I have been very ill the past few days, so I havent done any "wreckings".

Slowly but surely, I am able to use my arms and especially my hands again at least, so I will be able to get some more done, hopefully over the next few days, depending on how many spoons I have left over! LOL

Amazing how one needs our "hands" to do a lot of things! We sometimes take them for granted.

First Wreckings!

Oh this is such fun, and so satisfying...especially when the mood suits the wrecking! LOL!!

I started to give it my own personal look! Will be adding more stuff to the front as I find things I like!

And now for some minor details....

Seeing that Trevor and I were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary and we were having a nice barbecue, just the two of us...I took the journal outside and put some nice hot coals on its pages.... LOL

This so reminded me of my childhood! I loved colouring-in books, although I am not good at drawing...I did do my best! It depicts peace and quiet...just me and my dog!

Picked some flowers from the bush in my front garden. Its called "Yesterday, today and forever" and it was planted by my late mother-in-law, many years ago!

Will be posting my first pics up tomorrow sometime... YAY!!!!!
Tomorrow the FUN begins....!!!!!!!

My sanctuary...

I went and got my sanctuary all neat and tidy and ready now. It is a little table that stands in Sven and Sharan's old room, and I used to have my PC there many moons ago, but unfortunately cannot sit at it for long periods of time.

So it has been since then, a place where I make my greeting cards and wrap gifts, and keep all my little knick knacks and such. The cards on the wall are cards I particularly keep because they are from some of my internet friends that I have made over the past few years.

The next time I sit here will be when my parcel arrives! I feel like a child waiting for father christmas to come down the chimney!

The excitement of waiting.....!!

I have ordered a copy of "Wreck this Journal". I am so very excited about it. Hubby asked me why did I want to "wreck" it! I chuckled and said: "Honey, it isnt exactly meaning "wreck like in destroy", it is something that I have never done before and I have never been good at keeping a diary/journal for longer than perhaps a month! lol..

It will arrive within two weeks, and then I am going to put up my first pics! I must say thank you to Fia for introducing it to me by way of her own "Wreck this Journal". Trevor is leaving his digital camera for me to use everyday too! I am soooooo excited...and feel like I have something else to keep me busy...besides sims! But that isnt the subject of conversation for this blog anyhow!

Okay, lets many more sleeps............!!!! (Sigh)
