I’m so sorry we haven’t been uploading videos, but Rich uploaded one since his hip surgery, and in doing so, put his lower back out of place.   I know, if it’s not one thing it’s another.  I’m hoping he starts feeling better, and will keep you in the loop.

Thanksgiving was a nice day…Rich and I spent it with our college friends and their daughter (whose newly pregnant) and her husband.  They were making an offer on a house, and being first time home buyers, wanted my input, being an ex-banker.  It was nice to be asked my opinion for something banking related…it’s been a long time since anyone has done that.  The house this couple have chosen is really lovely and I’m hoping they’re able to win it in the bidding war they are in.  I never lived in an area where the housing market was so volatile like Virginia (near DC), so had no idea the lengths these people have to go to, in order to get the home of their dreams.

I’ve been working on a small diamond painting and was sent a huge one, of one of the photos Rich took of my nephew and his bride after their wedding.  The one I’m doing now is about 5″ x 5″ and the one I’m going to do is at least 11 x 14″ so I wan to make sure I have a clue.  Currently, it’s pretty clear that I don’t have a clue as the square diamonds in this small painting are not in straight lines..I don’t know how you can screw that up when the diamonds and square and the spots they are adhered to are also square, but my rows are off and the lines are all wonky.  I hope that I can hide the problems…I saw someone add clear glitter to theirs and wonder if that hides the issues….I really hope it does.  You’ll be the first to know if it works.

Tomorrow is Cyber Monday and I normally really love shopping then, but I’m not sure if there’s anything I need to buy or should buy…so might not buy anything.  Obviously I’m staying away from craft sites and am hoping I can be sure that I don’t break down and go crazy and buy things.
