More Rock Progress & Turmeric & Art Sundays

Yesterday I went through my stash of rocks til I found a rock I loved to set near the towel holder rock. It is a rock I would view allot so I wanted it to make me happy-and this one does-instead of being a heart shaped rock which I have many of this one has a heart design in the rock-loving it!

This area is now getting hard to work in with the tub in place-very dark towards the floor and the water pipes are there too-so I think I will start on the other end of the tub next. 

On another topic totally-I have been taking a turmeric supplement in hopes to ward off alzheimer disease especially and is also to aid in decreasing inflammation in the body-which aids in dealing with arthritis.  After discussing with a friend about the negatives of cortizone shots to aid in the pain and inflammation I started doing some reading online. Found several on alternatives to the shots. One thing that caught my interest was a different more potent form of turmeric which I didn't know about an extract called BCM-95 and the suggested dose was 1000 mg three times a day with food-are any of you familiar with this and perhaps taking it? Does it work for you to get the inflammation and pain down. thanks.  I am thinking now after reading about all the negatives to the shots which I didn't realize there were so many-I am going to stop those cortizone shots and work on finding a healthier alternative.

  Also those of you from blogging days at Yahoo 360 and Multiply-remember Art Sundays??? I always loved that event very much. It was started back up again for a time on the blog Blogster, but that platform was so outdated it did not work well with sharing photos.-Since I really enjoyed that I am going to start that up again on my Hummingbird blog-link in the top right column-everyone is welcome to join in. Here is the first post for details Hope you will join in and share art

Happy Sunday everyone!

Rock Progress

  If you are just visiting check my last post for information on this project.
This is about 7-8 hours of work in the last two days. My what just a couple years makes in the flexibility of my  body lol-I am constantly getting up and down from sitting on the floor and also changing the water-outdoors. Brrr back to cold  today too

This is kind of a difficult area to work in around the tub, but not too bad. This summer I am going to have to go searching for more rocks for the long wall in the back-that is always a fun day though

I am Playing With Rocks Again

Happy Monday!

    I don't think I have followers here any more from my Yahoo 360 and Multiply blogging days-but back then-and it has been several years now I started a rock project in my bathroom.  If you use the search tool and put in rock shower allot of posts with photos should still come up-
   My shower was finished several years ago, and I started on this corner area where the claw foot tub is and got one wall done and worked up to this area of the tub. Since we only have one bathroom in our home it is difficult to work and still be able to use it.  Also back  in '08 when the economy tanked going forward til just a couple years ago hubby had to restart his business and go back to work. 
   The above photos will enlarge more-just click on them. I believe one of the last rocks I placed was that large one to the left in second photo. That rock was a really awesome find as it has a big ball type formation that works perfect for a towel hook-love it.  All the rocks I found on our property here, or in nearby streams. The rock shower also has many rocks from all over the world from blog friends that mailed me a rock-really love that too.
   Long story short-our bathroom is still not finished. I did texture my walls which I have posted photos of, but have not finished those do to wanting to get the ceiling finished and on it goes lol. If you put in the search tool tissue paper walls posts with photos should come up.
    So anyways Larry just can not physically do this kind of work any more, I have gotten busy having fun with spinning etc--but last week he decided to hire a couple we know that work together well doing house projects. So I am excited about the possibility of our bathroom getting finished. We had collected vintage light fixtures, a very awesome sink and faucet set up so I am getting more excited all the time.
    Today I sorted through rocks and got busy putting up rocks in this area. I am planning to stick with this project and put up all the rocks that I am able to. The tub will need to come out so I can do the back wall and also to get the tile on the floor in place. 

So this is my new project do you have one??

We are still having spring weather so still able to get my veggie garden set for spring. Nice to be able to get outdoors for a walk again and work a little

Good Morning

Good Morning awesome friends!

       I started baking up some roll out cookies last nite, finishing them up this morning. I am making gluten free batches of peanut butter and gingerbread. Using animal cutters of bear, moose, howling wolf, dragonfly, bison and more in anticipation of our Yellowstone trip and to brighten up these cold wintry days here too-thought these would be fun and may just make a batch for us when the trip arrives. Will be surprising my travel partner with these later on today.-Fun!!

     Have a Happy day.
