I went to Bellevue Square to see if I could find anything. The only thing I found was some really great deals at Ann Taylor Loft and not one of the purchases was a swim suit. Oh well, there is always tomorrow.
Yummy, dinner! My mom and grandma make a mean pot roast, but alas, I don't have a dutch oven in which to cook mine. (Hint, hint, for those needing gift ideas) So, I cook mine in the crock pot and it is delicious. The meat is flavorful and falling apart and the leftovers are the best part. I use the leftovers for chimichanga's, beef curry or just a sandwich the next day.
Speaking of dinner, it's time to make the mashed potatoes and veggies.
Every year, my favorite bead store has a drop-in bracelet event to commemorate their anniversary. This past August was the event, but I went camping with my family in Eastern Washington hoping for camping with no rain. No luck, but that's for another day.
My sweet sister-in-law picked up the bracelet kit and instructions for me. She had left various notes about the construction of the bracelet which were very handy. Today, I finally finished working on the piece. It's not my favorite, but that's fine with me.
This was also a lesson in photographing jewelry. I played around with my camera and the various settings, but lighting was also an issue. If I had lots of extra cash, I would probably buy a better camera and all the gadgets, but I'm going to Hawaii in 14 days :)
