What a day! Not bad, just hectic.
And here I am at last.
Last night at 10:30 (way past my bedtime), the time came to bid my visiting angels ‘thank you and farewell’. I began to miss the angels even before it was time for them to go. I have been missing them ever since.
Saturday was a big day–daughter Wendy and I attended a gem and mineral show at the Spokane Fairgrounds, and it was a feast for the eyes. We stayed for hours, and of course I bought stones, mostly cabochons to make necklaces–fabulously patterned jasper, pietersite, labradorite–along with a pair of agate bowls, a few single stones, as well. I acquired a selenite candle-holder, unbelievably lovely.
As many of you know, I buy a lot of stones on eBay and Etsy, but the gem show was delightful; there’s something to be said for being able to see and hold the various minerals.
By the time Wendy and I left the show, I was pooped, and my feet were aching like crazy. We were hungry, having skipped lunch because the food was all fattening, so we headed straight for the Mongolian Grill, one of our favorite places to eat. After selecting a bowl (they come in three sizes), we did the buffet thing, choosing various raw vegetables, thin slices of meat, etc. Next comes the fun part (actually eating is better, of course)–you get to watch while a cook tosses the mixture onto a huge grill and stir-fries the works in a matter of a minute or two. The result is a light and delicious meal.
Later, at home, I used my faithful moss agate to draw the pain out of my exhausted feet and tumbled into bed. I was asleep in no time.
Sunday was quiet. I puttered in the art room, took a nap, read a little.
And that was my weekend.
Remember that there’s a new contest beginning today; all you have to do to enter is comment.
Well, that’s the news from the Triple L. I’ll do my best to blog earlier tomorrow.
