TGIF!! I'm lucky to have Monday off, so it's a long weekend for me. Ryan, however, doesn't have the day off. He just started his accounting internship last week, so I'll use the day off to meet him for lunch and see his new work digs. I'm pretty excited! I'm also hoping to make it up to Trader Joe's and do some work on this blog.
In an earlier post, I mentioned some new necklaces I've been making. It's been fun and I've also held a necklace making session with Ryan's mom and sister. Here are a couple pictures of the necklaces I made for my coworkers' gifts. Stephanie and Diane help me out a lot at work, so I wanted to make something that they could use either as a necklace or a badge lanyard. (Hi ladies!!)
Here's a close up of the beads. I buy the beads from a big pot 'o beads at the bead store and it's really fun to pick out the neat ones.
One more thing I forgot to mention was that Ryan and I bought a fruitshare earlier in December. We had never done a fruitshare before, but wanted to check it out. We were not disappointed! We received a huge box of citrus fruits - grapefruits, oranges, satsumas, and clementines from organic farms in the U.S. We never took a picture because we dug right in and started eating.
The clementines were the best I've ever had - the sweetness was amazing! The oranges were bigger than grapefruits and the satsumas were really cool to try. I juiced most of the grapefruits for breakfast each morning...I just LOVE fresh squeezed juice!
We'll definitely be participating again in the future...can't wait for the peaches.
