Some new jewelry

I planned to make some jewelry over the holidays. Here are a few pieces.
The bracelet is made with my own viking knit, closure etc. The dangle is a heart by Thomas Mann, and a Thai sliver charm. The beads are handmade and unfortunatley I cannot remember who made them..... I bought them at Bead and Button. So pretty!
The earrings contain a silver flower that spins. I like them a lot!

Hot yoga

I have been wanting to try Hot yoga for a while. Today I decided to give it a go!
Well, it was definitely hot, 105 degrees Fahrenheit.... But it was good and so I am going to try it for a while. It is interesting how you can actually get a bit used to the heat. Two thirds into the class I thought it was too much and then managed to change my focus and finish it. It heats up your muscles while you stretch. I felt good when I came out. So, I survived, which was my goal! Now on to learning more yoga movements:)

Senior sale.....

Today I was at Shoppers to buy some cough medicine. As I checked out the young girl behind the cash register asked me if I was a senior.... Because that meant I would get a discount! Now, honestly, I love a sale, but did she really think I was a senior?! I must have looked very tired. No, while my age does not bother me, this one was too much:)
It is just like congratulating someone with her pregnancy only to find out she is not pregnant! The poor girl, she didn't know how fast to retract her words........
