My wife and daughter headed back to california at the end of June to visit with family and friends. Oh boy, how I miss them. I will be flying out to california on the 17th for a weekend and then we all come back together. Wow, the 17th, that seems so far away. I’ve been talking to them daily and everytime I hear Chamila’s voice it sounds so much different and older than the time before. I also miss Giselle’s good cooking. Though she wouldn’t admit it, she gets pretty crafty in the kitchen. Here is a sample of what I have been fixing up to eat. Even my food misses the girls.
I did get to eat some really good Texas BBQ this past weekend, with my brother Bryan and his family, at Black’s in Lockhart which is about 30 minutes from Austin. Afterwards we went to a nearby park to skate and let my nieces run around.
Here are a few photos of the girls the morning they left.
Multi-tasker this one.
Amazing, isn’t she folks?
To try to keep my mind off me ladies I have been keeping busy by working on fun stuff. Here is some of that fun stuff.
I was commissioned to redo the JUAN Lennon piece. I’m much happier with these results. Here’s a detail of the lettering. My favorite part about working with paint so much lately is how steady my hand is becoming. It’s tons better than it used to be.
