So last night we had steaks, lobster, and baked potatoes, as well as some salads brought by coworkers, and I furnished homemade ice cream since I found my ice cream freezer not long ago. One person brought a homemade apple pie and another one, cream filling of some sort (I didn't taste that one). My, was everything good! I didn't over eat, just to comfort levels. I had a couple glasses of wine with it and thoroughly enjoyed a great evening with good food and good company.
At the end of the evening, he presented us each with a piece of jewelry in appreciation of our work, our choice of earrings, a pendant or a pin in the shape of a bear. The bear is special because it is the trademark of the Gallery and was designed by one of the artists. I chose the pendant. When I got home I slid it on a necklace of strands of tiny silver tubes , called silver rain or liquid silver, and it looks very nice. I may try other chains, etc., but for now here is what it looks like .....
I tried to get a close up, but the glare was awful, even without the flash.
I know I'll enjoy wearing the pendant. I'm a jewelry hound, if you don't already know that, and almost any addition to my collection is treasured. Could the evening have ended any better? I don't think so.
And now, I need to go and finish up some tasks before Gail returns today. Her room is essentially ready, but I have to finish sorting and downsizing in the living room. I Would like to be able to walk through it without zig-zagging or hurting my toes!
Good day, everyone! Yep ........
Life is beautiful!!!
