More Spring Goodies

I told you yesterday that I had been working on another paper mache figurine and eggs.  I finally got my son to bring up all my finished products from the basement.  Although don't tell him that I had been up and down the basement stairs 3 times yesterday.  I didn't figure out until the last time how to carry something upstairs.  I was determined to do laundry yesterday.  This makes me feel useful and non-lazy.  Going down stairs isn't difficult.  I just hop on my right leg down the stairs holding on to the wall and the hand railing.  It is then 8 one footed leg hops to the washing machine. Yes... I counted them. LOL.  I'm going stir crazy and have to keep my brain functioning. :-)  Where there is a will there is a way to get your laundry upstairs because your son is at driving school, you need a shower and need more sweat pants, and your daughter claims to not be feeling well.  Next time you do your laundry and your washer and dryer are in your basement try this... stand on one foot... fill your laundry basket with clean clothes... now bend over and push the clothes basket with your hand across the floor to your steps as you hop behind... now turn around sit on your butt on your steps... scoot all the way over closest to your hand railing... reach down and pull the basket up beside you on the step... use one arm and one leg to push and pull yourself up to the next step without letting your foot touch the step... reach down pull your basket up beside you... now do this all the way to the top of the stairs... at the last step push your basket all the way up to the floor... now try to figure out how to get up from the seated position on the steps using one leg and two arms and two crutches that are waiting for you.  I was one hot sweaty mess when I was done to say the least. LOL... I am sure there will be more adventures as time goes on so stay tuned...  I did have the adventure of changing my bed hopping on one foot. Try it and see how that goes!!!!

OK back to what I was working on... I got these items finished up recently.  I was working on a few more items today but my sister called and asked if I would go to lunch at Applebee's today.  It is the first venture out to a restaurant since my accident.  It went pretty smoothly and there was no ice or snow in the path I chose. I got home smoothly and my sister then made me some pickled eggs and beets.  Mmmmmm....

Alright... I quit talking and start showing pictures now... Enjoy!!!!

Still one available for immediate shipment!!! Check out my website to order $18 plus shipping

All of my eggs sold within and hour or so of posting them with additional orders!!!! I am beyond thrilled especially with being off work and not getting paid :-)

Large eggs painted like red ware and yellow ware 

Small pastel decorated Easter eggs

Small pastel plain Easter eggs

Small yellow ware and red ware eggs

So you can see the difference in size of the big and small ones.

So, I am now feeling better and spent some time painting today.  I have someone bringing dinner tonight from my parent's church for us and a meeting at the school for my son for his Spring trip to TN with his Earth Science Club.  The best part is I owe nothing for the trip.  He earned all the points and money to go.  Luckily they have an elevator as I don't really want to navigate that many stairs tonight.  

Come back tomorrow as I will hopefully be able to post after my doctor's appt. For those who have a strong stomach I invite you.  Those who don't you might not want to join me tomorrow. ;-)  I will have graphic pictures up tomorrow of my surgical scar.

Oh Mary what a task! I know exactly what your going through, although mine wasn't broke I have a bone tumor removed and couldn't even set my foot down for a second! I have two daughters that are disabled and were very young, so I totally get the slide on the butt and the
" make do" maneuvers ! Moore you heal real quick and can't wait to see the pics! Haha. LOVE the eggs!

Oh how I feel for you sweetie! I injured my foot/ankle falling off a painting platform in our basement and it was the worst pain I've ever experienced in my life. I too learned the butt slide up and down the stairs and how many hops was involved in getting from my bedroom to the bathroom.
