So... here is a sneak peek at the project I finished last night for a certain wee man on Sunday:
Today? well we have Kelly and Rena here, so I think we are going out for a lovely walk in the park... maybe an ice cream down at the mall too.
And I want to get back to my sewing at some point too. That Bird In Tree has heaps to be done before it's finished. I already have someone in mind for it, for their birthday too.
THEN I will be able to get back to my Dresden Plate Quilt. Yaaa... I'm looking forward to that.
DIET: Well.. it's been up and down the past couple of months, but I am trying hard to get back into the right frame of mind to put it first again.
Cos, it's all or nothing with me! It has been nothing for a bit too long.
It is so hard keeping up the motivation. Summer is here and I'm not where I really wanted to be, and that is just messing with my mind.
I know it is TOTALLY UP TO ME. But ...but.... and there should be NO BUTS. MY BUTT is far too big! I think once the kids are back at school I will be able to concentrate on me a bit more. And there will be less temptation around!
OH! Before I forget... VIC: Sweetie, if I 'adopted' you, you would be NUMBER NINE! Not 7. Remember, I've got 2 'bonus' kids already! lol
But, if you really want a surrogate MUM, I'm here for ya. And I'm not just saying that.
*sigh*... anyway... time to go. Stuff to do...
Oh my, it's a glorious day out there today. Everyone has gone walking except me. There is no way I can walk in that heat. I would melt after having a massive hissy fit! The hot weather combined with hot flushes? Nah, ain't gunna happen.
So... I will sew in my cooler garage. Awesome.
I just learnt something new...
- My nifty new ladder WILL slip on painted concrete.
- I can land on me feet like a cat!
- Everything DOES go in slow motion when something awful is happening.
- And if you are a bit 'cuddly' your ribs won't get broken when you land on them!
I just fell off the ladder downstairs trying to reach for a box. I am proud to say I didn't scream when my ribs connected with the freezer, or when my arm connected with the cubby shelves. My toes are not happy either, they slipped down the ladder ... it kinda hurt.
I've got the shakes right now, so am just sitting quietly pondering how many bruises I will end up with! A few I'm picking.
Oh and I really AM going to get my Medic Alert Bracelet this year. As I'm an 'internal bleeder', after that fall it might just be prudent to get it.
OUCHY ... SORE.
Well since that fiasco, I've recovered... and have been sewing for hours.
Time to take a break ... lie in the sun and hop in the spa pool to relax before making dinner.
My turn to cook *sigh*.
Oh, progress on Bird In Tree:
ABOVE: She's looking very nice. I added a bit more 'detail' than the original... like on the tree branch and cross hatching on the birdhouse. I am tempted to add 'something' more, just not sure what?
OK... the sun awaits...
And the sun and spa were wonderful! The kids and I are really loving being in the spa pool, I have it down low so it's just perfect for getting in and cooling down.
I'm feeling pretty battered and bruised now... aching all over really.
Stew asked me what I'd taken for the pain... and ummm... NOTHING? I didn't even think of taking something to help. What a twit.
So I've just taken some painkillers, hope they kick in soon cos I'm in a fair amount of pain.
There is a cracker jack bruise on my torso already, wonder if it looks even worse tomorrow?
I'll no doubt take a photo to show you tomorrow *smiles*.
End of Day: a lovely day, apart from the fall!
