Feeling Blue

How are you guys doing today? I am doing much better. Now that the burden of holding in all that pent up emotion has subsided some, I can actually focus on what needs to be done. Once again, I can't thank you guys enough for your reaching out to me with your words of encouragement and support.

Managed to have a decent dinner which was a Garlic and Herb Chicken breast and Broccoli and rice.  I just love the convenience of the Green Giant Steamers. They are handy when you are trying to make a quick healthy meal.  I even got in a brief walk around the block after dinner.

As I mentioned the other day, we went shopping in downtown LG on Sunday and I bought a bracelet and earrings. Here are pictures of them as promised:
Turquoise and Carnelian bracelet

Blue Glass Earrings
The bracelet is made from Turquoise and Carnelian. I had never heard of Carnelian before. Apparently it is one of the oldest gemstones available. It was used in Roman times for jewelery as well as being used for seal rings for imprinting a seal on letters or important documents (hot wax does not stick to carnelian). It is also mentioned in the bible. Gotta love Google eh? Who knew? All I knew is that the colors caught my eye and I wanted it. I should have a jewelery fashion Friday! I have been making a diligent effort to accessorize more and would love your feedback so maybe I will do that. What do you think? It is an NSV for me to be able to buy bracelets because there was definitely a time when they did not fit my wrists. Until next time...


  1. Love that shot of the earring with the light coming through the glass! Very pretty color. And I hear you on the NSV with the bracelet - there were many, many years when I could not slip on a bracelet. Feels so "normal" to be able to do that now, right?!?

    Definitely do a jewelry fashion show!

  2. Katie, I'm sorry to hear what you're going through, I know it's tough! But you did what was right for you and with time you'll see it was the best decision and you'll be on your way to true happiness! :) Keep your chin up.

  3. Love the new purchases, little pick me ups help sometimes. Remember, take care of you. You're worth it!

  4. Hi Katie. Love the new jewelery! Yay you for buying yourself a little treat and celebrating the NSV!!! You certainly deserve it during this stressful time in your life. Take care!

  5. I'm so glad your blue is in relation to your new jewelry! I'm also very happy for you--you stood up for yourself and that's is WONDERFUL! Katie J, YOU ROCK!

  6. Yes you are a strong woman, glad the blue is your new jewelry. and your wrists are smaller whooo hooo. you go girl. I love jewelry, one can never have enough accessories. have a great weekend.

  7. LOVE that the blue is the jewels.

    and not you.



I'd love to know what's on your mind...
