Tuesday so far

I forget when I went to bed, but I don't think it was past 1:00 a.m.  I woke myself up at 6:00 a.m.  I went back to bed and tried to go back to sleep as soon as possible, but I couldn't get back to sleep.

I met A.J. at the Y at noon, and we got sushi and went to a costume shop.  A.J. wants to dress as Harry Potter.  She's got the robe for it, but didn't have a Gryffindor tie.  We didn't find much in the way of Harry Potter accessories at that costume shop.  They had a robe with a badge, and then they had another package with little round glasses frames and a wand.  A.J. also had the glasses, too, and we didn't get that package just for the wand.  But it was fun to look.

We stopped by the house.  The pineapple sage has lasted long enough to be starting to go by.  It never lasts that long.  The colchicum is going by, too, but it was nice while it lasted.  The poet's jasmine had two new flowers, and we smelled those.  That smells really good.

I drove A.J. up to the library near her.  Her sister B. met me there to take herself and A.J. to a hair appointment in a nearby salon.  I had been writing more dialogue for the story I'm working on.  I stayed a little while longer to do more, then headed out.  There was a traffic accident on the corner where I would turn onto the main road, so it took a while.  I got home and chatted with A.W.  She joined me in our collaboration on the story.

I went to jewelry-making class.  I fixed an old coral necklace for Mom.  It had been Nana A.'s, and on a string, but the string broke.  I put it on beading wire and put a barrel clasp on it.  The beads were of graduated sizes, but they were all irregular sizes.  I guesstimated.  I also learned how to properly make the bracelets that were like Alex and Ani bracelets.  I put the rest of the charms from an old charm bracelet on them.  I learned how to put loops in wire for dangling earrings that would move with you.  I learned everything that was demonstrated in a previous class.
