Pencil Drawing on Vellum Paper of "Jeweled Lady #11" by Joana Miranda

Today is the last day of July 2010.  I have to say that all in all I’m not sorry to see this month passing.  Between a lot of road trips  and having both car and computer woes, I’m down-right exhausted!

Oh, and did I mention that Milwaukee had disastrous flooding this month, too?  It was a true case of “when it rains it pours”…about 7  inches worth of rain in 2 hours, to be exact!  While we were very fortunate to be spared any major water issues in our home, we did spent several long nights vigilant with the shop vac to make sure that the small trickles and  few puddles in our basement stayed just that!

Its hard to look ahead when you’re feeling like you’ll never catch up…even harder when you’ve had a month’s worth of 6 hours-per night of sleep.  So I’ll close with this thought (fast becoming a mantra of mine these days!)

Nothing befalls a man except what is in his nature to endure.

(Marcus Aurelius)
