A Little Gift and a Lot of Housework!

I almost hate to say I'm feeling better because the gods might hear me and decide to smack me down again! Actually I've been feeling better this week but have been swamped with things that didn't get done when my hand was hurt and then while I had my tummy problems. I'm still digging out so if you don't see me around the blogs very much you'll know why!

And just forget about any art! I'm not sure when I'll fit that into my schedule! I did do a little sketch last night while watching an amazing program. Did any of you watch the Diane Sawyer interview with Randy Pausch?? Where have I been? I had never heard of this man! He is so inspiring. He made me stop and think about my own trivial illnesses....and that made me feel so much better. If you haven't heard of him or didn't see the program you can google him and find all kinds of info plus videos.

********************************************

HB is such a sweetie! Look what he brought me to cheer me up....



Bet you thought it was gonna be flowers, huh!! Nope. Something better! I love when HB brings me a bunch of these. Are you confused? These little containers are what electrical tape comes in, and they are the perfect size to store all those small rolls of ribbon.



And they're great for beads, too, or any other small items that you want to keep sorted and separate. He brought me 15 this time! Yah!! He knows what I like!

So that's about all I have for today. I hope you will forgive me for not visiting your blogs lately. Beginning today I'm trying to get around to as many as I can in between all my household chores. I do so appreciate all your kind messages and emails while I've been under the weather. You all are the BEST!!!

  4. OK queen of the meme's.

    I know your life is very full, but I have challenged you to do a very constructive MeMe. You can pick it up on my blog. It is the best MeMe I've ever seen. Have fun with it. Even if you don't post it, give it a try. It is great.

  7. I am so, so glad you are finally feeling better! Isn't it great when a husband buys you something he instictively knows you will love? Like manure and fertilizer? Yeah, much better than a chain saw or vacuum cleaner. First one: He wants. Second one: Insult!

    A blogger sent me a link to the interview but as I have no audio I didn't have the slightest clue what the heck it was about. At least now I can google him!!!

  14. I, too, have been missing my regular blog visits - life has been busy, busy, busy. But I happened to catch your name online this morning and thought - oh, man, I bet she thinks I've forgotten her completely!

    Sorry you've been feeling sick - me too. Urgh. But getting better. (I'm no longer a newt?)

    I thought those were lab containers - what are they called - Petri dishes! LOL! But empty is better. I was just wondering what useful purpose all my empty CD cases could serve - not individual CD cases, but the tall round tower cases that hold empty CD's for burning. And now I know - perfect for ribbons! That is, if I ever get back into my studio again.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  22. I love the gift - way more useful than flowers! Glad you're feeling better. I haven't been around much the past couple a weeks, either, for reasons that seem almost similar in some ways. Wonder if it's the planets or what...
    Didn't see the show - I haven't even been keeping up with Lost - that's just sad! Hope things keep getting better for you.
