My Head In The Clouds


I still have a little sculpting on her,
but she will change into a Mourning Dove for September.
Okay...
I am WAAAAY overdue.
I have tried to settle into a new work schedule.


My wee friends in the Hedgerow have been inspiring me.
I have tried to concentrate on sculpting....
really I have.
It looks like I will schedule
Carpal Tunnel surgery 
if my insurance stays the same.
Of course, 
I have to be different and do 2 surgeries.
One will move a displaced nerve.
so there will be healing time in between.
Nothing major, 
but it will interrupt my work.

Mostly, I have just had a hard time concentrating!
About two years ago,
I wrote of changes 
and hurdles 
that I had to go through.
It wasn't easy... 
but once done,
...and a couple other 
bumps for good measure~
it finally made it possible 
(after 15 years)
to divorce.

Tim and I have been together,
 however we could be,
 for 11 of those years.
and although we both knew that I would eventually divorce...

I was NOT prepared for this!!!
(you may want to scroll down to the bottom of the page and stop the music on the music video to hear this)

I had no clue!

On a visit North to see my Mom,
Tim asked her permission for my hand.
Both knew that passing on 
her engagement ring 
would mean so much
(I know my Dad was watching!)
~*~
Only my youngest ( now dubbed 007)
and my Mom knew...
So during
the Walsh Family Christmas Party,
Tim called everyone's attention for what I thought was Santa coming...
silly me.

My invitiation arrived!
A few days later 
(and my head in the clouds)
I received a very special invitation
for Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween!
Making another dream even more real.
I am so
VERY blessed!

I really need to make one for me....
I'm still having a hard time fully
concentrating...
as I adjust 
to full time HALLOWEEN creating...
and 
plan a wedding.
I'm trying to plant my feet firmly on the ground...
but when I think of all that has happened and is happening,
I am afraid my head is still in the clouds!

Well no doubt your head is in the clouds!! That is precisely where it should be... CONGRATULATIONS to you and Tim!! And what an impossibly romantic way of proposing!! Take the time to savor the magic of this time. Sorry to hear about the surgeries...I've had carpal tunnel surgery done in both hands...years ago already...and fear that it needs doing again. This growing old ain't for sissies... But you need to do whatever it is you need to do so you can keep creating your amazing pieces. So sorry I missed out on Annabelle... Can't wait to see the transformation of the dove.... Smiles & Congratulatory Hugs ~ Robin
