Catching Up

Finally made my first Julie Ann Smith designed bracelet. Took a long time and was not easy to do but I think it was worth it. I just love her colourful fun designs. I have 3 more to try. Minor adjustments must be made as the patterns are in odd count Peyote and I prefer to do even count (want to know why...inquire within.)

Anthony and I went to see the tiger cubs again at The Secret Garden. They are out of the nursery and have a lovely area of the garden. We were lucky to catch all 5 of them out there. They were getting their bottles when we arrived. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't think there is anything cuter than a tiger cub.

I guess the jury is still out on the success of the e-poker tables at the Excalibur. I have not gone over there yet, I get most of my info on the message board at twoplustwo. We did go to opening night of the Eastside Cannery. First new casino in that area in ten years I believe. They did a very nice job, I wish it much success. The poker room is in a premium location, right by the front door. Cannery North, take notes. We didn't play because the players cards from the old Cannery didn't work there and the line was too long for new cards.

There is hope that the temperatures will drop out of the hundreds soon. Not soon enough for me.


  1. Ooh tiny beads (and the ppl with the courage to take them on) always impress me. ^_^ Love that bracelet. And yes, tiger babes are just too cute.


  2. I've been to Vegas in August, actually 3 times. I can't imagine how you tolerate it living there in the heat. One day at the pool we were all sitting there when a single puffy little cloud floated right over us and actually cast a shadow on the pool as it passed. Everyone cheered. Just thought that was the funniest thing. You get in the pool to cool off and by the time you get back to your chair you are bone dry. I think they said it was 118 degrees that day. Geesh.

  3. I love your newest bracelet! The colors are fantastic. Yes, definitely worth the time you spent on it - a real winner! Hope it cools off for you soon.

  4. Your efforts were DEFINITELY worth it! That's a fun and fabulous bracelet.
