I didn’t post a Sunday Salon last week due to my ill health. Thankfully I’m getting back on track.
Health Note: I’m finally starting to feel like myself again. I’ve been off pain medication for almost a week now and I haven’t felt like taking any for a few days. My constant headache has abated yet it hasn’t completely left me. Overall I have had more energy, less fatigue, and less severe mood swings. My next goal is to get back on an exercise regiment. My last walk about killed me, so I should start slow. I’m thinking 15-30 minutes on the stationary bike and then adding in the elliptical/treadmill/weights/more bike.
Listening To: I’ve added 8tracks to my phone and iPad. It’s like Pandora but people submit playlists. I have been checking out all kinds of weird/fun sounding lists. I only wish that I could see the entire playlist before playing…
Book finished: The Subtle Knife; The Amber Spyglass; Northanger Abbey
Reading: Much Ado About Nothing
On the Nightstand: Lots of Shakespeare
Making Lists: Grocery lists. After weeks of not really eating and not feeling like cooking, we had no food in the house to make any meals. I spent a ridiculous amount of time creating a grocery list. Once I went, I was left with a full fridge and comically long receipt.
From the kitchen: Besides prepping for actually cooked meals for the coming week, I washed out most of the fridge.
On the Web: I got back into the habit of checking out other blogs.
Farmer’s Market Finds: Made it in time to grab some of my favorite seller’s nectarines, raspberries, and sausages for lunch. I plan on using the nectarines and raspberries for hand pies and the rest of the nectarines for my yummy bacon, gouda, nectarine sandwiches.
Crafting: I have been a crafting maniac lately. I reorganized by crafting stash. I separated out all the Christmas stuff to make cards. I scrapped a ton of pages checking the boys up with me. I finally finished the Disney trip. I had a great card class before my medical emergency. Very cute things. The last one is actually thank you card from my Stampin’ Up demonstrator.
And I had a Christmas card themed class today. Great ideas for my own cards.
Finally I grabbed this idea from A Turtle’s Life for Me. Originally I was going to make it for the baby’s nursery to use to record notes and feedings. Obviously that’s not going to happen. But I thought I would make it anyway for the boy’s room.
Watching: Children’s Hospital (way to funny and full of people); The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret; White Collar; Suits; and tons more Stargate (SG1 and Atlantis)
From Nature: It’s been a bit cooler around here lately; definitely helping my walking and sitting outside
Shopping Scores: I grabbed some more clearance items at Michael’s. Some of them were for my mystery Christmas project. Loving how it’s turning out.
Project: I restarted my project of prepping my blog for the rest of the year. I want to get posts scheduled or at least templates readied.
