Hurry Up and Wait

I have a personal motto in which I try to live by it is, to do the best I can with whatever I'm doing. I love making jewelry it really is my joy, I'm sharing this piece that is already sold just because I love it so. I feel I must also share a bit about my personal life…

Our household and my work schedule as of late has been and will be in a constant state of flux and will be for some time. My husband and myself have taken on the care for my elderly Father-in-law who lives a good hour from here through congested, often aggressive traffic. My son helps when he can and his good cheer is always appreciated. We have a very excellent caregiver who relieves us for two sacred days and that is a true blessing. Lately I have been darting down filling in, on the fly, willie nilly and I must say I really detest having no schedule so I'm working on that. I'm hoping to take the weekends and to be able to work in my studio during the week, that is my plan anyway. My little doggie is always afraid of being left behind for a Home Alone #3, 4 or 5 incident so he isn't taking any chances of being overlooked! I have left him home with Eric since he is nearly blind and he has our house memorized but I took him with me last time and I was amazed at how well he adapted. ( he likes me best :) His presence was a nice distraction and a comfort for Professor Darrow and myself so Mart now has a job as a therapy dog.

The good part is that Mr. Darrow's home has a full ocean view and a constant, wonderful, cool breeze. I took this picture of the blue moon at the edge of the continent at about 4 a.m. when I should have been asleep. Pretty, pretty, maybe I should work on some moon pieces…

I appreciate your patience with shipping and listing and the like, I just wanted you to know, I'm doing the best I can!
