I went on our adventure anyway because sometimes this age-activated Degenerous of the lower back amounts to a few minutes of wincing. Sometimes it takes days. This time it's a doozie, so I spent last evening reeking of "muscle rub," sprawled on top of a heating pad. Lemme tell ya, I sang like a stepped-on canary every time I moved. Sleeping was another adventure, even with a potion. I'm carrying several pieces of luggage under my eyeballs this morning.
Nevermore, I'm up and around and I know the more I can do that, the better it will be. Still, I don't think it's a good idea to be too rowdy, so I won't be joining the other playmates over at Pixie's to help finish off the trim on the tree house today. I'll be sending my card via messenger.
Excuse me? Did I just hear one of you say, "'Tis fine with us, since she does more yammering than hammering anyway!" How dare you! I resemble that remark!

All the papers, bling, and corner embellies are from Christmases past, shiny, and delicious. I'm sending my Mr. Snowman off to play in the "Snippets Challenge 37" over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. Headmistress Di is away visiting one of our United States, shopping at lots of our craft stores, and having a ball! She won't have time, of course, to do a roll call this week, but all the linkie playmates will visit each other, so do join in!
Right next to the sparkly San Francisco Bay is a tiny part of shoreline dedicated to kids and creativity. Apparently it has been there for decades, but somehow the Mister and I never heard about it Way Back When, so we never took DS there. He is not being so remiss with his own DSes! They love it and so did we.
It made me smile down to my toes to see all the parents with their little buggers pounding nails willy-nilly, riding the zip line, and painting whatever the heck they wanted in whatever colors they wanted. Everywhere you looked, fun was being had with reckless abandon! If you live anywhere near the Bay Area with kidlets, you should check it out. I guarantee you'll turn into a seven-year-old yourself!
Well, with my back belly up, I did this for a while:
