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 blast trying out some of the ideas that will pop up in your mind and I am sure you will surprise yourself LOL!
Have a wonderful day.
