What's New? Oh, Not Much....


So, what's goin' on?

As I thought about last week my initial reaction was "ho-hum," pretty quiet and tame.  Then I looked back at my calendar for the week and saw all the little "dots"


On Monday, June 3rd, I had the immense pleasure of visiting with a friend for 1.5 hrs. at a Starbucks!  The initial purpose was to deliver this necklace....


However, much to our amazement the minutes just ticked away as we had so much to share and enjoy with each other.

Tuesday marked the beginning of my new session of Adaptive Arthritis Aquatics (say that 3x fast!!)


It's such a blessing for my hip ~ amazing what 93 degree water can do for you!

Wednesday did not begin on a good note ~ I woke up that morning to NO CABLE NO INTERNET!
Arrrrrgh!  I love how connected we are, but dread a break down of any kind that disconnects us from the world!  Cox set an appt. for Thursday and with Ron away on biz, I could survive w/o TV!

I knew the good Lord was saying, "Karen, you have better things to do with the gifts I've given to you!"

That afternoon, I was able to spend time with my sweet friend Sandy and deliver her necklace ~ one of my broken china pendants...

Sandy's is the center necklace
Thursday was lovely.  Cox showed up on time in the morning, the problem was with their intake box on the telephone pole, and we were back in the saddle in under an hour!

Fortunately, I had an appointment for hair color with my dear Tammy at 3:30 Thursday afternoon.  Ahhhh ~ relaxation!

I also began my First Session classes with Artful Gathering...
Here are some beginnings from my Crystal Drops class with Diane Cook.  They will become gorgeous necklaces, featuring chandelier crystals!



On Friday I put on my "Mommy" hat once again.  With grown daughters, who are amazing accomplished women, it's not often I get to really "mother" them.
Yet, oral surgery and the extraction of 4 wisdom teeth call for Mom, and our Kiki has been happy to have me by her side.

Happy to say that our patient is recuperating nicely and heading back to work tomorrow.  Of course the mother in me would rather she stay home a few more days, but as we all know, we can only push things so far!

I realized I haven't shared all my recent doings with you...which are available in my Etsy Shop, just click here or click the button on the blog's sidebar...

Happy Heart

Well kids, that's a wrap for last week.  This week will continue to provide much diversion, so I hope you'll join me again next Monday.

Enjoy your week ~ your days ~ hours and minutes....they do fly by...


You just may be surprised how rich is your life!
Blessings from my heart!

How nice you had time to spend with your friend at Starbucks! That is a gift isn't it? And nice that our grown kids still "NEED" us. It's funny how my son will call "Momma" when he's sick yet, his wife is capable of caring for his children when they are sick. When he's sick... Momma what do you think...
That does Momma's heart good.

Enjoy your crystal class with Diane Cook. She is such a dear. I took that class from her in Houston at ............... Darn I can't remember the name of that retreat but, I really enjoyed the class. Have a great weekend!

You are always busy Karen! Just like me : )
Your creativity is roaring. Your necklaces are gorgeous!
I am so glad the water therapy is working for you. That is good news.
