4 Days Off in a Row!!!!!

Today is my fourth and final day off in a row. I traded off today as my kids have a school choir concert tonight. I have done quite a bit and that is why I haven't been on.

It all started Friday night... We had yet another snow storm that day. I came home from work and got out of my car to move Steve's truck out of the way so I could get in my garage. Next thing I knew I was on the ground. Luckily, I have a little extra padding in the hip area. LOL. I fell on my left hip and side on the icy pavement. I did all the checks in my mind and decided it was safe to move, but man was I hurting. I came in ate watched some TV and went to bed.

Day 1 off...

I awoke very early to my mid back spasming. Oh man I could not get comfortable in bed at all. I could not roll over or get out of my bed very quickly. Finally dragging myself out of bed for Ibuprofen and coffee I was able to move. My son went to his Dad's on my weekend since his Dad was sick last weekend. I also had it made out I could have parental visits with this guy... He lives with my ex since I can't technically have pets. (Don't mind the mess) LOL



This is my black lab who is 10 years old. I miss him so much. Anyway, I get him all weekend.

I kept seeing my quilt I never finished from fall. I thought you know what I need to get it done and cross it off my list. So day one I finally quilted the border piece. Took a few more Ibuprofen as the day went on. I also got a request from a follower out in blog land that wanted a few of those rabbit wax melts I made the other day to have on her website. So I said sure and got to work on them. Grrrr.... they were not working to save my life.



Day 2...

I read my quilting book on how to put a border on my quilt and got to work. Yep it took almost all day. LOL. Finally, it is done... For my first quilt I think it came out pretty good!!!





Yep still fighting my back pain and now a head cold too. GRRRRR.... I also worked on those darn wax melts. Still giving me fits!!!!

Day 3

Make over Monday...

Alright I will get these darn wax melts if it kills me!!!!! This too was an all day affair but... here they are... Look no shiny butts!!!! LOL Ewwww bad picture anyway they are dark blue. After I talk with the lady and know when she will put them on her site I will let you all know if you are interested.



I also have had this wood candle tray for years. Of course I bought it in blue because I just loved country blue in years past. Not so much now. It also had two rusty stars glued on the sides. But now just any stars, but ones with pointy edges that stuck up above the edge of the box and poked you every time you put your hand near it. Sorry I already pulled off the stars prior to pics.





Like I said I'm really into brown now a days so this was no exception. This is prior to primming...



This head cold is really bugging me now along with my back. UGGHHH...

Day 4...

Still can't get out of bed because of my back. Man it still hurts. I need to go to the chiropractor, but you know how that goes... A little more Ibuprofen never hurt anyway right? LOL

It is 11:00 as I type and I took my dog back to my old homestead. Bittersweet as I went into it to drop him off. My paint colors, and brick flooring, and stripped wood door, and (sigh)... Sorry... Anyway, dropped him off then had to meet the EMS chief to give him my radio to have it fixed. Now I'm home and need to get my house cleaned before the kids come home and tear into it. LOL. I am so trying to make time to visit all of you and I promise I will as I miss all of your updates.

Geesh, you made me tired reading all you accomplished, but glad you had a few days to do what you wanted and needed to do. Love the quilt-those are some of my favorite colors too.
Hopefully you folks won't get any more snow and can start to what spring has in store for you.
Have a great day and take care.
