The Days are Getting Better and Better

I need to catch things up on my other blog, www.LemonSugarLyme.com, but good news can go anywhere, and I have to say, this is good news. I've had more good days the last three weeks than I have in months. When I crash and have to stay in bed, I don't even mind, because now that I've tasted pain-free freedom, I can deal.


To that end, I've slowly (or, as slowly as I know how to go!) started to complete projects and propose new ones. The biggest plan is doing the 9th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party. There are others who do similar bead swaps, but there's something really special about this group of ladies who jump in with both feet and truly look forward to it. I've given myself doable dates, and of course Rick helps me) so I'm so happy about that.

A Bead Soup example.


I'm also loving family time. Zack and I played Monopoly Empire tonight, and we've been playing at lot of the card game WAR in the morning over breakfast. We talk about a ton of random things, too. For instance, today on the way to school, we were coming up with band names and their first songs.


NOT Biscuits (Don't Bake Me For Breakfast, Darling)

The Purple Cucumber (Salad for Seniors)


I know there were more but my laughter gene trumped my memory gene and I no longer remember, and I was driving, so I couldn't write them down. But this is a game we're going to keep playing ... especially once we start drawing their album covers.


I continue on my slowly but surely liquidating certain things both from my stash of beads and my stash of jewelry. My web site is down for now, and I'll get to putting a new one up soon, but in order to keep this post positive, I won't go into the mess that was WebGate 2015. Lordy.


I will leave you with this from a Jane Austen book, dear readers, and hope you will come back and enjoy. Feel free to ask for certain topics!

  8. I'm so glad that you've had good days, it gives hope when you have felt lousy for so long.
    The game of band names you played with Zack sounds like fun. My son Joey and I used to play funny games like that, one of us says one word, then the other would say the next until we had an entire story it's loads of silly creative fun. Its nice to have sweet kids to lift one's spirit. I will pray that you keep on having those good days until all you have is good days!!!

  15. Wonderful news. Glad you're doing better, and I sincerely hope your health will keep improving. Wishing you all the best. *hugs tightly*

    I haven't been doing jewelry for a while now, or crafting in general, that mojo seems completely gone currently. But you can totally sign me up for the BSBP, that one is super special for me, and I have always managed, somehow, no matter how crazy life got.
