I Was “Gifted” on My Vacation

Received this lovely little package in the mail yesterday, the middle of my vacation.  It was from Carol at Swallowcliffs Art Blog.

A lovely beaded bookmark (can you ever have enough bookmarks?) and a key chain.  However, I think I am going to put the key chain on a necklace.  It is hard to see in the picture, but the key is “tarnished” and it has a lovely filigree piece on one side and on the other is the word “LOVE”.  Just too pretty to put keys on.

Meanwhile, what have I been doing on my “staycation” as they are being called now?  I have watched 3 DVD’s…..Doubt (which is good), Tale of Despereaux, and The Day the Earth Stood Still.  They were entertaining and OK.  None of which just blew me away.

Also have been on the Wii Fit.  Have managed to do 1 hour workouts almost every day.  I have “unlocked” some activities I almost wish I hadn’t, but been going on.  Up to 30 Jack knives at a time and one of my favorites, the Free Step.  But I am exercising!  Check out my MapMyWalk widget to get up on my progress.

Working on my quilt while I was watching the movies.  So getting 2 things done at the same time.  Doing some reading.  Cleaned the kitchen really well yesterday (much to the girls dismay----mom cleans, they clean).  Still have 2 more days.  I am working Saturday and Sunday for people as the Easter Bunny is taking a detour (don’t need the candy) and we need the $$$ too much.

But on a down note……the dog has a date Friday.  It’s sad when the dog has a date and you don’t.  It’s a “play date”.  We need to get her more socialized and OD found a young couple in the complex who has dogs, got to talking, and they like Noel and are going to let her play with their dogs.  Noel has already met one of them and they got along fine.  But still, the DOG has a date!

  1. Thanks for mentioning and showing my 29gifts project gifts. I see you are for dogs, so am I, and I am just about to go to fiber workshop next week, so I am getting into fibers a bit. Have a good day!
