I have no more progress to show.
No great words of wisdom to impart.
No interesting details or pictures of places I’ve traveled to to share.
I’ve settled into the blissfully normal routine of 6 weeks at home!
The massage yesterday afternoon was the best I’ve had in a long time --- I’ve been having issues with my hamstrings being way too tight, and it feels like there is a band of tissue in them that just won’t release—like tying a knot in a piece of elastic. It just doesn’t work as well.
My therapist, Judit ((Yes, that is no typo, there is NO H)) is from Hungary, and I just LOVE HER. When she talks to me I close my eyes and she sounds just like Eva Gabor! LOL! Didn't you just love her on Green Acres?!
Come to think of it, Judit is blonde too! But never mind, I love her accent, and I love her massages --- even if that hamstring work took me to tears.
After my massage, and a phone call from DH reminding me that HE wouldn’t be home for dinner – he was playing tennis in Greensboro with a co-worker--- I decided that an evening out to dinner by myself was just what I needed. I knew that if I went to that massage and came right home, I’d wind up back in the basement doing what I always do. SEW!
I already KNOW that we eat out far too much. I’ve been vowing to cut down, but this week was 3 evenings in a row! I am NOT eating out tonight, I swear. Monday was a quilt bee thing, Tuesday was because we were out running errands and by the time we got home to fix something it would be too late to eat dinner, and last night…well – sheer laziness on my part, and a longing need for hot n sour soup and mongolian grill, which DH doesn’t like at all. See! I can justify it all!
When I got home, one thing lead to another and before I knew it I had completely cleaned the kitchen top to bottom, and both bathrooms. What is up with that? At night? I could have been relaxing, sewing on a binding or something, but no ---something flips a switch and I just have to clean. Family knows to keep a wide berth when I’m cleaning too --- why is it that we don’t see things all the time? smudges, smears, little bits of this and that, until all it once it ALL becomes visible and we have to tackle it NOW?! At 9pm at night? Maybe it was a surge of hormones or something?
And this morning it hit me that not only did I have nothing really interesting to write about – but that tomorrow is FRIDAY and the next clue of the mystery is due! So guess what I’ll be spending the day doing today? I may get back to the baby quilt tonight ----
I’ve been asked by several of you if I will upload the directions for this when I’m done with it. I’m thrilled that you asked me, and yes I will! I’ve got plenty of irons in the fire right now, but I will write the pattern out at some time in the near future. I’ve already named it Story Time Stars ---because of the novelty fabrics, I think it will be perfect for story time. :c)
We’ve hit 118 people linking up to share their progress on Mystery Monday Link-Up, part 2! Check them out! Your chance to link up ends at midnight tonight! We’ll do the next round of Link-Ups starting NEXT Monday! ((Hasn’t this been fun?!))
Enjoy your Thursday, whatever you get up to! You know I’ll be here ---got stuff to be ready for you tomorrow!
