Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Oh Happy Day! That is what was written on the package this beautiful beaded and tatted turtle came in today. I have been home waiting for the water man all day. Did he show? Of course not. It rained on and off, but he was delivering water!!!!!
Well, I did a little gardening and mom stopped by for a short visit. The day wasn't wasted, but I could have been finishing my paint job.

Tomorrow my friend Judy Grant will be arriving in the AM and I am so in need of some company, especially one who enjoys CQ. I have gotten off subject as usual,sorry. I am just excited and can't stay focussed.

So......after waiting for a no show, I went to check my mail and there was this ever so delicate,scrumptiously beautiful tatted turtle necklace from my super talented friend Tatbit. What a surprise! The colors and beads in this necklace are frosted sage and pale lilac. Tatbit described what the stones were and I must share because it was very touching as you shall see.

Turtle stone is a Peace Jade: A stone of gentleness. I can see hearts in it.Way cool!
The green rounds are Green Adventuriine:Adventuine enhances creativity.It is the heart charm which activates to clear and protect the heart. This is weird, because Friday I had to have an EKG!!! Spooky Tatbit.
It also provides Joy and Clairity .While wearing this necklace,I'm supposed to have joy in my heart....Oh yes I will, for more reasons than the special stones. Being from a dear friend is definitely a reason to have joy in my heart . Thank you Tatbit, you certainly are a sweetie.

Still alive,just busy

Well, it certainly is true when they say everything happens at once. Between Dr. visits....seems I have acquired High blood pressure(?????),I have been painting one of my MIL's rentals and the previous tenants were heavy smokers. You can imagine the paint I am going through. Thank goodness the house has air, it has been in the 90's here. Then DH wanted to open the pool yesterday only to find we need a water top off. This means I have to wait until Monday for water delivery before we can add the chemicals and start the filter. As you can imagine my garden is in heaven with this heat wave and humidity,but so is the grass. A friend asked for some studio help but as you can tell, I haven't been able to get away from my own jobs. I have a CQer coming for a visit on Tuesday and am so excited to meet her and play. So.......if you don't hear from me, I am painting,mowing,helping others..........Have a nice week!
