A day of nothing

Ian let me sleep in today until after noon - that was nice :) I'd stopped taking the clonazepam because I was sleeping too long and having freaky dreams. My doctor told me to take 1/2 of a pill, and that doesn't make me groggy in the morning, doesn't make me sleep forever, and doesn't give me freaky dreams. It also means that I don't wake up in the night, which is nice.

I bought a tackle box in which to keep my jewelry stuff. It is a small one that has 3 separate plastic boxes that each can have 24 compartments. That's enough for me right now :) I especially like that this is very portable; I can sling it over my shoulder and go.

We also bought some chain and a dowel to use for photographing the earrings. Ian read a thing about photographing to sell on eBay, and we're trying to put those principles into practice. Not that I'll be selling on eBay, of course, but I do want to take good photographs of my stuff. People tell me that my earrings look much better in person than in the photographs, so that's not good.

Of course I'm making more earrings.... I just can't stop. :) I love each and every pair that I make, which is a good sign, I think.

Oh yeah, and we should be able to pick up the car on Wednesday. They're putting rust-proofing and scotchguarding stuff on. We hope that they'll be able to order snow tires and have them installed by then, too. We'll know more about that on Monday. In other good news, our landlord is providing a second parking space for the five months for free! We're quite happy about that :)
