I sold a necklace today and another person told me to hold 3 lanyards for her.  Another person ordered a necklace and bracelet, and yet another told me the shades of green she wanted me to use when I made her necklace, bracelet and earrings.  I only have a very few items made for the Craft show that will benefit the Lower Cape Fear Hospice which is on November 1.  I probably need to close my computer until after this event and just bead in all of my spare time.  NOT.  I do need to get busy tho.

Some people learn by their mistakes, mistakes others have made and some people just never learn.  They seem to always be in need of something, just waiting for a handout.  I have seen a few adults that are almost hopeless when it comes to thinking of the consequence of their actions.  Would it not be great if one could learn from textbooks commonsense like one learns math?   I just do not understand why folks can’t tell the difference between eating if I have a job and being hungry if I do not unless there is a handout.  I am just before ranting here so maybe I should close this post.

It has been chilly almost cold to me most all day.  The temp here has been in the low 50′s with rain or mist all day.  I usually am very hot but not this day.  I am chilly now, thinking seriously about switching the unit from a/c to heat.  Maybe if I cover my ears, I will be warm.  Time will tell.  I am not complaining, but my seasonal preference is spring.  I can look to the future, just 5 months and we should begin to see signs of spring.

Do you remember how I ranted and raved about the condition of lay-a-way last year.  Was promised that it would not be like that again this year.  Well, it is not like last year, it is worse.  Didn’t think that could happen but it has.  I only went upstairs one time today.  I will probably get in trouble, but all the packages that should go upstairs I just left on the floor in the work area.  I knew that if I walked up and down the stairs as much as needed then “arthri” would get upset and by the time I drove home I would hardly be able to walk.  Life goes on! .

Sometimes I think I look like a beached whale.  I am hungry most of the time.  I eat and then in no time I am hungry again, maybe if I ate the correct foods this would not happen.  I have got to do something about this excess weight but I am not sure that I want to travel the road paved by any diet pill.  I just need to count my calories, eat foods that are only good for me with an ocassional goody for good behavior and exercise.  Exercise is the lock and I do not have the get up and go to find the key.

CRAFT CLUB 10-17-08

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

Sorry this post is late but I have been very busy with beading ,as you will see.  The host of this club has been busy as well and did not post this week.  However, if you are interested in being a part of this club and showing us your crafts, visit for all the info you will need.  The best part about this club other than enjoying your craft is NO club dues.

As you can tell, I am not a photography major!

If you think any of these items would make a nice accessory for your wardrobe, leave me a comment including the picture number(s), and I will get back to you.

Have another but different lavendar necklace ready to string but I really need to get dressed for work first.

I am scheduled to work in lay-a-away today.  I have not worked in that department in several months.  I hope that I remember the correct procedure for all that is done concerning lay-a-ways.  If I don’t, maybe I could pretend that I am a computer and quickly install more computer memory, then have a quick refresher course and I would be good to go.   I know there will be several trips to make upstairs putting packages away, I sure hope that I do not fall when I am coming down them.  The concrete floor and my body would not get along well on impact.
