Monday babbles

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I recorded the men's road race and watched it Saturday while shelling beans. The Hubs had the great idea of planting lots and lots of beans for drying in the garden this year. All I have to say is that my left thumb feels like it's been pounded on and that was just one row. He canned 7 quarts of them and they look so pretty. Soup beans and cornbread, a Southern tradition!

I'm beginning to think I need someone here to poke me to get me started on my projects. There is so much to do. I would really like to do a thorough housecleaning but I can't clean like I used to. Now it is clean the bathroom fixtures, go sit down, sweep or vacuum the floor, go sit down, move to the next room and dust, go sit down. It is really unnerving to try to do things I use to do without even thinking about it and now to have to plan when and how much I can do. If I push too far, then I'm out of commission for 2-3 days so nothing is ever done start to finish. I guess it could be worse. I could not be able to do anything and that would literally drive me up the wall.

House cleaning aside, there are my crafty projects. I'm starting to get long stares from the yarn for the baby blanket. It seems to say, "Why did you buy me if you were just going to let me hang out in this bag?" I took it out Friday and looked at the lovely colors and said to myself that I need to get a picture of these colors all together and then I put them back in the bag and said, "Later". Procrastination, anyone?

Ah well, it's a new week and a new chance to get started. Wish me luck. Maybe by the end of the week, I will have figured out how to post pictures and actually have some to show. I'm off now to do some work in the office.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a good day wherever you might be.



  1. Poke, poke, poke - is that better? At least thinking about your projects is a good start. You're not the only one who has many 'things' on the go. Join the club. They'll get done someday - maybe!

  3. OH, Sharon can I ever relate to you!!! I have 2 chronic diseases...Rheumatoid and Graves disease although I rarely admit it because I don't like to be a "victim" of anything but I get mad at myself at times and frustrated because I can't get as much done as I used to but I am persistent and just keep plugging away! I also have invested in some things that help my robotic vacuum! LOL! I take lots of breaks like you but you need to pat yourself on the a keep getting back up and you're still in the ring! Take care of yourself and don't be too hard on yourself! We'll cheer for each other! You Go Girl!
