Always Something Fun to do
I have had a most interesting week. To start with my son and I went to the place my daughter was working to take her out to lunch. I was her last day there as the job just did not work our. She drove 500 miles in 4 days and went thru a quart of oil, and was on the road for 2 hr. a day. The job did not pay enough to risk her life on interstate 35 and all the other minus. Anyway, We went to see her on her last say. What a fun place to be. It was a wholesale bead company. Well I just had to do a little shopping. We went to Risky’s for a hamburger and onion rings. I have never had such a burger it was huge, and the onion rings were huge as well. We had a lot of laughs and stuffed our faces. Since My husband did not want to go to the Stockyards, (That is where the bead company is located) we called him while we had lunch so he could say he had lunch with us.
In my unrestrained shopping I bought a grab bag of beads. I have been designing necklaces. I went to city hall with my husband and he was there longer than he had planed. It was hot in the truck so I walked up the path to be under an old oak tree. I looked down an discovered a host of tiny acorns. I gathered about 70 and put them in my pocket. The next day my husband drilled a tiny hole in them. I then dipped them in nail polish to give them a high shine. While at the bead company I had purchased a string of fake turquoise rock beads really small. I used them as the contrast bead. It turned out quite lovely.
I have spent the last 4 days on our patio watercoloring. I am determined to paint every day. I went to a friend house today to paint. We had lunch and a very leisurely day.
