progress wiyh my lampshade project

Today after my annoying headache went away, I was able to put up about 5 or so charms on. The reason for my slow progress is, that I have run out of lobster claw clasps. They are on order, but have not arrived yet. My 5mm split rings have arrived and I have put the rings on my stars to go on my shade. Over all this has been a good day.

Appearently there has to be a leak somewhere under x amount of feet of snow. I guess I will be melting snow again tomorrow for flushing toilets.

On the 4tg day without water

They trucked in some water. we still are restricted in using water for showers dishes and laundry. Iam grateful for not having to melt toilet flushing water

For the 3rd day we have no water 200 houses live on this line and the top 20 houses run out of water first, as we live on top of the catamount Hill. I am getting quite adept at washing my hair with water warmed on the stove, and flushing toilets with melted snow.I remember my norwegian Girl Scout days from Long ago ( smirk)

My last project to be completed

Is the lampshade in below's picture. Do you know Murphy's Law?
as you can see in the picture I am not quite finished placing charms on the ribbon. If I had more split rings, and also more lobster clasps. The rest would be easy. Never fear, ARTBEADS IS NEVER FAR AWAY so i can order replacement parts again. Of course I will have more stash to store again. >.^^.<

My mom arrived safely back home

And construction will continue tomorrow. I will be working today as well, so not too many emails can be written.

A blizzard of great proprtions

Today is a snow day and my center closed for 1/2 day, then for the rest of the night.We were already on the way and turned back. we had not gotten far.

So we were able to do some clearing of more storage areas. I used to quilt with a passion and have 2-3 books on my night stand all the time to read. Now I am not so active with sewing anymore. My daugther will be 14 next 2 months and it is a full time job to parent one.

Beading is like a meditation for me, it focuses my thoughts and gives peace.

I will get new bathroom floors this week and after that the bathroom furniture will be back where it belongs. We were able to repair some items in the house today as well, and since this was an unexpected day off, I made 1/2 of my lamp shade decorations. Plus I was able to put some charms together that always makes me feel so much better

My mom made mayonaise from scratch today, and I am so proud of her!!!!!!!
I made Norwegian Lapskaus beef and potato stew it tastes really good if you use steak tips fresh from the butcher. Today we empied out another storage section and guess what. only about 5% is worth saving. Now I am tired again, and back to work tomorrow. I look forward to this week, as I have Thursday off and I work the weekend, which is always busy
