Carpe Diem Today!

1 Carat tw Rhodolite Eternity Ring in 18K White Gold

Hub said over dinner last night that times are bad so who knows if he would be the next to lose his job. And how would I feel if this should happen?

I do not want to sound nonchalant about serious things like this, especially when I have parents back home partly depending on me for their retirement, but what can one do about it? When you think of people dying of war or hunger elsewhere, others living in the streets, people working 2 jobs already and still not making ends meet, you know that we couldn't be too badly off even if he should lose his job tomorrow. We would have to downgrade everything, eat less well, stop going on holidays, stop spending frivolously. But we should get by. And I've known hard times, I wasn't born with a silver spoon in the mouth after all.

Having said that, while the salary still comes in at the end of the month at the moment, I thought I should seize the day, this day. Especially when we're nearing the festive season and I'm already in the midst of preparing for the Winter Fair with the PTA. Starting to think glitter, see glitter - so I bought some glitter.

Saw a pretty pink semi-precious eternity ring and bought it. It's composed of 30 rhodolites (1 carat in total) set in 18k white gold. Made in France.

I used to be quite irritated when one of Hub's pleasure-seeking pals used the phrase "Carpe Diem". Must say that it doesn't have such a bad ring to it when I start employing it myself.

I'm a green monster now by looking at the picture of the ring with envy. I like the ring as its beautiful and yet not too "showy". Good choice, friend!

Thanks, I wanted something I could wear on a daily basis so indeed it couldn't be flashy or too expensive.

Wow, wow, wow, I like it alot. It's simple yet an eye-catcher.

I want to seize the day like you too.

J, the difference is that your Hub usually seizes the day with you :-)
