We didn't get any donuts last week, on National Donut day. It was too hot. I can eat a few donut holes in warm weather, but not a real donut. This bag came from a previous visit to one of our favorite donuts shops in Portland, Sesame Donuts. I love this bag.
There has been a craft compilation around here, which is wonderful. I sewed a new blouse and finished a cross stitch I had been working on for a year. I will show both soon.
My back is doing a 100-times better. I wasn't sure if it was going to get better or worse, and am so happy I stayed down, relaxed, and didn't push it. Doing too much is what has made it worse in the past. I keep referencing this book, 8 Steps to Pain Free Back, which has helped me before and was so valuable to read again. I'm back on the elliptical trainer now, pain free, but am holding off on Barre3 for another few days.
Unrelated to all this-
One of my favorite things is to come up with absurd apps with Pete and the girls. Right now, I am working on a "where did I put my coffee?" app. It would ask questions, most of which are unrelated to actually finding the coffee cup that I have lost in the house. It's more like a conversation, which might or might not help me remember where I put my coffee. It ends suggesting I pour another cup and not worry about it. We never actually create theses apps (yet) just talk about them a whole lot. They are little art/science/life projects, in digital form. I found this video 30 weird apps made by Mental Floss and was SO EXCITED by the craziness of these apps. My favorite, hands down, is the one where you just press a button for as long as you can.
