  • I’m always amazed by the creativity of Mandi at Vintage Revivals and she has a way with words that always leaves me smiling.  Her project of turning an old leather sofa into a bench just blew me away.  Check it out here.
  • Found this great idea for DIY Mason Jar Solar Lights by Thriftdee, click here.
  • Love this piece by Lindsey Stirling, “Beyond the Veil”    

Happy Weekend!

Blessings,

Mimi

  1. Thank you for sharing.
    My 12 spoons may not get me past breakfast some days (MTHFR gene mutation).
    I’ve been using an analogy about gasoline. I get plenty of unrefined gas (food, vitamins et al) but my body can’t refine it into gasoline for my car (for energy, bloodstream, etc). I like the spoon theory because it gives such finality to impact of overwhelming pain or mental “scrambled eggs”. Doesn’t matter what you want to do, you only have X spoons…
    I was able to see a very good friend yesterday who “gets” me. It was one of the most enjoyable days I’ve had in a while. I felt mostly “normal” too – big bonus. I could be myself entirely. We hadn’t seen each other in 7 years between new babies, moving, and just life. We managed to catch up completely during a nice Greek lunch, a nice backyard stroll, going to pick up the kids from school, and exploring their new playhouse for the kids.
    It was a very good day.
    Thank you Mimi as always…

    • Thanks Pam! It is great to have a day with people who just “get” you. I’m so glad you were able to get out and enjoy the day and felt up to it. Hope your spoons hold out today too!
