Uh, Yeah...April

I finished my April Photo365 at the beginning of May but I had a bicycle accident since then wherein I hurt myself, and worse, my friend who also went down with me. I broke my hand, which is an inconvenience. Also my right underarm needs attention I can no longer give it.

So many people are suffering.
I just heard a 41 year old friend who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has metastasized to her liver. Her daughters are 11 and 2. 

So I am feeling healthy and lucky to be sure.

I did break the fall with my hand and face and have some gnarly pictures to share soon.

Meanwhile, announcements have been sent and my girl graduates from high school early June. So many feelings, memories and thoughts. I am typing with one hand so

It must suffice to say how proud I am with the friendships she has formed. They will be important through out her life. Mine kept me going. I even had a bike wreck with one recently after which she said there is no one she would rather get road rash with.

Allie has that, thank God. Thank you God.

When my face was pre-gravel, I posted this April Favorites video.
God hates vanity I'm pretty sure...

The French Connection

From Canada flew in sweet Colette Copeland for a weekend of teaching at our dear Paper Crown here in Oklahoma City.
My daughter having just returned from an exchange program to France spent the morning with us working on her French.
CoCo was so so sweet to her. I melted.
Also Jackie made these, French donut holes, bluebirds and "C" cookies.

I would show you a picture of Jackie but instead there is this,
her thread...
and her freaking banner for her cottage project that actually had people living in it.
There was a cottage class, and birdie making.
Collete brought her wares. Such a loving restraint in her work...
We Oklahoma gals snatched them up without incident. (Sorry Beth, I guess you can give your Collete Original to whomever YOU actually choose.)
Jemellia is adorable in her sporty spicy haircut.
I spend so much time alone using texts, blogs and emails to keep in touch with people, I forget how much I enjoy the actual people.

Collete is set to return to Glitter Market this November. I don't think I will wait that long to spend time with the actual people. And that's called growth mon ami...
