I hope everyone had a Happy Independence Day. I live in a very small town, so it was a very welcome quiet and peaceful day.
Last week I had a "bug in the ear" event, it was a first for me. Looking back, it was a bit hilarious, but it did end in an ER visit to extract, and I'll spare you the squeamish details. From a Facebook post, I was surprised how many people replied they have had this happen. I think I've figured out my million dolor invention, a bug screen for the ears. If you never hear from me again, you'll know I've figured it out.
I went through chemo earlier this year. My waist long covid hair fell out and I looked like GI Joe, and not exercising on a regular basis left me wondering if I could ever get up off the floor if I fell. Instead of going the 'life alert" route, I opted to downloaded a yoga app to my phone instead. This is much more enjoyable than the wii I had a few years ago. I'm already on level "hard to get down on the floor, but don't need a chair to get up". By the time Glass Craft re-opens in Vegas next year, I hope to be able to use the stairs instead of the escalator, not that I ever used the stairs before..... (grin)
The last big thing that happened this year was getting into a new gallery. Like most of you, new jewelry creations pilled up. I'm now in 3 galleries and am shooting for selling bead in some of the Facebook groups again this fall. I've become real fond of the new heart CGBead-Press. Here's some with my "web" pattern. Simple but striking.
