I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Wacky Wednesday !!!!
Continuing .. Yesterday was another quiet day .. mom called with a small grocery list ..and she told me that her pharmacy called, and she can get delivery .. She always could but it was an extra charge .. but for now, she said she would be happier with it, so I don't have to stand in line of others .. (I would have gone through the drive through anyway) .. but for now .. this works .. We're trying to create a plan here .. and it seems to be working ..
Hubby went to the grocery yesterday ... and brought home a 9 pack roll of TP !!!WOOHOO !!!! Never thought I would be excited about TP .. even though I told him I had a plan in case it didn't happen and we ran out ..
So -- hubby will probably go and get mom's groceries today, otherwise I told him I would do it on Sunday, and asked mom if she had enough to last her until Sunday .. and she said yup --- so we're safe .. I also explained to her, that we would try our hardest, because some of the things she's asking for .. cereal, bread .. is pretty NOT available .. down to a rotisserie chicken .. so she understands .. but knowing hubby .. he's going to try hard ..
Me .. I spent the day pretty much in my playroom, getting up every hour, getting my steps in .. I'm happy to say that I got my 10 hours of 250 (plus) steps yesterday .. I actually am starting to start the habit of putting on my shoes and socks; and wearing them until after my 6:00 challenge .. that's the last one of the day .. kinda like when I was at work, even though I would sometimes kick my shoes off under my desk .. lol and it's worked out great .. I wear my Sketchers, and they have the support my feet need .. I walked out to the mailbox, missed my destination, and walked until the end of the court, back to the mailbox, and then around the back side of the circle, and back to the house .. it gave me some fresh air ... and I LOVED it .. The good news is these cloudy, dreary days are making me not crave going outside ...
I played up in my playroom .. and worked on something new .. the horses in my head are starting to pop foals .. and I thought "hey .. I've got some time ... lots of time *rolling eyes here* ... let's really sit down and do a picture" and happily I ended up with my mare, and her foal, and a scenerie in the background .. a full scenerie ..
After that .. I tried Toby again .. and I'm getting closer .. the only thing I needed to fix on this one was the nose .. but we're getting there .. :)
I ran into a challenge after that .. and decided to call it, and come downstairs to just veg in front of the TV for a bit .. I'm proud of myself, I haven't plunked myself in front of the tv, and vegging all day, every day .. I couldn't think of anything that I wanted to draw .. and while I have lots of "wanna do's" that I could turn to .. I'm enjoying this too much .. but know that I do have backup .. I went upstairs after my 6:00 walk around the house, and looked at a blank sketch sheet .. and thought .. "you know .. I can't seem to go and see the eagles .. I'm going to bring the eagles to me .. :) "
Then I held my breath and darkened him a bit ..
Not perfect, but another "new" ..
Today will probably be more of the same .. I have alot of pictures to work with .. so I won't run out of "examples" .. and when my drawing enthusiasm dissipates; I have more than enough other things to play with, I can work on a quilt, I can finish my baby blanket I was crocheting, I can work on sorting out my photos in my computer, I can work on my cards, I can learn more about my computerized cutter, I can experiment with all the things that I had bought years ago, for "when I have time" *loud gaffaw here* .. I have paint by numbers that I had bought a long time ago, I have tons of coloring books, I have a 1000 piece puzzle that I'm still working on and have 2 other puzzles that I can play with after it's done .. (and that's all besides the normal everyday chores ... )
I just keep thinking about .. the money that I put in Beauty to clean out all the mouse seed storages, and she's just sitting quiet in the garage .. *sigh* ..May just have to take her out for a bit of a ride occasionally just to keep her happy .. Only me, and my car .. and nobody else .. There are parks that are open, just the buildings are closed .. so I can still get out and about .. just keep people's away from me .. playgrounds are closed, because of close proximities ..
What are YOU doing during this time of "entertaining oneself" .. Are you helping your children with projects ? Are you catching up on your reading? Are you trying some new recipes? I hope whatever you are doing .. you are trying to enjoy each day of indecision ...
Wishing everyone a wonderful wacky Wednesday .. Stay safe, stay happy, stay healthy!!!!
