|My First Attempt at Making Necklaces|
The cloud cover kept it reasonably warm overnight, just down to the upper 40's. Because I didn't run the furnace as long as usual, it only took until around 11:00AM to recharge the batteries, even with hazy sun. Now, at 1:45, it is completely cloud covered with no visible sun, but I'm still getting 3 amps from the solar panels.
I went into town to buy wrapping paper, gift boxes, a US Post Office mailing box, and clear nail polish. Managed to find it all between the Dollar Store & Quiet Times. The nail polish is to seal the knots in the necklaces I made for the granddaughters. An interesting project. I can see how one can become addicted to making jewelry; it is fun, and while a bit repetitive, something you can do while listening to the radio. Anyway, today's photo is my first attempt.
It will be interesting to see if the girls can keep from breaking them. I used a stretchy cord to string them, but that makes tying the knots at the clasps difficult. There is probably an "official" way to do it, but a couple of half hitches & a blob of nail polish is my solution.
Even though it is completely overcast, it is warm enough to sit outside so that is where I'm headed.
Dinner was a quick trip to Sweet Darlene's for their all you can eat Friday Fish Fry. Very good beer batter Cod, excellent coleslaw & fries, all for $9.95. Hard to beat!
Until Tomorrow -
