A perfect day includes shopping for beads...

So life here in our little house bounces along as always. Yesterday was a most awesome and wonderful day. Roger had a doctors appointment in the morning. She told him she is very impressed with him and he is doing very well. So that was wonderful happy news.

From there we stopped at the publix and bought a large bowl of fruit for breakfast. It was so fresh they weren't even on the shelf yet. We went to the fruit lady and got the first bowl she made. It was absolutely delicious! Fruit for Breakfast is AWESOME.

Then we drove out to Gainesville. My wonderful hubby took me to two bead stores while we were out there. We spent a bit more then we intended but had so much fun! I picked up beads for several projects that I want to be working on. They were mostly size 8 seed beads with a couple of cabs I couldn't resist. I also bought a beautiful... BEAUTIFUL Czech glass button which will become the focal point of a new necklace. I also bought beads to match these gorgeous acrylic cameos that I have. I am very excited.

After the bead shopping we stopped at TCBY for a treat. I had forgotten just how wonderful they are. I also discovered yesterday that they make the best waffle cones I have ever tasted. Oh my goodness! I was so tempted to walk back up to the counter and ask them how much they wanted for just another cone. :grins:

After that we headed home. It was a wonderful fun day out but it was INCREDIBLY hot and we were happy to be home. We hopped on the computer together for about an hour and played some WoW until about 5:30. Then we headed over to Mom and Dads for dinner. Mom just got a new stove and she made the most delicious roast chicken. It was so tender and the meat just fell off the bone. It was quite a triumph.

After dinner we headed home and played a but more WoW. Then we headed off the the living room where Roger was finally able to get our surround sound working. We have all the right pieces now thankfully. :) And I started beading while we watched a film. For our first movie with the surround sound we chose Independence Day. I really like that movie. It was very fun with the new sound system and we're excited to try Jurassic Park next.

Well thats pretty much it. That was yesterday. Today I am hard at work trying to finish that beading project I started yesterday. It is for my nieces prom which is TOMORROW... UGH! But I asked them ages ago to let me know what color she was wearing for the prom and when it was. The info was finally givem to me YESTERDAY... Good grief! Well here I go back to work. :)

Oh, edited to add pictures of the beady goodness peppered throughout the post.

He spoils me so! :grins: It was a fantastic day. Bead goodies make any day better :D

I just ordered some Czech buttons that will go really well with the coral cab. I was really inspired by one of vampi's pieces www.vampsart.com and She put coral and a Czech button together also. I'm thinking of trying a bracelet that way :D
