Beads and bedlam don’t play well together

     I wanted to sit down, listen to my French course, and work on a necklace for which I had an idea.  I needed to get my mind off my book for a little while and relax.  It didn’t happen.  When I pulled out my boxes of beads Gavin started shaking his head repeatedly.  This is not a good sign since he’s subject to a chronic ear infection.

     Gavin’s ear was bothering him again so I spent some time cleaning it out and babying him.  Poor dog hates having his ears cleaned but with a few cookies to aid me, I got the job done.  Tomorrow we’re making an appointment to take him to the vet.  He hates going there so this should be fun-NOT!

     Once I settled Gavin down, I started to get out my beading board.  Then I looked at the clock, realized that Dear Hubby was hours late returning home from his pain management appointment, and began to worry.  Trying to call him on his cell phone didn’t help since all I got was a busy signal.

     Then DH arrived home, he hadn’t made his appointment, instead he’d been in a minor fender bender and sat for over two hours waiting for the police to arrive.  Don’t worry he’s fine and his truck only had some paint transfer on it.  

     It’s no surprise that at this point the whole idea of working on a new necklace design escaped me.

  1. Glad to hear the the fender bender wasn’t serious, but sorry about poor Gavin’s ear infection, and even more sorry about the loss of a wonderful new necklace inspiration.

    Perhaps it will return. Hope the ears heal quickly.

    I’m glad DH had his cell phone along, the only thing we can figure is every time I called him he was calling the PD to see when someone would get there.
