So yesterday I was SICK. No idea what was wrong, but I felt like crap all day. Headache, tummy ache, a slight fever, no energy. Bah. I went to bed at 6:30 when I realized I was dozing off while trying to make earrings. I woke up at 9:30, starving, and got up to make some cream of wheat. I wasn't sure I could go back to sleep, so I putzed around online for a while, but was back in bed by 11:00. I woke up this morning at 7:30, hit the snooze, and then woke up again at 8:00, because the electricity went back on... I hadn't even realized it was off, though it seems it wasn't off for long.

I woke up feeling like an entirely new woman. J thinks I was just exhausted or over-fatigued, though I can't imagine why I would be. Still, sleeping like the dead for the better patr of a day seems to have healed whatever was wrong.

[profile] happy_peasant came out today to help me with some photos for Etsy. For some reason, It's been really difficult to get good photos. I even had [livejournal.com profile] meryddian  out here to shoot, but we have had a hell of a time with lighting, focus, etc. Steve was able to get some really good closeup detail shots, which I will augment with artsy-fartsy shots that don't need to have as much detail. There are some of Cheryl's shots that came out really well, so between the two of them and me, I should be able to get my butt in gear on Etsy VERY soon.

Punkin's boyfriend got a new car. His Mom, who kicked him out of the house earlier this year, co-signed on a loan for him. She also brought my daughter souvenirs from her trip to Israel - a pair of very pretty malachite earrings, and a Jerusalem cross necklace.  Weird, since until very recently, she's been very anti-my-kid.  ("You know those Buddhists believe all kinds of weird things...")  I think she was unable to resist making a bit of a dig with the religious necklace, but Punkin accepted the gifts in the spirit of kindness and sent a very nice thank you note.

Oh, and the car is a bright yellow, brand new Cobalt. I am very glad he got it. Punkin's car is safe (it's my old Saturn) but the boy's car WAS a LeBaron that was literally held together with duct tape and coat hangers. I feel better knowing that neither of them is likely to break down on the road now.

it is difficult to get photos for etsy. were you shooting outside? i have a lightbox and a lot of lights i use to shoot inside. also, make use of the macro function on your camera. it helps a lot.
