For no particular reason, a fuzzy picture of Lily and Sophie taken tonight with my Iphone.

Well, I'm back. Things have been pretty hectic and stressful around here lately. My Mom is doing somewhat better. In the last 2 weeks she's had 2 surgeries to repair an open fracture to her femur. She was in the hospital for 2 weeks and now is in a care center in the town where she lives. She will have physical therapy there and hopefully she'll be able to get home soon. It's going to be a long, hard road, so please keep her in your thoughts everyone.

I know I haven't written for a long time and I wanted to let those of you who are nice enough to follow my blog know what's been going on. My Mom fell last week and was hurt very badly. She's since had surgery and is doing as well as can be expected, but the going is slow and very scary. I was going to be posting from Tucson next week while I was to be in town for the gem shows but instead I'll be here with my family. I'll be back to posting as soon as I can. Thanks everyone, for all of your good thoughts in advance.
