tuesday afternoon

i've been so busy these days I haven't had a moment it seems to keep up with all of you, dear readers. Nor to read all the blogs of my fellow bloggers of whose prose I am so very fond! No fun at all! This is bound to change as I get my groove going. But now that we're nearly skidding into month three of 2008, I'm worrying just a little that a hitch has embedded itself into my "giddyup" ... despite the numerous resolutions (as you will recall ... I went just the teeniest bit overboard!)

I'm finally posting a photo or two today, though not of jewelry, but of number one son's band... still unnamed ... or in the throws of naming. Mostly I loved the photographs and thought I would also add a plug for the lovely young woman who did the photography for free as a promo ... Erika Mounts.

So far the boys will be cutting a demo in late March and as they say ... the rest may be history! I get the awesome delight of listening to them on "nearly" a daily basis as they wail away just a door and a breezeway away (yes, that does refer to the garage, actually). And I am happy to say I have not had the desire once for a set of ear plugs!

It's such a treat to see a dream come alive! For all those who have dreams they let die for lack of courage, or energy, or means or otherwise, I hope these young men will enjoy the wonder of seeing theirs flourish.

Being a mother, of course, I cringe somewhat to realize how easily dreams perish or are crushed, but also know that nothing ventured is absolutely nothing gained. And if no one made mistakes, nothing of any worth would have ever been accomplished in this world.

number one son is upfront center ...Go for it, boys! Break a leg! Well ... no ... forget that last one! No leg breaking allowed!

as it is early morning here in the north country, I will have to rush off quickly to dry my hair ... which is now red by the way! By now you've realized it is not, in fact, Tuesday afternoon, but rather Tuesday morning! And Oh, did I not mention I took a major, crazy turn in life and colored my hair something drastic! RED? Well, I'd become so very bored of my bland blonde (oh, yes, it was bland!) and decided since I am only a year away from being a half-century old ... imagine ... that I should get to make a rash decision. I've made so few of them in my life and really, if one must make a rash decision, let it be hair color which at least can be returned to its original state should the decision not work out so well as hoped. Unlike having breast implants or a nose job or an eye lift that leaves one looking much like a strange dolly. I'm sure you'll think of a few celebrities who fit this description! I'll save the tatooing for when I turn 70. That gives me a good 20 years!

Work! gahhhhh! I nearly forgot... as if anyone can EVER forget work. Believe me, working in Human Resources and especially for a staffing company? I do know that many people forget work ...forget to call ... never show ... never are heard from again? Please let it NOT be one of those days!

okay ... work this morning ...

But on another note... and more importantly, as pertains to shiny things ...I do have new pieces and will be photographing and uploading to my websites on Sunday. About time!

I am Happy that you had time to stop by, thank you for the kind words about my blog.
I try to work on it a little each day, still looking for that perfect fit…

What wonderful news about your son‘s band, it is so exciting to see our kids branch out and live a dream…
Does your son’s band have a place on MY SPACE; I am told that it is a wonderful
way to promote ones music….

I loved that part about ear plugs, it reminded me of my daughter’s
16th birthday party.
We hired a band that were friends of hers to play at the party , they were bad and loud, my daughter came to me and asked if it would be ok to ask them to stop playing . I laughed and said no. My reason wasn’t very nice , we had very rude neighbors and I wanted them to hear every note.
It was worth every penny I paid those young men….. It is not often I feel need for revenge but in this case it was warranted.

Ha! I laughed so hard about your daughter's party! Perhaps next time she'll let you pick the band! Yes, the band's called Subdivision ... a garage band by all accounts but they're really pretty good!

Any sign of spring in your neck of the woods?

My best,

Thanks for your visit, Renea. I don't get to visit all the blogs so much these days due to a full schedule ... and I miss that! I truly enjoyed visiting yours and will come by again! Thanks for the kind wishes!
