Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  1. Yeah, in some ways we are the caged ones for sure, especially these days.

    It was my mother’s 95th birthday yesterday and my brother-in-law’s so we had a 10 person gathering. Mom stayed in the house and mostly in bed except to eat. We ate outside and if inside wore masks. Mom received many phone calls and special cards of love. She is on hospice care and has declined greatly since I arrived so a few family members felt like it may be the last time they may see her. It was over-all a sweet day for her…and us.

    Glad you and Al are being so careful. So am I. My best to you both. xoxo ❤

    • Oh, I’m so sorry, Gayle. I didn’t realize your Mother was this ill. I recall you added a Mother’s Day photo of her and she looked beautiful. Was that a long time ago? I do find that time seems to be missing from my day to day. I think it’s the lack of going to places where time is important. I am missing the plays and dance events we used to attend. I always enjoyed the Nutcracker at our theater in Sarasota.
      I agree with being cautious with your mother and visitors. My daughter is a Hospice counselor in NY. I miss her a lot. She can’t leave NY because she works on the COVID patients floor. Last week, she was honored by the her CEO for going beyond her job and connecting a dying ICU patient with his wife through Zoom. It was a heartbreaking day for her – 14 patients had passed that day. It makes you want to hug your family so much more. Sending hugs and prayers your way for a peaceful time for you with your Mother and family. 🙏🏻 🙏🏻 🙏🏻

      • It’s a combination of old age and congestive heart failure. She was stronger on Mother’s Day even though not so long ago. She has really gotten weaker since I got here in mid September…she’s just winding down. I did see her today with a sister who’s visiting and taking care of her. Mom sat up way too long this afternoon and wore herself out because she didn’t want to miss our conversation.

        Mom never has visitors but we made the exception for her 95th birthday and it landed on Thanksgiving this year…even better!

        Hospice people are a special breed for sure. How difficult to lose so many patients in one day…so sad, and congratulations to your daughter for being recognized for her selfless work. All of Mom’s nurses, etc. are exceptionally kind, helpful and understanding. xoxo ❤

  2. I love seeing those Sandhill Cranes…such striking birds. I’ve been seeing a Ruby-throated Hummingbird at my mother’s house just about every time I go over there these days. It’s thrilling to see the teeny, tiny little thing! Hope you’re doing well in these continued days of isolation, Izzy. ❤

    • We get a great amount of birds because of the lake in the back of our home. They are like fighter planes diving into the water and coming up with a fish or two. Our lake, for some reason, has been flourishing with fish more and more every year. These sandhill cranes are majestic and big. I opened the window from our workshop and leaned out to photograph these two. LOL They don’t get scared when they hear noise but they would take off if we stepped outside the lanai. Sometimes, I feel like we’re the caged ones. ~~~~ : )
      Hope your Thanksgiving was filled with blessings of love and good health. Al & I had a quiet dinner and played cards. We’re getting quite good at doing things with little contact from the outside. Since we’re both high risk it’s worth isolating until things get back to some semblance of normal.
      Stay Healthy … Be Safe and Well 🙏🏻
      Izzy 😍 😎
