Long Time No Blog

I know it's been quite a while since I posted anything. Sorry.

I've been in a bit of a funk and not able to get much done. Mostly out of worry. One of my dearest friends has been in the hospital for the last 2 weeks with a very serious heath issue and the doctors are cautiously optimistic, saying that there is still a long hospital stay and even longer recovery ahead. I've been keeping on top of things by talking to the mother and/or clergyman nearly every day, but it just isn't the same as being there in person. Unfortunately, my friend lives many states away and hopping on a plane isn't really an option with 3 kids at home for summer vacation and a husband who we need to go to work every day. So, I've been feeling sorry for myself and worse for my friend. (Who, by the way, would be extremely irritated if they knew I'd even mentioned them, however obliquely.) I've come to the conclusion that it isn't helpful to dwell and I know my friend well enough to know that if he/she was aware of how I've been moping around feeling useless, I'd get a nice chewing out and a threat of a future butt-kicking unless I get my act together.

So, in the interest of avoiding future pain and verbal abuse (*grin*) once my friend is home and whole again, I'm gonna go make beads tonight. And again the next night. And the one after that. And I'll get back to blogging too. I've missed it terribly, but just haven't had much I could say.

Instead of saying any more, I'll just show the other 2 pots I painted for my mom's party. My favorite of the whole group is the one on the bottom, the pink one with the layered green dots - love it!

Hugs, prayers, and warm fuzzy thoughts. Much love and adoration coming your way. Isn't it just something with everyone these days. Not just boo-boos that we can kiss and make go away.
