Ugly day, yummie tummie

Wow, these past three days at work have been so busy.  I come home in the morning, feed the dogs, and then crash. But unfortunately, I haven't been sleeping well.  It is all my own fault.  I wanted to stop taking the Tylenol PM to help me sleep.  I have managed to not use it for 10 days, and each day my sleeping has gotten worse and worse.  So today, I had to admit to myself that if I want to have a good restful sleep I need to take the pills.  I think my legs are aching also from this lovely Ohio weather.  I'm really joking.  It has been the usual roller coaster weather temperatures jumping 20 to 40 degrees each day.  No wonder my joints ache all the time.

I'm getting things together for the class I'm teaching at 1 Stop this coming Saturday.  Just got back from Joanns where  I bought snaps.  I also got out an assortment of fabrics the students can use.  I thought that I really should have a few more fabric embellished cuffs done as samples to show what else can be done with this technique.  Not finished with the one yet, and I have a feeling I won't get that second one done.  I also desperately need to finish the instructions...almost done.  Just have to tweak and add pictures.

So instead of doing what I have to do, I've been playing with a 1/2 inch bracelet blank I picked up last time I was over at 1 Stop.  I posted it to Facebook last night & it is a winner.  I think it will be a nice little class for the Summer...and I've got people wanting to buy it off my wrist.  I might have to go into production mode & whip up about three or four of these.  Always helpful with a slushy fund especially since Bead Daze is only 22 days away.

Practicing with my iPhone.  Have I said how much I love this piece of hardware?  I do so love it & am learning more and more about it all the time.  It takes great pictures & I did a little experiment with the hand held camera/video.  Not bad for my first time.

Inside Yanni's
I have to say that nothing makes this girl happier than a dinner at her favorite Greek restaurant in Columbus Ohio.  We've been going to Yanni's forever, or at least since we moved up here 20+ years ago.  Tom the waiter even knows what we want & ask if we want the "usual".  Isn't it nice to go someplace that knows exactly what you want.  For us...we split the Greek sub with fries.  I love their lentil soup & took a picture of it, but sadly it was out of focus.  Next time I'll get that as it is delicious and so colorful with all those lentils, carrots, tomatoes, and celery.

Greek Sub at Yanni's
I've been getting into a ritual at night before I go to work.  First off is that the dogs split a hard boiled egg.  Oh they all love their eggie weggies (know what movie I got that from?) and to help with Fiona's insomnia, I now slip 1/2 a children's Benadryl in her piece of egg.  She's sleeping like a lamb now without any side effects.  She's happy...and WE are happy to get no distractions when WE want to sleep.
Getting my nightly kisses before I go to work.
