I didn't have it in me to post yesterday. How is it that vacation always makes one more tired?
"When's the flight?"
"But the machine just took our tickets."
She sees our baggage claim tickets have printed; she takes our bags, hands us our receipts, and shouts, "GO!"
We thought for sure we'd get held up going through security but there were only eight people in line. Which stops moving when we arrive. Because some little shit ass brat brought a knife with him. And for some reason, they have to stop xraying bags until a supervisor can look at it. (Because opening the bag is above the agent's pay grade, or what?) In the end, we had time to get food and perform necessary functions before we got on the plane. I don't recommend cutting it that close, but if you do, make sure you have a project with you! It will keep you calm.
Yesterday I made this bird's nest charm. I'm very pleased with how this came out. If I did it again, I'd use only three beads. I think it's a little easier to make a circle around three beads. This would be a nice charm for a mother; you could use pearls and gemstones the color of her little chicks' birthstones. I used a creamy pearl, a gold stone bead, an amethyst bead, and some kind of green bead because it's what I had hanging around.
