Got a load out of the tumblers. Mostly labradorite. I should have used the pellet cushions in that barrel. It took a good shiny polish but it's pretty fracture-y.
I also got out some Michigan septarian. It actually took a great fracture-free polish but that barrel was more pellets than stones so...maybe that's the secret. Now I need to get a glass or wooden bowl to display my new creations.
I also got three new spheres from J. delivered yesterday. I was planning to keep the Leaf Jasper and give the other two as gifts. However, as soon as I saw them, I wanted to keep them all.
Made the Tim Ferris roast chicken on an iron skillet. It came out great, although I used satsumas (since I have tons of them from our tree) and not lemons to stuff the chicken.
Did a lot of clean-up around the house. Then I went to my secret board on Pinterest where I pin the music I plan to buy and found out I'd done a pretty good job of buying much of it. But I still picked up a couple of new items. Ha.
I can't buy everything as soon as I see it because I'm too old and slow. Let's say I get it on iTunes, which I mostly do. Then I have to convert it to an mp3 before I can put it on the phone. So then I have to turn on Airdroid and it has to bitch me out over whether or not it feels like working or not. Once I get the song on my phone, then it's time to make a CD for backup or some such. I think I'm traumatized by losing my bird list since I'm convinced nothing is safe in the Amazon or iTune cloud or on my computer. So I make a CD and then figure it will get swept away in the next Katrina. No wonder it takes me all week to spend $10.
Don't get me started on what's involved in buying a music video.
There was a huge sale of $300 tickets to Europe yesterday evening but...I decided not to jump. I just don't want to buy any more coach tickets with my knee. I plan to fly first/business from here on out. So far the plan has saved me a fortune since I haven't bought any tickets at all since I reached the decision.
So it seems like I had a rather busy Saturday for not even leaving the house. I even did a load of laundry. Go me. No wonder I slept in until 9:30 this morning despite Nyota's grumblings.
The turk's caps are in bloom now. It's winter hummingbird season. I need to get the feeders back up.
