Cure for a Gray Day




It’s rainy and gray here. I had a crown procedure at the dentist yesterday, so I’m sore and grumpy. I just want to go back to bed, really, really bad. I’m holding onto the fact that tomorrow is Saturday. If the kids allow, I can sleep a little later and maybe even get a nap during the day. Plus, it’s getting up to 60 degrees, with partly sunny skies. Yea! Come Monday, though, we’re supposed to have snow showers and cold temps. The weather around here is so schizophrenic. No wonder so many of us seem to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (Thirty Rock reference – did anyone catch it last night?)

So, let’s think happy thoughts to try to get us to the end of the day. Have you seen the work of jewelry designer Lisa Leonard? I recently discovered her line of jewelry, Lisa Leonard Designs, and I really like it. In fact, I e-mailed her Web site link to Hubby, in case he’s looking for Valentine’s Day inspiration. (To my credit, I’ve already purchased his V-Day gift. I’m on it, I tell ya!) Her necklaces and bracelets are perfect for any occasion and you can have them personalized. She also has a blog, so you can learn more about Lisa and what inspires her.

Feel a little better? Sometimes jewelry helps. So does a stiff drink. But, at least the jewelry won’t leave you with a hangover.

I love Lisa Leonard. I have been perusing her site and so want something. I should sent her link over to Mr. as well. Feel free to send me your husband's email and I can offer some friendly advice and helpful nudges to ensure you get a fab V-day gift. :)

Was hubby's Valentine's Day gift a new transmission????

Have a great weekend. Hope you get those naps.

Buck up little buddy, spring will be here soon. I think your jewelry post will brighten some days, but personally I may go for the stiff drink and a nap.

How pretty. Hope you feel better soon! And I hope the little ones let you get a nap in. I know how hard that can be.

I have a necklace like that with Sumter and Jackson's names on it... I wear it all the time and get so many compliments!

I am with you about the SED. I am so ready for Spring! Hope your weekend turns golden instead of gray!

I love the C - it reminds me of a vintage doorplate, and I have a thing for architectural ironmongery.
