If I've been so busy . . .

. . . then why can't I think of anything to write about?

I should have oodles of things to say, but my brain is just not working. Monday, my son and I picked up a van load of horse manure for the raised garden bed, and we got it all in there and raked before the rain hit. We've now had two days of on and off rain, so it's all nice and wet. The bed is draining beautifully; not a puddle in sight. Once things dry out a little, I'll get it topped up with dirt, and then I can plant my seeds.

I've made a new bead filigree bracelet, Caribbean Sea, and the wonderful folks at Bead and Button want to use it in their magazine. So I'll be hard at work writing up the directions over the next few days. I kept detailed notes while I was making it, as I knew I wanted to write a tutorial for it (if the magazine didn't want it, I was going to put the tutorial in my Etsy!) so now it's just a matter of writing it up and drawing diagrams. I drew one diagram this morning after I got the email from Bead and Button saying that they wanted to use it; but I've spent the rest of the day running errands, so that's as far as I got on that.

Hmmm. Maybe I'll be more interesting tomorrow.
