this is where i woke up on new years day! I spent the night on a nest of couch cushions sleeping with marlaina and torry pie! they rang in the new year with me! hubby went to bed with his hurt back, leaving us to fend for ourselves. marlaina didnt fall to sleep until 12:30 am and Torry laid awake playing with a little battery operated candle until about 1:00. then me, the poor old gammie? I dozed on and off the rest of the night, one would cough, one would fall off the cushions, one would disappear all together! Marlaina twice managed to turn herself totally around and end up and the bottom.. sort of freaked me out! anyways finally around 4:30 I thought.. maybe I could get two solid hours in if I could really just fall asleep... but next thing I knew marlaina was sitting up looking at me and singing some little song or talking about something... that was at 6:00 am.. so we cuddled until it was clear to me that she was ready to get up and moving around! soon after Torry woke up at 7:00... I did take a 45 minute nap around noon. I love those babies.. but those overnights are not good for this gammie pie!
the rest of the day I played in my craft room with my favorite little case, Its full of little pieces of mohair and upolstery fabrics perfect for miniature bear making. I worked on a snowman, for a late christmas gift for a flickr friend. I hope he likes it! I'll show you when its finished.
next on my crafty agenda, will be a miniature new years bear! I feel him in my finger tips.. he wants to be born! lol!
well see what he ends up being.. im my head right now, hes a bear.. but that doesnt mean anything!
The other thing i did yesterday was make a big pot of creamy cheesy potato and ham soup with carrots and brocoli in it. omg... is it good! not good for the start of this years weight loss journey though.. well as soon as this pot of soup is gone... I'll get started... really... I will.. I have a wedding on oct 5. wont be fat for that!
Well, if I get off the computer right now, that gives me 40 minutes to get ready for work.. so I better go!
happy jan 2, 2013 everyone!
