This past weekend my parents came all the way from Houston to visit us. We were so excited to spend some quality time with them and I was also happy for them to finally meet our puppy, Hank. It was an extra special time because my Mom was celebrating her birthday. Christy and I had a plan for all the things we could do together and how we could make Mom’s Birthday special.
The funny thing about getting to spend time with family or really going on a vacation is how fast it all goes by. Whenever it is over I find myself always a little sad and wishing we could start the weekend all over again.
On Sunday we took Mom and Dad to see the new Salvador Dali exhibit in St Pete. One of Dali’s most famous depictions is of a melting clock. Apparently, as a surrealist, Dali was fascinated with the concept of time and what possibly happens outside of time.
As an ode to Dali, I did this drawing depicting our time together and some of the things we did. I also chose to do it in a surreal dreamlike way.
It was great seeing you both Mom and Dad.

I have never really used an energy pill or drink before. In fact, I don’t even use coffee in the morning to keep me awake. Right now I might be second guessing that decision. This has been a long and very busy week. I think I mentioned this before but I am truly blessed to have so much work. At the same time, it really can take it out of you. Thank God I am taking a long weekend. Did I mention my parents will be in town. We are so excited to see them.

Once again, I have been slacking when it comes to my drawings. I guess it is a blessing that I have been so busy with work and that is why I have been a little behind on my drawings. Sometimes, I see our comfy couch and so badly want to just stop working and lie down. Doesn’t it always seem like there is so much to do?
One a side note, this is a drawing of the corner of our couch with our pillow. It is pretty much a general consensus that our couch is one of the most comfortable couches out there. If being the most comfortable couch were an Olympic sport I am pretty sure our couch would win Gold. You better watch out Mr. Phelps
