Light at the end of the Tunnel

This has been the craziest month I can remember ever having. I've had lots of months with tons of work needing done etc. But nothing this fragmented and all over the map both personally and professionally. Don't have any idea why everything has converged but it has. Crazy. Would you like to hear the list? Probably not but I can't help but add it up for my own morbid curiosity.
(June 29 note- I'm not even going to add the last few days...I just don't have the heart.)
This month, THIS month!
3 deaths (3!) (mercifully none in our near family in case anyone wonders. But still.)
1 new Granddaughter birth!
1 911 call in the middle of the night/ Cougar screams (I thought it was a woman!)
1 big upset, (unrelated to calling 911)
1 cow being shot /slaughtered outside our back door (color me surprised when I heard the bullet!!),
2 Dear dear friends 50th bday celebrations, (fun at Diamond Lake!! & Got called to decorate for the other at the last minute- HOT LOOK though, I'm tellin ya- Parisian inspired)
Special prep for Gabe's 1st bday (seriously- Curious George- of course. Which, BTW- is impossible to find locally, flat out impossible.
30+ pieces Krylon concepted, sketched, sourced, executing,
3 classes set up/ San Diego (thank you Lisa Bebi!)
Concepting a 10 year Shop celebration for a shop I display in
last but certainly Not least!!
Italy Workshop stuff, working with the amazing Lisa Bebi again (!) Really fun things to think about. (& check out her "pimp my spleen" blog on my sidebar - which is a crack up! & Somerset Studios.)
A Photo shoot that just may send me to my grave. . . (more on that later- can't wait for you to see- but try to look past all the blood- hahahah)
It's life- ALL of it- and I'm trying to embrace it all. But, admittedly, I'm really looking forward to the "end of the month" and the deadlines being over.
thanks for listening.
Hugs all.

I found out some bad news about a sweet friend yesterday. I don't have the heart to post it on this list- somehow it sullies her plight, it feels like. I'm sad about the news. :(
I always feel your support and am so endeared to you!! Thank you so much!
Hugs Sheila,
Colette

I'm still sad for you and your friend. I'm here if you want to talk about it. There is peaceful time here in our little town, you know. We have a guest room and a bathroom too. I will pray for your friend even if I don't know what he/she is going through. Your blog looks great!

Hugs,
Sheil
