This is what my dad bought.
This is what my mom bought.
Maybe after being married for almost 43 years, they are rubbing off on each other. My dad in a thrift store, come on, really? They both got a deal, but mom's the professional thrifter. My dad's book cost $1.00 and my mom's was 10 cents. :-)
On Friday morning, I was one of the features on Curly Nikki's "Show and Tell Fierce Friday" segment. This is my first time being featured on a natural hair blog.

I have been diagnosed with DeQuervain's Syndrome, which has a lot to do with the thumb. The doc told me to wear my brace at night for 6 weeks even when I don't feel anything wrong and apply ice to the area when I do. My injury just hasn't completely healed, but because the response was really good to therapy and other treatments, it will probably subside. He did not recommend cortisone, unless it was just really bad, and it's not. Surgery is the last option, but it's not that serious. I like doctors, who are surgeons, who don't push meds and surgery as if that's the only option. In fact the doctor said, "We want to keep you crocheting!" Needless to say, I was literally skipping out the office. :-)
Life happens and throws us off schedule at times. So, my craft room makeover project won't be finished with the paint portion before I head back to work like I had planned, but that's ok. Slow and steady wins the race. The ceiling and the molding strips are painted. The three green walls are painted. Then we had to take a break. My dad started wheezing and I said, "Enough!" The deadline is not that important. But I couldn't resist giving you all a little sneak peek. I feel happy in this space already. :-)
Until next time,
