Eternal Rest

"Eternal Rest Grant Him O Lord..." I am shocked and saddened. I never knew he was ill, which I'm sure is the way he wanted it. It never seemed to slow him down, either. I wish I could be as brave with my Lupus... I will miss his acting, his voice, his presence. A great actor. He took his art seriously, but never took himself too seriously.

My prayers are with his wife and family... And to think I thought having shingles was the sad thing right now...

You left the world a better place Mr. Rickman.

Yes, I'm Still Alive...You Can't Get Rid of Me That Easy!!

Hello, all! Even though I've been way too quiet, I've still been here, lurking in the background. Now that I'm feeling more human and work has calmed down a bit, I can get back to the stuff I love.

I intend to participate in "Snupin Santa" this year. (I hate to think it's the last one, but...sniff...) In fact, I'm working on my piece. I don't want to end up sick again this year and unable to finish. This being said, anyone interested in beta'ing in the next month or so?

I also wanted to share some cute artwork I purchased at the Steampunk convention last weekend. (It was a blast, by the way...but I'll share that later! LOL!) It's not Steampunk art obviously, but still wonderful. Needless to say, these artists will probably be getting more patronage from me. One even includes two of my favorite things. Cats & Dragons! If we could only get the boys in there too it would be perfect! Also, I thought Logospilgrim would enjoy one too, since it has a rather suspensful /horror theme to it in a very low-key way.

The second one is entitled "Magnus & Loki: Allergy Season." I just adore them both!







They are just great. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I've got plenty more to share, but I'll save it for later!

HUGS!!

P.S. - If the photos don't show up, no one will be surprised, right? I mean, this is me, and my dismal formatting skills are legendary.

2013...I'm Glad It's Over...Here's to 2014!

Dearest Friends,

I've been out of the loop, so to speak, for about a month now. I was feeling so bad that I haven't even read the SnuSa that I was so looking forward to, much less managed to finish mine. I am very unhappy with myself. This fandom is important to me, and it's frustrating that my participation has been nil. Aurgh!

To be fair to me, however, I have had the flare to deal with, then the loss of my beloved Josephine, then my youngest daughter and son gave me a brand new puppy the Saturday before Christmas. She's a little black lab/golden retriever mix that I've named Zoe. (She's a delightful little monster and I love her to death...my son's boxer that lives with me is thrilled to have a new friend after Jojo passed, and the cats MIGHT forgive me soon! LOL!)

Then, on Christmas Day, my youngest daughter's sweet little dog, Chloe, passed away. She was fine when she went out to go potty in the morning, and Angel and her boyfriend found her dead a little while later. Looks like an unknown heart problem. They were down at his families place about four hours from here. Everyone is devastated. Sweet little Chloe was a delightful doggie, only about eight months old, and we all loved her. This had not been a good year for doggies...first her Sammie got out and got hit, then Jojo dies, then Chloe. I feel so, so bad for her.

Then, on the New Years Eve, with one day's warning, my oldest daughter and her boyfriend lost their apartment and moved in to my basement. Oh. Joy. I cannot tell you how THRILLED I am with this. I love my daughter, don't get me wrong, but I was enjoying having an "empty nest", and there are some things going on that I won't bore you all to tears with. Suffice it to say that this is a "Probationary" thing, and if things aren't the way I've been promised, well, changes WILL be made. Mommy doesn't need the stress. I feel bad she lost her job and his business is slow, but, unfortunately I know some of what led to the job loss and it was, alas, self-inflicted. Again. Still... Sigh.

So here's to 2014 being a fantastic New Year for us all. That's my belief and I'm sticking to it!

Hugs

A Rather Frustrating Time...
midlagedfangirl
I'm certainly feeling sorry for myself lately. I've been dealing with the worst Lupus flare I've had in quite some time. I thought, perhaps, I was starting to feel a bit better and might even get a couple of things done before Christmas.

Today, out of the blue and quite unexpected, my dog passed away. Well, it wasn't unexpected in that she was over 12 years old and a German Shepherd...but I certainly didn't expect it now. I thought I'd have my old girl for Christmas. My late husband got her for me when she was a puppy in 2001. She's been my Sweetheart Girl. I lost her "husband" Eugene, about two years ago. He was Luis' dog, and a year older than my Josephine.

Thanks for listening, my friends. I'll get over it, and will try not to let myself get to bogged down in a "pity party," but today, I'm going to sulk and sit in the recliner, watch "The Hobbit" and miss my baby girl.

Mommy will always love you, Jojo.

This test actually seem to take things into account like I would like to think the hat would. It was fun, and hey, I've always wondered if I would have been a Hugglepuff! LOL!

Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?


Needing a Beta

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone would have the time to Beta something for me? It's only four pages long and shouldn't take a lot of time. (I hope! )

If you can, let me know!
