Will this ever end?

I don’t know about you, but I’m so tired of this COVID19 crap. Please, you smart scientists out there, get a vaccine! We won’t be safe until then.

I’ve felt very cheated because of this stupid virus. You see, I have finally been blessed with a grandchild. I know, so what’s the big deal, right? Well, the deal is first of all she might be my only grandchild and the fact that she is here is a credit to modern medicine!! My daughter struggled to get pregnant. She had so many things against her. It’s a wonder she did in fact conceive. For over two years she was a quite active participant in London’s IVF program. I think it was on the 6th try that my little angel came into being. I consider her my little miracle.

So great she’s here, what am I belly aching about? They live in ENGLAND!! I was supposed to have an almost 6 week visit from them in April….not happening. To appease me at that time, my daughter suggested maybe a summer visit…again, not happening. This is the year for my visit at Christmas, I have serious doubts that will happen either. My precious baby girl will be a year old in October. We were hoping that I could at least go over there before her birthday….again, probably not.

I’m whining on my web site, sorry. I have to keep in mind that my family is happy and healthy. Over and over, I have to keep that in mind.

In the mean time, my wheels lay barren since I have a LOT of work literally just lying around. Things are starting to get into motion again, but at what cost? I’m seriously rethinking about outside shows and/or shows altogether. My little group of friends that participate in the Joplin Empire Market as the Market Artisans are doing surprisingly well despite this crap. One person who does most anything from paper to fiber arts has been making dog treats and I have gone into my yard and created some pretty bouquets of flowers along with selling various cuttings of my ever abundant plants. Flowers and plants make me really happy, so that’s a good thing, sharing the things I love.

I’m still creating just in different ways like the watercolors that I posted last time or the totes with the vintage accents. Heck, I’ve even sewn up three batches of simple fabric masks, some of which I give away. Now, another friend from the Market Artisans has taught me how to make leather wrap bracelets….another diversion. Maybe I’ll ad pictures of those creations at a later date.

In the meantime, I’m going to stay healthy and happy, damn it!!
