WOYWW #516

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Easter! My back is still in pain, kind of like a knife stuck in the middle (and to the right) of my back. If I don't move, everything is fine, but when I do move - ouch! The knife makes itself known! Anyway, lots of time with a heating pad, and at the chiropractor, and off work. But I am off pain meds, so progress. My daughter came for the weekend, which was wonderful, but not much happened in the craft room:



but it's still a mess!

However, the Easter Bunny came, as he does every year, no matter how old we get! Nice bunny!

and DD brought flowers as well! 

Easter dinner was lovely, I cooked a ham in the crock pot - but forgot to turn it on! 4:00 came around, and it was cold! Oh dear - popped it onto high and announced a late dinner, but we turned it into a l-o-n-g dinner! started appetizers



appetizers...and yes I put a shrimp on my egg and it was delicious...

then played a game of Labrynth...


then dinner...



then angel food cake with fresh strawberry sauce for dessert...

I think we were done by 10:00pm!


Ham and Navy Bean soup the next day - so good!

Nothing much from Inky and Mittsy today, Inky seems to be in an especially feisty mood, and Mittsy is playing into it! Lots of growling and hissing, and I can almost hear giggles from Mittsy!

Have a great week!

Hi Linda, you are not alone, I've forgotten to turn the oven on before now too! Your meal looks delightful though. Hope your back gets sorted soon, it's not nice I know. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #4 X

Ouch, poor you! Back pain is truly awful so I really hope it improves soon. Love the look of the drawn out and belated dinner. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW and have a great week, with love and God Bless, Caro x (#20)

Haha! I've done the same before and forgotten to turn the slow cooker on! You did well to save the day and it all looks very tasty, especially the soup - I could easily live on soup. Your back pain's not good at all - hope you get better soon. Have a good week. Elizabeth x #31

I am only smiling because we've all been there, done that... but it's worse with company waiting to be fed! Glad it turned out well. Helen #1

Your desk isn't messy, Linda, it's just busy! Nice and productive. What an absolute disaster to forget to turn on the cooker!!! It sounds as if all was well in the end, though, and all your fabulous food photos made my mouth water! It sounds as if you had a great time even if things did have to run a bit late!

Happy WOYWW,

Oh yes we have all been there but what a wonderful way to spend time with the family playing games with nibbles inbetween. The ham looks worth the extra wait and to have left overs to use the following day is always a bonus in my eyes. Glad the Easter Bunny made an appearance again, he always pops in to us too..
I hope your back pain heals fast, it's horrid is back pain. Fingers crossed it doesn't take the fun out of creating.
Happy WoywW & hugs to Inky & Mittsy.. Tracey #5

At least all ended well with the meal Linda. All the courses look delicious. Clever to keep your UFOs close at hand, they are more likely to get finished that wa. I must try that lol. Hope the back keeps improving. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #6

Ooh what a delight this week, a busy and interesting desk, yummy food and lots of fun! I do hope your back is better soon and it's good news that you are off the meds, it sounds like you are slowly getting there.
Hope you have a good week,

It looks like you've had a nice Easter despite the back but I do hope it gets better soon. Happy belated WOYWW, Angela x21x

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Those two keep each other entertained, don't they? Looks like you had a great Easter - your food makes me hungry even though I've just eaten! Hope your back feels better soon. I hate it when that happens! Gotta be careful how you lift things. Happy weekend! zsuzsa #24
