So it's not that I don't think I'm capable of following through with something - but I'm so HAPPY that I've been able to stick with this 30 day blog challenge for 7 days!
I saw the ortho again today for my first follow up. The bone is still broken, but healing. I'm still sentenced to my aircast/boot for the next two weeks - to be worn at all times except when showering. Which means still no driving. But the good news is, she said that I could start bearing weight on my foot and gradually stop using the crutches! Yay!
In the meanwhile - it's day 7 of the 30 day blog challenge!
Today I'm going to start with something 'beady'. I actually did a little beading today. I worked on my Margie & Me challenge (which I'm hoping will be finished by Saturday). And I also made this ring. Forgive the quality of the photo - I forgot to photograph when I was upstairs today which is where my camera happens to be. And so I snapped this with my phone's camera!
Now onto the challenge topics!
On two of the lists for day 7, the topic was a photo that makes you happy. On another list there was "What is your place of refuge?"
So...since I mentioned there were so many photos that make me happy - I'll go ahead and indulge (myself) in sharing another.
Here (above) is a photo of something that happens every day during the week, ever since we were blessed with bringing home our dog Molly. When Jackson gets home from school, she is beyond excited to see him and he takes her outside and runs around the back yard with her. Frankly - I can NOT get enough of the giant smile on his face and I don't think I will ever tire of this scene.
The arrow above is a response to "What is your place of refuge?" If the weather ever warms up - the above picture shows where I like to be when I need a little refuge. In the photo, the chairs are about 10 feet out of place to where they normally are. I usually have them under a tree and facing the yard. The firepit is in front of the chairs, and in a bed of flowers behind the chairs are a row of tiki torches. It's a lovely place to be outside.
My other place of refuge is my 'bead room'.
The entire far right corner of this room contains beads galore! It overlooks the same yard that the two chairs in the former picture also overlooks - which may not be super fancy - but in the Spring, Summer and Fall - it's awfully pleasant. There is a cozy bed in the opposite corner, which is great to relax on and read a novel, self-help book or a Bead & Button magazine. I absolutely love this space and get all the privacy, quiet, peace and inspiration I need!
And on that note...I'm on my way there since there's a project (or two or three) I need to finish!
