

La Jolla cove is just beautiful. I like to swim there too! It is ironic because my daughter also swims om a swim team. Don't you just love all those fish that swim along with you!
