A Harry Potter Weekend

My weekend started on Friday, with a quick trip to a small bead show in Baltimore. I kept going back and forth on attending, as there weren't going to be a lot of vendors, but I'd not gone to it in a year or two, so thought I'd try it again. Boy, am I ever glad I did. I hit the motherlode of gemstone clasps -- none were cheap, but they will certainly make chain maille bracelets something ultra-special:

Smoky quartz, moonstone, pearl, larimar, turquoise, blue lace agate, and seraphinite -- and also a really cool pendant I couldn't resist. Awesome stuff!

The much-anticipated highlight of the weekend, was, of course, getting the last Harry Potter book. I thought it was coming by FedEx, but when I went to check the mailbox, there it was! So I ripped open the box and plunked down to start reading around 1pm. I had a brief nap around 6pm, and then read to page 658 and had to call it a night. I finished the rest of the book this morning, and without giving anything away, I have to call this the best one EVER, and the movie is going to be amazing. I feel like starting the entire series from the beginning again -- this is probably my favorite set of books ever.
