I am a not too happy person at the moment!

Goodmorning everybody!

Quick update of our weather, it's not all too bad, it's some rain, some sunshine, sometimes a bit too much wind, temps around 48-50C, all together we cannot complain.

Monday I suddenly had the spirit! Gosh, in the morning I first did my post on this blog, then did some designing, and then got dressed.
Took a bucket, filled it with water and cleaning liquid, and started in the toilet/bathroom.
Took out the things like a matt, littlelitter bin,etc. and gave all a real thourough clean!
Before putting back all, that had to undergo some cleaning too, and as I still was in "the mood" also gave the hallway a sweep with the mob. IAnd after that was done I felt myself a happy person!Yeah, it felt good.
So I took a little break, and saw the sitting room coffeetable could do with a cleaning too, so I did that too, but when I put back the bottle the glass cleaning product, suddenly felt in my back  a "PING", and yes, probably stretched a muscle, and oh my, hardly could come up straight again. Damm!!
Just when I was so happy I did a good job, and even was in the mood to do a bit more, THIS happens again!
So the rest of the day, as you can imagine, I took it real easy. as long as i sat on the couch, in almost 90 degree postion, as straigh as I could, I had not too much trouble. But standing up or bowing forward to take my cup of coffe, eeeeeeeekh, not nice!
Okay, went to bed, hoping it would be better next day.
And was it? Not very much. I did have to do some shopping, so slowly got dressed, and then went out. I thought that may be being straight up and walking a bit, could be a good thing for my back.
Well, I survived the shopping, it went rather well, only the hard part was, taking the products out of the shelves when they were placed on the lower ones LOL!
Home again I started out in the kitchen, preparing for dinner already( we had a hotchpotch of onion and carrot, all mixed with potatoe mash(Jan likes it a lot, it's not my favourite one, but okay).
after that I sat down, pffff, that was good!
Still the back didn;t coorporate a lot.
But when I got up this morning, it still was a bit difficult, but... it feels somewhat better. Still have to move very careful, cause sometimes get such a nice "pang" in the back.
I think it will take a couple of days more, to get rid of it completely(well, I hope so).

So here we have a wonderful couple, both with back trouble. Life is full of surprises ROFL.

Somewhere spring is just around the corner. I can tell by our cat Brodski. He is going out a bit more and for a little longer time. Still a very lazy cat, who likes to settle himself down on a chair and sleep for hours!
I can forget about doing some work in the garden now that it's not too cold anymore, with that damned back of mine. But we really should go out there and do some cleaning and pruning and re=potting soon, cause with that very soft, almost no-winter, weather all is going so fast there!
Perhaps next week all is better and may be there will be some days, or moments of them, that with a coat or thick sweater it will be possible to stay out for a while and take up gardening again.

That's about all for now. I have a kit for you, and with clusters from Arlene( didn;t hear from her yet, after her message about her new computer, understandable, because it always is a lot of work, even when all goes smoothly), and it is named Enjoy Little Things.
 I tried my hand on a bit of art journal digiscrap design, I came across a very great website, where there is a lot of explaining and tutorials about digital art journaling and scrapping and also about using mixed media. It isn't as simple as it looks, and I don;t always like all I see, but there are some wonderful things done with it! Most difficult about it, I think, is forgetting all about "traditional scrapping and designing". Well I give you the link to that website and I am sure it will be interesting. Just hop over and take a bit of time to read and look, perhaps it will inspire you in your scrapping!

Have a wonderful day.

Oh dear, Kyra. I'm so sorry to hear about your back. Gosh, I surely do hope that it is better real soon. If not, have it checked before it gets too much.

Spring is definitely on its way. There are lots of little green shoots springing up from the ground here. I imagine your garden will be coming to life soon. Oh happy day!!

You take care of yourself, and don't overdo my friend. Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Aww...Kyra..so sorry about your back.:( Jim and I also have back problems and it seems once you pull a muscle..it is so much easier to do it again. Try ice and heat on it.Alternately. We also have those long grippers that you can get to help reach things in the cupboards..only we use them to pick stuff up from the floor when our backs go out. Seems we tend to drop things more during those times..or at least..notice them more.:)

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely kit!:)

We have a busy day today. Starting out early and won't get done until after noon.So much for slowing down when we get older.LOL

Huge hugs my friend!

Good Morning! O M G! I can't believe I was 3 posts behind...I am so happy the Olympics are over, now I can get off the couch or chair or bed and do something besides watch TV...ROFL! They were great though and your Dutchies did wonderfully! Lots of skating trophies. Yes, you bobsled did a good job too, for a while I thought they would medal, but finished in 4th. Thanks for all the kits and the the freebies from Arlene too. I appreciate your visit and the comments. Hope your back is well soon. So glad I caught up with you, now need to do a little more catching up and then brave this cold weather to go get some cat food...they are eating me out of house and home...LOL (not really and I love all of them)! Hugs, Mat

Poor Kyra, now both with back troubles... I really feel sorry for you. Maybe you should leave you blog for a few day and take care of yourself. Hope you will sleep well. I wish I could send you a little bit of sun, but here it's raining and temperatures are colder... so I send you an enormous THANK YOU for all your fabulous kits (the papers are terrific !!).
Merci Kyra et Arlene !
Hugs,
Florence

We haven't had too much rain in our part of California this Winter season, so I'm looking forward to the rain that has been fore-casted. Hope you are feeling better.

I'm sorry to hear about the back. Did you try 15 mins of cold and then 15 mins of heat. That sometimes works for me. Mine is in the bones...the big pelvis to be exact-called Osteo Penia. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for the new kit and Arlene's clusters. They look lovely.

Hope your back is better soon. I have one of those incline boards so I can hang upside down to straighten my back out. I love the peacock background on your blog. Thanks for the freebie.
