So what have I been up to?



Modcloth Inspired Interpretation Dress

Labor Day weekend last year I broke my wrist in two places and had to have surgery. I was using a chair to climb up to clean out a cobweb in the corner above my fireplace. When I stepped back down onto the chair I missed it completely. I tried to catch myself with my left hand which, believe you me, was NOT a good idea! Needless to say, since that time I have purchased a step stool.

The surgeon placed what I considered to be a huge pin through my wrist to hold the bones together and in place for 6 weeks. Followed by 6 weeks of physical therapy. OMG how painful was all that! Even after well over a year it still hurts some everyday and occasionally I still have some swelling. Doing my job one-handed and having my hubby dress me was certainly something I had never experienced and not my cup of tea but you gotta do what you gotta do. A week beforehand I had just purchased a new car with a stick shift so I had to have someone drive me around for awhile. It was really all quite stressful. I eventually just stopped doing everything all together that I didn't have to and let myself heal. No crocheting, no blogging, no photo editing or taking photos for that matter and no housework (now that one I didn't complain about). I have a deep sympathy for Captain Hook now folks, the struggle is real!

On another note, I love my new job! I work with some wonderful people and can almost set my own hours. I could use a bit more of a challenge but then again at my age I am enjoying the ease of the job.

I have gone to some great concerts that I hope to showcase soon. Paul McCartney a few weeks ago for my birthday, Lady Gaga before that, Joe Bonamassa and Lynyrd Skynyrd this year alone. I got a new camera for my birthday so great pics to come. I have missed the blogging community and I look forward to new technology making it easier for me to post so that I may do it more often. I still have that slow internet after all!

I blame it on Fight Club! My Pottery Barn obsession that is!

After closing on our house the end of May which you can read about here it was time to make our house our home. I had been doing online research about making the most of small spaces and so I had plenty of ideas floating around in my head. The main things I kept reading over and over were to keep only items that you truly love and find a place to display those items. Everything else you don't use, love or have to have, you should sell, throw away, give away or donate. Good advice! Also a place for everything seemed a must. One of the things that I planned to implement was to hide everything that was not pleasant to the eye with something that was pleasant on the eye. You know you need that space heater, hair dryer and extra toilet paper but they are not much for decoration. I've always been a fan of decorative boxes and baskets but more for their look rather than to actually use them for storing items. This was a huge mistake! Everything that can hold something should.  And s…

TV - American Horror Story - Coven

American Horror Story Official
What can I say, I love a good scary story! In my opinion American Horror Story is one of the best. I am really excited about the new season. It's all about witches this time around and what could be funner! Ever since I was a little girl and saw Glenda ask Dorothy if she was a good witch or a bad witch in the Wizard of Oz, or watched that crazy witch that always wanted to cook Bugs Bunny run after him, I have always loved stories about witches. Most are seen to be bad witches, horrible, wart riddled creatures hovering over cauldrons of potions that could do horrible things to you if you were the person she was conjuring against. You certainly do not want to be that person! I mean, just ask Dorothy or Bugs!  
This year stars: Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Emma Roberts, Denis O'Hare, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Alexandra Breckenridge, Jamie Brewer, Grey Damon, Alexander Dreymon, Christine Ebersole, Josh Hamilton, Danny Huston, Leslie Jord…
