I think it turned out cute! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/80fd50fa-2674-459e-a72c-e50ab0478b68.jpg"> Thu, 3 Nov 2016 14:00:45 EST Another commission http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6259571 This is another commissioned item I just finished. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/a90a7225-cbce-4cc4-bc99-28a159de8a60.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/76866e43-2845-4791-a5eb-d12c3af5521f.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 31 Oct 2016 02:33:07 EST Newest creation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6236516 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/b89b0d3c-7cb6-404f-922a-6910c14990f0.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/d4ebad28-ab9e-46c4-84ba-61275a50e7c2.jpg"> Thu, 15 Sep 2016 20:58:57 EST Proud of Myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6232549 I decided that I wanted to have my own beauty blog, and I went ahead and did it. Three posts in, and I'm actually building a following! I'm very excited about it. There aren't a lot of blogs for or by women my age, unless they're talking about children and anti-aging. Those things are all well and good, but not the complete focus of anyone's life. I don't have kids, and I don't want to live my life paranoid about every little line or spot. I still get pimples for pete's sake! lol Thu, 8 Sep 2016 22:44:27 EST Finally budged again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6204660 So my scale finally budged again. Down .4lb. Big whoop, right? Actually it is. After weeks of it climbing for no reason I can fathom, it's going back down. I think it's because of the one med I was on.I haven't gotten it refilled since I ran out. It wasn't making any difference in my pain level anyway. Something to tell the dr. <BR> Fri, 22 Jul 2016 02:22:24 EST Crazy Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187288 So I decided I'm going to try and get myself on some sort of schedule. Even if all it does is get me out of bed in the morning and into a chair downstairs, so be it. I've set quite a few alarms for myself, so that if I start napping accidentally, an alarm will go off, assuring that I don't sleep the whole day away. I write everything down, or I forget. Increased my meds on schedule again, now I'm super drowsy again, and having dizzy spells. A friend of mine said her husband went through the s... Wed, 22 Jun 2016 00:41:40 EST Not into it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6184142 My new meds have me hungry all of the time, and I've been giving in. So, I gained back the weight that I'd lost. Add to that the fact that I just don't feel up to proper meal prep most days, and we have a recipe for disaster. I made a nice salad for lunch today, and by the time I was done prepping it, I lost all motivation to eat it. I think I need to retool my meal plan, find foods to get excited about. Time to cruise the recipe section and my WW cookbooks, I guess. Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:19:06 EST So incredibly angry. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6164964 So, last night while I was getting my meds ready for the morning, I left my reading glasses on. As I put the two separate doses in my hand, I noticed writing on the pills. So I looked at the writing. Then I compared the pills in each bottle, to what the bottle is labeled as. <BR> So, for the past 2 -4 weeks, when I thought I was dispensing a 30mg pill of active thyroid hormone, it was a 60mg. When I thought I was dispensing a 60mg, it was a 30mg. <BR> So when I was taking 2 60mg pills (120mg)... Tue, 17 May 2016 15:37:42 EST Singing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163016 I'm so happy! I found a karaoke app. I didn't realize how much I missed singing until I started again. I saved a few songs, but I'm not totally happy with them. I need to practice more. <BR> <BR> <link>www.smule.com/recording/anna-kendric<BR>k-cups-when-im-gone/686660623_385535914 </link> <BR> <BR> <link>www.smule.com/recording/yazoo-only-y<BR>ou/686660623_385655815 </link> <BR> <BR> Hope you like them. Sat, 14 May 2016 20:24:59 EST Exciting times! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162359 So, I won a contest, where you get $250 toward craft items. I don't know if you've been following my blog posts or not, but I have a LOT of crafting items! lol <BR> So, I ordered a dress form for myself! I also got a few bobbins for my boats shuttle, and a band shuttle for my inkle loom (that I got for free!). <BR> I also got in a couple of items that I got online for a friend of mine for her birthday. <BR> <BR> It's been an eventful mail week! <BR> <BR> Having the dress form is going to m... Fri, 13 May 2016 19:37:16 EST Cleaning day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6159058 So today, I decided to clean out my fridge. Tomorrow is garbage day and when they pick up the compostables. Seems like a sensible thing to do, right? <BR> Cleaning out the freezer was really difficult when you have pain in the places I have pain. I managed to get the freezer and fridge compartment all done. The freezer is even organized now! There were a lot of breaks taken! <BR> I still have the door to do, but since that's mostly recyclables, I can do it tomorrow. <BR> Still have to throw o... Sun, 8 May 2016 23:22:18 EST Oh carbs, how I love to hate thee! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6154388 So, I know I'm a carboholic. To that end, I've been taking in slightly less carbs than my tracker says I need, and increasing my protein by that amount. Seems to be working. <BR> You know how sometimes you just get a craving and nothing else will do? <BR> Buttermilk pancakes. <BR> Yes, tonight's supper was buttermilk pancakes, because anything else just wouldn't do. Now i feel tired and bloated. I guess that's my reminder to stick with my plan, regardless of what my cravings say - unless my c... Sun, 1 May 2016 23:32:39 EST It's moving! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6150387 My turtle is moving! So far I'm down 7.2lbs since Feb.19th. Not bad for someone who can't exercise. <BR> <em>521</em> Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:40:12 EST I'm enthused! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6139271 Just got a great deal on a set of oil pastels, new in box, on a local garage sale site here. I've been colouring as an adult long before this current craze swept the world. I've always believed it to have theraputic properties. This just takes things a step further for me. I'm not much of an artist when it comes to drawing stuff that looks like actual things, but I do love to play with colour. I've always had a thing for oil pastels, the way they feel, smell, the way the colour can be satura... Sun, 10 Apr 2016 17:12:35 EST So upset! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6136732 So, got to go away with hubs this weekend. <BR> Sounds great, huh? <BR> Nope. Ended up staying someplace with bedbugs. I am bit to PIECES!!! I'm allergic to most biting bugs, so I'm covered in welts. Disgusting. So now i have to try and keep them out of my house. <BR> Unpacking the car involved grabbing my medications and toiletries. Everything else is in black bags, still in the car where hopefully the heat will help kill anything. <BR> Wed, 6 Apr 2016 23:39:11 EST Learning : Tunisian Crochet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6127743 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/7ec5386b-0b37-4eab-a9eb-e55858eb4aef.jpg"> I love learning new yarn techniques!

