I'm Tired!....But Before I Head Back To Bed.....!

         For those of you who get my blog in your 'Google Friend Connect' feed, I tried to give you a 'heads up' by using this header photo....I'M TIRED AND DRAGGING today. :-( Truth is...I've been tired and dragging for a few days now. All I wanna do is sleep!
      I'm having such a hard time motivating myself to 'get-the-lead-out'!...'move-it! move-it!'...or -get-a-move-on'!!! I hate to whine about it.....Okay, I usually like to whine about it. It gives me something to write about! ^_^ But I didn't wanna whine about it TODAY! What I wanted to do today is show you the next installment of things I received from my Giveaway win.....Okay, I'll still do that...since you twisted my arm! LOL
      It's a head-band! The tag says that it was hand-knitted with 100% hand-painted wool yarn by Donna Rose Derrer. I tried to find out if she had an Etsy shop, but I couldn't find it...if she has one...
       It's so well-made! And it has this gorgeous large handmade ceramic button on it too! She put a lot of work into this gift...and I'm very appreciative. :-] The tag also says that the yarn colors are called 'northern lights'...
        Greens, blues, purple, reds, browns and hints of gold. Soooo pretty! A sky full of these colors would be just breath-taking...And it's soooooo soft too! This will definitely be mine!! ^_^
      I also got a couple of things I can use in my crochet pocketbook making!...
       This one is sorta like a long pocket insert that you could use for compartments inside a purse!...I'm not sure if that was the intended purpose, but that's what I think I'm going to use it for. You know how much I hate doing pocketbook linings!! Any space that's covered...CHECK! :-))
       And who couldn't use a little extra place inside their purse to put their credit card, lipstick, change, gum, car keys, extra crochet thread......Okay, so maybe that last one is just 'me'! LOL
      Speaking of pocketbook linings though, this next gift is DEFINITELY gonna come in handy!...
      It looks like a pocketbook, but it's light-weight like a lining. Hmmm...I think that's exactly what I'll use it for!! ^_^
      I love it!! And why didn't I think of this before! If all I had to do was sew in an already made lining, I could have been in the crochet bag-making business long before now!! :-] Anyway!!...The bag comes from an Etsy shop called AStonesThrow. She has the cutest handmade and pleated bags!
      Wasn't this a great Giveaway box?! :-) And guess what?! THAT'S NOT ALL!!! I know! You can't believe it either! ^_^ There's one more post coming up tomorrow with the last of my items I won in it. Hopefully I'll be feeling well enough to show it to you. With all this exhaustion and dragging, I'm starting to think that maybe my body is trying to come down with something. :-(
      Wouldn't it just soon as hubby gets the 'all-clear'...I get sick!...*shaking my head*...Hubby had his check-up at the doctor yesterday, after being on a new cholesterol lowering drug for the last six months.....He had blood-work done last week in preparation for yesterday's visit, and after the doctor looked at the results he was amazed! 
       His cholesterol level, six months ago, was 183. As of yesterday...123!!! It dropped 60 points in only six months!! :-) Frankly, I was kinda amazed too! Especially since I've been prying pastries and fast-food from his white-knuckled fists for the last six months!! LOL He is so bad with the eating habits!...I mean, he gained 2 pounds, but his cholesterol dropped by 60 points!! It NEVER would work like that for me!! ^_^ *wheeze, wheeze...cough! cough!*
       Okay....that was a wee bit of an exaggeration. I'm not wheezing or coughing...yet! LOL The way I'm feeling though, I'm gonna have a serious 'whine'-fest going pretty soon!!! ^_^
      Before I move on and head back to my covers though, let me show you my 'secret' project that I was working on! ^_^.... caught me again! *Teehee* That was another wee bit of exaggeration...This is NOT my 'secret' project. This is what my secret project turned into!! LOL What it was going to be was a 'T.V. Remote Control caddy'! You know..the kind you hang over the arm of your favorite chair. The kind that will hold your T.V. remotes, pens, T.V. Guide puzzle books, and stuff like that!
       I was all into it! Then I kept having to take it apart because I kept getting the dimensions wrong...
        Then it didn't feel heavy enough. Then it wasn't colorful enough. Then it didn't look good....
        Then the 'tired' started to set in...Then it was pulled almost all apart, folded in half, some buttons was added, and WALLAH...a bracelet cuff!! ^_^
      "What are you looking at?!!" LOL...I still may work on the T.V. Remote control caddy another time. But right now....I'm tired! I'm not doing much of anything today...except sleep.
      The sweet lady that's coming to clean the house today can entertain me with the sound of the whirring vacuum cleaner! ^_^ 
      I did do something else with my brainless tired self...
        I crocheted a quick and 'Ugly' brooch hat...
       ..just because I liked the square button that was sitting there staring me in the face! :-)) Okay.....I really am tired...And this little guy sitting on the wall staring at me is not helping the situation one bit!!
        *Yawn*.....You can guess where I'm headed. I hope you all...*yawn*....have a good day!....*yawn* ......Zzzzzzzzzz!

