A Bit of an Update

Oh how I wish that there were more hours in a day so that I could get everything completed or at least make a valiant attempt.  Trying to get jewelry made while caring for an elderly relative is no easy trick and a flare-up of my carpal tunnel problems only makes matters worse.  I did manage to get a little bit of time for myself and my husband and we took a nature walk.  We came across a juvenile king snake that was very shy.  As soon as it felt our vibrations on the boardwalk, it started to slither away but my husband did manage to snap one photo as it made a quick exit.


I am reassured when I come across such helpful, nonpoisonous snakes that really help our ecosystem.

With the dangerous weather conditions across so many states, I'm sending positive vibes to all those who may be in harm's way.  Stay alert!

    1. They're similar in appearance which trips up a lot of people. Just remember that the yellow/cream segments will touch the red segments on a coral snake and you'll stay safe. Interesting fact: King snakes are cannibals and especially love rattlesnakes which is great because the panhandle has so many pygmy rattlers!

      Oh, and my wrists are doing better. Thanks!
