End of Junuary.......

"April in Me" Etsy shop

"Heart of Mine"

Linkoln learning how to manuever with his cast as Joe Boxer watches.

I'm pretty sure this month will go down in the history books for being the coldest and wettest June ever! I'm praying for some sunny days and especially for Art by the Bay come July 9th. Come on.....! Whoever's in charge up there, send some sun....

New and noteworthy

Just added to my Etsy shop!

Holy cow, June is nearly over and we are still waiting for summer. We seem to get a bit of a tease of sunshine here and there but it's not stuck around for more than a half day. Around these parts we don't expect summer to start till after the 4th of July. which is just about 3 days away. Waiting.......

Heartring Necklace

In my Etsy shop soon!

Soccer Ball Mishap

Linky waiting for the doctor to on the cast.

At home on the sofa surrounded by toys. Lots of art on the cast already...

 My sweet little 2 year old grandson Linkoln (pictured below with the puppy) broke his leg on Friday while trying to kick a soccer ball. Yep, he took a tumble and his little leg got twisted somehow. Poor guy! This happened while Linkoln was at a family outing with his parents. Would you believe there just happened to be a cousin there that is a paramedic and another cousin in attendance that is an emergency room nurse. So the break was assessed quickly and by late afternoon he was on his way to Children's Hospital in Seattle, by ambulance, where a cast put on and he spent the night. Thank goodness, even though it was a bad break it didn't require surgery. As you can see the cast goes from his ankle to his chest. It will be a challenge keeping an immobile 2 year old happy and entertained for the next couple weeks till he can get a walking cast.

Linkoln and Jaxon

New photos of Linkoln, my 2 year old grandson, taken by Linkoln's Aunt Molly. She does such a great job doesn't she?

Golf anyone?

Our friend Rick, left, me, and Norm on the right.

We recently took a few days off and spent some time at a familiar golf resort in eastern Washington with a group of our closest friends. When I say golf resort it sounds sort of uppity but Alta Lake Golf Resort is a pretty laid back place. My husband and I, along with a pretty large group of our friends, started an annual golf tournement there over 20 years ago. Except for the obvious aging, this group of friends has changed very little over the years and we all still get along like family. It's such a relaxing experience and we always come back refreshed and happy. We played 72 holes of golf in 4 days so we got plenty of excersize. The weather could have been a bit better, only one day of sun, but I've decided not to complain about it and I'm already looking forward to next year....

Takin' a break....

 20% off "After Midnight" bracelet now in my Etsy shop.

Hubby and I are getting ready for a few well deserved days off. Hopefully we are headed off to some sun-filled fun with a big bunch of friends. It will only be 3 days so we will have to squeeze every bit that we can out of our time away. by the pool. Can't wait!
