Quick Peep

Was going to post some lovely photos from the garden but woke to thunderstorms this morning, so nothing but text instead. Pooey!
Off to my last out of house PT session this morning until the Doc reevaluates me, but in the meantime, I have the Marcy home gym uncovered and ready for action. (look out Jan! HA!) Now it is serious muscle rebuilding time, though they were quite surprised at most of my leg strength. There is one area half as strong as the others, so that is where I will be focusing, plus a good upper body work out to get back to being able to bench press something other than wussie-weight.
Gary said he will help me in the sewing studio this weekend to get it back in order and I shot a pic of the two purchases I made at the Quilt Guild show last Saturday, which are bright, glowing and just BEGGING to have something made from them. There might be sewing in the near future.
PLUS!!!! A friend of mine had dropped off two good, old iron skillets for me (seasoned and wonderful!) and I hadn't opened the plastic bag till yesterday. When I did, I found a small bag of the German pressed gold paper ornament (and I can't think of the proper name now to save my soul) and I was estatic! It will work so well for the box canvas pieces! So that is tempting me too.
And I have been delaying a trip to Manto Fev's site for a few things I need......AHEM!
I guess I'd better stop the verbal ramble and get myself cleaned up for therapy, but there is going to be some *art therapy* going on here at Casa Lockard too. I'm tired of posting my wild back yard (although I still have new blossoms on the tulip poplar!) and I am sure you're tired of seeing it!
There is supposed to be art here.......
I'm looking for it........
Hope your day is much more sun-shiney than here and hope your art time is productive and soul soothing! And add a few extra minutes to it for me, would ya? ;)

congrats on making such good physical progress!

I think, the name you're searching for is Dresden scrap.

Leslie said...

Again, we have grey skies.

Thrilled you are making progress.

BTW, have you gotten a post card from me yet?

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Tristan, yes! Dresden scrap! I am so brain numb. It is sooooo cool; makes me want to go BUY SOME MORE.......

Leslie---I TOTALLY apologize for not writing about the post card and enclosure, which I treasure! (I *swear* I did write though to your e-mail addy....wonder if that was when things were going wonky here with the ISP?)I have the postcard where I see it everyday; calming and beautiful!!!

Linda Moran said...

Anne - next time we do flowers I will send some your way - just promise me pics of how you use them! And - I love your garden photos - so reminds me of glorious springs other than a desert one!

Jan said...

I never tire of your garden photos. Feel free to fill in with them any time as far as I am concerned.

Just goes to show how strong and in shape you were before the accident, that you are recovering so quickly from it. Good on you!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Linda---absolutely! The photo will no doubt be on the blog......who knows what they will be used in!
Greatly appreciate it....

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I have to admit I was very surprised when they did the tests. I thought I was totally out of shape but at least the muscle strength was good. I think the right leg will be a little dicier to get back up to par, but will be patient with it and work slowly. Have learned from you how to deal with restarting the weights, so it will be okay!
And thanks on the pics---that may be tomorrow!
