Hi everyone,
Well this week has been a very sad week for me. My cat, best buddy, friend of 16 years died on Tues very suddenly. I am really still in shock , I cannot believe that he is gone, just like that.
He was not that sick, he was on medication for thyroid but seemed to be doing well. Although his appetite had declined somewhat, but then he wasnt that young anymore even though he looked good. We were together 24-7 so we were always together, he was left alone very seldom. He was there when I got up in the morning, accompanying me into the bathroom and sitting on the sink watching me brush me teeth Then on to breakfast where he always got fed first. He would then go my studio where he had a nap on his cushion on my worktable. We were never far apart , in the evening he would sit on my legs till bedtime. Everywhere I look I still see him and hear him. I cannot believe he is gone forever. Farewell my best buddy.

Home for a bit

Hi everyone,

Well I am home for a few days and then I go to my son's for mother's day. We started out our traveling with a stint of babysitting dh's granddaughter for a week. From Sun to Fri. She was amazing!! We went to the zoo twice, she just loves it there, too bad the childrens park isnt open yet.

I went to Morrisburg for our annual conference on Thur and left dh to handle things. He did a great job. Morrisburg is from Thur. to Sun. We had some really early days while babysitting and we started our days at Morrisburg really early too. What a great time we had!!! Great classes, great teachers, and great seeing old friends again as well as meeting new ones.
I met Sandy's mom who is such a talented lady, she makes wonderful flowers. I am already looking forward to next year.

I came away with a lot of great ideas for my jewelery, a lot of surface techniques, now all I have to do is get at it. I will post some photos as soon as I can, havent taken any yet of the things that I made. Needless to say I am kind of tired right now but hopefully will catch up with some sleep soon.
Better get back to work.
