just this and that

Got home about 2:30 this afternoon. My cat Helen usually spends the day on the couch with my husband, but since he had to go to The Big City for a health appointment today, I guess she was lonesome. I looked around for her and found her sitting in the windowseat in my room with Savannah. Ebony, however, was nowhere to be seen. I finally found him under my recliner.

I toddled on out to the kitchen to make salmon patties for dinner. I learned by watching the Food Network that they won't fall apart when you cook them if you let them set up in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or so.

When I went back into my room, All three cats were posing prettily on the window seat so I captured them for posterity. I know I'm prejudiced, but aren't they just three of the most gorgeous felines you've ever seen?
My furbabies. Yeah, I love 'em. Lots.

Back in the Saddle Again

Went to work for a couple of hours yesterday, just so I could get a feel for how it will be when I return on Monday.
Felt good to be back and it was nice to know I'd been missed.

Now that I'm able to sit for longer periods, I've been updating my etsy shop with a few things, like this pretty pink cross necklace. I'm hoping to draw some traffic in by twittering my new items. It's amazing how quickly people go to the links! I can sit and refresh the page for a couple minutes and watch the numbers rise. Now if folks would BUY instead of just clicking!

The medical bill tally - so far - is $17,000 and counting. Phew! I'm going to have to sell LOTS of handcrafted jewelry to pay that off, huh? Good thing I still have a day job. LOL

How I spent my 4th of July

Last year's 4th of July was my very first Arts and Crafts Show. My beading buddy, Keli and I did the Stars and Stripes Festival in Fernandina Beach. I was so excited when I made my first sale!
This year, of course, I was unable to participate in the 4th of July festivities. I'd planned on going to the one in St. Marys, Ga. because it draws a bigger crowd. Maybe next year.
I'm having a PIF sale on patriotic items at my etsy store today. Already sold two things.

Meanwhile, I spent part of the day working on a bracelet, using the nice tray table Daniel bought me. He had to go to three different stores but finally found one at Target.
It's perfect!

I let Daniel have the couch for a few hours today while I watched stuff on the computer as I lay upon my futon. Caught up with the CSI NY episode where Lindsay and Danny's baby is born. Then I watched Red Shoe Diaries on Hulu. Oh, I sure do love that David Duchovny!

Okay - enough chair time for me.
..back to the couch!
