DH and our boys ( well guys as they are 35 and 29 ! ) have headed up North for 10 days on their yearly guy bonding / hunting trip . They don't rough it as they are staying in the back country with a friend of DH's . They have their own sleeping quarters , cooking facilities , showers , TV and satellite and access to a whole camp for that matter ! They are treated like kings with no roughing it involved . Their cell phones work great where they are too so IF they turn them on , then they can be reached .
I usually love my time away from the routine of cooking and cleaning but being I am unable to play right now am finding this BORING ! I have sat on my hinny way more then I should reading or watching TV and movies . I am not one to watch a lot of TV .... it is on more for background noise while I play . The neighbor has been great taking me to therapy and then for coffee but the days still are long ........ I don't know that I am even going to get my Christmas cards made now or signed if they were made as I still can not hold a pen for any length of time so I know I can not use my Copics either ....... Maybe I will just make New Year's cards and send them in January !
This is what I see from the doorway ......... an older photo as I have cleaned up , purged and changed the layout on the top of my desk . I actually have a new lamp too which will work So much better as it is an OTT desk lamp ...... great light and it doesn't colapse like this one does ! LOL !
This is what is calling me every time I walk down my hallway !!! I store my Copic markers in 2 Quickut Magpie Storage units that I bought of Overstock.com ..... shipping was almost as much as the units but so worth it ! My desk , paper tray and storage units come from Best Craft Organizer Scrapbook Shelf and I LOVE these units ... as does DH as he says for the first time my room looks neat and organized ( well most of the time ! LOL )
The Stickles containers are just sitting to fill up empty holes .... the compartments are not full of them .... seriously though I DO love my Stickles ! ( Glitter glue for those of you that don't paper craft ! )
Not sure how this next week will play out here but I hope you all have a great week .... play how you will and enjoy life ! I am sure I can dig through my HUGE stack of pocketbooks ( yes I " collect " those too ! ) and watch a few more movies and I will relax ..... and dream of my crappy room ! I may even post a card that is finished on my desk at some point over the next day or two ....... nd it isn't a Magnolia stamp so stay tuned !
