I said yesterday I wasn’t going to write as much today. Well, I followed through…only worked on the revision of one short story.

Not that I got a lot of cleaning done either — though I did run some errands, and I am ABOUT to go and clean up the MESS I made in the office today when I accidentally overbalanced my bead box as I was working on tweaking that piece of jewelry that needed work.

That could be a small problem or a large one, right? Hang on, I’ll show you–

I have two boxes o’ parts. This one:

First box o' stuff

which was not the one that spilled…being that there is no where for it to fall back to.

And this one:

Box o' stuff 2

which has all the beads in it. And made a stupendous mess. Especially as hard as it was to sort all those things in the first place.

Now, I have this to contend with:

spilled beads

and that’s only the ones you can see. There are more on the floor under that box…I just know it.

At least the piece came out nicely:


I was changing out that bead when I dropped the tear-shaped piece, and reaching for it, I hit the box o’ stuff. I am rearranging my office to make a safe space to work…or giving up and putting it back in the Studio. Where I guess it should be technically anyway…but there’s no TV in there. 😉

And I went and got the ingredients I was missing to make another Breakfast Souffle. This time I am trying Honey Wheat bread and putting bacon and broccoli in half of it. I am trying the set overnight version this time, since I got a late start. My eggs didn’t blend with the milk as well as last time either, so I have my fingers crossed it will all work out okay.


Today I cleaned ― not really anything…but I’m about to…

Today I weighed ― 185.9 — WAY too far over on calories yesterday

Today I wrote/revised ― one short story

    Nice earring 🙂 Beads are tricky. I was working with a client yesterday, when her bead container came apart. Fortunately, it was already in another container, but yeesh! I think I like the individual snap lid ones, but then again, what happens when you try to pry that sucker open – kaboosh! 🙂

    • It’s actually a pendant drop. She’s going to use it in a headdress. 🙂

      Beads are tricksy suckers, and it is almost impossible to find one container that works for all of them…
