After having had a heavy/stressful/unpleasant week, by Friday I had decided to be more lighthearted if it killed me. Within my first hour at work, one of my coworkers came to me sing-songing "I have a present for you!"
And she dropped into my grubby little mitt a hand-blown glass ring of blue and yellow stripes with a clear dome on top -- with a teeny little glass spider inside. Cutest thing ever! But I have big fingers, so I knew it wasn't going to slip right onto my ring finger, which is exactly what it did. Softened all the edges on the week.
Not easy to photograph, for obvious reasons. But it's really great, and I foresee a lot of me sticking it into people's faces in the future.
