It's Friday

What can I say? It's Friday. N and A have a three day weekend. Well, N has a bit of a three day weekend. She is going to help T-man with a big job this weekend, and make herself a little bit of money. She has signed up to be a substitute teacher. She even got her ID card for the school district. N is home today, at least until her sweetie gets home. I'll be a brunette tomorrow. HAH!! I love it! The only color that never worked was blonde.

What is T-man doing today? He is skeet shooting with his new boss. I kid you not! And he is getting paid to do so. Is it any wonder he loves this new job?? Oh sure, they are watching a tank installation in Marble Falls, but afterwards? Skeet.

These are the earrings I made for A. She wore them yesterday, proudly I might add. Even her teachers complimented her on them. They are vintage black givre with the tiniest bit of white at the top. I put them on the same oxidized copper head pins and copper colored niobium wires. They are only 1 1/4 inches long. Just right for her 10-year old self! And they are much darker in person -- that flash is so bright!

I think I'll whip up some earrings this weekend to add to the Etsy store. According to Etsy statistics, shoppers like Monday, with Tuesday being a close second, around noon and then again around 9:00 p.m. my time. Those are traditionally the best selling times. Go figure. But I know when I'll be listing! I'll probably *gasp* bead a bit, also!

And so my beady friends, thus ends another week in my exciting life! Happy beading, and remember -- don't sweat the petty stuff, and pet the sweaty stuff!!

so why do the girls have a three day weekend? Columbus Day? Our district isn't observing CD, but is having Parent Community Day (parent/teacher conferences) on WEDNESDAY. Great a day off in the middle of the week!!

Columbus Day as far as I know. The calendar says "student holiday". Of course, N has the day off anyway since all of her classes are here. I don't have to do the parent/teacher conferece (which would have been on Monday) because I recently spoke to two of the teachers, and the only question I have can be answered via email! So I get both my girls home on the same day!

I think I'll make them clean house!

And lest I forget, for you kids who work for a living, a day off is a day off, regardless of where in the week if falls. It's the reason we got married on a Wednesday, that just happend to be LBJ day. No where else but Texas!
