Catch up

Yes, Yes I realize these are horrible pictures. I am still getting used to my Samsung phone camera....and it was cloudy when I took these!
These are 3 "bee" blocks I finished today in order to get them in the mail...long past their mailing date.
Time with my mom this past year has kept me pretty handicapped in terms of being able to finish what I've started. My UFO list is usually pretty long...but this year's takes the cake.
For wishcasting wednesday: I am asking for the abundance of energy and time to tackle the list. From quilting bee blocks to helping DH finish resurrecting our basement after the Central Iowa of 2010. I'm going to need all the help I can get!

what do I want less of

It is wishcasting wednesday... and the prompt was: what do I want less of

Have you ever started something and then had little roadblocks pop up to test your willingness/ability to follow through? right, who hasn't...

recently I started working out in a fitness bootcamp....starts at 530 am. should be easy enough, I'm an early riser and no time conflicts. HA! I went the first week struggling with staying asleep all night due to migraine med changes. It is very hard to get up and go, let alone stay, at a hard workout when you've actually been up since 2 am all week long! So, there has been little things here and there, not precluding family crisis. Last nite my husband and I spent most of the nite at Iowa State University's Vet Med Animal Clinic. One of our dogs has been coughing and it accelerated to coughing so much he could hardly breathe. Very scary, just like when our 24 yo had croup as a child. After exams by student vets and staff vets and a chest xray, they determined he prob has a form of bordatella. our regular vet told us this am that it is going around and some dogs are getting it without contact with an infected animal. Surprised us! Oh well, he is on antibiotics and cough suppression. I'm so glad we went in though as he is worse today, can't imagine what he would be like if we hadn't already started the antibiotics.

So, needless to say, I'm ready for the distractions--of any type to Not Be Present.

time to sit on my ass

today's wishcasting prompt over at Jamie Ridler studios got me thinking....what do I really want to begin? I have tons of thoughts floating through my head all the time..but where to start?

I keep telling myself I'm going to start meditating. So, now I need to begin. short time every day. all I have to do is show up.

and it is the fall...back to school..means learning a new subject for me. see you there.
