Funky Art Queen Update
It has been a great week so far. I have felt so much better since we got a call from Cody on Friday of last week. He sounded so upbeat and happy. That did me and Craig so much good. Cody said he is the assistant dorm leader and he feels he is one of the best marchers. He told his father that he is appreciating life so much more and not just "sitting on my ass". He sounds pumped up about his Airforce training and that gave me such comfort.
I continue to work on my metal, soldered, and found object jewelry. This is a picture of my current works in progress. I spend so much time on each piece trying to decide what it is I am trying to say and how I am going to say it. I love going through my box of metal found objects and old jewelry pieces to put each piece together. I have such amazing friends. Last week, Kim gave me a large zip lock baggy full of her old, broken, discarded jewelry. Then, today, Renea and Lisa gave me another huge bag full of discarded jewelry pieces. I have so much junk to turn into treasure. I just can't say enough about my dear friends. They spoil me.....really I don't know what I would do without them.
OK, now I must give you the Chandler garden update. I really wanted a huge garden this year....but we just could not pull it together . So, I have my container garden again this year. Here are pics of my tomato plants and my jalapenos. I have cillantro in the front yard in barrels. So, we have everything we need (except for the onions) to make an awsome salsa.
