Finally a NEW Listing!

I finally got some pictures taken of some of the beads I have had laying around here for weeks now; I even managed to get one set listed! :)

I had a decent time at my Granny's yesterday, but the drive wore me out (couldn't have had anything to do with only 4 hours of sleep the night before!) It is a bit frustrating to spend much time there though for several reasons. My grandpa was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years ago and has had a stroke as well, but for some reason my Granny still seems to believe there is nothing wrong with him and that he is "faking" and only does the things he does to irritate her. She on the other hand, is severely depressed but refuses to acknowledge it or be put on any medication for it. It all just makes me sad. As I said though, yesterday really went pretty well all things considered. She made a peanut butter pie for me (my fav!) and she is the ONLY one who knows how to make it right! We visited for hours and ate till we felt we would bust and then visited some more. I left home at 9am and got back a little after 7pm and it really did make for a very long day, but well worth the trip!

Well, off to edit more pics and maybe list something else in my Etsy store!
Oh, and here is a pic of the set I just listed!

Time for a trip

Well, tomorrow is my day off and a week or so ago my Granny called and invited me up to her house for a smallish family get together. My hubby has to work but Bobo and I will be making the 2 1/2 hour trek north tomorrow. It will be nice to see some of the family at least because I have to work on Thanksgiving and won't get to go (one of the many *joys* of being a nurse). I told them I would try to bring some sort of dessert to bring along so I made a batch of Buckeyes that I still need to go dip in chocolate! They are pretty tasty, if you like peanut butter especially! :) Click here for the recipe!
With any luck I will get around to taking some pictures of beads on Monday and get some new things listed, I've been slacking a bit...ok, a lot! ;)
