Ok, really. I need to get my butt in gear. We have access to the apartment in less than a week, and from what you can tell, my house is NOT ready for the move. I am trying to keep things as normal as possible for Axel and our routine, but when I decided to sit down for a beading project last night, the procrastination appeared to be out of control.
Can you blame me? Nana's birthday is coming up, she turns 49 AGAIN! Lucky girl. So, I had to think of something worthy. In my private stash, I had been hoarding a few picture charms (the add your own type of deal). Well, for lack of better things to do (like pack), I dug them out from possibly the only bins that were ready to go.
Adding a charm here, a bead there, I created what I think is a LOVELY little neck piece.
Worth mentioning here...The plant featured in a blog post nearly a year ago (the plant I refer to as my "plant, dog, kid experiment plant")?! I think I killed it. After a long winter indoors, the plant is nearly deprived of life and as soon as I can, I slip it outside into the sun. Well, a little too early this year, forgot it out over night, it froze. In a desperate attempt to "buy" my way out of it, I bought it a larger pot, new potting soil, plant food and have spent hours doting on it. I'll keep you posted. Jade plants don't particularly like 30 degree overnight weather!
WARNING. Speaking of the weather, it hit 70 degrees in MInnesota today. This can only mean 1 thing. HURRY and get your emergency candy stash out of your car. It could be that I'm the only one who keeps a stash there, but sometimes all you need is a little escape, a drive alone and a nice variety of sweets. Not realizing the temperature, I reached for a handful of deliciousness today and it was a little soft. So, closet candy fiends, you've been warned! Nothing worse that 10 bucks worth of candy melted into goo beneath your car seat.
Ok, enough of this nonsense. Back home to get something DONE!!!
