Moving onward…

Ah, routine…I missed you.  I’ve never been one for a hard core routine, but I do enjoy my daily rituals.  I need them, really.  The past month has been a roller coaster physically and emotionally so waking up with the same coffee cup these past couple of days has been soothing. 

Stuff 1002

So many things are familiar and not at the same time which makes things seem sort of surreal.  People are three years older, there are new businesses, and refurbished buildings, new drinks at the gas station even!  Weirdness.  That’s the only word that comes to my mind.  I’m really amused at myself with the things I’ve been appreciating—like the tractor show down the street or the friendly stranger that asks, “taking the boss (Rocker) for a walk?” down on the river walk, driving my car, nice smelling dish soap, and being able to go to any internet site I want.  I took it all for granted and I never want to do that again—that’s a tall order, but you know what I mean.

On another note, I wanted to show you these neat new “Fresh” resin charms by Plaid.  We used them at the make and take at CHA and people loved them.  I had a couple in my pocket at the show and when I was cruising by the Kandi-Cane people’s booth I asked if they could stick a little crystal on one.  Voila–instant sparkle!  Looks really cute, I think, and boy is it stuck on there!  The silver “hope” charm is one I made awhile back using letter punch stamps on reticulated silver and liver of sulfur patina.  I hope you’re all having a great day!


  1. Love these! Nice pic, too.
