View of the Delaware River from my apartment in Philadelphia.
The last couple of months have swept by in whirl! I'm now in Philadelphia, living out of a suitcase in a tiny apartment. This new adventure started when my husband received a promotion and transfer earlier this year, and it happened so fast we didn't have time to do more than pack a suitcase and whistle for the cat. As soon as I got here I had to immediately dedicate all of my time to finding a house and organizing a permanent move, so I haven't had time to paint or write or do anything. Things are starting to settle down a bit now. I'll be moving into my new house in nearby Kennett Square in a few weeks, and I've found a great realtor back in Louisiana to sell my house there. I'll be going back to Louisiana later this month to finish up a few more moving details, and then back again in July to teach a watercolor workshop in Baton Rouge for the Louisiana Art & Artists Guild.
Philadelphia has been a big change from New Orleans, and I miss food, culture, and arts already. They have a pretty good sandwich here; they call it a cheesesteak. But it doesn't hold a candle to a catfish po'boy.
