Now, to the most delightful experience I have had in the last few months.
Today I went to heaven. Or, more exactly, to the Gem and Mineral Show in Kansas City. Within two minutes of walking into the exposition I felt like I have died and gone to heaven.
So many incredibly beautiful stones, shining bright... I felt like my blood pressure skyrocketed to at least 250/200 :) I literally felt my head swim. It was incredible brain-purging experience.
I was lucky that they had also insect exposition near the exit, so looking at the scary ugly spiders larger than my hand and giant scolopendras instantly returned me to reality.
Of course, I bought a few things too - a blue topaz pendant, very beautiful; a tiger's eye earrings to go with my cat-shaped pendant; and a small alligator head - completely natural.
I just wanted to share my extatic happiness with you. If you ever have an opportunity to go to a similar event near you - don't miss it.
