Hello to all my bloggy friends. This has been one of those weeks that passed me by in the blink of an eye. I had so many things to do every day, that I didn't feel like I had progressed on any of my stitching goals! The allergies are getting a little better, but my eyes have not returned to normal. I feel like I could itch then right out of their sockets!
I'm putting in a plug for exercise. I've gotten outside to hike almost everyday this week, and it feels like I've ordered a new body. I can feel the sore muscles starting to relent, and be comfortable with the pain, and I actually look forward to that 45 mins of peace and quiet. Sometimes my hubby will go with me, but several times it's just been me and my Zune. I quite like it. The only thing that worries me a bit is the cougar that lurks in the mountains behind my house. Two years ago we had prints all over in the yard. The trail is open with very little shrubbery, so hopefully I would see one coming. What am I suppose to do if one starts to come? I've played that out several times in my mind. Would my whistle and pepper spray be enough to ward one off? I'm trying to not be too paranoid about it. I think they are more afraid of me, than I am of them. (That's what I'm telling myself!)
Anyhow, go out and get some walking in. It does a body good!
I got my "Angels O're this House" by Chessie and Me, back from my framer. I think it looks fantastic. The perfect frame for this piece. I decided to experiment with non- glare glass this time. I wasn't sure how that would turn out, but I really like it. I can see the piece from any angle, without the glare. I think I will add non-glare from now on. I didn't ask how much extra it it was. Probably a couple of dollars at most.
I went shopping on my B-day last week, and bought these new pillows for my front room Chinese chairs. I really love this turquoise blue right now. It's everywhere! I think it's my new favorite color. I love to pair it with red. Aren't those Kmart's color? I was laughing about that the other day, because when I was a teenager I thought that was the stupidest color combination in the world! Hunter Green and Plum, were my favs at the time. Now it's Kmart colors! Go figure.
My dear friend gave me this cute card and it went right with my new favorite color theme, so I put in a frame for my front table. It is just like the card says "So Fabulous".
This is a cute little decoration I found at JoAnn's of all places. I thought it would be cute to hang smalls from. I don't have any "beachy" type smalls at the moment, so I better look through my charts and find one! I'm working on Bent Creeks, "Summer Snapperland", which would be fun for this table. One more thing to "hurry up and finish!"
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Take Care friends!
