Despite popular belief "the one with the most toys..." does not win.
I have to say, I love that Weebly allows me to write blog posts & schedule them to be published at a later date. Maybe this is the Universe's way of nudging me to blog more. Maybe it's just progress. Maybe I need CAWFEE. Who knows.
What I do know is that I would like to share this happy pic with you. You know, because even things we don't necessarily like or want to happen can be positive.
Hope you're all having a spectacular summer!
For whatever reason (whether it's the materials I'm using, stress or you know, weather) the palms of my hands have had dry patches on them lately. This one is in the shape of a heart. It isn't as bad as the other hand, so hard to see on it's own, so I traced it with my favorite blue Sharpie. Seriously, there's a dry patch there. I promise.
It's 12:30 AM & I am still awake. Why (you didn't ask)? Well, because I am "Maum" (pronounced 'Mm-ow-mm') & my Squab is not home from work yet. Damned labor laws & seventeen year olds. (Funny how they can pretty much work 'em like adults, but they still have a midnight curfew.)
Remember my previous post, where I talked about flooding Facebook with positivity from our own lives? (No? Read it here.)
Anyway, I fully intend to keep that up, just not on a daily basis, because let's face it, I have issues.
So here is my next "positive" pic.
This is one of the scars from my recent knee surgery (from my p.o.v.). Healing nicely & looking like a butterfly ("because a dragonfly's body would be longer" <<< says my argument with the Stork because my boys don't know the difference). Have I mentioned yet that I love my orthopedic surgeon? Call me strange for loving this, I'm damned proud.
Wait! Don't go! It's not (hopefully) what you think!
Zach is home, but not out of the woods yet. He still has a long road ahead. Check out the GoFundMe campaign to donate & see more updates.
Aloha & Mahalo to those who have shared, donated & prayed, please keep it up!
Aloha my loves,
This will be a quick post to ask for your love & generosity to be shared with some dear friends of mine.
Their son was recently in an accident & is currently in the hospital. I'm trying to help in every way I can, but am not even in the same state.
So we've (there is a group of us from high school) set up a GoFundMe campaign to help them with any expenses they might have while they are on this journey. The link is below & I ask that if you can't donate, please comment with some encouraging words & support. And share this with everyone you know.
Here's the link in case the widget doesn't load right away.
More about "ME"
Aloha my name is Clare! My main job title is Mom, but I'm also an artist, crafter, avid experimental cook & occasional rabid baker. I live in Idaho with my husband & two sons (the "we" or "us" part of this website), but was raised in Hawaii. Feel free to explore our pages as we grow & change. Mahalo! (Thank you)
