How to Occupy Yourself with a Broken Foot, Poldark and more

Spotted this picture a couple of weeks ago on Facebook and saved it to my computer as a reminder.  The cute bright colored lady bugs are painted rocks.  I thought it was a cleaver idea, but knew I would not remember it without a picture.  I don't think I'll do this in a flower bed, as my flower beds are too large and far from the house so I wouldn't really see them.  But, perhaps in flower pots on the deck where I could enjoy them?  


Am continuing to work on this afghan, Learning Logs.  This picture isn't absolutely up to date, as this was several sections ago; but you can see it's considerably larger than the last picture I took of it.  I'm having a problem in that I may run out of the right colors.  I actually think I have some down in the basement in my stash, but with my foot still in the boot and limited mobility; I can't go searching through my stash.  I had put what I thought was enough in the project bag long ago when I started this in the class on Crafty's to learn how to do the drop stitch work for multiple colors.  I was able to have hubby get me more of the yellow.  I sorta remembered where in my stash it was, so he found it easily; but.......didn't have much luck when I asked him to see about the rose color.  Soooooo, we'll see how this goes.  I may have to put it aside until my foot is healed and I can go back down the stairs.  I do have another project bag of yarn that I could start another project (but not sure there's enough in there either, as I planned to add to it when I got the original idea of putting specific colors together.


 I've mentioned several times lately how much tv I'm watching while elevating my broken foot.  This is Poldark.  If you've not watched this series, I highly recommend it.  Firstly, ladies...take a look at the main character.  WOW!  The scenery is captivating and reminds me of what I saw touring Ireland last fall.
 There's lots of love stories, intrigue, suspense and good guys vs bad guys.
And did I mention, the main character is sexy!!  I watched seasons one and two as part of my Amazon Prime Membership.  I'm currently using a 7 day free trial of Master Piece Theater to watch the 3rd session.  It's my understanding from a google search, that a date for season 4 will be announced sometime early summer of 2018.  Not sure how or where that session will be available, so am keeping my eyes pealed.

What are you working on?  How many work in progress do you have?  Are you out doing gardening things yet?  Spring has been fickle around the country.  Have you watched Poldark?  What did you think of it?

  1. I read the Poldark novels many moons ago.
    And yes, I have been in the garden. Preparing for our spring. Lots (and lots) of weeding. Lots of planting. And hopes for rain.

  2. Thanks for the visit. I've not read the books, but sure enjoyed watching the show. Did I mention how good looking he is, lol Glad you're getting out in the garden. It's going to be awhile before I get to that.

  3. I love those little lady bug rocks! I saw that online a long time ago and said I'd do it. Then promptly forgot I'd even seen it! So it's a good idea to save the image :) I'll do that today. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Thanks for the visit Pat. I heard the books for Poldark were quite good, but hadn't known of them prior to watching the series. I may do things in reverse and read the books next. LOL Good luck with the WIP

    Those ladybird stones would look great in pots, I think. Really bright and cheerful. Yes, I have been out in the garden when the weather allows, dividing and replanting, sowing seeds indoors, and making plans. I have lots of craft projects on the go too, which I really need to get on with!
    Best wishes
    Ellie

    1. Thanks for the visit Ellie, much appreciated. I hope to get out in the yard after the foot heals, but will be well behind in the normal yard work cycle.

  6. Those lady bugs are the cutest ever! They would look great in a potted plant.

    Never heard of Poldark before. I guess I need to explore more on my on firestick and amazon prime shows. I might actually find something I love LOL.

    Your blanket is coming along quite nicely. I hope you are able to get your boot off soon so you can get to your stash and really have a go at some crafting.

    1. So good to hear from you Marsha. Do check out Poldark, I'm chomping at the bit for season 4 to start. Am anxious to heal, and get the boot off. Right you are. Thanks for the visit and comment.

  7. I'm glad you're finding lots of fun and easy-on-the-eyes ways to occupy your time, Sandy. I agree, the main character is a handsome gentleman.

    Have a relaxing week.

    1. Thanks for the visit. So happy I found these interesting series, so much better than regular tv. Between that and my yarn...thus far, haven't gotten cabin fever.
