Saturday Sleep!

Ok, we slept until 8:00 this morning, that is unheard of in this house, but with the new mattress, a sealy postrupedic plush pillowtop, it was easy!
Got up the coffee had been on for 2 hours and I had to make a fresh pot, but man, was it worth it. We took the novafoam costco mattress back to costco and got our money back.
Will post some special pictures later of stuff!

Thursday thoughts!

My thoughts are with the friends in california, I hope everyone makes it out of this fire season all together!
Remember, we may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
We can regroup, rebuild, and rejoice.
Time heals all wounds.
Think positive and be happy for another day to try again.
What does not kill us makes us stronger....I can only hope.

My new bed arrives friday so by thursday I should be well on my way to zombieland just in time for Halloween....I wish I could crawl into the video and curl up on a nice sandy beach under the warm sun...and sleep.....

Two for Tuesday!

Here are two of my latest projects:
This is a peace sign with copper plate on the back, it was from my rivet class I took, the pieces swing seperate, it is way cool! I am packaging it up for a birthday gift!

This is from the wire wrap class, I finished everything so it is a complete set, necklace, bracelet, and earrings! I think I want to call it Carnivale from the series we use to watch!

Music Monday!

I am one of the lucky ones to have seen Peter Gabriel's Secret World Concert, he uses lots of props and elaborate set ups in his concerts, a great showman! His voice is unique and powerful, I love his you get his Come Talk To Me song and the way he performed it in concert...

Thursday thoughts...

I have always liked thursday, it is the end of the week but not as hectic as friday. Friday you have to get all your work done so you can start enjoying the weekend so it gets a little scrambly, but thursday is nice and peaceful, the calm before the storm.
So I have decided that on thursday's I will post soemthing serene and peaceful....
I was talking quotes with a friend who loves them as much as I do....and so thursday you will find a quote on my blog or something thoughtful someone has done...

Welcome to my Thursday:
People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.
~Mother Theresa~

Get Creative...

I love this is called Lovely Layers. (click on picture to see it close up) It is a wire wrapping class because each component has to be wire wrapped and added to the chain. Did I say I love this necklace! I am working hard to finish it but I do not work well outside the box and you have to just be willy nilly with this one and just add randomly....uh, this does not compute well in my "little pre orginized all my little ducks in a row brain" so I am struggling, but I hope there is no right or wrong with this. I think as long as I love it, it will be ok.
The boys are at the race track practicing for saturday race night so the ipod is on and the coffee is brewing, Toby is sleeping at my feet and I am getting creative!

Hey, we are home from Laughlin, we had fun meeting up with everyone, four couples went, Hi Diane and Gary, Hi Deb and Leonard, Hi Colleen and Greg! Hope everyone got home safe and sound!
We stayed at the Aquarious (use to be flamingo). I just can't understand Laughlin not trying to keep up appearances. It is getting really run down and old. It could be a really nice place with the river running by, but they just keeping running it into the ground, come on Laughlin get some remodling done!
Anyway, the concert was nice and casual, the chairs were uncomfortable but it was a very small venue, she came out in jeans and a t-shirt and sang some old favorites and some new stuff. All in all we had a great time...Oh and Debbie, Colleen and I went to a Cornfest...Oh what a time we had at the cornfest....hahahahaha!!!!! But those secrets are safe with me!! hee-hee!
