A chronicle of the meanderings, false starts (which in retrospect, while sort of embarrassing turned out to be highly instructive), epiphanies, selective apathy (still evolving), wild mood swings, opinions (subject to frequent change), and life lessons of an inveterate dabbler (and her latest dabblings).

They Grow Up So Fast

It seems like one moment they're just lying there, all inchoate and full of possibilities, and the next moment they're all dolled up and hanging off the neck of some exotically gorgeous model at a glitzy party. Sigh. You want to keep them all to yourself forever, but they have to grow up eventually.

My Baby All Grown Up
And I imagine, or at least I hope, that my coppery little bundle of joy won't be under our roof much longer. It will be winging its way across the country somewhere, destined for romance and excitement. With its white stick pearls, garnets, periwinkle glass and deerskin leather to remind it of Mama.

I'm not even going to tell you how long I was in labor. It seemed like forever. Like two whole days. But it was probably more like two half-days. Because I did other stuff yesterday too, and it's not even 2:00 yet today and I finished it a couple hours ago.

Exotically Gorgeous Model
I suppose I should get dressed. It's almost 2:00.


  1. It's beautiful!! <3
    ...and fyi I am totally not getting dressed today! lol!

  2. You crack me up! You could write for the J. Peterman catalog ;-)

    Enjoy the day!

  3. (snorksnerk) You're great! And so's that necklace. LOVE the stick pearls as accents!

  4. Sigh...Sometimes I just wish they would stay babies forever...but I get it...their destiny is not our own..Sigh.

    Stunner of a Necklace!! Warmest Regards,Cat
