Wow! October is almost over....

Good Day! Wow I can't believe that October is almost over and that Halloween is less than 5 days away. A lot has happened here in October. The sad event of Ted's dad passing began the month. The family got together though and lots of memories were shared. The following week my dad had chest pains and was taken to the emergency room - but thank goodness through tests it was determined he was okay. (Get that Cholesterol checked everyone and control it!) I did a craft show in Center Buskirk and met some very nice people. The next day I went to Proctor's Theater in Schenectady and Participated in the show - "Tony and Tina's wedding". This was an improve type of play/show that was very interesting. Still trying to figure out how much I liked it - or not...

Last week I attended the conference for artists - ART FEST 4 THE SOUL in Cromwell, Connecticut. It was organized by Ellen Purtill-Legare and Sallianne McClelland among many other helper souls. I took two classes on beaded art dolls from Annie Hesse. I had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I highly recommend these retreats to refresh your soul if at all possible. I'll post pictures of my dolls when I have them finished. (Promise.)

Today it's raining and gray. We are going to Saratoga to test drive (and perhaps buy) a Toyota, Prius. I've heard that these are great cars and since I commute an hour each way five days a week for work - I need all the gas savings I can find.

I will be trying to set up a website and start to be more active with my dolls and art. Life is short and we need to do the things that bring the most joy. Sappy but true.

Well, I had better end for today and get going on the day. Hope today finds you happy, healthy and doing what you enjoy most.

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
