More Pink

I made that yesterday. I am still not satisfied, it is a bit too hot and clay gets really sticky. Of course I don't have time to put it in fridge when I want to do something :). (Oh, ok... honestly, that is just an excuse - in real I just don't have any good ideas what to do.)

I have so many beads already but I am just not in the mood for putting them together, and I don't like most of them... Guess I am just a little depressed lately. I wonder - how much ice cream will I have to eat to feel better???

Today's Work

I just had to play with clay today a little. Sitting at work is killing me, but I feel a bit better and it was not that bad. I just had to get up more often, that's it.

I don't like these canes too much, now I am sorry I didn't use some brighter color instead of that dark blue - but it looked quite well before I reduced the cane. Oh well, I will do better next time. Tomorrow, if Nina stays at the seaside with my parents. They left a week ago and unfortunately weather is not really good, so they will perhaps come home sooner than they planned.

And btw, today I discovered that we can resize pics here, during creating posts or editing them. I haven't noticed that before, and since I usually don't read instructions and tips and manuals and such things, there are some useful features I have no idea about, I guess. Maybe it is time I read about posting here :).

I can't do anything, I still have pain in my back and left leg. It got worse again few days ago. My doctor said I should get used to having pain; and that I should get used to taking pain killing pills. Well, my dear doctor, I don't want that! I am sure there is something that can be done about my problem. Which also is a problem of many of you out there. What do you do? How do you fight against it? My strategy:

1. Start exercising (Today! Maybe tomorrow... Or after tomorrow... Nah, I will try today, if I feel good enough later)
2. Lose weight (slowly... and it is about time! I still have to sign contract with my FB about this, it will be like competition - and of course I intend to win!)
3. Go to the therapy (I have just called to the medical center - waiting time: up to 6 months! They must be kidding!)
4. Go for a walk every day (starting today! And just for the record, I will not go for a walk when it is raining or snowing or when I have guests or I am somewhere or have work to do or,... yep, you are right, I don't like walks)
5. Sit less (tough one, but I will try - maybe I will have to stand in front of my computer now instead of sitting; I will think about re-modeling my desk!)
6. Lift things carefuly (I will do my best... I think it is about time I get myself a husband. Someone who will lift things and carry heavy bags and put socks on my feet when I am too sore to bend, and bring me a glass of water and things like that)
7. Make an appointment with chyropractor (next week, I think)

Ummmm... any other suggestions??? What can I do? What should I do? Thank you!

A Gift From Australia

Yesterday I received a package, sent from far away Australia. Here are some of the things I got. Well, Nina as well. She was so happy - and so was I!

I was very excited as I got texture sheet and shapelets I couldn't get here. And Sculpy III polymer clay, which I wanted to try. I just wonder if it is any different than Fimo. I will work with it this weekend, I hope. I had to try stamplet, shapelets and texture sheet... here is my first try on scrap clay; it's not baked yet, I will finish these figures after I bake them. I just love these curly patterns! Oh, and I also got a big plate with 9 face moulds for dolls. Picture of that will follow.

Looks cool, huh? Thanks so much for everything, Stu! You really are a sweet guy!

Summer Work


It has been a while since my last post. After being on sick leave for two weeks because of my back and leg, I went to work for few days and then my vacation started. My back is better now and not sore any more, but leg is still not completely fine. And I just remembered that I forgot to take massage machine at my parents house today!! How silly! Oh well, I will be going there every day next week anyway as they will take care of Nina while I am at work, so I can get it then.

As usually (at least in last few years) we spent vacation on Croatian coast. Unfortunately, I couldn't go scuba diving because of my back. And I wanted to go under water so much! I was snorkling, of course, I don't usually go to the sea without my mask and fins, but that is just not the same. I will have to wait until next vacation. Nina is diving really good as well and goes quite deep - I can't wait she is old enough to go to scuba diving course. If she wanted, but she is a little mermaid and I am sure she will like it.

Few last days at the coast were cloudy and rainy, and it is the same here... but it's good to be back home anyway. Except unpacking, of course, that is the bad part of it!!

I had all the things for work there, but at first it was too hot to work and later I was just too lazy, I guess, so I didn't do as much as I planned. Here is a part of what I have been doing there (I gave few things away before I was able to take pics).
