Housework Schmousework!!

I'm still feeling pretty uninspired. The weather I think has got everyone down these days! I sure know it has affected me and I usually don't suffer from SAD, but damn... these cold gloomy days are getting to me!

That being said, it's supposed to be close to 80 degrees today and as I write this the sun is shining! We already have all of the windows open even if it is a little chilly yet! The cats are loving it, though!

I think I mentioned earlier that I actually sold some of the jewelry I made. This is one of the necklaces I sold:

And this is the necklace and earrings I sold.

The top necklace was made from beads that I bought a long time ago. The bottom necklace and bracelet were made from beads off of a bracelet that I bought at a garage sale last year. I love finding garage sale jewelry to make different things from. Beads can be pretty expensive at the craft store!

Went grocery shopping earlier this morning. I'm pretty hard pressed to get groceries for under $90 a week anymore. And it's just two of us! It's not like we eat steak every night either! I think we need to plant a garden (maybe) and raise our own animals for meat (NOT!) It's crazy!

I did get this cute little bottle of wine, though. It's about the size of a single pop bottle. I've never tasted Pinot Grigio so I may not even like it but I could not resist! Too cute!

Yesterday I was a little upset because I thought I left my iPod on the AATA bus at work! I could not find it anywhere and I could not get a hold of anyone in the business office of the AATA to check the lost and found. So started to drive there and then remembered that we had a meeting on Thursday and I locked my purse in my desk drawer and noticed that the iPod fell out into the drawer and I forgot to pick it up! I was relieved but mad at myself for being to scatter brained!! Rich says we don't have Alzheimer's we have slowheimers! We remember it just takes a while!!

Well, that's all I got for now. The house could use some cleaning but I think I'll take a walk instead. It's getting nicer and nicer out!

Have a great week!!

Your jewelry is beautiful! I used to make crafts all the time when I was working (years ago). It's funny now that I'm retired, I don't think about doing much that I don't have to. I think life just sometimes gets in the way and I lose perspective. :)

So glad your weather is better today. It's 90 here and I've got the air on for the first time. I dread the summer if this is any indication!

Hope you have a great week too, buddy!

Wow, Net, I had no idea you made jewelry. Your pieces were really pretty! I'm impressed.

Tom & I have slowheimer's too, so don't feel bad. :-)

I only did minimal housework last weekend too. Saturday, I was busy with a church event, and you said, it was too nice to work!

Have a nice week, SIL! Hugs!

Lovely jewelry, I admire folks who can make things, I mostly make a mess.

We have CRS around our house.

I hope you enjoyed every minute of your lovely weather.
