The week from hell has commenced. Mammogram appointment Tues was actually supposed to happen Monday....@#$%$#@ but they took me anyway. Note to self make mammogram appointmtnts for AM as by 2:00 PM they have lost all their joix de vie. How sad....no appointments for Paps available until the New Year...I'll try and cope. Phone call this am....CANCELLATION...yeah me!!! Friday is the day #@$%$#@. Just hope the dear man with whom I cohabit remembers I don't assume THIS position without dinner and a movie. I am really cranky @##@%$.

Why is my suitcase out in the middle of the room? Am I going some where? Why is there a bank statement everywhere I am? Why is my son-in-law leaving town for 2 months just when I am about to arrive for a 6 wk. visit? Something I said, did...????

Today, I completed the Austrian crystal necklace, earrings, and bracelet a neighbour asked me to fix a month ago. The crystal necklace, belonging to her grandmother, (my neighbour is 86 years old), had been strung on cotton and had broken. No wonder!; the size 20 mm bi cones numbered 24 with smaller 4mm bi cones separating them. I cannot imagine her being able to walk when wearing this piece. She is under 4" 10". I made the necklace smaller, added earrings and a bracelet using some of the most beautiful clear Austrian crystal I have ever bought.The finished project,counting the one of a kind crystals, clasp and memories....priceless.

YES! YES! YES! I am done with this painting. Of course, I have yet to ask for feedback and have to scan and touch up and lift but in all essence of this project. It is done. High fives all around...on second thought.....

Ott light is on my left, palatte on my right, fresh water in my dispenser, towel over my right knee, fresh block in front of me and Jon my Bon Bon is playing encouragingly to me " when you breath I'll be the air for you." So I load my clean brush and...and.... and....CRAP!!! it used to be soooo easy.

10 days of nonstop beading, talking, eating, beading. My eyes are red my fingertips cracked and bleeding but we have amassed such a pile of pretty, shiney, beaded adornment that it just took our combined breaths away....and thats A LOT OF AIR to set loose on the Okanagan. We took pictures of all of it, a 5 hour endeavor and had to sit down again with high fives all around and congradulatory glasses of wine, gasping at our creative genius. The proof will be in the sale of our jewel children in December in Edmonton. Rita the willing jewelery slave boarded her plane....thank goodness for the metal detectors discovering our favorite pieces cleverly hidden under her layered clothing; and flew back to snowy Edmonton.