I was happy that it stopped going up, finally, but down is infinitely preferable. <BR> In an enormous amount of pain, and just waiting for the drugs to kick in. Had a nice long soak in the tub with hot water and lots of epsom salts. now my legs are rubbery, but not as sore. Did nothing for my back and hip though. <BR> Oh well, going to have a nice light lunch then see if I can get a coupl... Thu, 17 Mar 2016 16:09:51 EST What a day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6121065 Got my errands done, and hurt like a bugger after. Then, I was resting at home, waiting for my meds to kick in (can't have them if i need to drive), and my gf called to surprise me by taking me for a pedicure. It was very nice. We normally have fun, but this was great! <BR> I totally went overboard last night. I ordered pizza, and I don't know why I was so hungry, but I ate the whole thing! I felt so terrible after, but I had a couple of glasses of water, and I knew I'd have some hobbli... Wed, 16 Mar 2016 23:50:34 EST Feeling Low http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6116374 So, been talking with my physiotherapist, kinesiologist, physio coordinator, and my case worker (tomorrow). Seems like they just want to get me to find another job, a seated job, so they can say they did their jobs. What about the pain I'm in all the time? When does that get addressed? The thought of living the rest of my life with this pain is NOT appealing, I can tell you. I just have to remember to mention it to my case worker tomorrow. I don't feel like my quality of life is being address... Thu, 10 Mar 2016 22:25:48 EST Oh me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6106947 My legs are killing me today. <BR> I did 5 minutes on my new recumbent bike yesterday. I hurt to begin with, adding exercise pain is a bit much lol. I will persevere though. When I consider how much I've gone through already... this is a blip, nothing more. <BR> Been working on my crafts. Almost done 4 more comfort dolls. They are so fun to make and so fun to give. They always make people smile with their quirky expressions and cuddly bodies. <BR> My physiotherapist has told me that I n... Sun, 28 Feb 2016 17:25:19 EST I'm so excited!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6105809 I found a recumbent exercise bike for $25 on the local garage sale site! My gf sent her husband to help me pick it up. My doctor, physiotherapist, and kinesiologist agree that it's a great idea. Might not be able to do more than a few minutes at a time, but it's something!

Sat, 20 Feb 2016 04:06:39 EST Soda Stream http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6098438 So, a gf of mine gifted me with a Soda Stream machine. Pretty cool device. Fill your bottle with water, screw it onto the base, press however many times you want for your optimum carbonation level. Point of fact, I don't use any of the flavour syrups. <BR> I'm not a huge fan of drinking plain water unless it's ice cold. So I know I haven't been drinking as much as I should. A lot of my "water" intake is in my tea and juice as well as water from the jug in the fridge. For a while now, I'v...

The round multi-colour hasn't said anything to me yet, but the Lilac Wine Multi (on the right) is begging to be a shrug or cowl. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/e8192406-1668-43f1-a059-5d4794477317.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> The two small ones will go with another couple of skeins to make a shrug. I'm waiting on one more yarn to go with them. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid...

Sat, 30 May 2015 23:58:37 EST I'm getting orders! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5936351 I've been sharing pictures of my projects on my Facebook page, and I'm starting to get orders! I had a lady order two hats in different colours. I love making this pattern, it works up so quickly and is such a nice hat! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/ea5e3812-23b6-49b2-8bb4-1f2d8ed319bd.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/33ef6153-e600-4afc-a3fb-f794d17a03a4.jpg"> Fri, 29 May 2015 15:33:17 EST
