Okay, I found out what I need to be productive and bring my bead fairy back......very large doses of Prednisone.  I have been sick over a week now with bronchitis and it made my asthma kick in so the Dr. put me on Pred.  I think I've discussed my love/hate relationship with Prednisone before, so you'll have to forgive me if I repeat myself, I am old you know.  Anyhow, this time I am on Pred  60mg for 5 days.  O.M.G. I am a wizard!!  None of my joints hurt.  I can zip around the house like a well oiled machine.  I require little sleep  and I have ENERGY!!  It is heaven on earth, but also sad because it will be over so soon.

Meantime I am cleaning out closets and drawers and making beads.  My daughter, Sara, lives at a community called Day Spring and we are having our annual fund raiser in May.  It's a Ball and this year has a Kentucky Derby theme.  I am selling my beads in jewelry form at the event to raise money.  Here's a picture of a necklace I made yesterday for the Ball.  Now I have to go make some more beads while the Pred is still working :) If you are so inclined to support things online you might want to read about Day Spring.  Here is the link.  You can buy a ticket for the 15,000 raffle for just $10.00 and your chances of winning are a lot better than the lottery....just sayin'   Look for the second ticket down on the right-hand side of the opening page, click it, pay by credit card and you are IN to WIN...sorry, got carried away....I tell you, it's the Prednisone.  I can't help myself.  I am wired!....but if you do buy a ticket let me know, so when the winner is announced I will know if it's one of my people that won.  Now wouldn't that be cool???


  1. I feel with you, my daughter had to take cortisone too oftentimes. I wish you constant good health. And I'm looking forward seeing all your pretty beads ;0))

  2. Hi la mar,
    Thanks for visiting my blog , your sweet words about my beads, and your wishes for my health. I appreciate everything!

  3. I have a friend that needs to, periodically, go on Pred. and she says her house is never cleaner. She cranks up the tunes and dusts and vacuums like a maniac.
