The anti bead

or - simply a day without beads.  It wasn't intentional.  I took practically the whole kit and kaboodle (well, ok, two trays and box) with me to Coyote today, but it just didn't happen.  And what with the glitches, and freezes and problems that I had with this technological miracle called the Internet today, it's probably just as well.  Because I have a feeling it would have been a two steps forward and three steps back kind of beading day today, anyway.
So I bead BLOGGED instead.  I've been reading through some of my favorites, catching up on happenings, wishing that I was the world traveler (Kate) consummate hostess (Marcia) and animal rescue specialist (Cynthia) that some of them strive to be.  Alas - I'm pretty much a homebody.  Well, within a 60 mile radius body anyway.  I'm seriously considering an extended trip to Florida in May, though.  I'm being drawn strongly to going down to help my parents make the snow bird trip back up to Michigan that is becoming a drag for them.  I will have to move some things around, and could possibly miss my TWENTY NINTH wedding anniversary - but I can't get it off my mind.  Something is telling me that I need to go.  It's just figuring out how to get there.  I don't have a reliable car.  I don't really want to leave my husband without his Jeep (don't think he'd let me anyway), nor do I want to drive alone for all those many hours on unfamiliar roads.  Fly?  Not my cup of tea.  I'm not comfortable flying - and I make no excuses - it's my size.  At the same time, I'm amongst the part of the U.S. population that believes that the current TSA frisking and security rules have gotten way out of hand, and will not participate in the madness.  So I sit here instead - longing for Florida.  Settling for Michigan.  Freezing instead of breezing.  
Looking forward to a quiet beady Friday.  Maybe I'll figure out what to do with "In Need of Calmer Seas".  It's at the neckpiece point - and the original thought of a peyote spiral now seems like way too much work, especially since I don't have all the proper sizes involved, which would mean a 40 minute trip one way to the bead store.  Hell-might as well just go 20 more and end up in Frankenmuth again!  SO -  I hope I'll have an epiphany in the middle of the night as I often do, or at least wake up ready to come up with some fresh ideas.  And I gotta finish those class kits, dang it.  The class is on SATURDAY!
Peaceful beading everyone.  Here's to beading brighter tomorrow....
