Something in the Air

I’d like to say the the “something in the air” right now is a good thing, but the something in our air is germy.  I am the last of the 4 of us to get this yucky, YUCKY cold.  SOMEONE in this house (that is fairly clean, I am kind of a freak) has been sick since the beginning of April.  First, my Ruby, then my Henry then, my Sweet Pete who thought he’d beat it.  I pride myself on being the one who doesn’t get sick and I always think I can dodge a bullet, after it’s hit everyone else, but this time it got me.  And it got me good.  I have to get subs for my cardio classes and everything!  (THAT’s when you know it’s bad).

This cold is affecting my voice, which although probably a welcome change to my sweet, tolerant husband, is making me nuts.  Those of you who know me really well, know that staying quiet is a challenge.  Those of you that have read just one of my blog entries might have already picked up on that fact. I just have so much to say!  And typing doesn’t hurt my throat so here we go!

Easter was a blast.  The kids love dying eggs and so do Sweet Pete and I.  This year I got 24 eggs so we all had enough to decorate.  Next year I’m getting 48.  Is that too much?  I don’t think so.  Then we will explore all of the wonderful ways hard boiled eggs!  Let’s see, um…egg salad, deviled eggs…did I say egg salad yet?

Here’s a cool link for some after Easter hard boiled egg ideas.  I like it because it has pictures.  I am a visual learner.

In art news, I have been working on my shrink film jewelry and sold a really cool, colorful pair of sunflower/mandala earrings already, before it was even in the shop.  I will be making more of this pattern as there seemed to be a lot of interest.

Here is a before and after pic of some of my pieces and then some that are assembled:

You can also see my cute red shoes that I make work with every outfit I have.  I got them at Snap Snap-I LOVE this place SO SO much.

Go there.  All the time.
