Time marches on.....

It has been some time since my last post -- but had to share this photo with you.

Look what came to brighten my days.

This beautiful male cardinal comes each day to check the grape vine in hopes the grapes are  ready for his dinner.  He is so beautiful -- and it boosts the spirits just to see him.

A Quick Post.....

Life has been taking the bumpy road lately, but to help level things, I did get in a bit of beading today.
I am amazed at how soothing even the simplest of beading is.These are four little prayer / meditation beaded pieces I did this afternoon. If you don't have these books, you might be interested in requesting them from your library: Bead one, Pray Too by Kimberly Winston. or A String and a Prayer by Eleanor Wiley.

Thank you all for your emails and caring thoughts. Please keep my DH in your thoughts and prayers --- I would really appreciate it. I will post more when I know more for sure. In the meantime, thanks again. You are all very special.

Be Back Soon.......

I just recently had minor surgery -- and though it was minor, I will be mostly out of commission for the rest of this week.  I'm looking forward to beading lots more in the very near future. See you soon.
