Starting the sixth month of this year is unbelievable. Time slipping away. I'm home, tired, need a vacation to get over the vacation I had. Going to set June on fire. Lots to do. Cheers
This photo and saying was supposed to go with the post about what the 5 months so far have been for me.
Hope all are enjoying a pleasent Sunday. Quiet here in Salem, in now watching golf.Titan & I just in from walk. He's napping. Sweet baby. Take care. Cheers
Here's my latest favorite breakfast. Egg and avocado. You could eat this any time of day.
We are having a nice day. I went out early , walked with Titan. I'm in now working on a special request for a custom styled necklace. Just spent an hour going through supplies, finding what I feel will work in the design. I'll post a picture once I finish.
Have a good day. Spark on!!
It's a glorious day here in Salem today. Titan and I walked early. I spent an hour laying out supplies for a special custom ordered necklace.Challenged to create a fab piece. Cheers
Another day being held hostage to the high pollen count. Rain coming, hope that damps doen the pollen. The severity of my algeries hinders my jewelry work. Beach life is calling. Hang in there. Cheers
This the beautiful State Capitol Bldg, Salem, Or. The rains started again, keeps us green and dampened down the pollen. TG. Feeling better. Stay on track friends, Cheers
is working out in the pool . Moving around in water when back or joints hurt is so much better than land exercise. See doctor tomorrow. Doing the best I can, putting some plans on hold.???? Cheers
Beautiful flowers, since I didn't plant any myself need these to remind me what I missed. Will buy some at the Farmers market on Sat. Cheers all.
I just finished a special order for a necklace. This is the fourth one I made, the others weren't quite right. Although I'll keep two, I took one apart. The first one was too large for the customer. Trying to scale back a piece and keep the design is sometimes tricky. Here's the inspirational necklace customer saw for $1500.00 , wanted me to create something similar for a lot less.
Next post will show the one I made.
Think I did pretty good.
This is the necklace I made for a customer who saw one for $1500.00 but only could afford $75.00. Previous post shows the inspirational one. Here's what I managed to make for her price. Still used gemstones. Turquoise, jade, carnelian, lapis, and couple silver charms.
These are the Chickpea patties I made this morning, Saw the recpie trending on Yummy. They turned out so good. Surprised me. Good day all. Cheers.
Happy Fathers Day. Hope all have a great day and enjoy what they like the most.
Here in Salem, Or. we are experiencing a heat wave. 102* today. So I walked early while about 66*. Will head out to pool this evening , water will be warm, shade in pool area and I'll enjoy some exercise while cooling off. Do have AC so more fortunate than some others. Heat affects my appetite, only want salads and maybe a grilled piece of meat. No hot foods. Drink lots of water, but I always do that.
Hope everyone is enjoying what's going on..

Today's First Day of Autumn.
My mind has been in the Fall mode for a week, ever since the change in weather.
Thinking slow cooker, carb meals. Cider, hot cocoa, donuts. All the things we relate to cooler Fall days.
I've got a few weeks before I leave for Miami Beach. So doing my best to avoid the Fall cravings.
Not doing as much home cooking, so being choosy in take outs and deli foods.
Hope you all enjoy the season.
Welcome in the new month of October. I love fall weather, will enjoy the little time I have here in Or. It won't be Fall in Miami Beach. Cheers
is running on energy that I don't know where it's coming from. Electric stops being in my name Sat. So have to be out. Miami Beach here I come. One of these chairs has my name on it. Cheers.
Almost ready to leave on my road trip. A few more items to load. Friends having me for dinner. Get a good nights rest, up at dawn and head out. Titan, my Yorkie knows somethings up, been keeping to his bed. He went to the groomer and I packed his things.

Back from a early walk while still relatively cool. It's going to be a hot 91* day. For Oregon this time of year, that's hot. Took Titan so we didn't set any records. Titan loves to stop and sniff trees. No surprise there. Keep house closed so won't have to hook up A/C. Hope all have a good start for the week.
Seven years with Spark and all the wonderful friends and support I have received. Thank you all . Will post a blog, just trying to get my thoughts together. Cheers
