It is Friday again.....

10 am.

I actually crawled out of bed at 10am after the blog decorating marathon last night. But it was such fun! If you look at it with the full screen, you can see the whole thing. It looks more like "me", as my highly critical and very special sister says. "You are colour, and quilts, and flowers, and mountains, and life and people", she said when she saw the last one. Well, this one has bits of that, and you lot are the people, so we are all set.

I still remember when MG and I decided on a beautiful mountain one months ago, and when it loaded, it looked like hairy caterpillars wandering around the top. Bizarre. That didn't last long. Minutes.

MG and I both love Sandra's blog. We agree that she must be a genius. I have no idea how she has taught herself how to do it all, but I really want to learn how to do it myself too. Sigh. Wouldn't it be great to go and sit in Sandra's lounge and have a hands-on lesson?? With many breaks to sample all her delicious cooking, of course. I think there would be much laughter. Sandra??? Do you need visitors??

Back to this morning. I had a really slow start, I confess. I had some errands to see to...bills and such like, and then came home to watch the rest of the tennis. I may just have overdone the exercises, I think. MY leg (note the "my") is not a joy at the moment. In fact MY leg is a bit of a nightmare. I am supposed to relax and massage it. Well, to be truthful, I am supposed to get a partner to massage it. You try relaxing and massaging your own leg. The two things are mutually exclusive. Blast. Oh well. I will pat it now and then. MY leg.

I am a little weary, people, so I am now off to manufacture something for supper, close the curtains as it is pitch dark already, and climb onto that couch with my recession heater and blanket, aka the cloud. TV, my book and maybe a chocolate. Sounds perfect. Not forgetting the coffee.

PS..... My sister, the other genius, suggested I start another blog, and play around with backgrounds there where there is nothing important I can mess up. I may well do that. I have been thinking of having another blog for different things. Hmmm. It could be fun!

Two blogs? *faint* =)

Let me just say why I love this design (I'll be following your link shortly). It's soothing, the font and color are easy to read. It feels calm and easy...I'm already rethinking mine...hmmm...okay, enjoy your supper and your evening.

Well, all night blog decorating parties may be fun while they're going on - the next morning, not so much, eh?? I do really like the look. Someday put the one with that unusual branch up on your header.

Yep - it's Friday - already. It's been a yucky week for me, but good stuff happened, too - I posted a bit about the good, but can't talk about the bad - you know.

Mary said...

Do we get a clue? The other blog? Subject matter?

And what this .....More chocolate?

Isabelle said...

Ah yes, that's much nicer than the pink you had briefly!

Sorry the leg is so troublesome. I wish I had a magic wand for you.

Have a good weekend.

Linda said...

I love it!!! It makes me itch to do something new too - but I haven't a clue! I love the pictures in the sidebar.
Have a blessed weekend Linds.

I love your new look Linds, it is relaxing and refreshing and the path in the picture is just beautiful. I hope your weekend is peaceful and healing for your poor leg. I too would love to be creative enough to play with my blog but I am scared to death I would wipe out the whole thing. I have been learning little by little though so I feel good. Take care sweet friend.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Judith said...

Linds this is so YOU! I can see you walking that beautiful place that surely God designed. It is exactly right. Enjoy, dear friend.

Crystal said...

I just enlarged it to full screen and it looks so pretty!! I was only getting a bit and now I have the full effect. Take care of yourself and your leg - a rest day sounds like the right thing for you this weekend. ((( HUGS )))

You did well, it is lovely Linds, especially the header.

Sorry you are still having so much pain with your leg.
