Focusing on the Positive.

It's easy to say, but hard to practice some weeks. This week has been particularly challenging for me. My job can be incredibly stressful and I have mini-meltdowns (about 2-3 a year), but nothing that a few days off doing something I love and enjoy doesn't usually fix. So I'm not sure what I want to do this weekend, but I just received some new beads that I'm itching to play with, that is if I can part with them. I know it can't be just me that has a hoarding problem. I want to keep everything that I might not be able to replace, which is almost everything I get. I have to learn to let go and make things with the lovelies that I buy. I just bought some very cool carved jade beads and made earrings last night. Maybe I will make a necklace to go with them...

In the meantime, here are some pictures of a necklace and earrings that I did a few weeks ago. Again, pardon the pictures, since my camera is still not back yet!

Have a great weekend and let us all remember to try to focus on what is right in our lives, because it could be so much worse.

Puppy Update: Baxie, my 5 year old Boston Terrier, has been very sick with a bacterial infection in her lungs. She lost 7 lbs. of muscle (since she didn't have any fat on her to begin with), has a horrible cough, and didn't want to play or eat for several weeks. I'm happy to say that she is doing much better; three weeks, x-rays, 3 doctor visits, 5 different antibiotics, 2 breathing treatments, asthma medicine, and steroids later. Nothing that a couple of my paychecks couldn't fix.
