Spellbound...


Just a day of "cards" and swapping some "recipes" with some of my ghoul friends...






We had a totally "bewitching" time...  xoxo...  Julie Marie

My thoughts today...



Okay...  so I have always pooh~poohed it when someone suggested I rest when I don't feel good...  but this time, it was not a suggestion...  it was an order from my doctor until my tendinitis in my knee and hip  heals in two to three weeks...  it sounded like I was getting the maximum "sentence" and would not be "paroled" for so long!...  my doctor was very kind about it... but very emphatic...  no rest... and I would be "doing more time"...  all righty then...  since I have never done "hard time"...  (nor do I want to!)...  I have been totally taking it easy...  and guess what...  I kinda like it!...  not the pain mind you...  but the taking it easy part...


I  have finally given in and let Jack do everything for me that is on the list of "no~no's" for me for now... like walking Tessy down the trail, getting things I need from downstairs... grocery shopping... filling all of the birdfeeders and birdbaths... taking care of the laundry...  you name it... making me coffee...  while I lay here, cozy and relaxing... dabbling quite a bit in my watercolors... and having so much fun doing so...  this is my latest one... with some of my little "felted" critters gathered around it...  it's actually therapeutic (thanks Deb at Posted From Home for the good advice!)... hey!...  I think I could get used to this!...  (the pampering part!)... speaking honestly here though...  I must admit that sometimes I don't listen when my body tells me to "slow down"... until I have to... and I have decided, there is nothing wrong with not being able to "do it all" ALL of the time... as one of my favorite authors (and singers) Naomi Judd says about trying to do it all, especially wanting to do everything for others and putting yourself last too often  (which is what I tend to do and I am sure many of you are the same way)...  "I am retiring as Queen of the Universe"...  me too!... (for now, anyway....)...
