It's been a while...

It's been a while since I've posted last as I have been busy with things. Lots of stuff has come in this week material wise. My kiln on Monday, which is going to be set up this weekend and some PMC clay and more wire for pendants that came in yesterday. I also got some beautiful ring sized cabochons of natural rubies, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, citrine and green tourmaline. I also have a beautiful colored iolite stone and opal floating around. Lots of stuff to play with this weekend. I'm also expecting some green turquoise in that I ordered that I think will make beautiful men's rings just in time for Father's Day.

Speaking of father's Dave totally ticked me off last night. On our weekly grocery trip I had bought some pre-cooked chipolte flavored chicken that was cut up similar to how fajitas would be with longer pieces or strips of chicken mixed in with smaller "chunks". Bought tortillas and some shredded lettuce and whatever else would be needed for the meal and cooked it up last night. I was busy getting Little G's plate ready and getting him buckled in his booster seat at the table so I told Dave to go ahead and fix his plate up first. So by the time I get back to the kitchen to fix my plate Dave is done and already put his on the table. I take a look in the skillet and he took ALL of the big, long, strips of chicken all that was left were the little chunks that were like 1 to 1.5 inches. Then he actually came back into the kitchen getting the drinks and says, in a truly genuine tone, "See, I left you LOTS of chicken". I was speechless, all I could do was shake my head pour my chicken pieces into the tortillas and just go with it. Tonight we're having spaghetti, at least I know there's no bigger pieces for him to hog tonight.

Man, if J does that to me, I just go to his plate and pick myself 2-3 pieces, put them on my plate and say "no fair"

My theory is whoever cooked the meal gets first dibbs & better pickings :)
