Sunday and the living is easy...........

ok, I know that's not QUITE they way the song goes but it is the way my day has gone. I slept for over 10 hours last night. and got a VERY late start to the day. Which has kind of been par for the course all week. This stomach thing took more out of me than I thought, so I was slow moving all week. I have been at the worktable off an on, between laying down. I got a full box of stuff to photograph as evidenced above. I also made 12 pair of earrings not pictured. I also made all these lovely wearable shrine pendants. Not sure I will turn them into necklaces or just sell as pendants on Etsy. Need to figure that out ASAP.
It was a gorgeous day on Friday, and Rob and I took a quick trip over to Chinatown. I love going to my big herb store and chide myself for not doing it more often. I wanted to get some lotus seed paste mooncakes from Golden Gate Bakery but there was a HUGE line so I didn't. I can (and should) go next week and get myself some.
I also got my box of necklaces from the Round Robin to work on. OOOOHHH!!! they are all so beautiful! I'm still working on one but when it's finished I'll post all the photos, hopefully tomorrow!
