I broke it!

I still can't believe I did this.  I miss my step of the stupid curb and go down like a bag of dirt. Yeah, I freakin broke it.

I have never broke a bone my entire life.  The dr. Told me it is a displace fracture of the fibula.  Technically a broken leg.  Good news is he doesn't think I will need surgery.  The down side, I can not put any weight on it at all.  Needless to say I have spent the past few days confined to either bed or the sofa.  I am stinky and ill!   Brad has stepped up to the plate and has been the most awesome caretaker in the world!  

Since I am stuck with my leg in the air, I decided this would be some prime crochet time.  So I have been playing with some mitered squares.  I believe this is the direction I am going.

Oh....if you would like the pattern, you can find it here!

I decided I would reverse the colors so they are opposite, so when I join them they will have this effect.

There are a lot of ends to be woven in, so now I am crocheting over the ends as I go along.  I think this is going to make an awesome blanket!

Phoebe is not quite sure of what to make of this contraption on my leg.  She stays by my side all day.  

How sweet is that!

Her right eye is bothering her a little bit.  She was even rubbing her face on my cast, so I know it is itchy.  Poor little booger!

I will definitely be back this week with more progress, no complaining about not having time to crochet and blog!

The art of being lazy!

This about sums up what I have been up to lately.  Very little.  

We had a winter snow push through last week.  They actually closed work for a full day.  I cannot remember the last time that happened!  Very rare in North Carolina!

We did get out and play in the snow for a little while.

Girlie actually enjoyed it although here you can't quite tell it.

And when pee pee time came she wouldn't gouge out into the yarn where the snow was deep, she opted for the front porch.   

Her cuteness is beyond words.  But I am onto her....she has one thing on her mind and that is what is on my plate!!!!!!!

I am still working on a pair of socks.  I was hoping to get them finished up this weekend, but that's not going to happen.  Maybe this week?  We'll see.

Before I go let me share one of my drawings.

I am pleased with it!  It is my nephew and my mom.  I am trying to squeeze more art time in these days.  I need to practice on drawing hair!

Bye for now!

Color Therapy

I have been doing a little bit of drawing therapy!  Fun stuff!  And I do love it pretty much was a given where I was going with this.  

I haven't picked up a sketch book in years and it has really been on the back of my mind.  Actually I would like to do a painting.  But for now, this has been very satisfying and good for my brain!

I even did a little portrait of Phoebe.  LOL!  I actually use color crayons on this.  It was a lot of fun.  A couple of hours of time to myself and a box of crayons.  Y'all should give it a try!

Here is hoping to a great new week.  Have a physical this week, way past due for it.  So it will feel good to get that behind me.  

I have also started a pair of socks and hope to be sharing those with y'all very soon!  I about have one done.  Roast is in the oven, how is pretty much in order, so I am going to sit back and enjoy a little free time!

Stay inspired everyone!
