Bags are packed for Eureka Springs

Well the bags are packed but the car is not loaded---it is just too HOT!  I am waiting until morning to load the car---hopefully it will be a bit cooler.  I  just have some last minute things to get together, like my clothes and personal things.  I plan to stop at the lake on my way home so I'm having to think what I will need for after the workshop.  My good friend Janice is going to come spend a few days with me for some much needed girl time.

Tonite I plan to have a nice dinner with my husband and watch some TV and do a little hooking on
Cape Ann.  Here it is a work in progress.  I am planning it for my new bathroom...I normally go for dark backgrounds but wanted to keep it light and soft for the bathroom.

OOOPs---I see my toes---I just had a pedicure yesterday, so I guess it is okay.

I have a love-hate relationship with my foam roller---it hurts like ****** but I am hoping the results will be worth the pain.  I am also doing some new stretches and plan to do some more strength training to help with my running.  It has been too hot for me to run outdoors so I have been depending on the gym.  I need to be doing some long runs in preparation for the half marathon on October 16th which I haven't been doing so I hope some cooler weather is on the way.  Here is  a picture of my foam roller.

  It is 6 inches in diameter and 24 inches long.   It is like getting a deep tissue massage by rolling your body over the roller---you can google it if you are really interested.  All I can say is "ouch"!!!!

Okay time for dinner---have a great day!


  1. The foam roller is very interesting!! I might have to try one!! Have a great show!

  2. Beautiful colors in Cape Ann ~ I forgot to add that to my other comment!
