Busy as Usual

by Lyn Foley on April 3, 2009

Two months without a peep from me on the web only means I have been busy. Let’s see:  I’ve been over at the new house a lot, making decisions and dealing with  contractors.  We’re waiting now for the concrete floor to be washed and stained, and for my propane line and exhaust fans to be installed. It is really down to the details!

Our “old” (not really old, its just 6) house is on the market , and a few people have looked at it in the last two weeks since we listed it. That means  I need to keep everything super clean in case the realtors call.

Meanwhile, we went to Dallas for Artscape, A Fine Art Fair in the Garden.  It was a lovely show, and we did well. However,  a few days before we left Jim caught a very bad bug or  had food poisoning. The doctor never figured just what Jim caught, but said he could go ahead to Dallas. We did, but took all our own food just to be safe. Whew! Jim is finally back to semi-normal after a lot of TLC.

Chapter Two  of “Go Anyway” was published in March our local paper, The Round Top Register. Work on the book continues, although I sometimes wonder if I will ever get it finished and published?

And beads?  Beads? Yes, I have been making beads in spite of everything else, and creating some spectacular jewelry if I do say so myself.  I’m glad the customers in Dallas and elsewhere agree with me. Thank you one and all for your support. You keep me going. Here are a few photos of some of my latest.  All of them have been sold, but I’d be glad to make something similar.

I would really like to learn more about your gorgeous barndominium. We also live in Texas and just purchased 15 acres. I’ve been researching various affordable and energy efficient options that allow us just what you have – soaring ceilings and wide open spaces. I’d really like to learn more about your builder and the design process, if you don’t mind sharing. Look forward to hearing from you!
