Hi Izzy. I have been absent for awhile. I am hoping someone will step up and be the new team leader. Right now I am just so overwhelmed. Hugs

Hello everyone. I haven't visited this team in a long while and thought today would be a good day to do so. Hope everyone is healthy and staying safe.

Hi Team!

I don't come by often but have had all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all are healthy and safe from Corona.

Think I'll take some pics later while out for a walk. Will try to do a bit more posting here.

Have a great day!

Whatís the promise youíve made and havenít kept?

What promise has been made to you that hasnít been honoured?

What needs to happen now?

For me the promise to live a healthier life style has been both the promise made by me for me and has not been honoured. I will continue to work on this!

Always nice to have that together time to relax and talk. My husband and I do the same. I think it is because we are away from home, maybe feels ,like a mini vacation.

Every day is a new beginning Take a deep breath, smile and start again.

It really was. We always talk a lot when we are on a road trip. Seems at home we just go about our business and never finish a conversation. That is one reason I love taking drives even if we don't find anything interesting to shoot.

It is a lot of pressure. I don't like taking wedding shots or other occasion shots as i feel I must be perfect. I love nature shots like this one.

Hi Friends,
Finally a few minutes free to post. Went to swim class but pool was closed as both Building and pool were too cold-64degrees and dropping. Will now have to exercise some other way today.

Will have to photograph my new jewelry work and post it here. It's been too warm here for any fall color so maybe next week we'll see some color change. It was in the 40s last night and is still pretty cool out .

Hope all of you have a fantastic weekend. I will be heading to Atlanta for 4 days. Hubby will be at the CDC for research meetings and I hope to find a class in jewelry while there.

Have to dash.

I was gone all weekend also visiting family.
My mother's side of the family had a family reunion. I went a day early and stayed a extra day to visit family members on my father's side of the family too!
Had a great time and one my cousins had located an Aunt we had lost track of a few years ago so a group of us went to visit her in a Care Home she is now in. We had such a wonderful visit!!!

Hi Folks,

Geez Louise! Some folks are having extreme heat! It's 93 degrees here and 48% humidity and that's plenty hot. I hope those who are having really high temps are staying inside or swimming to stay cool and hydrated. emoticon

We'll be heading out to our lake house shortly. We had an overnight guest so had to hang around for the morning.

Friends, thanks for your nice response to my jewelry. These pieces were made while I was both learning them and teaching students. I was an assistant instructor which meant interruptions in my work to help students. These projects will now be refined a bit more and then I'll make new pieces and try variations on them.

Hope all are having a good weekend. Enjoy emoticon

Hi All!
Just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a great day. It's almost the weekend!!! It's supposed to be hot (94 degrees or more each day throughout the weekend). I'm looking forward to going to the lake and swimming and try out our new deck furniture.

I have just posted a series of jewelry photos from my recent metals classes. I was an assistant instructor for 12 classes and these pieces are what we taught. I had to learn the piece while I was teaching it. Now that can be challenging at times. Teaching is where one finds out just how good their metal skills are and how good one is in exchanging the information. So some pieces are barely finished and still need some finish work.

Yes, I remember you saying you were born in Salina!
And Isabel, we are almost neighbors!! I live in Wamego, Ks!!!
Next time you are in the area we can get together and see the waterfalls. The easiest to get to is Pillsbury Crossing, it is just outside of Manhattan.


Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

Okay ladies...... all of this Waterfalls talk I just have to let you know that Kansas has waterfalls too!!!
Not real tall ones, and usually only able to see them in Spring and Early Summer when we get most of the rains. But they are pretty!!!
Here are some pictures of Kansas Waterfalls!!! emoticon

Chase County Fishing Lake


Alcove Springs Waterfall


Pillsbury Crossing Waterfall and area where a road crosses near here and you drive through the water when it is low enough. Not in this picture unless you are in a pickup.


This is also Pillsbury Crossing in Late Summer....

There are some beautiful water falls up Highway 138 east of Roseburg and some great shots of the North Umpqua.

I have been retired for 2 years now and am loving it. Its like my creative side has awoken and taken over. Photography, hot glass work, weaving, and now am taking clay classes through the Art Center. It feels sometimes that I busier now than when I worked but all things that I love doing.

Thanks for your comments. I started making jewelry with bead stringing in 2009, moved on to precious metal clay (PMC) certifications in that same year, then decided I really needed traditional metalsmithing skills so began finding classes when I had any free time. With retirement coming up in a couple of weeks, I'm hoping to focus on jewelry making and skills and really try to make a big jump in my skills.

I am to be an assistant teacher in late May/June for about 2 weeks at a major jewelry show which provides hundreds of classes with instructors coming from all around the world. It will be a fabulous learning experience as I help students. When teaching someone a skill, you quickly learn where your skills are shaky.

The ring is for a man with large hands. It is sterling silver with a kyanite oval cabochon. He was delighted with it and it fit well.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. [Winston Churchill]

Realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.
Dare to make your own history; be yourself and lead by example. [Darie Lapp]

Even with the wet and wild weather we are having we couldn't resist a trip to the ocean (Shore Acres). The waves were huge and just wonderful to photograph.

What a wonderful trip. Retirement is a huge transition but after 3 years I've found I love it and don't know how I ever found time to work! Always hard to end relationships and I'm sure patients become very much part of your life just as my students did.

Hi! Hope everyone had a wonder Christmas and a great fun New Year's Eve. I was in Costa Rica and will post some pics later. We attended the hotel party for New Year's Eve and it was lots of fun. We had one couple from Costa Rica (the wife teaches french at the University) and husband spoke just a little English. The other couple were from France and spoke a wee bit of English. My husband understands some Spanish and I speak just a wee bit of Spanish but can speak some French. We were reasonably able to communicate with each other using a combo of languages.

We visited the volcano area of Costa Rica, went hiking in the rain forest, enjoyed the hanging bridges and the wonderful waterfalls and especially the hot springs.

We are retiring the end of the month and have lots of work to close up all the paperwork, records and personal belongings. It's bittersweet for us as we say goodbyes to each patient. I have to consider what I'll do next as I really want to keep working but not full time. We want to take some time to work on things in the house so that will give me some time to explore the next step.

Wishes for each of you to have a healthy, happy and prosperous 2018!
Lapperoo

The weather has turned windy and rainy which makes it hard for me to want to go walk. I went to WalMart and did about 20 minutes today and a few spins around the inside of my house. Not great but better than nothing, I suppose.

It is crazy because yesterday was sunny and warm. We went to Shore Acres and photographed the lights and never got cold.
