I've really enjoyed this tremendously and think that I learned more than I bargained for in the process. I learned that sometimes you can, in fact, have an idea in your head and actually execute it, but that it might take you a few tries and tweaks before you see it come to fruition. In my case, it was the colors that went sideways on me before falling into place. The design was there...I knew I wanted to do a "band sampler", but I really did think it was going to be a red, purple, and yellowish band sampler and not a rainbow sherbert band sampler.
Oh well...live and learn. Live and learn.
Today is going to be a quiet day here at the homestead. I have been feeling a bit punk and think I'm a quart or two low. (My kidney disease causes me to have anemia, so when my hemoglobin drops it's similar to the car needing an oil change.)
(Too bad I don't have a little indicator light on my dashboard that would tell me when it's time to go juice up!)
Never fear, however...some labwork and a big fat shot ot Aranesp later and all will be put to rights once again. In the meantime, I snooze and rest and think happy thoughts and encourage those little kidney beans inside me to keep hanging in there a little longer!
Stewey continues to play Patient to my Nurse Ratchett. He seems to be quite happy to let me cuddle him whenever necessary, and each evening plays a gentle game of spaceship with me while I toss Bosco a ball to fetch. (The spaceship is actually an interactive toy that I fill with food, and as Stewey noodges it about, pieces fall out and he eats a bit of dinner that way. Otherwuse, I'm afraid it would be all cookies, all the time around here!)
The mowers and landscapers are mowing and landscaping, the sun is shining on the garden, and all is calm and bright today so far...hope it is the same in your neck of the woods!
