Thankful for my mobility & mojo

Yes, I’m mobile again! Well, mostly anyway. The foot is still pretty sore, but that’s to be expected.  I mean, hello! I had a chunk of bone loped off! Of course it’s going to be just a tad bit sore for a while.  /sarcasm

But I’m able to get around pretty good.  to the point that the crutches have stood, untouched in my room for over two weeks now.  Awesome.  If you are the sort who likes stitches, scabs, & scars, feel free to check out the last photo of my stitches, the shot of the scabbed over incision, and the more recent shot of my lovely scar.

On another note, you may have noticed the tumbleweeds blowing through the ol’ blog here.  Yup, it’s been a while since I updated regularly.  I assure you, the bloggy break was not planned, but rather, the result of a massive creative block.  I’m talking everything was so blocked up, it really wasn’t funny. I couldn’t write, I couldn’t scrap, even my photography suffered.  When it came to being creative, there just wasn’t anything there.

Then, I had to make cupcakes for my son’s birthday celebration.  Thankfully my mom was here, because I was very close to a breakdown over the fact that I just could not come up with any faces that looked remotely like the Star Wars characters my son wanted.  But Gramma swooped in and just started creating anything. I watched her shape a rose out of fondant, then a bear shape.  For her, it was like working with clay.  Slowly ideas formed, and before long, I had the cookie cutters out, and cut out letters to form my son’s name, and a train to put on the cupcakes.  Gramma made a Yoda head & decorated the train, and by that time, GeekBoy had joined us, and began making his own creations, swearing that the globs of multi-colored frosting resembled clone troopers and battle droids.  Then I got inspired for an R2D2 head.

And now, the creative block in my brain seems to be lifted.  At least, I can write, and take photos again.  Just in time as I have a pretty big Christmas project I’m working on that requires quite a bit of creativity, and I’m up against a deadline.  *S*
