Flare/Food/Fun in the Yard
I thank each and everyone of you
for the comments on my health.
Yesterday I felt some better, did not
force and do anything though.
Today so far I am feeling ok.
A Fibro Flare as they are called
can last from a day to whenever. When
I was working for the TBI it was a really
stressful time and my flare lasted a whole
years. When I say flare that means the
the pain is intense, even more wide spread,
unpredictable as to where that pain
decides to strike and for how long it
will hold its ground in that area, or if
it will be new pain in a different area everyday.
Fatigue and totally living in a fog of not
being about to think straight or concentrate.
I felt this one coming, I normally have
signs if I pay attention long enough
to see them. Like dropping everything I
pick up, and stumbling like a drunk person.
On days that I am in a
fog I am like a total space cadet. I do
stupid things, I forget from one moment to
the next (worse than your normal person),
and you can sit and talk to me then ask them
what you said and I have no clue. My conversation
however is all over the place, sort of like
my blogs! haha
It takes a person that is paying good
attention to keep up when my mind
speeding by and coming out my mouth.
And the fatigue and trying to focus and
function, I crash.
Like I said, I feel better.
Thank goodness, this one don't seem
to be lasting long.
Last Saturday before the flare hit I
went to the James Bday Bash.
I made a pasta salad before I went to
And I tried some garlic pull apart
bread. Both were a big hit.
While I was in the kitchen making this
stuff I also made some banana bread,
since I had some bananas that Lily
and I would not eat cause they got
I have probably stated it here before
that I don't like to cook.
I love to bake but not cook.
It is always best that I stay out
of the kitchen!
haha...course the upcoming flare.
But I wanted to taste the pasta salad I
made last week and just with no
reason at all, I dropped the plate.
Now the funniest thing I did was somehow
or another I pushed the pepper shaker into
the sink of dishwater.
Did not know it till I went to wash
I want to also throw out a
big thank you for all the great comments
about what I do get done.
If you will notice however most
my projects at small, don't take a lot
of time or attention.
However when it is something like
putting together a kitchen cart, it
takes me days. Painting the
fuse box cover took several days
and it should not have.
With that said, I threw this together the
other day. I had saved these bottles
for a reason, at the time I was not
sure what that reason was.
A tall skinny wine bottle Theresa
saved for me, a bottle that blood
orange juice came in and a vinegar
I wrapped the blood orange bottle
at the bottom in rope, the tall wine
bottle got little brown and beige rocks
added to it and the other one got marbles.
All things I had on hand in my
And glued to the top are solar lights
I picked up at the dollar store.
I have this arrangement sitting in the
yard between two chairs.
I am however working on an idea
for a new table to go between them,
as you can see in the above pic I
use that table as a spray paint table.
The nightly glow.
Before long if I don't stop I think my
neighbors are going to start calling
me that crazy artist lady!
I guess I just have all the creative stuff
going on in my head an it is
clawing its way out, now that I
have time to do this stuff.
I picked up these plates at Goodwill
the other day.
99 cents each.
Here is my master minded idea of
what I wanted them for..
The bunny I got for 1.99 I
wanted for the garden.
But decided it was going
under the crepe myrtle bush
instead! Check out the
PURPLE bow around its
neck...I love it.
Adding more cute items to the
garden and yard....thinking
I probably need to stop!
Have you added anything to your
yard this summer?
