Good morning from a somewhat surprisingly chilly Sierra Vista, Arizona. Yesterday was Christmas day and I spent it here in Arizona with my daughter Alexandria and her family. It was a lovely day with great company and good food - just what Christmas should be - in my mind. Zachary and Chad were happy with the gifts that they received as was everyone. The day was bright and sunny and we all just relaxed. Telephone calls to family members were made and received and all was well.
Mike is in NYC filling in on the show Awesome 80's Prom today. Hopefully all goes well - it usually does and I think he enjoys the City in small doses.
Not much happening on the crafting front but I am feeling the bug so I'm sure I will get back to dolls soon. I've only made two teddy bears and a few jewlery items this year and am feeling rather stiff - kind of like how I feel when I've sat too long without moving. Need to flex my creative muscles. (Use it or lose it as my mother said.)
Today is December 26 or the day that I have come to know as tweener day. Ted's birthday was December 27 and so the day between the 25 and 27 is - tweener day. I'm still keeping tweener day and this first one without Ted is for him - Happy Tweener-day!
My next project I think will be to try and sculpt some small baby figures. I find them very intriguing and they will probably keep my interest for a while. I'll post some pictures when I get started. (Which will hopefully be as soon as I get home - unless I find myself in a store that sells clay in the next couple of days.) I am here until January 3rd and then I fly back home. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I don't get stuck anywhere along the way back. Coming down I thought that Salt Lake City was going to be an unscheduled break in my trip. Snow storms and air travel do not mix well.
Have a great day, and enjoy your holiday season!
- 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?
