What I’ve Been Up To….

Howdy everyone.

I have been very busy (and poor Barnum has been very bored), working on a project that is close to my heart. It’s even is relevant to my theme of Lyme and MCS awareness posts for the month of May, because it’s about a friend with Lyme and MCS!

In the past week or so, I created (okay, I had some help) an entire blog!

No, not just a post, a blog. And it has nothing to do with dogs,* if you can believe it!

But it does have to do with me finding real pleasure in being able to do something worthwhile for a friend, for finding that there are still challenging tasks I can do from bed, and realizing that there are still good people in the world. And, for once, to feel like I can do something when a friend is struggling.

It’s also been nourishing to connect to other people who create beauty (whether with a camera, bits of metal and beads, fabric, or words).

To learn more about it, please visit my other AfterGadget blog.

This is the direct link to the post about what I’ve been working on and why it means so much to me.

Thanks so much for your support! Please spread the word (blog, tweet, post, forward, “like,” share on FaceBook, etc.)!

More another time about Barnum, birds, squirrels, and how to tick-check your dog!

-Sharon, the muse of Gadget, and Barnum (the very patient SDiT)

*Alright, it has a little to do with dogs. L-Squared of Dog’s Eye View donated some lovely notecards of her Guide Dog, Willow, and there’s also something about dog training consultation….

    Thanks for asking!

    Hahaha… you can’t escape the dogs! I blogged about it this morning to help spread the word. I hope the auction does well.

    Thank you so much! Someone has already bid on them, so your efforts are working! I really appreciate it!

    I wish I had known about this auction!

    If you’re up for it, I can still donate something: a Tarot reading, Celtic Cross spread. It can be done over either AIM or Windows Messenger. Takes about 1/2 hour, should retail for $25. I can write a longer description of it and take a picture of some of my tarot cards for an image, if you’re interested.

    Oh, I suppose I could also do it on Skype if people really want to hear my voice, heh.

    Thank you so much, Kali, for your offer! It is too late to include anything new in this auction, but we are collecting donations for the next one, which will be for another “Feisty Sister” who is in need of some help. (Though I will probably not be as involved in it, depending on whom it’s for.) If it’s OK with you, I’ll put your name down for getting in touch with you when we’re working on the next one. That would be terrific. It’s very generous of you.
    Meanwhile, the most helpful thing you or anyone can do is to spread the word, get more people perusing the site!
    Thank you, you are such a sweetie. Hugs to Hudson.

    Sure, that’s fine with me. I’m hoping to get a post up about my rheumy apt today, and I’ll add a link to the auction if I get a post up and my brain isn’t too scrambled to remember.

    That’d be so awesome if you link to the auction! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I was actually going to ask you and my other blogging buddies if you’d include a brief note and l ink in your posts. 😀
    My sistah.
