Ramblings




  • I know that a lot of people are concerned about the bees and the fact that they are disappearing at an alarming rate.  I share their concern even though I don't really care for bees because I am allergic to them.  Still I don't mind having them as neighbors.  Lately however I have been dealing with them as roommates as some carpenter bees have invaded my bedroom!  We are having a war with them trying to convince them to pull up stakes and choose another home.  Thank goodness they don't seem to be aggressive.
  • Last Saturday I was to get together with some ladies from my Red Hatter chapter, have some lunch and go to the zoo.  Great plan except the weather decided to be too hot.  I ended up joining them for lunch and then headed home to die in the heat.  Oh and wage the war against the bees.
  • That gorgeous artwork is from a mural painted on the side of the Antique Sandwich Factory where I met everyone for lunch.  I highly recommend this shop to any of the locals. They have wonderful quiches and sandwiches.
 
  • I have found that as I get older, I am happier with my body. I used to get so upset about the fact that though I am top heavy, I don't really have anything behind to counter balance. Now I am just happy about the fact that I can get away with going bra less. I haven't gained much weight even though I don't have the discipline to watch my diet or exercise. Heck, now I am happy that for the most part my body still works. 
  • I wish that I was someone that was good with lists. I find that as I am getting older, I tend to forget things.  I try to remember to add it to lists on my phone but then I forget to check it. And who decided that 9 am is a good time for a reminder? 
  • I received my subscription for Bargain Bead Box. It's that dragonfly gorgeous. And a lot of cubes. That's not a shape that I tend to work with so I have a bit of a challenge as I want to use at least some of all of beads. 
 
  • Managed to use some of them including that gorgeous focal. Hoping to use more tomorrow and I will have to show you the pics next week.
