Urgh...can I just say that I dislike grey rainy days!!! I woke up to a steady drizzle of cold rain this morning. After getting the boys ready and driven to school I came home and got ready for the gym. Met my friend for a good workout. Today we worked our backs and did 30 minutes on the treadmills. I'm bummed cause I put back on the 10 pounds I had lost, BUT I didn't add anything to that. So it a bit of a victory, right? BUT I am determined to lose atleast 25 pounds between now and April 1st! (Hubby should be home in April some time.)
Zeus is doing much better today. He spent about 3 hours at the 'spa' and when I picked him up he was trimmed, shiny and smelled fresh! Yesterday morning he wasn't limping nearly as bad as he was Monday night and after having his nails trimmed he barely limped at all. today he is doing even better. So my theory was pretty much confirmed. He now has a standing monthly appointment for a Spa Day! =D Here he is chillin' on the folded 3rd row seat in the truck on the ride home from the Spa. He looks pretty comfy huh?
Nothing newly made today, but I'll share a couple pieces from over the weekend and earlier. First up is my version of a Rement piece (seen here!) Each of the blueberries and cherries was hand rolled. The pie is Barbie sized and made in a bottle cap 'tin'.
Up next is actually one of the first miniatures I made...it's a pizza with everything. I was intending it to be dollhouse (1/12th) scale, but at the time I didn't know how to do that size properly. However it's perfect for Barbie. I staged the pizza with some Rement pieces and I must say it looks pretty darned good! The pizza is topped with pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, and black olives. And of course EXTRA cheese!
