Lightning strikes

What a night last night! Lightning hit our house and a few other houses in our neighborhood. Instantaneous crack and flash, hair stood up on end, smoke detectors all went off -- wild! No fire, fortunately, but we had to reset a lot of electronics, and we lost the DVD, VCR, and tuner in the living room. Fortunately the computer (which was on) didn't get blasted. And it barely woke up Zack, even when the smoke detectors went off. He sat up when Rick went in his room, kind of looked around, and went back to sleep. Good boy!

Tomorrow is the St. Michaels Strawberry Festival, and we're keeping our fingers crossed for decent weather. The past two years, it's rained, but it didn't keep the patrons away. I love these smaller shows, and this one is local to me so I don't have travel costs.

Since all the jewelry is packed, I'm going to work on the book list now! So check back soon!

And I'll leave you with yet more photos of jewelry I'm taking to the show -- visit for more handcrafted beaded jewelry!

    Thanks for the booklist... Shame you can't have a link right from the book to amazon.

  2. That WOULD be cool, but it take a lot more time than I have right now -- but if you read my blog regularly, I DO link to the ones I'm reading and talk about.



I appreciate comments! Thank you for contributing to the conversation.
