Just a quick note to say that yes, I'm back from vacation, but I will probably be a bit scarce around here for a while. Or not - the writing might help me. I don't know yet.
My dad had another stroke last week while I was gone. He's semi-comatose now and not expected to recover. We will be putting him on hospice care sometime in the next 24-48 hourse and he will most likely pass away sometime in the next couple of weeks.
With the exception of the bad news, the vacation trip was great. We had a fantastic time in Palm Desert and the weather was perfect. I've got some great pictures I hope to post as soon as I have time to get them downloaded frrom the camera. That sorta depends on how things go over the next couple of weeks.
I got some jewelry made and some new beads came in while I was gone so I've got those pictures, too. There just may be some gaps between posts.
Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments - they really brighten my days!!
Back when I can be...
