But it's amazing what the love and support of family and friends can do.
Even friends I've never met.
First, I got this email from a return customer...........
.".....THE RUG ARRIVED ON FRIDAY EVENING AND WE THINK IT IS GORGEOUS! THE COLORS REMIND US OF OUR FAVORITE BEACH ON MARTHA"S VINEYARD, IT IS SO LOVELY AND HARMONIOUS. YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL TALENT AND SENSE OF COLOR ... .................................................
.......YOUR BEAUTIFUL WORK GIVES US PLEASURE EACH AND EVERY DAY AND ADDS SUCH PEACEFULNESS AND HARMONY TO SPENDING OUR SUMMERS ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD.
WITH MUCH APPRECIATION,
Here's their rug.
It is a lovely, warm feeling, to be appreciated for what I am passionate about. One of these days, I am going to get back to it without distraction.
Then I got an email from my bff, reminding me of stuff I knew, but needed to hear anyway. That's what best friends are for.
My oldest childhood friend called me on the phone to offer up some words of wisdom.
One of my daughers called, just to let me know she was thinking of me.
I got texts, and emails, and phone calls, and before long, I was feeling better.
Remembering all the things I have to be grateful for. A great family, good ......exceptional .....friends. So many things.
I made this tonight. It was one of those Facebook things that get passed around.
There are sauteed onion and garlic underneath slices of zucchini, yellow squash, potato, and tomato.
I only had one tomato.
The recipe called for thyme. I used fresh basil.
It called for Italian cheeses, I used feta.
You cover with foil, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, then uncover it put the cheese to melt.
And I was liberal in my use of salt and pepper.
As I am wont to do.
I've always loved that phrase. Wont to do.
I guess it could be worse.
Did I mention that I am just doing one day at a time???
Cause I am.
Thank goodness it works.
