Well kiddies... all day long I have been trying to steer clear of blogging and well... here I am. I just couldn't do it. I'm in a great deal of pain from all the activity over the weekend and I expect that will be gone by next Tuesday, meanwhile I'm laying low and trying to stay put in bed. I had a nice relaxing day.
You know what that means for me though. I couldn't take the scraggly thin ends of my hair any longer and so I chopped them off and cut a bit of bangs in too. Seems it will grow for a year and come down to a single strand and I will have to whack it off again in hopes that it will get more healthy. I really need to take some hair supplements which I will begin to research here shortly. The hair is much easier to take care of and still falls below my shoulders which is good.
After that I took a long hot shower on my shower chair and relished the shorter... less tangly hair. What with wacking off all of the fizzy parts it was just WONDERFUL to wash. Then I picked out one of my favorite outfits which is a lovely old fashioned, vertically striped skirt. It's gored so the stripes come together in points. Of course I had to have my favorite top which is a silk one that I knit... it has floophy lace sleeves, velvet ribbon at the wrist and lace that hangs over my hands... so feminine. I love this outfit.
During my bed rest I listened to a book on my Ipod and knit on my KAL... MS19 clue 3, clue 4 comes out on Saturday but I can guess what it is so I will probably have it done by then. This to be able to get back to my Tibetan Clouds which I'm sorely missing!!!
Not at all like the days when I used to say I'd washed the house down inside and out... made shopping runs and 40 loaves of bread! HAHA but I'm happy to have at least gotten a shower in today. It's been a good day. I have to look at the positive and not dwell on the pain and being bed ridden and all. If I focus on the good ... good will be found.
Something that made me smile today... at one point, after I had dressed... I had the windows open and the breeze was wafting through my hair. I found myself completely and utterly content. No need to dwell on the pain and hurt.... rather to look for the good is best I can do some days.
So, I have been in bed all day and I look forward to being in bed all day tomorrow. BUT I hope to sleep all day long tomorrow. I have all this stuff I take (protein energizer, etc) to make me stay awake in the day. Well today I didn't take anything and I'm a hoping and a praying that I will be able to sleep all day long (off and on). So that come Friday I will be well enough to see my eldest and his girl.
Come to realize that I need to look into supplements that will help me with my frizzy, thin "I'm not going to grow and you can't make me" hair! :-) In my searching I came across something I LOVE and I just have to share it with you. Recipe software I used it and my virus scan didn't come up with anything. I LOVE this program. It's a shareware and so free to use. Then there's a database full of great homemade recipes of wonderful looking and sounding body care products. I LOVE THIS! I all all of the ingredients needed for a great many items and have been saving lip balm containers for a long time. For fun I put a body spray recipe card into the file and sure enough it popped right in there! Some of the stuff might be a bit off, I didn't have enough time to go through all of it but you are discerning and shouldn't have any trouble with that.
Another thing I love was this Jacquie Lawrence card that I got. Not sure if you will be able to see this or not but it's all 50 states flowers made up into a bouquet. How COOL is that!!
Mom and her girls after Dad's service.... nuff said. Have a great week.
