I've talked it over with hubby and have decided to rebuild my soldering studio...(relief!) He noted how much more versatile and happy I was with my work and assured me that I'm not exposed to many harsh chemicals with the pieces I make. It was a nice break and now I'm giddy about getting an area back up and running soon. Johnny also removed and added a new surface to my bench, which he built for me years ago.
I'm already daydreaming of more stone set rings, spinner rings...tee hee hee
The Art-A-Day (over at The Ladysmiths blog) project has been so helpful, especially on these sort of dark cold winter days...I've been water coloring a lot...but don't have pics yet...and the deep rich colors have certainly lifted my spirits. My friend Nay mentioned a book I'm interested in, it has to do with doodling and meditation.
The days are getting longer, February is almost here, which surely means we're a little closer to Spring? (A gal can dream)
My physical therapy went great on Friday, I came home with so much positive energy. I was able to do a lot more walking around and simple chores this weekend (and sit for hours painting)...and next week I'll go twice to get these stems a-movin' at PT, and ask about when I can hit the gym.
I miss my friend Jessie who moved to Oregon...we're planning a trip out to see family, and friends...
I miss Arizona, Tucson to be specific, and my sissy Roo hubby's sister) and her brood
I miss the warm sun...this was taken about 6 years ago at sunset in Tucson while visiting Roo...and brood...
anyway, the point of this post was to say
I'll be taking orders (again) for stacking rings, spinner rings, poppy rings, Unquiet rings, and so forth...because...I'll Be Back Baby!!!
