Saturday at my house...

... it's still a work day, but sort of a goofy work day. Anything goes. Whatever I feel like doing is OK with the boss. She can be a big meany sometimes, but she's usually pretty cool on Saturdays...

Today I had green tea and Cracker Jacks while I made beads - there's balance in there somewhere. And Rick picked some music for me, and then went in the house to write his blog and look for Oregon real estate. Good thing, because I really felt the need to sing to my beads, and I can only do that when I'm alone with them. I have a terrible singing voice, but beads don't seem to mind. So I was the new backup singer for The Eagles today.... I was great! My voice blends well with those boys... at least when I crank them up loud enough that I can't hear myself. It's good to sing while we work. It's a time honored tradition that's somehow gotten lost along the way. Sing, whistle, whatever... it all makes you breathe... that's always good.

The end result today is small beads with little gold butterfly wings inside. Real gold. Magic. Beautiful magic. And now, I'm off for the rest of the weekend. No computer tomorrow. See you Monday!
