This week...

I have been in a bit of a fog this week. After all the excitement of Matt's graduation and having my parents visiting from Florida I was rewarded with a killer cold. I'm not sure getting up at 4 am on Monday to take my folks to the airport helped me any. I've been dreary, and the weather has also been dreary. We've had several days of cold rainy weather and snow in the mountains. It's funny how here in the high desert a couple of rainy days actually feels like a treat!

So I haven't managed to get much done this week, I left work early the other day to go home and take a nap and after I woke up I decided to fire up my torch for the first time in over a week. Turns out it's hard to make beads with a drippy nose, and silver foil flys all over the place with a good sneeze. I did manage to make a new bead I kind of like. I'm calling it Canyon Flower. (Or is it too weird?) Perhaps it will lead me into a new direction.

Speaking of canyons, I'm heading down to Moab, UT, today with my beadmaker friend Rosemarie Hanus. She occasionally comes to Salt Lake on business, and since she's here over the weekend we are going to go to Arches National Park. I'm planning on having an inspiring weekend hiking in the red rock country!

I vote for continuing on in this new direction - although I love your old direction too - but the canyon flower is quite different for you and I believe you've captured the look, chica. Can't wait to see more.
