I damned near took my ass to the ER last night. Luckily it wasn't appendicitis but I have a feeling I know what the diagnosis will be. It's treatable but just adds to my autoimmune issues. I'm just glad I was able to take the day off since working would have been damned near impossible. Am currently ensconced in my bedroom sitting area with my computer with a render going, my crochet and HGTV on as I zone out on Tramadol. I was going to work on a crochet pattern, I rarely have the time to do that but the tramadol isn't going to allow that type of concentration. I'll stick to trying to find some scifi inspiration. :)
They grow up so fast. It seems like just yesterday he was a headstrong little guy and now he's all grown up, owns his own home and lives 2000 miles away doing his own thing. If I don't accomplish anything else in this life I know we did well on these two perfect humans. :)
I'm having a lazy Easter Sunday morning. After working yesterday and moving some heavy boxes from the old house to the new, my arthritis was acting up this morning and moving was a bit painful. Had I got up earlier to stretch and do a bit of yoga it would have helped but I didn't and I'm sure God will understand.
I haven't updated my gallery in almost a year. It's actually been a busy one for me. Knee surgery, recovery, moving, trying to sell a house and this winter was (is?) a difficult one. February was 3 weeks of no power, running out of water, freezing my ass off.... real fun. Can't wait for summer.
Anyway, I've got a couple new images in the gallery and I'm working on uploading a few designs to a book cover website. I haven't been promoting anything and I feel like getting back into my artwork. Getting back to making a few bucks with it again would be a good thing. :)
There's snow in the forecast but we've had a few warm days including this last weekend where I practically lived outside on my deck. (It was heavenly!) I'm ready to start getting the yard in shape and maybe grow some cilantro and onions on my railing planters. I've had some Sweet Grass Fragrance oil infusing since the holidays and it's beginning to smell wonderful. It has me planning a trip to the lavender farm at the end of May and making a batch of Lavender fragrance oil. :)
"In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours."
....because I'm getting really tired of winter. I swear I've been sick for most of January and I spend most of my time huddled near the fire or the heater when I'm home. What I wouldn't give for a nice warm day on the golf course. (sigh)
My neighbor liked his San Francisco Giants scarf that I made for him as a thank you for watching the dogs and our place when we were gone. He said to watch for him wearing it at the next televised game. :)
Now my husband wants one with Yankee colors and logo. He doesn't even wear scarves. :)
Got my hot chai, got Andrea Bocelli's Holiday channel on Pandora, got a project on my hook... must be winter. :)
So I'm thinking that leg warmers need to make a come back. Or have they already and I just haven't seen them much? Regardless, I'm thinking I need to crochet a pair for myself as cold as it's been getting. And they would look so good with my slouch boots and poncho. Not to mention just wearing around the house with leggings and warm socks. Yeah, I definitely need to search out some crochet leg warmer patterns or come up with one of my own. :)
I have so many projects in the works though that they may have to wait until closer to Christmas though. I'm trying to finish my daughters Mermaid Tail Blanket that she wants. I'm following Nadia's tutorial on Yarn Utopia and I'm almost finished.
And speaking of kids I'm so proud of mine. My son is off in a new career and is purchasing his first home all on his own and at such a young age. I raised b...
So for all two of you who read here (Hi Mom), I've changed the gallery a bit. Now I can add commentary and links if I want.
Nothing really new to add. I've been working on my Christmas card and this year's theme is "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa." Gone are the days where I could insert my kids into a Christmas scene. Both are grown now so I'll have to wait for grandkids to do that again. And I've been crocheting quite a bit, hoping to add to my Etsy store soon.
