  • It's a shame that phone no longer come with letters on them.  Remember back in the days when you could give a word standing for a telephone number.  I know that a few companies still do this such as 1-800-COMCAST.  But with cell phones, one has NO idea what the letters stand for.

  • This is Rusty.  He's the new member of our family and very much a Daddy's dog.  I picked him up from the Humane Society and he has been a wonderful fit into our family.
  • I signed back up for the Year of Jewelry Project on Facebook.  Hopefully I will be able to keep up better then I did last year.
  • My job is in total flux.  I have been on a special project since January of 2012.  Well it is ending on Dec 31st and while I know what I will be doing afterwards, I have NO idea how much I will be getting paid.

  •  This is one of the pieces that I designed as gifts.  This one was for Trish who is notoriously hard on jewelry.  I am crossing my fingers that it will hold up.

  • This next one is a purse fob made my Miss Erin from Treasures Found.  She is a wonderful person and has a blog that I do my best to keep up on.  This fob was something that I won in a contest that she ran.  I just got an Iphone and I really need to master taking pictures with it.  Apparently this one was taken using too few pixels to enlarge it.  To see a better picture, click here.
  • We went out and saw Smaug yesterday.  It was a great movie but I didn't know that they ended up splitting that one book into three movies.  I was rather irritated.  I am not sure how they managed to handle making only three movies for the other three books and yet want to divide this one book into three movies.
  • I am really planning on keeping up better with my blog this next year.  I have my word for next year all figured out and I will let you know about that later.

  1. Your blog name is perfect for this post. I like it though. I often want to just ramble with my random thoughts.
    First off, I didn't sign back up for the year of jewelry project as I failed miserably last year and figured I'd leave the space open for someone else this year. I just roped myself into too much stuff last year. I want a little more freedom this year (and less guilt!)

    Secondly, the whole Hobbit being split into three movies irritates me to NO END. None of my friends have a problem with it and can't seem to understand why I do. When I was a kid, I LOVED The Hobbit and have been waiting forever (since the LOTR movies were released) for it to get some attention on the big screen. The fact that they split one book into three movies is insane. They had to add so much other-story to it that it's just not the same. Don't get me wrong. . .I'm loving the movies, I just wish they could have figured out a way to tell JUST the story of The Hobbit in a single film. This stretching it out severs my patience. ;)

    1. My husband also was baffled when I started ranting out it being split up into three movies. I swear when I go in to watch the third that I will now be expecting yet another part.

  2. The Hobbit thing set my teeth on edge when I heard Jackson split it and added more unnecessary love interests.

    Although, the dude who plays Fili almost makes up for it. :)

    1. I have to agree with you there. He is definitely eye candy.

  3. LOL Love it! Stream of consciousness blogging...I could get into that. Your cute new doggie is indeed, very cute...funny that he's a Daddy's boy! Most doggies know who's the boss in the family...and it isn't Daddy LOL!
    Yikes re the job! Keeping my fingers crossed for you...
    Congrats on the purse fob! I love Erin's stuff.
    Happy New Year!
