This week I was resting but I needed something to keep my hands busy, so I made up a little piece to work on. It is from a Kindred Spirits book and was part of a grouping of pieces, that would be hung on a stick. I decided to take the reindeer appliqué and add the saying to that for a small wall hanging.
It was fun to do and I am thinking I might do another, but this time, use a different reindeer and make it more fun, for a piece for the kids. I have a lot of projects I want to finish and start, but I can only stand for so long and sitting isn't much better, but my tailbone is a bit better than earlier in the week.
We got out for a bit on the weekend. We went for a scenic ride and stopped at a bike trail, this time I walked a small part of it. The views were spectacular from the top of the aqueduct, but hard to envision in a photo. We also stopped at a pond, that we pass by and enjoyed the fall foliage that was coming in. Not sure why, but I guess you could call it a delayed reaction from my fall. The pain got so bad, I could not sleep and I had to get a butt cushion so I could sit.
The next day we stayed closer to home and visited a reservoir. The views are beautiful and they have a nice walk around the pond. We walked a little way to a bridge before turning back. It was a painful walk, but nice to get out for a little while.
And I finally felt up to going to the beach for a bit. I only walk up and down for a bit and stick to looking for large pieces so I don't bend too much. The fresh air always makes me feel better, but I do limit myself for now. I actually found a huge hunk of white, just sitting on the beach, it is 1/2" thick. Bill always finds a few pieces too, so just finding some nice ones, makes me happy.
Tomorrow the kids want me to go with them to a park, an hour away and take photos for their Christmas card. Then Sunday it will be a drive to find more foliage. It is popping in some areas and some are still green, so hopefully we will have a few more weeks to enjoy the colors. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
