Snowbird - Octoberfest!

This is a view of the Salt Lake Valley from the top of the mountain.

This is the tunnel that goes from one side of the mountain to the other.

This is what I did on Saturday. The last couple of years we have gone to Octoberfest in October. Not really something that I want to do again. It is usually snowing and FREEZING that high up. Last year it was snowing. So this year we got smart and went last weekend. It was a beautiful day and probably 50 or 60 degrees at the ski resort but colder on top of the mountain. Basically sweatshirt weather. Had the required BEER and ate the German food. I had Beef Rouladen and Dale (his mom was German) had Weisewurst??? Spelling?? Listened to the Polka music and had Apple Struessel. Sheesh I can't spell in German. Anyway it was all good. Rode the tram up to the top of the mountain, hiked a ways to the tunnel that goes from one side of the mountain to the other for the skiers, went through that and then rode the chair lift down. Saw a coyote or wolf on the trip down. Ate more dessert...required after that hike... had german chocolate cake and then went home. It was a great day and now we know to plan Octoberfest in September!

New Beadsets and Pandora Beads Today!

I bought a few rods of silver rich glass a few months ago and never have really done much with it. I had some difficulty working it right. It costs about $25.00 for 1/4 pound, so it is sure not cheap. Some of it I think I paid $4 a rod. So anyway since it was not coming out too pretty I just put it away instead of wasting all that moola. Well, last week I found some better instructions and got the glass out to play again. I made a couple of really pretty pandora beads with raised dots all over them...WOW is what I thought. Went to do the copper lining and broke the little dots clean off. Did that not just once but twice. I was soooooo po'd. The second bead ended up getting thrown across the kitchen. Of course it survived the trip...stupid thing. Anyway... they are on my little shrine of misbegotten beads...couldn't bear to throw them away yet. So the next day I tried to make more and here are a few of them. I have a whole bag of goodies I need to get listed, just need to find the time. More is on the way.. promise! :) HI MOM!
