I am happy and sappy so I am going to let you know: My heart is always in Michigan with family. Rosanne had a birthday party for me over Labor Day. Thank you Rosanne!
I was so thankful not to share turning a year older with a hurricane!
Rosanne made home-made Margarita Pizzas with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Yumm!
There was cake and ice cream
The best birthday party ever surrounded by my Son and Daughters.
And sister Susie.
Plus all of my grandchildren
And my sweet Momma too!
My Birthday was a day
I will always Treasure.
This Sufi Saying is similar to one I used raising my children. Think before you speak. If it is something mean and will hurt someone's feelings keep it to yourself. I am proud of the adults my children have grown up to be.

The saying by Sufi
Time has gone by both fast and slow since surgery on May 17th. I am very limited with what I can do. I've made a comfortable nest on the recliner sofa. I am so looking forward to climbing the stairs and sleeping in my own bed. In the mean time I am stuck here in front the T.V. watching crazy programs my husband likes. I am not a big fan of watching the tube. So I have been sleeping a lot.
Wednesday I take my second trip down the stairs for a drive to the Doctor's office. There are 17 stitches below my toe and 3 more by my big toe. I know getting the stitches removed will relieve a lot of the discomfort. I took a before and after picture but promised my self I would not share it on social media. There are a few weak tummies out there I don't want to upset.
I have managed to do a little beading
I see a few more bangles in my future. The box of beads I brought down stairs is filled with seed beads and crystals. It's easy beading and there is enough there to keep me busy for awhile.
Thanks for stopping by.
I colored outside of the box this weekend crocheting bracelets. I don't usually use bright colored seed beads. My color palette runs with matte metallics and earth tones.
I wanted to show case Art Beads with bead crocheted. Last year I bought these color mixes from Whim Beads. The Ocean is called Fandango. I exchanged a green and added a blue for this combination. The Sand is a mix called Rainforest. I left it alone. It was just right.
The Art Beads are disc beads made by my talented daughter and favorite bead artist Heather Powers of Humblebeads. They were the perfect accent beads for the Sand and the Sea Bracelets.
