Learning Something New

Not just for sightseeing but to take a class in precious metal clay. (PMC)

We went to Sha Sha's bead spa
in the Jewelry Exchange building
Right in the center of San Diego.

We took a private class, just Sheena and I
We learned about PMC
how it is made and what we can make out of it. 
We learned specific techniques such as: 
How to carve our own texture design,
How to roll the clay, to what thickness, shaping our piece,
how to include a bail (so we can hang our pendant on a chain)
We learned how to set a stone, 
How to quickly dry our piece, then fire it, polish it! 
We even learned how to electro-plate 24ct gold on our silver pendant

Mine is the top one, Sheena's is second
For more info see the link below.

While our pieces were firing we took a walk around downtown.
Sheena shared with me many of the places Dale and her enjoy. 
And we found a brewery we know Dennis and Dale may want to try. 

 But most of all I enjoyed the one on one time with Sheena, doing something we both enjoy.

O YEAH! Across the street was the "BARE BACK GRILL" neither one of us was hungry, but we did stop in to check it out. Sheila, it had games that you could play while you wait for your meal, or just to sit back and enjoy a relaxing night on the town. Jenga at every table, two shuffle board tables, and many board games. It looked like a great place to hang out. Wish I had taken some pictures of that place.

A Lovely Dinner

We had an evening with Sheena's Family. Her mom served homemade lazanga  and it was delicious!

 Look who surprised us  all and drove in from Nevada!

Got Super Heros?

 We had a couple of Super Heros  drop by!

 Showing off their skills!

 Practicing their moves 
So, they can get the bad guys.

 Thor and Spider man.

 Or should I say...
Spider Girl!

Grandparents JOY! A little Willow.

 Look Who I got!!!
Willow Brooke
(spelled with an e)

 She is as light as a feather!
So tiny!
(6 lbs 10 oz)

 Today, she looks like her mother.
Though her head is shaped like her daddy.
She has her days and nights mixed up.
Little sleepy head, did not open her eyes.
Though Daddy tried to wake her up.

Is there anything more precious than New Parents?
(Well, maybe the new Baby)

Can't tell who she looks like yet!
I can actually see both parents in that precious face.

Muggy, Humid, ...miserable

 Every day clouds fill the air!
 The sky is beautiful!
 But will it actually rain?
Will we enjoy a summer shower?
 Here comes a dark, dark cloud, 
Will it drop its moisture on us?
 YES! Great big drops!
So refreshing! 
So enjoyable!
Then it's gone!
Leaving behind...
Muggy, Humid.....
Hope for better days

PIRATES on the Porch!

Where do you, Pirates think you're going?

"To the ships!" they answer.

So off they go, leaving the landlubbers behind. 

This is what they saw and experienced: 

And if you are interested in some great photos of the tall ships in action
