Earrings and falling down

Yesterday morning I made 11 pairs of earrings, and photographed them and one I had made previously. I need to get all the recent creations carded up and ready to deliver. I also have to figure out exactly what each pair cost to make. Jeez. I have my work cut out for me. But I guess if I want to start making a living out of my jewelry making it will take some work!!

Got home yesterday to my dad lying on the floor in the living room. Fortunately he had only been on the floor for about 1/2 hour. Eric and the neighbor came and got him back up. Eric was so sweet with him. He gently took off his slippers and support stockings and helped get him sitting back up and then up on his feet and into his chair. Thankfully he is okay. Just a little bruised and stiff from the fall. His back is a bit sore, and his shoulder is a little sore from where he landed. But nothing is broken and I think he will be okay. Whew!!!

Here are some of the latest earrings I made:

And here is what came to lunch today:
Momma raccoon has been eating my catfood for several months. She finally decided to bring her babies with her in the middle of the day so I could get their picture. Aren't they the cutest!!! (click on the photo to see it bigger.)
