What a 4th of July weekend. I decided that we would replace the carpet with stained concrete. That was a huge undertaking. Taking up the carpet and moving the furniture was murder on the back and thighs. Have taken numerous pain pills to try and get back to normal. But the room is almost done. Will finish it this week.
We did go to watch the fireworks out at the lake. the weather was much better then last year. There was a slight breeze blowing, and the bugs seemed to be at a minimum. We took our cameras and tried to take lots of photos. Some were good, some were not. We did see something quite interesting. There was a tree at the butterfly garden that was covered in butterflies. Almost like they were mating and laying eggs. but it was so weird seeing all of them clustered together like that. Got a few good pictures of them, and trying to get the name of the butterfly so that I can look it up later. There were also some baby snakes at the pond and I got some good photos of them.
This coming weekend is Create-Away Cottage retreat. there are about 9 ladies going, and we will spend three days there. I have several projects that I am going to take. I need to find a good light to take with me. I have a Ott light but the durn thing hums so bad that it is annoying. So I am off to look for a good light and some fabrick for one of the projects. They are also bring back the massuse that was there last year. I signed up for 1 hour. That should really help my back feel better. I am going to spend time with my friend Carol, cause we never seem to be able to get together. I am so looking forward to that.
I am hoping to get a beadpunk necklace done this weekend as well. I have lots of stuff to use, just really need to sit down and work on it. I also hope to do some wire wrapping and get two rings done, and maybe some others also. I have a really neat black and white spiral necklace that really needs a nice wire-wrapped pendent on it.
I have taken to wearing my jewlery to work in hopes that someone will see it and ask where I got it. that way I can tell them that I make jewlery and maybe get a customer.
Well happy beading, and wait for the report from Create-Away cottage.
