What keeps me up at night ...

These Hub pages of mine did not start out to be all about food. I actually have some ideas I'd like to write about, rants to expel, poetry to share ... a whole list of things these pages were meant to be about. Yet, food, it seems, has taken center stage ... for the moment.

Last night, however, I got a bug in the blanket over an item of jewelry I wanted to make. These brainstorms don't come as often as I'd like, but that's probably a good thing. My sleep schedule is spotty enough, as it is.

My bead and component supply is enough to stock a small shop ... OK , a very small shop, but over plenty for one person. I tend to worry about items I haven't yet used, so when an idea comes to me I feel compelled to create ... right now! This doesn't work when the inspiration arrives at four o'clock in the morning.

It's bad enough to feel the need to get up for any reason after Beano (our Boglen terrier) goes to his night night bed (yes, this is what I call it. He is a spoiled rotten dog and I take some responsibility for treating him like a small child). His bed time is ten pm and he normally sleeps until about 7:30 in the morning. On those rare occasions he wakens before then ... well, this may be a subject for another blog.

Back to my original thought.

I tend to obsess over things. So, when a notion hits I need to take care of it. When they strike in the middle of the night I have, in the past, rolled over, called my own telephone number and left a voice message; I have sent myself email and I do keep a pad of paper on my nightstand ... just in case ... and of course the messages, in no matter what form, are very detailed because I also fear forgetting some small element.

Let me say that, although this obsession can be viewed as an annoyance, I have rarely lost anything and pretty much never forget anything (I really hesitate to state that publicly because then I lose at least one moderately acceptable excuse).

I've done it again; thoughts wandering like a small, unsupervised child in the mall. This is my brain ... and it ISN'T on drugs!

All this to say, I had an idea for a necklace and this is what I made today.

      Her cooking has better flavor, but her jewelry is tops in style! Unique bling is her thing.
