Thank goodness it's 2021!!!


I haven't kept up on this blog even though I had the best intentions to become active again here.  What I didn't realize at the time, I had been carrying a heavy weight on my shoulders the last four years.  I didn't expect it as you couldn't have called me political back in 2016.  In fact, I even recall stating to my husband back when trump was elected that he couldn't do that much damage in four years.  Boy was I off base.

Now I am finally feeling something I haven't in quite a while...a lightness of spirit.  Perhaps a light at the end of the tunnel.  With this lightness,  I am not feeling such a need to isolate myself from the world.  Since we are in a world of social distancing, restarting up this blog feels right.  In fact, I am committing myself to posting at least once a week.  Heck, I even put it down in my planner.

Oh yeah.  I am trying to utilize a planner to help keep track of myself.  I have found that I just can't juggle as many tasks in my head.  As soon as I get tired, my short term memory tends to fly the coop and all those bright and shiny balls get dropped.  Since I have always loved tech, I have tried different reminder programs on my phone and tablet.  The problem is that I tend ignore those bings and bongs.  I am crossing my fingers and hoping that going old-school with paper and pens will help.  And it doesn't hurt that it is a planner that I get to color in.    

And since it's been a while, let me introduce myself.  I am Shai and I live with my husband and our menagerie. I used to create jewelry and I am hoping to get back into it in the future.  I am addicted to good tea and coloring.  I also tend to be rather opinionated and love to hear the opinions of others.  How else are you to learn and grow.  And my word of the year is Growth.  I have been stuck in place and now it's time to spread my wings again.

Well that's enough for now.  Be sure to grab yourself a cup a tea and let me know how the past four years have treated you.  


  1. So good to hear from you again! I look forward to seeing some of your beautiful jewelry creations this year! I hope you are in good health.

  2. I’m so glad you’re feeling better. I understand. I will feel much better after 1/20!
