The Mister surprised everyone with a small heap of bay crabs. It's not our usual bushel full but it was enough with all the other food.
While everyone pounded away on the crabs I spent a rainy afternoon in the craft room with the grands making art. They went home with plenty of masterpieces and I was left with a lot of good memories. It was the first time in over a year that we've had anyone in the house and I am happy to say The Mister and I are pleasantly worn out. I'm pretty sure today is going to a couch potato day. We can clean up tomorrow.

I also got some cardboard floss organizers for individual projects.
All I have to say about that is...Italy, really? I guess there must be a lot of Spinal Tap fans still out there. Rock on.

You use mala beads like prayer beads. You pull them one at a time slowly through your fingers to help focus your mind when it starts to wander as you concentrate on the message you are trying to send yourself. There are 108 beads for 108 breaths. The problem with the string of beads I bought is that the beads were strung too close together to be able to really feel each of them. I have a giant bead collection so I added spacers between them and substituted some of the original beads out for some of mine to mark divisions of the quarters and mid point.
Om............it helps. It really does.

To make matters worse, I even ended up braking the drive band. My first attempt at spinning in a long while was like a Charlie Chaplin comedy routine with me fighting that wheel. I lost. Sigh.....
And.......I had someone ask me yesterday if the nautical sampler was from the cover of a cross stitch magazine. It sure is. From 1989. How many years have I been working on this? Don't tell me. I don't want to know.
