long time away


It seems like forever since I've been here. I've been away for way too long, for many reasons. I've reevaluated my jewelry style, materials, and intentions and have made some changes. My big old dog is older and more frail every day, so I have been spending more time with him. The new puppy, Toby, has been keeping us busy, just being a puppy. Kittens are fine, work is fine, and my relationship with my beloved is working on being fine. He has been off his ADD meds this year (due to financial/health insurance reasons) and it has been an adventure learning to deal with/learn from/adapt to/modify the ADD behavior. We've been going to counseling for a few months now, and that has helped. We'll be going for a few more I'm sure.

I've also changed my blog location to wordpress. It's a good format for me. Join me there, won't you? I promise I won't be away for so long again.

During this time, I've been practicing a LOT of yoga. It's been good for my mind, body, and soul. It's kept me sane. I've had a change in my diet, as it had become horrible the last few years, and that has helped me focus as well. Lots of trips to the dog park, as above, keeps me at peace too. I've been doing some meditation also.

I've got a new work desk for my jewelry, which provides a lot of room for ideas, and I've started to do some more sewing, that I really enjoy. 

My adventures are far from over, so I hope to see some of you again. I've missed  you all.