Sapped, low,
weary, slow.

Dragging about,
plum tuckered out.

Fatigued, spent,
No power surge sent.

Depleted, drained,
almost empty-brained.

Pooped, sucked dry,
out of gas, can't try.

Exhausted, fried,
 done in, mopey-eyed.

Tired? There's no doubt!
'Cause I'm all petered out.


  1. Hope you get some rest and feel better soon, love your gifts, always great to receive something in the post :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. What's your weather like? It's been rainy here for days and although I love the rain, it makes me sooo sleepy sometimes.

    That giveaway box was the best!!! Wow, so much variety.

    Very happy to hear about your Hubby - that's great news!

    Hope you're feeling better soon Wugs...

  3. Bee happy, Thank you so much for the concern. I slept all morning and I do feel a bit better. Hopefully I've headed whatever it is 'off at the pass'! ^_^ And you're right about getting something in the post. It's always nice!..Have a good rest of the day! :-)

  4. Lisa, We've got rain and clouds and....*gulp*...snow on the way! *shaking my head*...I'm sure that's part of the reason I'm so tired and achy! I won't be sorry to see it head outta here!!...And how right you are about that Giveaway box! This is the best gift I ever won!! :-) I hope you get a gift of sunshine soon...and when you do...send someof it our way, will ya! LOL

  5. Not sounding good my friend. You better get some rest, drink plenty of fluids and get some chicken soup going.

    Tell Jeff congrats on his nice Dr. results! That never happens to me either!

    I'm really loving all the goodies you got in that gift box....and....I'm a bit jealous too! LOL ENJOY!

  6. CinLynn, Hi Bead! Just wanted you to know...I slept most of the day, off and on. I felt a little better, finished the studying for the meeting, and I'm probably going back down early tonight. It hasn't gotten any worse, so.....GOOD! :-] And about the box, you're was a doozey of a box!! ^_^ I'm sharing the last of it tomorrow. I'm actually gonna share some of the things along with my Giveaways. I hate to see it go to waste just sitting around here! Other things will become parts to my creations in the shop...Wanna come and help me get it all done?! ^_^ Have a good evening my friend!

  7. Great news about your hubby ;-) But im really sorry to hear your feeling poorly i hope you start to feel better very soon. I really like your parcel goodies enjoy them, dee x

  8. delia, Thank you for the encouragement. Yes, hubby is feeling great right now. Me, on the other hand, I'm 'working at it'!! LOL A 'boat-load' of rest and sleep today though did help! We'll take it as it comes and see what tomorrow brings! ^_^ As I always say: "It is what it is"!!...Have a good rest of the day, Dee!

  9. Gosh I do hope that you aren't getting sick & that you're just in need of some sleep. Feel better soon.

    That's wonderful news about hubby's cholesterol level.

    I love the buttons you used for the bracelet cuff! I was hunting through my button collection last night. I have hundreds of buttons but none that suited the project I was working on. I guess that means I get to go shopping ;)

  10. Jo-anne, Thank you for the concern. I think I figured out what the problem was...*shaking my head*...HORMONES!! UGH! By the way, thank you also for the complement on the buttons. I have so many of them that I've got to start using them on something!! I think I'll be making more pocketbooks soon too!...Have a good day Jo!
