I spent a few hours a few Sundays ago sifting through larges piles of old, found, vintage, costume and disregarded by one yet collected by another jewelry. It was a small portion of a large collection from that of Jonathan's late "G Dad" who once mapped the ocean floor in a submarine and "found" over $10,000 in change throughout his lifetime.

I love jewelry but have never really been one to buy a lot of it. My almost-everyday earrings a bridesmaid gift from my sister's wedding, my favorite silver ring a birthday gift from my mother, my Nixon Rotolog an exchange mistake and gift from my friend Tom, and my precious gold cocktail ring a Banana Republic clearance find.

The G Dad finds are truly treasures.

Apple strikes again!

The Apple Magic Mouse is one of my favorite Apple products!
i've had mine for almost 2 months now and just realized how much I love it.

I spent the last 4 years with an ergonomic 3M mouse that worked wonders for my carpal tunnel so I was a little skeptical when making the switch.

The first few days i found the Magic Mouse to be too heavy and hard to keep under control. My carpal tunnel surfaced again for the first time in years. i considered the idea that maybe the Magic Mouse and i were simply not meant to be. but then.. with the "click of a finger" it all changed and became very natural.
i fell in love with my Magic Mouse and i am sure he fell in love with me too :)

Last week, i traded out my Magic for the 3M due to low batteries and i realized how natural the Magic and i had grown to work together. i dearly missed the one finger scrolling and zooming options and found the 3M "cord" cumbersome. So, with fresh batteries locked and loaded in my Magic Mouse i am free to mouse wirelessly, scroll right/left/up and down, shortcut right click and zoom all with the magic touch a my hand!
