I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!

:)  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.  :)

    I so miss going to gem shows and venues like that. My health prevents me from doing anything like that anymore. But I sure remember those days when I did and I commiserate with you over the sore feet!

    I’ve visited Mongolian BBQ and the food is just plain good and fun! I hope you have a wonderful week.

    I thought of you as I read Nora Roberts’ “Shadow Spell” this weekend. This series is about Good Witches trying to save the world through the centuries in Ireland. They were using gems and stones to protect the heroes from the attacks of the villain. I found this very interesting given your thoughts on using gems and stones. I think that you would enjoy this really good book.

    So neat that you have the opportunity to actually get to see and touch the stones before buying them. I know this may sound weird but I truly believe that the stones and gems have different powers and may affect individuals differently.

    Linda, so glad to hear you had an enjoyable weekend. I can totally relate to your “foot discomfort”. After a day like yours that is my primary complaint. For the next day and a half I tend to shuffle around the house. My friends don’t understand my plight. I may have to try the stones deal.

    I love, love, love the Mongolian Grill. We need one here in Bangor. It’s great to have the choice to eat healthy. I think when we’re actually given a choice (like on a buffet) you actually DO choose better options. YUMMY!

    Hi Linda

    I’m curious about cabochons when used in jewlery. I’ve read it’s best to have stones/gems touching the skin to have the most benefits. But don’t cabochons, when used in jewlery pieces, not touch the skin because they have a solid backing? If I’m wrong about this, please correct me. Thank-you. ~~ Beverly S. :-)

    I adore gemstones and minerals. My favorite pieces are my green turquoise, black onyx, regular turquoise, fire opal, lapis lazuli, garnets, jade… you get the general idea. My favorite comment came from my son speaking of me and my jewelry to one of his friends once, “Haven’t you met my mom? Everything is big. Big ring, big bracelet, big necklace.” You can do that when you wear semi-precious stones and are an oversized woman who won’t fall over once you put on your jewelry! ;-)

    Linda it sounds like you & Wendy had a great time. It’s fun sharing time with your daughter. My daughter, Neeley & I enjoy shoppjng & just hangjng out. We will be going to a 28 mile garage sale. It’s called Antique Alley. I know after walking my feet will need to be massaged. Have a great week. Can’t wait to see the adventure of this week end. I know I will be reading.

    I love Mongolian BBQ which is very similar to your Mongolian Grill. Love your books glad you had a super day! You should check out Origami Owl lockets sound like something you might like. I sell them and they are fun to customize!

    I couldn’t get the angel thing to work and I would love to have angels around me. Any advice?

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend. I did too, several of my children got together with me for a meal, and one daughter stayed for the whole weekend and helped me do some cleaning and rearranged my closets/

    Sounds like you had a fun (and exhausting!) weekend. Mongolian Grill is one of my favorite places to eat too. I’m sure you were a tired, but happy camper at the end of the weekend.

    Have you ever visited the Tucson International Gem and Mineral show? I’ve been going for 4 years and always find something wonderful. If you decide to go next year, give me a call. I’ll show you the best venues.

    Sounds like a very exhausting but fun weekend. We all need to take more time to just stop and smell the flowers. Or realize that life is to short work isn’t everything and women need some down time to.

    Sound like you had a good time Sat. We had a Mongolian Grill here for awhile but I never got to eat there before they closed. It changed hands then it went down hill from there.
    Didn’t do too much over the weekend. Sat took mom to the store, then just rested. Sunday went over to mom’s house and started to do some cleaning. Mom is living with me now, so have to clean and throw away. Going to get a dumpster and start pitching. Mom is 91 and that house is full. Any volunteers to help? lol!
    Monday took mom to the lawyers and then fixed supper, I was asleep early.
    Did you buy some pretty gems?

    I’ve come to realize I have no life right now. Being a single mom, full time nursing student, and working part/full time, I tend to live through others experiences. I never knew there was such a thing as a gem show, or a Mongolian Grill, which I’m about to google. I think I need to travel some. Thank you for sharing your weekend. Mother/Daughter time is important. I’m envious. Have a wonderful week.

    Hello Linda:
    Glad to hear you had a fun and event filled weekend with your daughter!
    I am new to this messaging/blog thing so I don’t know much to say!
    I hope you enjoy your minerals and I will continue looking and buying more of your books!
    Have a good day!

    I bet the gem show was wonderful! I love to see all the colors and shapes. I think I would want to buy them all! I love to see the Geodes. They are such a beautiful mix of colors that is hidden until you break them open.

    It sounds like you had a glorious time with your daughter! I have never been to a gem show.It sounds very exciting and very interesting!I think it is so important to spend time together, especially this day in age.There are so many distractions with cell phones and i pads,notebooks and video games and they miss out on important family values.I feel that if we spend time with our children they will be more inclined to ask questions and talk to us when something in their lives goes wrong.Hopefully what we end up with is an honest,open relationship.I am so glad you had such a good time!

    Daughter time to treasure–how wonderful. Now I want to know what Moss Agate is and use it on my tired joints/feet/bones.
    Love your books and read every one. I’ve been a fan for many years.
