Snowing on the 2nd day of spring???

Hello again!  Hope everyone is enjoying their day.  I woke up this morning to what I thought was some light rain here in Northern, AZ.  Much to my surprise, when I looked out the window, we had over an inch of snow!!!  If this is a fun little joke from mother nature, i'm not laughing.  I jumped on my facebook, to see post after post, from friends and family in Illinois, describing a beautiful 70 degree spring day, filling my new feed.  HAHA--just a nice little reminder from the powers that be, saying "you are not in control, you do not get to decide to skip winter.  I make the rules."  OH WELL.  Being from Illinois, i'm prepared for crazy I will survive.  Here are a few pictures Kiley took while we were walking the dogs.  

On a higher note, something that made my cold, snowy day a little brighter, an Australian glass distribution company is using pictures of my art as examples of the color "Alien-Tech"  on their website.  I'm so flattered! They are using 2 different pictures, one of the lotus pendant I made Kiley for Christmas, and another of one of my 5 petal flower pendants with and implosion marble center, all made out of Alien tech rod.  Its one of my favorite Northstar colors, and I'm glad to have my art be used to represent such a beautiful color!

Also, sorry for the lack of an entry yesterday, my only excuse is, it was Sunday, my "relax" day.  I slept in, had a late breakfast, tried to get caught up on my ever-growing "to-do" list, and I got Kiley doing some work on the torch.  She has made a few pendants here and there, but this was her first day of "work".  I'm so proud Soon as we can hook her torch up she can work more often, since I'm a torch hog and never let her play ;)  took a quick pic of her pendants with my phone:
We ordered a little photo box and some other new camera equipment and should be getting it by the end of the month, so Kiley will be taking better quality pictures of her pendants, as well as all the new pendants I have been making, and we will be putting them up on our etsy A.S.A.P.  We are still patiently waiting for our first sale on the page.  We had to remove some items that were originally posted because we sold them, outside of etsy.  We get a lot of views, but no bites.  Hopefully soon we will get some business ;)

Oh yes, I also wanted to mention, we are active members in several different forums, that are useful to our lifestyle.  One of which is the RV Forum.  After we complete our stay at each RV park we stop at, I will try to do a little review here, to hopefully help our some fellow RV's.  So far, we have only stopped at a few RV parks, because we have been very lucky to have come across some wonderful people, with large yards, who have been able to let us stay with them. 
 Well folks, thats been my day, now time to go jump on the torch and do some work!

Much Love, JR and Kiley

The first day of Spring was so beautiful!!! Like you, we woke up the next day to snow and sleet. Today is the same way. I will be so happy when it gets nice enough to get my garden started!!!

spring is always sneaky--there always seems to be a few days of bad weather after a string of beautiful days...I think its how mother nature keeps us on our toes =) I, too, am eagerly awaiting the return of beautiful weather. Hopefully we won't be waiting much longer!
