Playing with Christmas Lights

Morning Bloggers!
Yesterday was a down day for me,  I did nothing. 
While surfing Pinterest I saw this.. the star caught my attention! Did not look to see if they made theirs with yard  sticks but it looks about the right size.

So....even just taking it easy I have to do I played with  the cell phone camera and the tree lights. 

haha....looks better done with a real camera but I just did not want to get that out to  play with it...
Found this on Pinterest also.. will need to make one of these for my niece. 

Also saw this quilt. I love the long  strips  of this one. I think I could actually make this one and to quilt the backing I could get my sis in law Lori to help.
I am not much of a sewer but I have been given my mom's sewing machine. She can't sit and  sew much anymore so she has passed that to me.

2017 Christmas Card - Hand Painted Made into Prints

I have been building you folks up for days now showing you  past cards...
I have heard back from folks on my list that they got their cards today so now I will post what I  painted and sent out.

What do you think?

Hat to Star Wars

Around 10 years ago my friend Debbie lost her mom, Mama Jo. Jo was a big part of my life also. Loved that lady.
Debbie gave me one of her hats that she wore in the winter all the time.
Just a plain black hat. Well, you know me, I thought the other day that it needed something more.

Remember this new Santa hat I  picked up the other day?

Well for a $1 I stopped and picked up another one... to take apart. 

Once it was taken apart this is what I did with it.

Now...that is better isn't it?

Baked a new bread the other day. Just a regular white bread, no herbs or spices added to it.

Oh my...I don't need to be making this 

What is New Here

Good morning my blogging friends. I am sitting here on the couch with Dakota curled up next to me and Lily just left my chest where I got all  sorts of loving. Now, maybe I can finish my coffee!
Saw this the other day and had to  laugh, esp this time of yr!!

I finished a project for my friend Debbie's Christmas gift but since I am not sure if she still reads my blog I  am not posting a pic yet.... but this knob went on it!

Have you wondering yet? haha
Went to Wally World last week and I  saw this....I LOVE IT! If I still worked I would have  gotten this to wear at work. With the weight loss I could really rock this outfit!

For as many years as I have lived on  my own, I have taped my Christmas cards to my inside of my front door...this year I went with taping them to my inside window!

It is really a shame that so many don't do Christmas cards anymore. I can remember where at this time that window would be covered from having

Losing Weight

I have not updated anything on my weight loss in a while. 
I am still bouncing between  62 to 65 lbs.  I am good with that for now but after the holiday's I will work on dropping some more. 

One advantage of losing weight is clothes to big.
But when it comes to losing weight, until you hit a certain place, you really don't want to buy anymore so you walk around for awhile in  those clothes that are too big!
One of the first things I noticed when  I dropped weight that I did not notice before was that I have collar bones! HAHA
I know this sounds silly but every time I reach up to scratch or rub my neck or something I notice those bones sticking  out and being noticeable!
With that the width between the shoulders got smaller too. 
One good thing about dropping that pouch around the middle... I can lean over and paint my toe nails! haha

That is how I feel the last  few days... Totally DISCOMBOBULATED. 
Fibro does that to me. The pain makes me flakey also. So  flakey that I  do stupid things. Like misplace my debit card!
Yesterday I canceled that and reordered another one.
Like a flakey space cadet!
But reading from this list I  would go with confusion, tender joints,  neck and shoulder pain, irritability,  muscle knots, spasms and  twitches, nerve pain, anxiety....etc...
see the one on the bottom where it says dry skin, eyes and mouth....
keep that in mind.

And yet with all that, it is still not the most horrible of days!
 But remember I said dry skin... eyes and mouth. Can't keep enough lotion  on this body to keep the skin from being dry.
But the worst was the dry eyes.
To explain, last night I put contacts in to go look at contacts.
