Something New

Today has been a lazy day, Colin decided he got enough done at work yesterday (10am-7pm) that he would stay home so I haven't been very productive. We went for a long walk at the park with the dog since the snow has melted significantly. I have only made one set today and thought I would share. It is composed of Carnelian (orange) and Peridot chips. The set includes the necklace, earrings and a matching bracelet that is not shown ($58). I had to splurge on the Carnelian since the stone has so many variations and is cool looking.

Our crab dinner I mentioned cooking yesterday was delicious! Yum! I was a little worried since I have never cooked crab but I boiled the water and threw the crab legs in for 10 min and it turned out perfect. Colin even ate some of the asparagus (which he doesn't really like) and tons of Cheddar biscuits. Success! Too bad crab legs are not always on sale at the grocery store, but it was less than half the cost if we went out for the same meal. That makes Colin super happy. He would rather I spend double on good grocery's than waste money going out. It's a good thing he is around to balance me out. I love to go out but it probably stems from not liking to clean up after cooking. I am a very messy cook, it runs in the family. My father cooks and my mom cleans. He makes HUGE messes but is an awesome cook.
