I am tired of the heat. It has not only been hot, but smoky and hazy and the air is just heavy. I was enjoying going to the pool, but the air quality is so bad that I have been staying inside. We have a big problem with wild fires. It makes the air really awful. I have still been looking for a place to live. I am miserable between where I live and what I am realizing about my family. I still am keeping busy though. I may have a lead on a place to move to...Say a prayer, lift up a good thought, whatever it is you do. I would so appreciate some peace in my life. Again though, I am more myself and doing better.
I made a necklace for Daniel out of watch parts of a broken watch that Ron had...It took me a couple of days of sanding and soldering. I put a wish for him in the bezel. So I call it a wish watch. It is really pretty in a steam punk kind of way and has meaning. I think he will like it. I used silver solder and it is super heavy.
I also made a few cards just playing with stuff. Sometimes paper and glue calm my mind.
I also took on a huge undertaking. I am customizing my Blythe doll...you have to boggle, carve, sand, paint, rerroot add lashes correct gaze, blah, blah blah. She is going to be adorable. I had no idea that you could carve plastic. I always knew I wanted to do it, but the list of materials discouraged me. I used a little green screw driver and a nail buffer. What do ya know it worked. I cant wait until it is done! I have put hours into it so far.
People charge hundreds for these custom dolls if they are good at it. You know, I think I kind of have a knack for it.
Lisa my youngest daughter called me yesterday and said she might come up again and bring my little Andrew. I talked to him on the phone and afterwards cried for an hour. I am hoping they do. My birthday is coming and I just dont want to be alone.
I also signed up for Val's zombie swap so I will be working on that too. I did it last year and it was a lot of fun...
Happy Summer xoxoxoxo melinda
