Butterfly Cocoon

With all this time that I've been spending at home, I've been doing a lot of beading. Ava asked me to bead her a butterfly, so after spending some time looking around for something very special for her, I found just the butterfly that I wanted. It took me only less than a week to bead, and here are some pics of it.

I mailed it out to her yesterday. Can't wait to hear from her after she receives it!

My Rainbow

I stumbled upon a website where you can take a quiz to find the colors of your personal rainbow. Mine's kind of dark...

Your rainbow is intensely shaded white, gray, and black.

What is says about you: You are a powerful person. You appreciate quiet moments. People depend on you to make them feel secure. You depend on modern technology and may feel uncomfortable without it.

I miss AVA!

I can't believe how much I miss Ava. She called me up tonight, and while I was talking to her tears started pouring down my face. I know being there is the best thing for her, but I can't stand not seeing her.

I guess I will start another CARE package for her. Sending them makes me feel better for some reason. Maybe because then I feel like part of me is with her. She wants me to bead her a butterfly, so I am trying to make a butterfly hair clip and earrings for her.

Since I'm not working right now, I'm learning how to live on very little money. By the time I go back to work I'll be so good at it that I'll be able to save up every spare penny (after I pay off my back bills) so that I can take a trip to Seattle and see my little mija. I can't wait until I can see her again, but I'm afraid it's going to be a while. Thank goodness for phones and mail in the meantime.
