Regardless of the situation, no matter how hopeless the outcome may be, I will never quit, and I will never back down. I have become the wolf.

It’s a “Super Monday”


4:30 Monday afternoon.  Spent the most wonderful morning and afternoon snuggled with Oscar in my big red chair.  The snow is drifting down in handfuls.  I’ll bed we’ve gotten over three inches today alone.  I love watching the birds play “battledome” at the feeders.  All of them vying for the choicest piece of birdseed, then racing back to the shrubs where they can eat in somewhat warmth.  There must be 100 birds that live in the shrubs outside my side door.  When I open the door to let Oscar out, it’s like a peeps chorus line greeting me every time.

I got my granddaughters’ 2012 piece of bearthday jewelry today.  It’s a silver cat face outline with a four-leaf clover inset in glass where the face goes.  Perfect for year 3.  In case I’ve forgotten to fill you all in, every year on her bearthday, I buy her a piece of jewelry and put it in a box.  On her eighteenth bearthday, she will get this gift of seventeen years of thoughts and finding the perfect piece of jewelry for.  I try to include Peridot or a shade of green to represent Peridot in all her gifts.

“Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. Only spiritual or clear-minded persons should use Peridot. The person with too many earthly problems will not be able to understand the beauty of the Peridot. The very spiritual can wear Peridot in a necklace with the stone at the base of the throat to feel its soothing effect. Used in a necklace, Peridot is a protector against negative emotions.”

Since she is also a Leo (like her grandma B), cats or their other worldly likenesses will also be used for her bearthday pieces.

I’m missing my grands something bad.  I haven’t seen them or heard from them since Christmas.  I asked a few weeks ago if I could come down for a few days and haven’t heard anything back, so I’m guessing that’s a no.  It’s so hard when you love them so much, but get to see them so little.  I know it’s because they are so busy and the kids are so active in their lives.  I’m glad they get to do so much with her parents and siblings since we never seem to be able to get together.  It’s good that they get to be really close to a part of their family.  Family is what it’s all about.

I think I’ll go take a hot bath since it’s still daylight.  Nothing better than a hot tub while watching snowflakes fall.

I’ve decided that I want a chihuahua.  A little girl Chi, not a really little one, but a long-haired, medium-sized one.  Tri-colored would be perfect.  If anyone has a hook-up, let me know.

Oscar and I cancelled our appointment today.  We did reschedule it for Wednesday.  The roads were just too scary for me.  Snow covered and icy.  Not what I want to drive on.  She understood and so we are doing it again on Wed.

I’m getting seriously short of fresh postcards for my color wall.  If any of you happen to spot a brightly colored postcard somewhere on your travels, please send it on.  I have several “color boards” that I pin postcards, and cards and photo’s to give me inspiration for making beads and jewelry.

Dinner is on, so I’m headed up.  Have a soft evening all.  See you tomorrow.

 

My a-ha moment for the day.


I finally figured it out.  The light clicked on.  The A-ha moment when I figured out how to change colors of thread while working on a project without having the color change look like shit.  I’ve read the directions and seen it done and had it shown to me and just couldn’t do it.  This morning I tried it on a baby blanket I’m crocheting and it worked.  Now I just hope I retain that knowledge.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here.  The tree is up, most of the gifts wrapped.  The tree looks delish this year.  I went with all purple and silver and it turned out really nice.  My orchids are almost all in bloom and they make the kitchen look so spring like. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So as I look out of my kitchen window and look at the snow-covered black hole in the back yard, these lovelies draw my eye and I am captivated by the colors and the beauty of them all over again.  Given a choice, I would opt to never get cut flowers again.  I’d rather have a live Orchid that will bloom over and over.

I’ve been especially busy cleaning out rooms while I have the energy to do them.  I’ve gotten all of my side of the basement done.  Now I need to keep working on bring the stuff down from upstairs.  I figure if I do a little bit each day, that room can be ready to paint within the week.  Not that I’m going to paint it within a week, mind you.  But it will be ready for me when I am.

Oh, and I got a lovely surprise in the mail.  Some yummy glass from a friend.  I’m not sure what it is, but I can’t wait to try it.

I’m off to give the bedroom a good going over and to finish the laundry.  I just love Mondays.  Always too much that didn’t get done over the weekend.  Have a wonderful afternoon all.  Don’t work as hard as I intend to.
