Granite in the wall?


As we continue on in our renovations we decided to take the basement stairs down and remake them straight instead of with a turn.

We had to go through the concrete of the original house foundation and found it was packed with rocks! This made it very difficult to do so my husband had to rent a jack hammer!

My husband also finished taking down another spot since he had it already and that’s when I noticed a large piece set aside, he said he found it in the wall and it was granite!!!

It still has some brick stuck to it but I can only imagine how using granite would be cheap? I can see how the rocks would be, any market out there for rocks hundreds of years old!! Lol

Next we will rebuild these stairs to go straight down, then the second story stairs can be done the same way.

It’s such a slow process but it is coming along.

Adult scoliosis


Years! I’m talking YEARS! I have dealt with a unbalance in my hips. I have had tests, and more testa but they never said anything about a curve in my back?? My dr confirmed it with old X-rays, old X-rays!

It started when I tried to lay on my back on my yoga mat, I put my knees up and my feet flat and it felt like I had a rock under my pelvic bone. It hurt like crazy and it was slightly on the left. After I got up it hurt so bad for the rest of that day.

So now it’s physical therapy for me, but it may help so we will see.

I don’t know anyone with scoliosis, how about you?

Cross for teenage boy?


My best friends son wanted me to make him a cross with his birthstone in it for him. I must admit I had a hard time deciding what to make for a boy about to be a teenager.

I started to just play with my wire at first, most of these are lopsided but I was just thinking. Then I decided to go a different way and came up with the cross I gave him. He likes it so that’s all that matters really!
