one week later...

I am relieved about the progress of Cameron’s eye. His eye is healing so quickly. Every day there is change and improvement, I just can’t believe it. Right now it looks like a mustard stain, but the swelling has completely vanished and there is little evidence of a scab. One week later and his little eye is practically 100% healed!


I got her! I got her! Meaning, I was finally able to get a photo of mama robin perched in her nest. Since her nest is so close to our front door it’s relatively impossible to get a good photo of her outside so I had to improvise and get one through the glass door. I had the curtains drawn and had my camera zoomed and ready for action. Birds must have super sonic hearing because it’s difficult to walk up to the door before she notices and briskly flies away. But I got her this time. I tip-toed to the door and before she really heard me I got my photo of her one week after she began construction of her nest.


One week ago I put in a request to Sandy (she’s family) for a pair of handmade earrings. Sandy owns SLeeK Beaded Jewelry which designs customized jewelry and she’s really, really good at it. Sandy has a keen eye and pays attention to detail. I didn’t have a photo of what I wanted. All I could do was describe to her what I wanted and she pulled it together with such finesse ~ very impressive! Sandy and I went back and forth through email (she lives in Ohio) for a couple days. She had photos of examples to show me and through many questions and answers she pulled this together. I was pleasantly surprised because I didn't see them until they arrived in the mail yesterday. :o)


I absolutely love my earrings! I couldn’t have found anything like this in a store that mean as much and are as perfect as these. These are one of a kind and they are mine, all mine! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much, Sandy! I love them!

Yesterday, my mother came by for a short visit and with her came Stephanie Meyer's adult novel The Host. My mom was at Target and bought the book for me. I'm not starting The Host until I finish Breaking Dawn. I can't read more than one book at a time. Well, I've never tried to before but I still don't think I can so I'll wait.

That’s it for now. Talk soon!

Julie,

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am blushing from all the praise. It was fun emailing back and forth to find out what you wanted. Telling me about the booked helped a lot. It means so much to me that you really like them. It was a pleasure making them for you. Glad Cameron's eye is healing. That must of hurt! Ouch! Give Jose and Cameron a hug from Ken and me. Thanks again.
Love,
Sandy

I'm glad Cameron's eye is clearing up well!

Beautiful earrings. :) I'll be interested to hear what you think of The Host. I just bought it for my daughter's birthday, so will wait (impatiently) for her to finish it so I can read it. :D
