It's one degree in Fargo with blue skies.
First of all, thank you to everyone who sent prayers, good thoughts, and positive energy for Dagan's dad. His surgery went well and the surgeon thought he got all of the tumors. They will find out the pathology report probably Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully it hadn't spread. So far, things look good! Was so nice to hear good news--especially after Leah losing her mom to cancer this past spring. :)
Thanks so very much on behalf of Dagan and Leah, too.
I forgot to take a close up of the front of the Christmas card. I love the idea of one tree in the forest having a star on top. ;)
When Leah was here last she had a real fresh pineapple! We did three layers in the dehydrator: plain and then soaked some in corn syrup water and some in honey water.
This is what they look like after 6 hours. The honey water one is still pretty sticky, but it's tasty!
Whenever I am cooking or baking in the kitchen Karma watches from the hallway by the door. She knows full well that is the one time I won't look out for her being underfoot and she very well could get stepped on (one of her greatest fears). So she keeps an eye on me from a distance.
During the night this time I played with the art journal some more. I placed that finer mesh on the right side and some metallic mesh with larger holes on the left side. I sprayed Solar Gold Radiant Rain on the right side and Persimmon on the left side and let them dry.
Afterwards I decided to take this raggedy, green metallic mesh and use it on the right side (which still had looked pretty plain) and sprayed it with Golden Bamboo.
Here it is drying in my misting box (with flash).
Left side...I like the honeycomb look...
...and right side (without flash).
They're wet right now.
Am I having fun, or what!!?? ;)
I got some sleep.
The sun is shining.
I am surprised I have kept up so far this month with both nablopomo and AEDM and that I have added the mandala drawing class. I know that doesn't seem like much to most people, but for me? Amazing! Maybe the Protandim is actually having something to do with it? I don't know, but I'm going to keep taking it for now.
Glad we got good news about Dagan's dad and hope we get more next week.
May you all have a wonderful week ahead.
Life is good. :):)
