Water for Elephants, the book report

I was out of town and dangerously near the end of the book I had brought, so a quick trip to the mega-mart drug store found me leaving with a new book.  Water for Elephants  Rosie-the-elephant only knows Polish, but then, the protagonist does too.  A really fun read about a depression-era lad who runs off to join the circus.  I so love it when the villains get their just rewards, even if the end is a bit predictable.

Return of the old friend

Remember the lost erring from last year?  It surfaced with a PING! from the weed wacker.  Slightly the worse for wear, it earned a trip to a jeweler's to be reincarnated back into an erring.  I get to pick it up tomorrow - I'll be glad to get it back.  Yippee!

on to the next project

It's good to finish something.  Due to 2 days of enforced sitting in a chair, the beading project is finished.  I can't post photos as it is supposed to be a Christmas surprise.  There is a stray thread that needs gluing, and then it's all done.  I found a lovely new book on beading at my library http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Art-Beading-Essential-Techniques/dp/0811871606/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1304372792&sr=8-1 that has a number of lovely projects.  I think I need to buy it.
