Well, it's been a long time since I posted a NEW BLOG POST, using INSTAGRAM instead, where my user name is marshaharrisscotthouston
I've decided to return to blogging, at least for now, because I miss the long format, and actual conversations we have, virtually or not.
I am so very sad at the mess our country is in, and I know each of us feel this way, no matter which side we are on. Where has kindness, patience, integrity gone? What has happened to the population who think they can destroy & loot? And, that it's OK to do all this?
There are many problems in my own family right now, extraordinary ones to say the least. My beautiful daughter-in-law has been undergoing Stage 4 cancer treatments at MDAnderson for the past 18 months. She and my son have 4 little children aged 6-13. They all need this woman to stay here on Earth with us. We have many prayer groups going on, and I believe the next round of experimental medicine may show some good signs toward healing her.
My daughter is suffering multiple problems with starting a new home remodeling business, maybe has a bi-polar disorder, having an 8-year old son, a divorce behind her, a new fiance (who doesn't know how to deal with her). Stress 24/7 for her, which she is unable to deal with appropriately. Her mama, me, is of no help because she won't allow it.
Throughout the Covid lockdown, I found myself returning to JEWELRY MAKING, as it's creative and calming. Thankfully, Houston has returned completely to normal, and it is so wonderful to actually go out to dinner with friends again.
The jewelry I'm making is mostly fashion jewelry which I will sell at local casual markets on weekends here in Houston. I don't have the ability to sell to big retailers any longer (which means I'm too OLD). I'll post some pictures of the stretchable bracelets & necklaces soon.
Above photo is of my little hostas garden area, which has brought me much pleasure. Houston is so hot, and the sun so bright, I had to find a perfect shady spot to try to out. Of course, I water 2 times a day to maintain the lushness, but that is also very satisfying.
I've missed you guys !!
