Today, I rewarded myself with a trip to the beadshop. Spent a little more than I had intended, but that's alright. I bought myself a little loom, needles, thread and of course a bunch of seed beads. I think I managed to get a small selection from every color grouping. Now, I just have to figure out how to use the loom. Oh, yeah, I bought a container to keep the vials of seed beads in too.
Went to dinner at the Outback with D. Yummy. We talked and got caught up. We haven't spent much time together lately because of schedules. I discovered what a small world this can be. I talked about meeting someone for coffee in the near future...someone from a mailing list I belong to. Turns out, D knows him...rather intimately, it seems. I found that rather amusing.
I have enough money for the real estate training. I talked it over with D, and I'm going to go ahead and do it. I have to call the guy back on Monday, and set up a time to meet and get things finalized.
I'm excited. My mom showed me what she's making me for my birthday. She found a little silver Goddess charm. She was going to put it on leather cording, but found the beads didn't fit that, so she offered me a choice. I like the beads though. She said she thought they were Amber. I can't wait until its finished. Oh yeah, I had to look up what amber meant magically.... its protection and thwarts negativity. How appropriate is that? I love it.
