This was an absolutely wonderful day! The weather was perfect and I felt great! Even worked outside a little. Thought I'd fill you all in on what I accomplished last week during the down time so I would not feel so worthless.

The black yo-yo's came to me from a grandmother or greataunt. I honestly don't remember. They are very old, but aren't very appealing. I dug out some I had started years ago and decided to get back to it. Easy and fast while watching HGTV all day, huh? I'm hoping to get enough to make a tablecover. I'll keep you posted. Below you can see the variety of the reading material which kept me occupied, plus a "few"more mags. (did I mention, I have a "slight" magazine problem?)

Kermit's back to show you that his rug (see 4/10 post) also got finished. I took it outside today to really be "green", but the sun was so bright that I had to shot him in the shade. That's why he's kinda dark and blue looking. Anyway it's now done & I'm feeling proud & will put it in the bathroom by the shower. Thanks, Kermie.

A while back, quite a while actually, we were tagged by Victoria of Sweet Victoria Antiques to share six (6) words which reveal our philosophy of life. Let me tell you that really gets the thought process going. Finally all my stumbles, forays into creativity, and rational thought boiled down to this one verse I constantly repeat: "All things work together for good" (Romans 8:28). Of course, there's more to the verse, but this says it all in a nutshell. This has been true for so many situations, as far back as college days. I see it revealed in my day-to-day life and is a comfort when I don't understand why some things happen. (like last week's drug reaction). To me the basic truth in this verse is just to trust God to take care of your life. Everything will turn out the way He wants it to and for the best.

So now I am passing this onto five more blogs. Please write a Six Word Memoir that represents your life's motto.... The rules are:1. Write your own six word Memoir. 2. Post it on your blog. 3. Link to the person who tagged you .4. Tag 5 more blogs with links (leave a comment on their blog with an invitation to play).
I'm tagging these people:
I can't wait to see what you say. See ya soon. Luv, Nerm

Wow!! I can't believe what you got done, while sick and laid up!!! Amazing!! I don't think anyone would think you worthless if you just rested!!

Kermit is cute!

Glad to see your able to make those darling yo-yo's even while getting better, always creative! I also have a "slight" magazine addiction...ok, to tell the truth a BIG MAGAZINE ADDICTION! Each one helps to launch more creativity in us, so what the heck? I just keep getting more...
Have a great week and feel better soon, I am praying for you!

I like tags. Really tells a lot about a person. Give me some time also. I need to think about this one!

You have been one busy lady...good for you and I really like your attitude about life. We are in his hands and we need to trust him. Through good and bad times.

Glad to hear you are feeling better!

So happy to know you ae on the up swing! Yo-yo s are so darned charming, arent they? I need to make myself some and use them in a unique way. Hmmm, yo-yo bikini ? Naw, The top would only need 2 yo yo's but the bottom...... to many yo yo's to count. *sigh*
All things really do work together for good.

Hi Nerm, Thanks for the visit over at my blog on MOther's Day. I can't wait to see what you do with those yo-yo's. I do like the bright color of the one's in the photo on the top.
