what-is-woyww. Our hostess Mrs. Dunnit or Queen Julia has things set up for you to participate.
So Betsy has seen some action, mostly yesterday and today (I'll explain further below for anyone interested) What you are looking at is how things were "dumped" on her this morning before I went to the Urgent Care (see below) Everyone has voted for the WOYWW letters to remain, so they shall for a while, or until I tire of them....LOL All around the perimeter are the standard tools and toys I feel I need at my finger tips. In the middle is my art journal that I have been priming for future use and stacked on that are a few DT images for up coming challenges, back ground papers, pencils and what-not. Under the pile is an extra large clip board I use when I want to color in front of the TV and of course the first thing I put on and the last thing I take off are my extra set of eye. So that is it, short and sweet for those just nosing around (which is what it is all about LOL)
Love to read your comments. The journal page that was there last week will pop up this Friday, with lots of pictures and a detailed tutorial..... if your interested!!
WARNING: stop here! The following will most likely mke you feel sorry for me, OR will have you laughing until you cry, I really CAN do some stupid things!!!
WEED UP-DATE & URGENT CARE:
I have finally gotten all four flower beds cleaned up, dug up flower bulbs and put them in pots, moved some things around, run wire from one palm tree to an other and planted two vining flowers ( hope to have a wall of orange Black Eyed Susan's later this summer) I laid down gardeners cloth in all the flower beds to keep the weeds out. Re-doing four large flower beds does take some time. I even cleaned one out and planted tomatoes and Basil, with mint and rosemary going into pots........have to have my fresh herbs!!
OK, so why Urgent Care? Weeelllll, yesterday morning I was putting in the last of the gardener's ground cloth, in the flower bed in the front yard. I came off the porch, took and hard left and tripped on the garden hose and fell face first onto the concrete boarder of the flower bed!! First thought:" my hand just hit cement".....Second thought:" Oh shit I'm gonna have a black eye".......Third thought: "get off the ground before the neighbors see you laying here." OUCH!!! I cried for about 20 minutes (after I got back in the house) I landed on my left cheek and right hand. My cheek has two nice scrapes and a dent. My eyebrow is very sore too. Once Mr. O. took a look and got me a cool clean cloth to press on my face I laid down for a few minutes. BUT I had to get that flower bed finished and a few more flowers planted before it rained (yeah, go figure) So I went back and finished, cleaned the mess up and laid on the sofa the rest of the day, then my right wrist started to swell. I iced it down, and then wrapped it good and went to bed, and yes, my eye had turned black!
This morning my wrist had doubled in size and I was limited on some movements, but not a lot of pain. Mr. O. wanted me to get to a Dr. and get it looked at and an X-RAY. WELL! I called the Dr. that had did the surgery on it about 10 years ago, and they NO LONGER TAKE CASH!!! ONLY INSURANCE!!! So I had to go to Urgent Care to get the X-RAY and have a Dr. read the X-RAY.
Nothing is broken, just a bad sprain, but the left side of my face is something else! It has started to lighten up, under the eye already, but the eye lid and inside corner are still BLACK!! I do have pics, but they are on my cell phone. I'll get my cousin to use the camera tomorrow when she comes to visit, can't wait to see her reaction.........LOL I really do have a Hallween face! BUT my flower beds look super clean and so pretty with new flowers here and there.
OK, so enough about all that, if you have read THIS far you are really a great blog buddy, and thanks for letting me blog on and on!!!
Have a great week
