Okay you all know me by now, I cannot sit still and rest. Unless I am down for the count with the flu I can't rest. I am trying to be a good girl with my back but it isn't working. I actually think I need to be in excruciating pain in order to sit my behind down and rest. See those steroids I am taking are giving me a false sense of what I can do, and well to be honest I am paying for it today. In my defense I never, ever, get two or three days off in a row where I am home and I can get some things done. You know how one thing leads to another..... I will take Little Buddy outside and sit and knit while he walks around puttering with his walker. Ooops I see these things in the garage that need to be thrown out before the garbage gets collected. Soon I am organizing the shelves and tossing out things right and left. Hey, maybe I need a little shelf to put my work bags on now that I have cleaned a little area in the garage, I can get them off the middle of the floor....... Maybe Little Buddy and I should run to Target to find one, it is only a short trip, and I should try to see how I feel driving......
There has been a LOT of that going on here and I need to behave!
There has been decorating, no tree up yet but other Christmas themed decorations are up. I have decided that less is more this year. As you know this is not my favorite Holiday, I decorated my big mantle with lights and my Santa collection. I have a few other decorations up but that is it, the rest is staying up in the attic this year. I figure the less I put up the less I have to clean up come December 31. I am a scrooge through and through. Plus I just don't feel in the spirit this year, it has been a busy and emotional year for me, I think that I can go easy and no one will even notice but me!
Watering plants led to pruning and sweeping up all sorts leaves and dirt. How does this mess pop up so fast?
While at Target for the shelves for the garage another little sheep jumped in my basket, How cute is this little one up in my wreath? She is peering down at me while I type with a cute smile on her face.
After my ridiculously busy morning I did manage to sit and work on my Hitchhiker with a heating pack on my back. I am thrilled that Teresa decided to make this scarf and invited us all along for the fun. It is a little confusing in the beginning but after that it is a very fast knit. Come and join the fun.
There has been blog reading while drinking loads of tea. This is a treasure for me as my busy and crazy life does not allow me with as much time to do this on a regular basis. Yes that heat pack was strapped to my back all the while I was reading away, catching up on all of your happenings.
There is a bit of worry about this boy of mine, he has been awfully quiet lately. I started him on glucosamine tablets to help his bad hip. I wonder if that is upsetting his very fragile system. I will keep my eye on him that is for sure.
There has been playing with this little one who never, ever stops chatting. I remember when we were thrilled when he put three words together in a row. Now it is chat, chat and more chatting. He is very excited about the Christmas decorations, and he is going to ask Santa for a big boy red bike! I hope Santa is listening!!!!! While I was working with Little Buddy on Thursday, (no taking the Holiday off in our house), he stood up for 8 seconds all by himself. A world record for him! Before that we had only got to 4! I hope to make it to 10 soon and then maybe taking a step or two in my direction without a walker or canes. I think he deserves a big boy red bike don't you?
Today I am determined to be a bit more restful. No sweeping outside, no organizing the garage, climbing into the attic or on a ladder for decorating. or suddenly thinking I had to fix Little Buddy's hair which led to a hair cut and a floor to clean. I am going to be a good girl and get some Christmas decorations made. More glitter and glue, and you know what a mess that is so there just might be some vacuuming to do, but I will take it easy. There will be sitting with a heat pack on and playing with glitter. Oh and I hope there is a Christmas photo opportunity for Little Buddy in the schedule too.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
