Another Beautiful Fall Day

Today was another awesome fall day in Wisconsin! Almost too warm. Waiting for the other shoe to drop and for the weather to turn colder.

The silver bracelet is Saki silver. It makes a wonderful sound when I wear it. I needed some instant gratification, so I made it in a snap. I love Saki silver.

The other image is the corkscrew lariat that I've been working on for over a month. It is a slow process, but one I enjoy doing.

I have some other jewelry to work on for submission for a book gallery, so the corkscrew will have to take a back seat until that's done. Of course I've known about the submission due date for a long time, but I'm a lifetime procrastinator. Don't see that changing in the near future.

This is a true story. I once bought a book on conquering procrastination, but it sat next to my bed until I decided that I'd never read it and gave it to Goodwill.

I have a few quotations for today: the first comes from William James: Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an unfinished task.

The second comes from unknown:
The best way to get something done is to begin.

The third comes from Don Marquis: Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.
