Good things.

It's been a rough week for me due to the Achilles injury that I mentioned before. Not being able to run really makes me crazy and I had a total meltdown on Tuesday. And then actually felt better because I got the meltdown out of me.

But in general my focus has been off and I haven't been particularly inspired to do much of anything. Running is the precursor to my day, the time I take to think about what I am going to do or come up with new ideas or just let my thoughts drift. I've been stretching, but my body feels weird because it's not getting the activity that it is used to and needs. The injury is on the mend though and today I went for a walk. I had to force myself to walk much slower than usual, but it was nice to be out and moving and it didn't seem to bring on any pain so that's good. I'd love to try to run, but I am going to proceed with caution here and give it a little bit more time so I don't have to start all over again with the rest. I've always said that running keeps me sane, and well, it is definitely not an exaggeration.

That said, there have been good things to the week as well:

PJ Harvey's new album, Let England Shake - I've been a fan since the early 1990's and pretty much love everything she has ever done.

Getting mentioned in this awesome blog post about the joys of buying handmade. So thrilled that Jenny mentioned one of my cabled handbags!

Coming across the kitty teepee on Poppytalk. Unbelievably cute.

A fabulous dinner at Santacafe with my parents to celebrate my dad's 71st birthday. The food was delicious and it was nice to spend my time with mom and dad. They were both in such good moods, it was fun to see them so happy.

Deciding that I probably should apply for the Girls Inc. Arts and Craft Show. It scares me a bit, but I think I should do it.

Having a lovely dinner at home with my sweet husband on Valentine's Day. He is the best. He even bought me an orchid plant! (That said, any tips on keeping orchids alive? I am good with houseplants but don't know much about orchids.)

Oh and we got a new bed last Saturday! It hasn't magically allowed me to sleep 8 hours a night, but it does move a lot less than the old one which is good. And Will has hardly even been moving at night which a drastic change from his usual tossing and turning.

The warmer weather has been nice too although sadly I have missed most of the warmest days due to the resting of the Achilles injury. But that's okay, I'll be back out there soon enough!

Hope to have more for you soon...I have a post all about recent food adventures in my head, but I just haven't been able to get it out yet. Now that I am feeling better, I am hoping to get back into the swing of things here.

Take care my lovelies. xo

  1. Take part in the craft fair! I was so nervous about doing my first one in December but it ended up being a lot of fun. My sales weren't out of control but meeting people and seeing other crafters was neat.

    Keeping your mending achilles in my thoughts!
