Blood, Bike, Buttons & Beads

Here's a picture of Jake and KC after giving blood. They both needed less than a point to get an A in their Health class and they were able to earn enough extra credit by giving blood to get their grade up.
I will post more pictures of my new bike soon. It is so pretty. But for now this shows my favorite part. The hula girl decal I think was the deciding factor in Richard choosing this bike. This was my Mother's Day gift and I am so excited! Richard and the boys seemed just as excited to give it to me. Later in the day Brent brought over a basket for it as a mother's day gift. So I am all set to ride it to work - which I did this morning. It is only about a mile to work - and the mornings are not so warm that I will get all sweaty riding that short of a distance. It was a little breezy this morning - but it was great. I changed into my skirt and some other shoes once I got here. I have wanted a bike for some time - it is so pretty!!!!!
I made this bracelet last night out of seed beads and buttons. It was easy and fun to make. Although I am a little worried about how it is going to hold up. I think the pattern would make a neat necklace also.
Another picture of the bracelet I made and today's mug. I even had room in my bike basket for my coffee thermos and my cup. Did I mention how excited I am about my new bike?
