Where's Sharon?

It's been a month.  So far, so good.  I've been unpacking and getting that studio straightened around...I've nearly got the house arranged and unpacked but little in the way of decoration on the walls.  Ah, except for the beautiful gift given to me by my friend Sharon Dent and an incredible slate Michigan mitt for notes and a reminder of my friend Eileen.  I'll include a photos later as everything gets a home.  We've been scoping out a new chair for Brian - so far I like this, LOL:

"The girls" are adjusting nicely - Daisy and Trudy seem happy with the new digs.  Daisy spent a week swimming in the creek at our sons and her hip and leg are holding fast.  She even fronted off a horse or two but slipped back under the fence quickly when Zohan took her up on the challenge.  Constant muscle building and fitness work - slow and steady.

We are loving North Carolina - we miss our two adult children and our newest Grandson, Abel, but we will get up to Michigan often.  We went to the Liver Mush Festival with our children, who live here, and our new granddaughter, in Marion.  Yup, you heard me correctly - up north I guess we don't know squat about liver mush but here they fry it up and serve it in a sandwich.  My mother and father would have loved it.  Me, not so much.  But the festival was fun.  Down home, lots of families, plenty of happy and music - and let's not forget that mush!

I've been making some blown beads - trying to get my hands back in working order.  I'll get them posted soon.  I'm getting myself back in gear - gears are good, slow but accurate.

More to come - and more often too!
