Nobody does it better!

I caught Madi in a perfect visual description of how I have been feeling for the last month.
One picture is worth a 1000 words sometimes.
Madi says "Life just knocks you over sometimes Grandma, just take a nap and then play with me!"

I am off to Sandy Camp, my guild's version of a retreat!! I have been to many of these events and I feel that my guild, the San Diego Polymer Clay Guild, does a fantastic job of this.
This is our 11th event, Sandy Camp, and this year looks to be even better than the last, which was pretty damn good...
Warner Springs Ranch is where I will be, living the life of luxury (LOL, everything is relative) and playing with clay and doing all kinds of artsy craziness.
I will be having cocktails in the evening and hanging out with some incredibly awesome and friendly people and it is a jewel in my life.
The hot springs is wonderful and it feels like champagne bubbles on your skin!
The stars out at the ranch seem so close that you could grab them with your fingers. It is really amazing to see, but unbelievable in the dark of the moon!
I love you all, I will miss you, and I will be back soon, maybe the 5th, maybe the 6th.

Do not forget to enter the giveaway while I am gone, I have comment moderation on and I will not end the contest until I get back.
