I like routine. I am one of those people who don't mind a very planned schedule. That was one of the most difficult things I found when I first retired. Teaching my day was very planned - overly planned. Not so being at home. Then a routine developed. Not a hard and fast, can't be varied, but still somewhat of a routine. Monday is my day for working on all my challenge pieces. Not yesterday. Yesterday I played plumber's helper to my brother. Then we had to wait for a "real" plumber to show up to finish up the job. Ray did not have the tools we needed. So it was a day of plumbing work and waiting. But on the very positive side I have a new kitchen faucet that WORKS!! I am so happy!
Joey's challenge was to use the tangle whirlee as a starter in the center of the round tile. From there I did a lot of sitting and staring. I could not figure what to add to this tile. Finally made a border of pooma them just added some flowers and embellishments. And a dash of color!
Diva's challenge was to use the tangle somnee. It reminds me of the tinker toys I played with as a child. They were so much fun! Sort of like this tangle.
While rearranging some craft supplies (some people call it cleaning, I really can't say that happened), I found some vellum. so for my inchie this week I used vellum. On the front I did the famous guard from the UK. Then on the back I did the flag. I wanted a more subdued look for the flag. May have to try this approach again!
And finally here is my last entry for the 100 days project. This is day 34 and 35. I really love doing that rose in the center. The tangle is called roza and is very simple and soooo pretty!
Almost finished with my Everglades bike (virtual) race. Hope to have it done soon. I am getting a really good pace - my best yet was today! I know it doesn't compare to a real athlete but I am proud of the time I got - a little over 8 minutes for a mile! I do about 3 miles each day. Again I know that isn't great but hey, folks, when I started I was dying at about a 1/2 a mile! This is progress. Just slow progress. I also probably shouldn't admit this but we are friends and I trust you not to tell - but the first time we sat the bike up, I could not get on. I wanted to so badly it almost made me cry but I could not stretch my leg enough to get on it. Ray, bless his soul, was very patient and helped me finally get on the bike. Now? I can easily get on with no help so my muscles are getting more flexible! Again, slow progress.
Take care and thanks for dropping by to say hello! I think I shall go turn the water on and off in the kitchen for a few moments and enjoy the ease of running water! Hugs!!
