Sunday Afternoon

Hi there!

We had an early morning rainstorm today that was cold and nasty, but it blew away the humidity and the result was a perfect summer day!

I sat out on the patio after the rain storm passed and beaded while my hound dog snoozed. The flowers opened up and the clouds moved off. It turned out to be a beautiful day.

The birds were singing, the breeze was cool and gentle, the sun warm and pleasant.

It reminded me of an old song by the Moody Blues: (Substitute Sunday for Tuesday)

Tuesday, afternoon,
I’m just beginning to see,
Now I’m on my way,
It doesn’t matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near,
I’ve got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh.

I’m looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying thru the fairy-land of love,
If you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon.
Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, afternoon,
I’m just beginning to see,
Now I’m on my way,
It doesn’t matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near,
I’ve got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh.

Remember that pendant I was making at the beading brunch? There were two more of these pretty agates left to complete.

I finished one of them today. The stone was not symetrical in it’s cut, and as a result, it was really hard to capture in beads!

 I had a lot of trouble getting the beads to fit right and stay tight!

 

This one still needs to be embellished, and I also plan to make the rectangular one into a bracelet.

But, since it is getting late I guess I will have to save those tasks for another day!
