Project for the Mobility Challenged

Since I've been unable to walk around as usual, I've been doing a lot of reading (stalking various blogs like NewlyWoodwards- have you seen their home pictures?! Swoon!). Unfortunately, this means that my to do list is getting huge. :)

Anyway, the other day while couch surfing I stumbled upon the blog Under the Table and Dreaming. So looked a bit and then crawled under the table. It was wonderful. It has so many good ideas, and here is one I can try while in my (wheel) chair.

It's mini bird seed trees, and you can see the full post {here}.

Watch the birds enjoy their treat! :)

If I had only known..

I've been looking for a coffee table for my t.v. room for quite a while now. Unfortunately, I'm a little unsure of what I want. Some storage would be nice, but I already have too many "heavy" pieces in the room, and am afraid that something with storage would add too much. I would prefer something durable and unusual.

Luckily, while couch surfing today, I think I found an alternative.

Topsy Turvy made this guy out of an old window! See the full post here.

Once I'm back on my feet, I'm definitely going to try this.

Enjoy! :)

Long Time Gone (Boy do I have a story for you!)

Sorry I've been MIA. My Memorial Day weekend was good, until the end. Me and the boy headed to a Kentucky State Park to do some camping. And of course a whole lot of eating of the usuals- hot dogs, hamburgers, and smores! Yummy!

Everything was going good until the very last day. We were starting to pack up when Alby and I headed to the bathroom, which was up a slight hill. Going up was fine, coming down was the problem. Unfortunately, Alby wanted to walk down the hill, and I wanted to use the stairs. Alby won and I lost, big time!

Coming down the hill, I fell and fractured (broke) both sides of my ankle. Big ouchie! Pain everywhere! Needless to say, the boy took me to the hospital (at warp speed- no complaints here) where they gave me glorious pain meds and x-rayed the boo-boo. To make a long story short, I'll be having surgery this week where they will insert screws to help the ankle heal.

What can I say, when I do it, I do it right!

How was your weekend?
