2015 is promising to be a better year than the one before.  Rusty, my little dog who was diagnosed with Leukemia remains in remission and looks and acts like his old self.

New venture is getting weight off of my little dog Pink who would rather sleep than excercise. She eats anything and everything.  That turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  She devours celery, she eats it like it is the best steak you could imagine.  I got the bright idea of cutting the celery up into pieces and throwing it.  Her little legs can run when food is involved.  When we rescued her 5 yrs ago, she weighed 5lbs 2 oz.  She acted like she had been starved to death and her ribs protruded.  Sympathy and love led us to over feed her up to 12 plus pounds!.....In my defense, my husband was the main culprit.  He gave her potato chips....cake...whatever he was eating.  She started to have episodes of panting and coughing and I knew we had to do something.  Laying down the law to you know who and cutting back what I was feeding her............(I didn't know she only needs 78 -160 calories a day depending on her activity level.....she's a couch potato)  we have managed to get her down to 10.6 and two pounds on a little dog really shows.

Cataract surgery on my left eye is doing great.  I can see to drive without my glasses, but close up is still bad.  New glasses in a couple of weeks should take care of that and then back to sculpting, can't wait!  

My Etsy shop is keeping me fairly busy in the meantime, but it's so difficult to stay off the computer and rest my eyes.

I hope everyone is doing great, I will visit when my eyes are better.

Love and best wishes,

Dear Judy,
It is so nice to see you post once again. You have been in my thoughts.
I am so happy Pink is doing better with her weight. I am sure she feels much better also.

Good to know your Cataract surgery went well. Do you also need surgery on the right eye?
Yes, it is a good idea not to spend too much time on the computer for a while.. It will be great when you can get back to your sculpting... I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful creations.
My sister just had the same surgery, but was lucky enough to have the restore done also.. So when she has the other eye done she will have 20 20..

I must stop in and take a look at your Etsy shop.. I am so happy it is going so well for you.
Love and blessings, dear friend

It's so good to hear from you Penny! I'm anxiously awaiting my first blooms from my fairy lily and I think of you each time I check them. I had the surgery done on my right eye about 3 years ago, but the results were a little disappointing. I had laser surgery on that same eye a few years earlier and the cataract surgery seemed to amplify the macular crinkling from the laser. I am very pleased with the last proceedure! Much love dear friend.

Dear Judy, I am thrilled to know your surgery was a success! I too had eye surgery, and although I am still blind in my right eye, surgery saved me from inevitable total blindness without it. I also am so happy that you can get back to sculpting. I know how much joy it brings me, and Im sure you feel the same. Your beautiful works are always such a pleasure to see. Great job as well putting your little doggie on a diet. I had to giggle at celery! First time I have ever heard of a pup eating celery! Love and Blessings, Christel

Dear Christel, I had no idea about your eye, thank goodness your vision was saved in left eye. It amazes me that you still sculpt such wonderful pieces, gives me hope for continuing.
Yep Pinkie Pooh loves celery, she also loves lettuce. I think she must have been starved before she came to live with us. Its hard denying her food, but its for her own good. Love that little doggie to death! I'll try to post a picture of her soon.
