How's it goin' y'all?

Just stopping by for a few minutes to say hello and to see if everyone is doing OK.  I'm doing my usual thing, working out and trying to eat healthy.  I'm still playing around in the studio and in between play times I even found time to finish a commissioned order of miniature food earrings.  They have been received now so I can show them to you.

This time I added cheese to the burgers...


and since some of them were to be PR for a diner in Georgia, I made some bacon and eggs...


and ham and eggs...



I also made some hot cakes and some waffles, but the photos are not the best. And just for fun, I'm posting a picture of me.  I had my hair cut six weeks ago and never got around to posting the before and after pics, but here I am now. Almost time for a trim.



We are having a lovely day today.  Actually quite cool and comfy.  We have had so many days already in the upper 90's that a day in the 70's is wonderful.  Even with the heat I have enjoyed sitting on out on the deck and reading.

Speaking of sitting on the deck, we lost power one evening last week. We had plenty of battery time on the laptop, so we lit a couple of candles, got some chips and ginger ales and sat out on the deck in the dark and watched Andy and Barney on DVD while the power guys tromped around in the woods in the pitch black working on the cable.  That was fun.  They didn't figure out what was wrong for quite some time, but we finally got power late the next morning.  Looks like a generator might be in our future.

Well, that's it for me today.  I'll try not to take so long between posts, but I know you know how it is.  Take care and keep me posted on what's happening in your part of the bloggersphere.

Love the foodie jewelry. When I was younger, I had hotdog and hamburger earrings..and a soda cup with a straw! Yours are too cute! You're very talented!

The jewelry is great! If only the calories were that small....ah, if only. Very clever and glad that you did some commission work!
Glad also that the weather has improved...one of the things recently purchased here (without my knowledge I might add) was a "Pocket Socket"...which appears to be an outlet (10 volts 120 AC) which must be cranked by hand. Somehow I don't think that is the generator one might need in the event of a power outage...the idea was interesting...buy a full size gas generator when you get one!
Like the haircut, by the way...it looks really nice for you!
Glad you checked in. Thanks!

PS--I forgot to mention how pretty your new slimmer look is! I think the haircut accentuates that, but I have been reminded I was remiss in not mentioning it! All your hard work has paid off and is apparent in the new photo! Peg says you really look younger too!
