I’ve been being very lazy – Al was in Phoenix all week (Yeah Economy!) and I was home alone. Well, as alone as I can be with 9 cats, LOL. I did all the usual things, catch up on laundry and dishes, scoop the litter boxes (exciting times!) and READ!! I finished Mystery by Jonathan Kellerman, an excellent book, all of his books are great. I really liked the procedure in this book. They kept uncovering clues and those kept changing their theory of the murder, it kept me guessing.
And I made headway on 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. This is such an interesting book, I’m only about 1/3 into it, and I love it. It’s very difficult to describe, it starts to seem like it might be fantasy or science fiction, and then – bang – it gets real. The two different story lines are starting to come together, I can hardly wait to find out what happens next. I love the Japanese background, and he’s written a bunch of books, and I’m going to check them out when I’ve finished this one.
Since I had the time, I experimented with my nail stamping plates. I thought that I would try some french tips. I saw so many women with traditional french tips at work, I didn’t want to do anything so ordinary – plain white tips and pale pink nails. I’ve been looking at all my stamps, and thought that I would try some jazzed up french tips. I like the concept of a darker color pattern on the tip, but I definitely need more practice. And maybe a different color scheme, Al remarked that I didn’t even have a base coat on my nails at all. This is O.P.I. Samoan Sand for the base, and Revlon Plum Attraction for the pattern. I used the image plate Mash 06.
