Miserable Thursday & freebie

Fibro still in high gear. Went to my appointment, quick stop at store to pick up an item needed for dinner, then home to crash. Did get some good news. My friend, Tosha, has been booked for 3 craft fairs based on customers who loved her products! I'm so excited for her and have promised to create some thank you cards for her. She and her husband put together a flyer about the products, which you can download here, if interested.
Today I tried a roll on essential oil blend that has magnesium, camomile, marjoram, and lavender. Supposed to help relax muscles. I put some along my jaw line because TMJ acting up too and it really helped! Not much relief on neck but also put some on the soles of my feet and was able to drop off quickly for a nap. Nice how something so simple (and much less toxic than many medications) can help.

Here is today's zip of Boho Baby:

Midweek freebie of Boho Baby

Having fibro flare-up so short post. Last night there was a hint of autumn in the air and despite pain, it had me smiling. Was getting the urge to bake bread and make beef stew. Temps back up again today, darn it. Still, I found some recipes that look good and am prepared for a cooler day. Here in Norfolk, when you go to the local store and look for Italian bread what you get is a loaf shaped a little shorter and fatter than the French bread that tastes about the same. According to my husband, Italian bread should be crusty on outside and soft in the middle which store bought isn't. So I've collected a few recipes and intend to try making him bread like he grew up with in New York. Also found a great looking recipe for cinnamon raisin bread. But for tonight, we will have leftover spaghetti and/or meatball sandwiches and dessert will be more cheesecake with pineapple topping.

Today's zip of Boho Baby makes me think of the Bohemian love of nature with the greens and a little owl toy.

Today is gloomy & wet. Zip 16 of Boho Baby

Got a few things done yesterday and when I visited with Dad, he looked good. He was sitting up in wheelchair and had finally agreed to let faculty barber trim moustache, beard and hair. Almost all the family called or e-mailed birthday wishes for my husband, which was very nice. He enjoyed lots of crab legs and a little Chinese food at dinner. Guess I had maybe 30 minutes to read on Kindle while he finished up. Cheesecake turned out well. With weather acting up - rainy and pressure changes - we both had aches and pains last night. My fibro gave me a fit so I had to get up and take some Tylenol and Benadryl just to take edge off so I could sleep. Better now. Going to make this an easy day though.

Today Boho Baby is going out to visit so we have a portable cradle. In addition to usual take alongs, don't forget some powder and some booties as little toes chill quickly. We're adding to nursery decor too with some word art to express one of many values we hope for baby to grow up with.

Happy Birthday to my husband & Boho Baby freebie

Today is my husband's birthday. I was up late last night making his favorite birthday cake - cheesecake with pineapple topping. Next month will be the 50th anniversary of the day we first met at a Halloween party I had in high school.

And today we have a little floral touch to Boho Baby. The zip includes a plush blanket paper, embossed paper, watercolor lavender wreath, floral border, and butterfly word art.

A little more boyish today:
BTW the background paper is supposed to be a blanket - in case you couldn't tell.

Not superstitious are you? It's Friday & 13th zip of Boho Baby

Feeling better today. Went to Dad's house to get mail & packed a few boxes with clothes to sell or give away. Quite a number of items still have tags on them, never worn. Need more boxes. Lidl features products from a different country each week and this week was Britain & Ireland. So I dropped by to see what they had. Not much actually. Picked up 2 boxes of tiny frozen tea party pastries. Should be nice for next tea party with grand-daughter. They also had some fresh croissants with hazelnut filling so I got a couple of those. I've had one before and it was good. Pass on the apple turnovers though as they are bland to the point of being tasteless. Don't have to cook tonight so will get more laundry done and do some printing of statements I need to mail to paralegal for Dad.

Today's zip is a little more boyish:

I'm prepared for tomorrow's post but this weekend I'd best get busy setting up next week. I know we need some ribbons and bows. Maybe some borders? Templates? Are you interested in brag book pages for the bracket shaped books?
