I've Been Lying

Well, sorry no pictures today. Can't find the connector to plud it in, but I have to confess I've been lying to you all. We didn't fly to Seattle on Thursday, we went to Michigan instead. My DS Em turned 60 yesterday, & we had a surprise party for her. We actually head to Seattle next Wednesday.

I gave her a purse that I made for her, & will post the photos yesterday. I want to ask Mindy if she knew that she had some glass that glows in the dark. When they turned out the lights to wait for Em to come in, one of the blue glass cabachons that I had attached to the purse glowed beautifully in the dark! I was amazed!

We're staying at my brother & SIL's house on Whitelake. The weather is ice rain today. It's a good day to stay in by the fire. Yesterday we walked along the channel out to Lake Michigan. The winds were bitter, but it is beautiful. There are hundreds of swans & other water fowl.
I couldn't help but think of Allie while I was out there by the lake.

Well, welcome back to Michigan! Too bad the weather isn't better. Hope you have a great visit.

I'm so happy you two made it!! Mom is still thrilled, between you guys and Chris and Sam making it too. It was a great turnout, and mom is still talking about it!! Love you!!

Hey Deb,
Yes...I have glow in the dark powder that I tried adding to glass...but its pretty much 'nothing' to the glass in normal light so I forget about it. You're the first to notice it.
Been rather tragic here...Christi's best friend's brother was killed in the avalanche on Friday.
On another note...interestingly...when we were in Cordova running a clinic a gal living there I've known for years mentioned her daughter lives in Quadra lane (sp?)....small world huh?
Broccoli misses you...but the fifty thousand birds keep him entertained...and was a great distraction for Christi on Saturday as well.

Cunning plan! Hope you're enjoying your trip away.

Have a great time with your sister in Michigan. Would I love to see those water birds on the lake.
A glow in the dark jewel sounds like it belongs in a fairy tale, how fun!

I forgive you for lying to us!! The weather was horrible while Bee was here so we didn't get to see each other much. She was at the party, of course and she and hubby came up for a few hours on Mon. to visit but the weather turned to white-out conditions so they headed back early. :( Didn't get to see them again before they left. The party was wonderful but too short!! See photos on LeiLei's blog. (Deb's niece)
