whale watching

a day without focus

I find myself with absolutely no plan for the day. That's not quite true, I do plan on meeting with some friends this evening. Other than that, the day is going to unfold as it wants. I spent about an hour before breakfast reading in the shade outside, a few minutes of gratitude and appreciation for the life around me prior to the read. Now that I and the cats have been fed this beautiful blue sky, low humidity day spreads before me with nothing demanding to be done or even calling to me in a Sirens voice, "come, let's do this." Sometimes following the Sirens Sound leads to a rocky shore. :-) This is not to say I can't come up with a list of "things to do," but there's no inspirational message telling me how to best use this day. I'm just going to let it happen and maybe I'll share how that goes. You out there, have a good or better yet a great one.
whale watching

a day without focus (cont)

Well, I kept busy today. Managed to get the lawn cut and a bit of weeding/cultivating... and thennn decided to fabricate a ring that's been in my mental picture file for some time now.

A while ago (maybe 2 or 3 years) I came across a rhinestone tennis bracelet in a second hand "everything you can imagine" store. Wasn't too expensive and I knew I'd find lots of uses for the rhinestones. This is the first project to use one.

The stone has a nice flat facet on the top, which doesn't show up too well in the pic. Eh... so what.

The jewelry work too longer than expected. This is usually the case so it's now time for dinner then off to meet some friends. Hope you all had a good day too.
