I really love this ethically-made baroque pearl necklace by Frogpearl, which was waiting for me when I returned home from London yesterday. I'm sure that it will be making an appearance in many forthcoming posts, but I didn't want to take those kind of photographs today, mainly because I am feeling a little sick, and still in my pajamas. Pearls and pajamas? Why not?
I try to take a working trip to London every couple of months or so to recharge. (When you live in the country, it is incredible how relaxing a trip to the city can be! After spending a year doing fieldwork based in London, it quickly became one of my favorite places.) It was great to catch up with my friends there and to make some new ones. Even though I returned home a little sleep deprived, as always, it was well worth it, especially since I'm not likely to be heading back there much until this thesis is finished.
I'm hanging out with little Bogart today and working from home. I can tell that he really missed me, because he is following me around like a shadow, napping at the end of the couch as I write this, snoring away. Such a cute little guy!
