Say What You Will

It has been a great week, and honestly, I can't complain.  I am tired, but that's fine - we have weekends for naps, and sleeping in, and being lazy in between errands.

I lost a really nice earring yesterday.  I'm trying to let it go - after all, I don't know for certain I didn't lose it in the house.  But, chances are just as good that I lost it at a gas station or the work parking lot, or... well, if I knew, I'd go find it, now wouldn't I?

The sentimental value of the earring is nil.  The fiscal loss is a bummer, but it's not like Guy de Maupassant's necklace.  And by that I mean the perceived value in that story, not the actual value.  Basically, I bought myself a modest pair of garnet earrings as an atta girl when I started this new job.  So, there you have it.  I am now in possession of one modest garnet, and I can use this in a ring I am planning.  I have some loose stones from a variety of sources (some earrings from an ex, some other stones from jewelry I never wear), and I want to use them in a cluster ring - something like this:

Sterling Silver Genuine Sky Blue Topaz, Created Blue Sapphire and Created Aquamarine Tonal Gemstone Cluster Ring, Size 9

So, yeah - I'm trying to reframe this lost earring into a positive.   This is why I can't have nice things, y'all.  It's also why I rarely spend much money on jewelry.  Yeah, yeah - first world problems.

We're finally getting some fall-like weather - just in time for me to panic about not having a thing to wear!  This is how it goes.

In other news, I'm researching what kind of advent calendar to buy myself this holiday season. 

I try to be low maintenance, but sometimes I have days where I feel like this:

Fluffy, fussy, disapproving, and entitled.

I'll try again later when I am less vapid.

Happy Weekend, Y'all!
