It's Monday again, and I'm not sure how that happened...
we have snow on the ground from a week ago, becoming an iceberg. People told us before we moved here that it's dry! Snow disappears without need for plows! No! Nope! Lies all around. Nope it piles up, the sun melts the top, it turns quickly to ice and bingo, with my slippery vertebra I am stuck in the house. Grrr. Anyway another round is due starting with rain, (more ice) then snow tonight. Yea!
I had a very difficult weekend as the Poodle son darted through my legs as if they were mere grass stalks to catch a running squirrel, and left me with a slipped sacrum. Didn't do much and couldn't sit to write this post.
It's a new day, I'm sitting, I'm typing. I am drinking coffee, looking out into a sunny snow covered back yard, the poodle is lying at the slider looking out at the same yard, holding his new ring toy. I have some leftover scrambled egg whites with cheese as I look at a googled image of a heart quilt I might make for V-day.
decide whether to beg for an appt with chiro, as treatment leaves me unstable in more pain for week.
|How did the kitchen towels form a mountain???|
Maybe write a post on the trip to the Indian and Southwest Art Fest, the book post on lots of checked out books to read, the latest quilting post since it's taking up a lot of creative time lately
Cleaning will have to take a back seat to letting my back settle down
Worry less, meditate more, chat with friends via phone
After hearing another story this weekend about two women doing the ancestry dna test and finding relatives, I want to finally send in my test. If I could find anyone related, it would do my spirit good to feel connected. I am adopted and the family was not nurturing, and now they are rejecting so... well, hope springs eternal. I was told my birth mother's name was Barbara Ann Wagner, 1st gen American from German parents. My birth father's name was Earl Cerrone (spelling may be different) 1st gen American from Italian parents.
People say family is everything... well I sure hope that is not the case...
Now that I'm using creams and potions to cope with dry skin, I do not like the feeling of cream under my fingernails from dipping fingers in little pots (the skin under my nails is the only area not dry at the moment!) I found this little scooper from testing a cream in a store, so I just love scooping out a tiny spatula of cream to use. I'm sure a friendly clerk will give you one or two to take home after you test something at a counter.
What is it with miniature things? I love them! And finding the right tool for a job!
As I said, I want to write a post for tomorrow on the lot of books I found during my last library visit.
At night, I've moved on to the latest in my tea house series by Laura Childs.
I'm enjoying the books I found at the library too. Review of those tomorrow
Doc Martin returned to PBS! Nobody told me! I found it one night, so we're enjoying the latest episodes. Also, Project Runway all stars started, missed the first episode, so have to go find it on HULU.
Watching Marie Kondo show on Netflix, and the Bachelor on ABC, This is Us is back, and New Amsterdam. I am watching Victorian Farm Christmas on youtube... the three historians who went back to live as 1830's folk on an English farm, are back to show how to celebrate Christmas in those days. things like how make candies, how to make a paper and wool quilt, etc. Also on ACORN is Lords and Ladles, 3 chefs recreating manor house meals in Ireland castles. Victoria returned, yea!
Amazing race should start soon, as does Good Witch.
And the live presentation of RENT is this week
I should be working on this year's Valentine quilt and might have a plan, but I am obsessed with my art quilt of cattails in snow. Every time I have a minute, I go into the piles of tiny scraps, and sew a seam, seeing the fabric picture grow. It's abstract so I am concerned with color and line primarily.
After the whole background is formed, I'll put it on the design wall, and decide where to applique the cattail bodies. Icing on the cake! Then the quilting will happen, creating texture and more line within the piece.
I liked a block a fellow blogger developed and shared a month ago... I made 8 little red and white blocks to go in a yearlong color study for the rainbow scrap challenge. I love using my little random scraps to form new fabric.
Milo's Week Ahead...
I plan to keep track of this new toy... I accidentally destroyed the yellow skin on the old one, heh heh but this one showed up in Mama's hand the other day, so I am keeping a close eye on it. I carry it from room to room, I don't leave it outside in the weather like I did with the last one, I want to take it for walks but the peeps make me leave it so I can hardly go for walks!
Oh and to-do.... play with some friends, eat more food than snow, and nap when I'm tired.
keep on trying...
I changed my settings to be more secure, and so far it's cut out some unwanted guests to the blog.
I went to Settings, changed to https
Let's just see how this week goes... sometimes life is like that... just keep going...
