Heart Broken

Friday evening I got word that Evelyn had passed away.  Evelyn and I had been close friend for 38 years.  We would often go out to eat.  Before Mama died it was Evelyn and her aunt and myself and Mama.  Now, both Mama and Evelyn are gone.  I still can't believe she is really gone.  I keep expecting her to call and "Pay attention! "  Then she would either fill me in on something that was going on or ask me a question.  I miss her, but take comfort in knowing one day I will see her again.  In the meantime, she is filling Daddy and Mama in on how I am doing and walking with Jesus.
I have opened a new shop to try and reach more potential buyers! is the link.  Check it out!

O Rain Rain Where Are You?

It is  ridiculously hot and dry here.  It feels like my creative juices are just as dry.  I sit and stare at the beads and nothing sparks an idea.  The same goes for paper, it looks so blank.  I guess this is an artist version of "writer's block", though I don't call myself an artist.  Not sure what I would be called.  I love to dabble in different forms of art from writing to jewelry making.  I need to get busy on photo challenges for the month.  Great minis this month and have ideas.  I just haven't set them up to shoot.
I am off to see what I can do with a sketch I have done.  My first attempt at a lighthouse.  I am hoping that it will look better once I chalk it.  We will see or at least I will.  Not sure whether I will share it or not.

I get so tired of people who only think they know me feel like it gives them the right to give unwanted or solicited advice.  People do not understand how I feel about moving to town or into a nursing home.  First of all why would I want to go back to paying rent when I don't have to?  And why should I take up space in a nursing home when there are so many people who actually don't have a choice and need to be there.  And yes, I know my health isn't great but, not many people I know can say theirs is any better.  I have seen people go in there with their right mind and within a few weeks they barely know their own name.  For me it would not even be that long.  I know I would literally go crazy in one of those places.  I like being able to sleep when I want to and eat when and what I want to even if that means ice cream for supper ever once in awhile.  It isn't going to kill me.  I like being able to snuggle up with Pearl and watch TV or just sit and stare into space.  I like sitting outside when the weather is nice and listening to birds and other animal noises.
Bottom line is I am happy where I am at.  People don't have to agree with my choices, but they need to respect them.

Still feel cruddy.

Ok, so I see my favorite doc on Tuesday for a follow up.  Glad I already had an appointment because I had a super sore throat.  He gave me a round of Amoxil.  I am still popping them and while my throat is somewhat better, I am still sick and running fever.  Coughing and chest hurting, I suspect bronchitis.  Either way, I feel really rough.  I have already called and let Matt know I won't be going to church tomorrow.  The thought of even getting dressed makes me tired!
I have so much I need to do and want to do.  I don't have time to be sick!  Ugh!
