Wave to the Economy

Are things as fucked as they seem? Because every time I turn on the television I feel as if, beneath their shiny appearance, anchors are ready to dive under their desks and kiss their pensions goodbye. And how about that economic bailout? Makes me want to start knitting sweaters and keep canned food on hand for the impending depression. Too bad I never could knit a sweater...

Speaking of crafts, I have been beading. I'm hoping for Bits of Maybe to go live in October. I'll keep this space posted. Here is some jewelry I worked on recently.

Meredith bracelet

Pippa ring

Junebug necklace

Okay, and now this is the part where I would share some food pictures...if I had any. Those haven't been transferred from my camera yet, unfortunately. Truthfully I haven't cooked anything new in a while. I'm going to flip through some cookbooks and see if I can't get inspired before my grocery run tomorrow.

I think that's all I have to fill you up on. I'll try posting more often now that things are back to normal.

Gizmo Has Been Sick

My Pomeranian has an auto-immune disease. He's a member of the family so we spared no expense and are now $775 poorer than we were a few days ago. That's absolutely fine...although it certainly presents a challenge for me at the supermarket. So I'm going to be stringent about our budget and posting my totals and receipts here. Let's hope I can keep it up.

The good news is, of course, that Gizmo is doing much much better and we're hoping he pulls through this a happy pup. Send good vibes.
