Yay for Me!!

I can tell this summer is going to be a hot one.  Thank goodness our new house has AC instead of the old swamp coolers.  Of course, when I get my power bill the middle of this month, will let you know just how much I enjoy the AC.  Actually though,  I have it set to come on at 78 degrees, so, should not be too bad.  Patrick has AC, and, he said that his bill is not high at all, as long as you keep it set on 1 temperature.  Keeping my fingers crossed and waiting for the bill to come in.

With this heat coming in so soon, I want to buy a key to our pool.  It is for residents only, but, you have to buy a key for it.  The pool is so nice.  They have "Adult Hours", so, am looking forward to some time spent by the pool.  I'll get some quiet time, cool off and try to relax.

I have been doing a lot of stained glass paintings.   I completed one for my bathroom, completed one for my bedroom window, completed one for Susie, working on one for Christine and Marie, starting one for Tish and designing one for Anne.  I have some scrap wood and am wanting to take it over to my friend so he can cut the wood down for me to make frames.  I did frame the one for the bathroom and it looks beautiful.

I never did make any for the Arts & Crafts because I ran out of time.  Next year!!  Actually, if I get enough made up, I'd like to advertise and have a sale.  See if I can start selling them.  The ones I've completed have turned out pretty darn nice.  Self teaching myself on how to shade and blend colors.  It's so much fun and helps me to relax.

I don't have a printer, so, I go to my friends house and use her's to print off free patterns for stained glass painting.  Jokingly told Tish that I would love a printer for my birthday.  Dropping hints like crazy whenever I see one of the kids.  Mom needs a printer!!

Staying busy, doing something I enjoy so much and trying to stay out of the heat!!!  So far, so good.

(can ya'll actually believe I posted and not one word about confusion, memory loss, wanderings, eye movement, seizures, Dr appts, walking issues, walkers, wheelchairs, getting lost, terminal, dying and that ugly, ugly word Alzheimer's?)

Yay for me!!


  1. I can't wait to see your glass creations. You may have something that you can utilize money wise. Get that pool key. Like your upbeat words today.

  2. I'm so happy to hear you have a creative outlet, and have plans to get a pool key. :)
