Thankful HeArt and Day Tripping...
After I received the lovely HeArt from Manu (linked to post) and blogged about it I received some lovely comments. One of the comments was "oooooh I love Sacred Hearts. So very beautiful. I would love to have a few in my collection of pretty things. Hope you're having a wonderful day." This came from Holly of HollyLovesArt blog. Those of you who follow me know I love to surprise my faithful followers from time to time. I contacted Holly and obtained her mailing address. This is the HeArt I created and mailed to her. My favorite things...lace, tulle, seam binding, ribbon, marble, charms and beads are what I used to create this for Holly.
The back just to let her know where it came from. Holly was very pleased. I hope you visit her blog and see her adorable Phoebe fur-child. Holly does some amazing art that is wonderful.
After I spent the past week in jury duty, Mr. C and I decided to join our car club and take a little day trip to Jelly Belly. If you haven't ever been and like candy then you will enjoy the tour and gift shop. Oh and they hand out samples! On this trip Mr. C's Lotus V8 Twin Turbo Esprit turned 30,000 miles. Quite the milestone! We had a lovely day and visited with many friends we don't get to see very often. This photo of me is with my friend Catherine who has tried and tried to help me learn French. I am afraid she must give up as I just do not have the flair for language like I would like to have.
This is coming into the perfect weather for Mr. C to be driving his beloved car and enjoying it. However on the drive home it decided to blow the left turbo seal. That is a very bad thing! I am just sick over this for him. It will require an entire engine removal and rework. I am hoping the downstairs project can be completed before he begins this massive project. The weather was perfect and we did have a lovely drive...until we were about 10 miles from home. Of course he limped his baby home to tuck it safely into its garage and snuggle cover. Such a beautiful car it is!!!
I have lots of cleaning and chores and catching up to do. I missed all of you and your happenings. I missed my commitments for all of last week and now need to get super busy. Jury Duty honestly exhausted me and each evening I couldn't even function. I found it to be extremely stressful. I certainly learned the definition of ad-nauseam. Thankfully we completed our task late on Friday and did not have to extend into this week. Whew!
Spring is here and the birds are singing. The pollen is falling and the earth is dry. Plants are begging for water. I seriously need a crew to help me with everything...however I shall merely tackle each task and do what I can knowing Life Is Good and I am so very fortunate.
May you be enjoying Spring and Creative Bliss...
