Rarer postings

With Heather knee deep in  baby birthings, prenatal appointments and an online midwifery school, use of the computer can get rather rare. Add to that Liam's deep affection for the PBS kid shows we can get on our NETFLIX account, and the moments to use the computer become even rarer, but here I am at 7 am, blogging along, hoping for the chance to add a few photos to the blog this morning, so with that, I'll bid off.
By the way, I've got a grand total of 4 projects going on right now. The first series is "Ceol Na Mara," (Songs of the Ocean), second is "Máthair Grá", then "A Cuan Airithe" and finally .... I can't remember the name of it, but I'll get back to that later. And I'm writing again, so hopefully that will come along as well.

Back in Business

So, returning to the pages of Brendan's Isle after an extended absence, I am happy to report we are settling into the Northeastern-most corner of Tennessee quite nicely ... for a while anyway.

I have decided that this reason is obviously not the part of the South that gives said region a reputation for friendliness, as I have neighbors who don't even try to cover their disgust at my presence in their little hamlet of scenic mountain views. Needless to say I was raised in the region that gave the South that reputation so I do not flip them off. Not yet anyway.

Heather is busy with birthing. She is currently enrolled with Aviva Institute which is a midwifery college out west. Heather is not commuting, as she's taken a page from my college pursuits and is enrolled in online classes. She is also actively working with a local group of midwives and is out there meeting mamas and assisting in homebirths.

Liam is thrilled to have a new pool and seems to be becoming a bit more ... exuberant ... lately. He has also decided that Blues Clues is his favorite pasttime.

I am painting ... well, actually I am inking, but that just sounds weird, so maybe I will say I am arting and since I am taking the time out from spending the majority of my time laying down lines on paper to write our family blog, I guess I should probably restart Loime Studios blog as well, and speaking of Loime Studios, the official, everything on board, launch of the website is coming shortly as I just sent the webmaster photos of the artwork and their titles. Now begins the process of working out what to do with everything.

Now, to see if I can get some pictures back up ...
