Stephanie went back to school yesterday morning, as she is doing a summer intensive for her program. It's similar to an internship, which means she has a very busy two months ahead of her. We tried to do her favorite things during her ten day vacation, but I ran out of steam by the end of it and got a bit cranky. I hope she remembers the fun stuff instead of the crankiness.
My niece went to her senior prom last night and I went over to take photos. Isn't she beautiful? You can tell I'm proud of her, because my eyes have disappeared!
The weather was beautiful yesterday, so I puttered around outside for a bit, repotting a peace lily, and planting some hostas, as well as refilling the bird feeders. I love how our side yard has turned into a small bird area.
I bought a really interesting pair of earrings, made from pieces of an old tin globe. I always try to buy my earrings from artists, so I can support artisans and because I can always find unique pieces that way.
Speaking of handmade, there is a new shop nearby that sells on consignment, and I am thinking of applying to sell a few things, mostly baby hats and sweaters, and accessories like cowls, scarves, and handwarmers. There is a lot of discussion on the Ravelry forums about whether it is ethical to do so. What is your opinion on the subject? And if you agree I can sell on a small scale, what about pricing?
We also walked down to the beach, for the first time since March. It's almost criminal that I haven't been down in so long.
