Wow what a month so far slow blogging

July is usually hectic and so far this year is no different!

We started out on July 2-4 with a huge celebration in our Downtown. My niece came and had lots of fun.

Airshow, record setting BBQ Bun, reading of Declaration of Independence, Palace grounds, fabulous fireworks, it was great!

Our friend Paul read the Declaration of Independence at the Academy. Afterwords we gave toasts then the fiddler played.

Our view from our porch for the airshow and fireworks was front row!

Last Friday we had a huge ArtWalk. It's usually the biggest of the year and this years was no exception.

I spent the first week of the month finishing paintings for the show. 

It was camp weekend too. Some of the parents were still here this morning shopping!

The Christmas committee of our Downtown Merchants Assn. has met twice so we're already making plans for the 2010 version of a Dickens of a Christmas.

And now I'm working on pieces for my next show, celebrating New Bern and my 20 years painting it. This show will open during the September ArtWalk which is the second Friday and MS Bike Tour weekend AND the Friday before our big 300th Anniversary Weekend.

Summer will be over before you know it and we'll be thinking about Christmas - woops, I guess we already are.
