Trying to find things to write about

So anyway...The NASCAR season is in full swing now. My favorite driver came in 4th yesterday and will drive in three more races in the next three days. Hope he wins one of them. Except for when he broke both legs this is the lowest in points he has ever been.
Another puzzle is done. Now I only have two 1000 pieces ones left to do. Can't find any decent ones that are reasonably priced on line. The ones I like are "out of stock." Lots of blue in this one.
The gardener came the other day and "trimmed" the Palo Verde. We knew he was going to do it but didn't realize it would be so drastic. I'm glad all the pretty flowers that were on it were gone. At least now we can see the plants that were under it.
Bill made this clock many years ago. He bought the wood from a logger in Oregon. I think it is maple burl. The clock had stopped working so he ordered a new one and it is now installed. Pretty isn't it.
So here is what the weird necklace looks like when worn. I'm wondering where to store it. Can't just be folded up and put in a box.
And here is the flowered one after I shortened the band. The vines are more spread out now.
Here are a couple of other things I beaded in the past. - Just sitting in a box now.

Looking for another beading project to work on and still working on my stained glass plant. Bill has added a few more pieces to the rooster.
Today it will be up in the 90's again but at least the wind has let up some. By the end of the week it will be up around 109 - ugh.

Thanks. I just started reading the Garden of Allah Novel Trilogies. I had been looking for a good series.

TC - hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

I think your strange necklace needs a snake head with jewel eyes at the top...just me😊

Kathy good idea I'll keep my eye out for something that would work.
