Beads, Tomatoes, Peppers, and Taxes.

I had a bit of a beady slump last week; in fact I spent most of the week on the couch reading Patrick O'Brian. I was a bit fluey, so that's my excuse. Anyway. This week I just felt like breaking loose and playing, so I made a crazily eccentric set of clear beads with touches of gold "Aurae" glass.  We'll see how they do, they're headed for eBay later today.

I'm starting tomatoes and peppers from seed this year, and I've got a nice group of husky young plants, I think I'll put them out in the sun tomorrow for an hour or so. 

I've finally got my taxes back from the accountant, and I dragged myself kicking and cursing to the bank to pay; today being the last day.....and I'm damned if I'll give Stephen Harper one penny of interest....grrrr. I'm in a suprisingly good mood, though, I've got a nice busy summer coming up, and then plenty of travel coming this fall and next year, woohoo!! I'm going to Moscow to teach, so that's pretty cool. Here's a few pictures for you....
