Things that are awesome

Things that are awesome.  
Or, at least I think they're awesome right at the moment.  I'm kinda fickle...

~ Loving on handmade beads from my friends Sue & Donna in great shades of orange and pink and blue.
~ Working with beads and has been a long time since I got down to business at the bead table.
~ Sleeping in when it's raining on a Sunday morning.
~ Realizing that the pink on my toes matches the pink of my bathroom rug.
~Taking fun pictures with Hipstamatic's "random" setup because you never know how the shot is going to come out.
~ Pulling out some pearls that came from my last trip to Hawaii and fondling their richness before finally using them in a project.
~ Eating no-bake peanut butter cookies from Sheetz that are just like the ones we made in middle school home ec class.
~ Taking a two hour nap on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
~ Feeling skinny after taking a 14 mile ride on the recumbent bike.
~ Playing sudoku while taking a 14 mile ride on the recumbent bike.
~ Being pain free for 10 minutes after an hour on the recumbent bike.
~ Laughing tremendously across the lunch table with a good friend about ridiculous things like capuchins and crimping irons.
~ Making up the bed with freshly laundered sheets.
~ Organizing a bunch of new bras in various shades of pretty pink and melon and salmon and sexy.
~ Savoring a banana pudding milkshake with whipped cream and a cherry from Chik-fil-a; okay, actually savoring a few of them, not just one.
~ Getting Frankie kitty up close enough for some snuggling since it has taken five years for him to get comfortable with me.
~ Figuring out how to play poker with friends and realizing that I can't count; did you know you need all the numbers in a row for a straight?
~ Reliving high school memories and relationships with new album updates in my iTunes repertoire...Van Halen, Ozzy, Tesla, get the drift.
~ Finally getting an appointment with a doctor who might be able to help me get some back pain relief; it's not for a couple of weeks, but it's still scheduled.
~ Watching Modern Family.  This week's episode was flipping hilarious.
~ Discovering Ellen and laughing out loud while looking at Sophia Grace and Rosie over and over.
~ Finishing out the weekend with a Sonic slushie.
~ Life is good.  :)


  1. Woah, Jen! Those are fabulouso!!! I love love them!

  2. Beads = gorgeous! But where's the picture of the matching toes?

  3. It all sounds awesome!!!!!! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love those beads! And I love your list -- much needed today! I really do hope they can help your back -- can you get some Lidocaine patches in the meantime or do those work for you at all? I have those and they sometimes dull it down to manageable.

  5. I LOVE those beads as well!!! Thanks for sharing the beautiful bracelets that you made from them. They totally made me smile! These beads SCREAM "Springtime" and that is my favorite time of year! Some of my favorite things are on your list as well so that makes me love your blog even more!

  6. Those are all good things. Thanks for showing me that I need to take the time to savor every day moments. Enjoy the day.

  7. Cool bracelets! Love your post too! Sounds like you had a great weekend. Hope you get some pain relief soon! I know everyone has a suggestion, but a chiropractor really helped me with chronic pain.


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
