Saturday Sky with a Side of Stitching

Image
So after a full day of Facebook games on Thursday and a full day of movies on Friday, I'm getting a bit stir crazy.  However I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing, staying off my foot.  I found a project to work on and made some good progress on it.  Remember this guy??


It now looks like this.

I worked on it while watching episodes of The Chew,  Don't Be Tardy (a reality show that was better than expected.  Kind of like a car crash.  You know you shouldn't look, but you cant turn away.  Plus the husband is a football player and really pretty to watch), The Pioneer Woman and Skyfall. 

I was really tempted to add back stitch her face since she's a bit creepy looking w/o her features.  Maybe tomorrow.  Or maybe I'll pull out another project.

I had #1 Son take a pic of my sky.



It really was a pretty day.  I think we had a high of 70. 

Meanwhile my foot?  No difference at all.  I will be calling the dr first thing Monday morning.

The Foot Saga Continues

Back in October I mentioned I was having some foot issues.  And they continue.



Apparently whatever bit me back in September keeps rearing its ugly head.  I went to the dr over a month ago and the nurse practitioner didn't touch my foot.  In fact she barely looked at it.  She told me to soak it in Epson salts (which I still cant believe I didn't think of) and gave me a prescription that had four pages of side effects.  I nixed the meds but soaked my foot.  After one day I noticed a difference and within a week it was almost gone.  Fast forward three weeks and not only is the wound back, it's back with a vengeance!  I saw a different nurse practitioner and what a different that made!!  I had three different people look at my foot, it was cultured, I was put on a new antibiotic (apparently no one could figure out why I was put on the original, esp since it is part of the drug family I react to!) and they want me to see a podiatrist.  I've been told to stay off of it as mu…

Where'd She Go??

Why yes I AM still alive, thanks for asking!!!  It's been literally a month since I last posted.  In the 7 or so years of this blogging business, I have NEVER gone that long!!! 

I will try and remedy that.

What have I been doing this past month??  Too much.  I met up with Dee for a craft day and worked on a sock.  Nothing to show because it's the same sock I've been working on for months now.  I actually brought cross stitch with me, but I'm missing two pairs of reading glasses and I cant see the holes without them.  So no stitching for me! 


I also hosted our local ladies craft group and guess what?  I worked on NOTHING!  I was attempting to finish up cleaning my house (I failed, instead I made them feel good abt their houses), made some chili in the crock pot and sat and chatted with them until it was time to get #1 Son.

Marching band is coming to a close next week. 


We have one more competition out near Tampa and we will be done for the year.  The kids have done r…
