Here we are at the start of another week

Hi Sharon! Thanks for the comment. I have a question for you (this is me, pretending that anyone who stumbles across my blog will ever return to it... ha ha ha!). I clicked on your name and I admit I was confused about which one was your blog. Is it the LEST street team blog? I admit to being a "street team" ignoramous. I can't figure out how to join the street teams. Which is just as well, though, considering I'm already stretched VERY thin (virtual speaking... in real life I'm anything BUT thin... but now that school has started I hope to join my kids in some post work/school physical activity.

I'm still absolutely NOT doing the glass thing right yet. "Glass thing" is putting a picture behind a piece of glass and turning it into a pendant. I've ruined about 10 glass pendants so far. Not giving up yet... just going to try other things. I'm stubborn. :-)

Aside from that, I did make some jewelry this weekend that I really like. I'm veering further away from the "easier" sales and closer to stuff that I enjoy making. Here are some examples:

I haven't listed any of this weekend's stuff yet, though, so I'll probably show you the links tomorrow.

This weekend was (or seemed) a bit funky... well, not Saturday, but Sunday... I didn't have to go anywhere, so I had the whole day to do whatever I wanted. I made it a mix between jewelry and house clearing. Maybe the "funky" feeling came from the sense of being overwhelmed when I think about or see how much stuff I have in the house versus how much "stuff" I want in my life. It's easy for me to throw a huge amount of stuff away and anything that's really too decent just to thow away, I set into a box for Goodwill. But the tough stuff is the "keep"... it adds up! And the "sell"... that takes time and until the time arrives it takes space. Blah!

Mon had her first practice with the new team. She had fun, but I wasn't there. She said everyone was nice to her. Unfortunately, she bunged up her finger a bit, but she SWEARS to me it will be better by Tuesday (their next practice)... heh.

BTW, here's a short video of the tryouts she did for this team. More interesting (IMO) if you have your volume on:

I'm excited about getting her new leg pads next month. I think (hope) she will finally appreciate how much faster she can move with lightweight pads. I think it's awesome, too, that Gabe is volunteering the money he made this summer to help pay for Mon's pads.

Gabe's team had their first game (informal game) on Saturday against San Jose. The very first shot on Gabe went in... ugh. Looked like a softie, but later he told us that it was a deflection off one of his defensemen. It was the only goal against the Jets for the rest of the game (Nando played the second half). The Jets won, 3-1.

Well, I'd better get on with my day now.
