Day to Day Adventure: Hibernating & Projects

Hibernating & Projects

Life has been moving really slow here this week. 
We are pretty much snowed in because of me being on crutches.  I can’t see navigating in 8 inches of snow that way.  We canceled things that weren’t snowed out and just hibernated here at home.
I had all these great crafts to work on while I was down and out.  Unfortunately using crutches makes your arms so sore that it is hard to do repetitive motions.  Like making a rug, like crocheting or anything else!
I have worked some just not as much as I would like.
Here is an update on my rag rug.  It is coming right along.  It measures 28 x 16 right now.  If you are interested in all the instructions go to Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.
Instead of just working on my crafts I have been sitting at the table(yea!) planning/grading some school things and teaching Joshua his cursive letters. 
He doesn’t like to write but Handwriting without Tears makes it fun to learn.  We just did the first 3 pages today but he didn’t complain a bit!  We’ve also been working some Mind Benders.  He LOVES those!  The are challenging to a young man whose mind love to work out problems.
While we sit & work the birds are going crazy over our feeders because of the 8 inches of snow on the ground.  I love how they act and get possessive over where they sit.  Beautiful colors in the middle of all the white.
Hmm we might have to make some bird cakes soon.  Birds love them!  I will post the recipe as soon as I can!

  1. Oh, my word!!! I'm so excited to check out the rag rug instructions!!! I'm so going to make one!!! I have recently REALLY gotten into crafts!!! =) So, I'm totally following your blog!
    Oh, crutches...what can I say about those... they're horrible! I hope you are off of them soon...

  2. Kandy--glad you are excited. It is a lot of fun to make! Let me know if you have any questions!

  3. I'm currently crocheting a rag rug too:) The hardest part is that I can't decide what color pattern I want!

    I came by from FTLOB:)

  4. I think if you know where the rug is going it is easier to choose your colors. On the other hand my fabric was cheap at the Goodwill so I was just really happy it matched the room I wanted it to go in!

  5. The rug is pretty and I am so impressed you are creating it! Love the bird photo and the feeder!
