The ex-necklace

Cutting apart the necklace and saving the teensy beads was a lot harder than making the necklace in the first place. But I got it done. I'm sure it was the right decision. I started the new one, but decided I needed a few more green beads to complete it, so I will go shopping at Sparks today and work on it tonight.

Our houseguest left this morning, and things are back to normal. Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys are playing at a club in Somerville tonight, but I have decided not to go, since the cover is $14 and the music doesn't start till nine. George has an airplane club meeting and wouldn't be able to go, so that would mean I would go alone. I'm just not ready to pay $14 to listen to 45 minutes worth of music before breaktime. It is too late a night for me. I like to be fully awake in the morning when I go to work. Maybe I'm a Cajun coward. We will be going to Lousisana for a week in September to the Festival Acadien, and hear lots of great music. The dancefloor at this club in town is way too small to move, and people just jump around without hardly trying at all to do Cajun dancing. So, I'm going to stay home and work on necklaces and get my sleep.

We are having a beautiful week of sunny warm weather and only a few passing showers. Just enough to water the new plants we planted outside after work yesterday. The "snapdoodles" are in, and we just have to get the tomato plants in tonight. Then I start working on the window boxes with the purple and white petunias and pink geraniums.

Have a great day!
