Hiding in the Bedroom

Yes, I could have gotten in the car and run a few errands while Bill's guests were here, but I'm still wanting to stay home. I cherish my freedom and because I have to go have "the medical procedure that all fifty-year old humans must have that shall not be named" on Thursday, I feel like the week is slipping by and I want to stop time by hanging out at home. So, trapped upstairs with the bear and my camera (dangerous) I messed around a little. I DID draw my parents an anniversary picture and I'll show it to you after I frame it. I also talked to Kelli on the phone. She put together Birdie's new kitchen and Birdie is in little girl HEAVEN playing house today. So, below you'll see my "digs" and some other random shots pertaining to my confinement!

Too much time trapped upstairs, unable to roam around the house in my usual distracted state, I realize that I am more than a little focus challenged!

This is ONE of my knitting projects and one of the few that I am SO proud of. Remember when everyone was knitting and felting stuff? I saw so many cool purses then! I know that now it isn't the "in thing" but I still like to gloat over this purse which was a perfect wacky accessory for Pom Pom!

Remember when I told you about Praying in Color? I've been doing that! This day, I prayed for Laura, Jill, Bryan, Mark and Kelli. Then I added my embellishments and lots of squiggles and yellow-y glows! I love journaling this way. I saw that Jewels on Eyes of Wonder (a beautiful blog!) does this when she journals, too! I have long been a doodler and even jazzed up my college notes when I took all my English classes five years ago. I feel FUN FUN FUN when I am drawing and coloring!

This is all the stuff I took up to our bedroom, so I could create and think (and mess around with my computer) while Bill entertained his friends downstairs. The Creative Call is VERY interesting and reminds me of The Artist's Way (which I find VERY inspiring) and I've been leafing through both lately. Brad and April gave me the Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader for Mother's Day and it is a delight. Makes me so hungry - I'm glad the guys will share pizza with me! I'm off to eat some! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit and I promise some deeper more meaningful words later. I realize I am a bit over the top with my constant posting, because I haven't really hit my summer stride yet. I am addicted to blogs and there are so many fun places to visit and snatch up inspiration! But, I really do need to move around a bit more, so don't worry - I'll mellow out soon! Love to you, DEAREST Reader! BYE!

Wonderful post! :) Don't you love your Mitford cookbook? I recently found one on clearance and held it tightly til I got to check-out.

I just wanted to stop in again and say, "thank you" for all the info on Madeleine L'engle. I am going to keep my eyes open for her books. I can't wait!

Have a lovely evening!

I can't help but feel that this entry ends with the "Stan Lee" ending: "Fear not, True Believer, Spiderman will not be vanquished today!" I also find it funny that you were confined to the upstairs like "crazy aunt Betty." Not to worry, you are only crazy in the very best ways. I love you so very much! PS the felted purse was, is and always will be awesome!

Brad, Ha ha! I could have hung around downstairs - I was invited, you know!
Andrea, keep me posted as you read Madeleine L'Engle. I can't wait to hear what you think!

Jan Karon, one of my most favourite authors. I have that book also, in addition to just about everything she wrote!
Isnt Jewel's blog lovely? Have you found 'As lilies sewing', yet? It's linked on my list, another charming blog.

Teresa, thank you so much for visiting! I find a new blog every day! Look at French Village Life and As Lilies Sewing and you'll see some beautiful pictures and sweet posts. Firefly Cottage is a favorite of mine, too. Oh! The Parson's Wife and Tracing Rainbows are both special. Red Wellies, Rainbows and Cinnamon Whirls is sweet, too. There are more - many more! Have fun! And, have a wonderful summer day!
