Gone yesterday, here today

Last year, in February, I went to visit my sister in Washington D.C. I brought with me, for some reason, one of my favorite rings. It's a gold ring with garnet and onyx and two diamond studs. I love red and black and wear the colors often so I really like that ring. However, I rarely wear the ring itself, I'm just not a jewelry person so I keep it in it's jewelry box.

When I came home from my vacation, I found a note in my apartment that stated that the maintenace guys would be coming into all of our apartments the next day to change out the filters and replace batteries in our smoke alarm. My place was a mess and I didn't have time to clean up.

So, a couple of days later I finished unpacking and putting things away and I couldn't find the ring anywhere. I looked all over the place. I couldn't remember if I even wore it on my way home and decided to call my sister in case I left it there. Nope, not there. Reluctantly I concluded that one of the guys who came through my apartment took it.

Early this month, a note was posted on my door that maintenance would be coming through to change filters and batteries in smoke alarms. I was really stressed by it. But now, my apartment is much cleaner so it's harder to take something without immediately noticing it.

The morning that were scheduled to come into my apartment my maid was cleaning. I told her they were coming and it would be ok to let them in, I was just glad she was going to be here. It's a lot more difficult to get away with stealing if someone is around to catch you doing it.

When I got home the ring was sitting on my night stand. Wow, what a shock. Did my maid find it or was someone's conscious bothering them and they decided to return the ring?

I finally had a moment to ask my maid. She told me she found it...under the bed of course. I was actually very relieved to know that one of the guys DID not steal it. I like them and want to feel comfortable about them coming into my apartment.

Anyway, it's a happy ending.

Oh where o where could she be

So, it's been a very long time since I've posted anything. Sorry ya'll.

About two or three weeks ago I went to the Round Top Market with my neighbor and I bought a few things. One of the most significant purchases is a dress form. I have been owanting one for some time but they are sooo expensive. I've priced them at $300. At the market I found one for $85. Granted, it's used, but it fits my measurements. It's actually slightly bigger, but that's fine. I love to sew dresses and I want them to fit me properly.

I've done about 11 blocks on my quilt. That leaves me about 19 to go. I hope he have it finished by the end of the summer.

My new office is coming along. We had a local devloper approach us to sell their new town homes for them. We are still in the negotiation phase but it looks very promising. This is a very good campaign with which we can launch our company.

I'm still doing my Sunday brunch every other Sunday. Today, we went to Farrago's. What a noisy place. And it seemed that people at the tables around us were spilling their water! (better that than their cookies....he he ). The food was really good but it seemed that we had to yell across the table to be heard. It's a good thing we were a small group today.

Ok, so now ya'll know I'm still very much alive and well. I'll try not to wait so long to post.

Better Days

I'm back on the name brand version of Dostinex. I feel much better.

It's about 9:00, I just got in from work about 30 minutes ago. I'm worn out, I'll have to post later.

Ciao Baby.
