1. I previously talked about getting out my beading boxes from storage and dusting them off. Well, this past Sunday I decided to try something new while looking through my stash.
I really love how this beaded rivoli came out! I am definitely going to be trying more this coming weekend.
2. Due to human error *cough cough* I lost my place in my IT (by Stephen King) listening experience . . . as soon as I get my SD card back, I will search for my place again :) While I wait, I have started listening to THE RAPTURE, an earlier novel by Liz Jensen (of The Uninvited-fame).

I am really enjoying the story but I want to seriously slap some sense into the main character, Gabrielle Fox. She is paralyzed from the waist and it feels like every few minutes we have to listen to her inner-monologue about not being a woman because she cannot use her legs. It gets a bit tedious in the long run but I am trying to slog through as the premise of the story is fascinating. What would you do if you believed that someone could accurately predict disasters before they happen? What if they are predicting the end of the world . . .
3. This song is beautiful and such a wonderful message . . .
4. Life has been a runaway car this past week - I have hardly taken a breath . . . so I apologize for this short update this week. I will try to get my ducks in a row . . .
