Today dawned bloody marvelous so I fed the J Crew, did the usual Sweeping of the Floors, racked up 30 minutes on the treadmill, cleared some old bottles out of the fridge and took out the recycling, and now I’m putting together some chapters for Kindle Vella, whee!

But more importantly, I got my bench set up again so that I can start making jewelry. I just bought a pointed oval rutilated quartz cabochon like the one in the picture. I’m going to turn it into a pendant and use it as a giveaway (rutilated quartz has a featured role in Nicola’s A Theory of Crystal). But I have to get back into practice first so I’ll work on setting some pending pendants before I take a crack at this one.

Also paid the estimated taxes and the household bills, so I’m feeling good right now!
