How (not) to.......

The latest craze to catch my eye is hypertufa. I tried before and failed......but I am nothing if not determined!! I researched and thought and asked a few questions and came up with a new "recipe"....I set out to purchase my supplies...now....look out.....I am jumping on the faux cement band wagon!! :O)

Yesterday was the day!! Beautiful out!! Cool but warming......dry but not too humid!! PERFECT!!!

I collected my pots!! Different shapes......small.....big.....medium!! PERFECT!!!

I gathered my supplies....everything was simply PERFECT!!

I made my first batch and it was sooooo much fun.....like playing with mud.....making mud pies.....loved it.....nothing better than getting your hands in there and really shaping things!! This brings me to my point!! My mom called between batches and suggested that I wear gloves....."no!! I really need to feel what I'm sculpting" I tell her. "Won't you have a reaction?" she asked. "Heavens no!!" ......by last night my hands ......

....my hands were cracking and oozing and on fire!!

So......here's my tip......hypertufa rocks!! LOVE it....but wear surgical gloves!! :O/

Stay tuned for pix of my creations.......first though.....I must regain the feeling back in the stumps at the end of my arms......:O)

It Should Be Illegal!!

I found a deal I couldn't pass up!! Amazon has those wonderful daily deals and the other week EA Sports Active for Wii appeared for a great price!!! I also had a gift card from my swagbucks and also free shipping to boot.....so it was a deal too good to pass up...you know....I love to get a good deal on my torture!! It came Fri and I couldn't wait to try it out........once I ran out of excuses why I couldn't possibly exercise at the moment!!

I swear to you.......don't do it!! It's evil.....in a box!!! They make you.....gulp.....exercise!!! And by exercise I mean......walk....run.....lift weights....squat AND get back UP!!! Geesh!!! It truly should be illegal!! That personal trainer is something that crawled outta the swamp.......and probably drank redbull and nails for lunch!!!

Now.....perhaps I don't have a completely firm grasp on reality but I mean c'mon.......I couldn't possibly be that bad can I?????? At one point the personal trainer from hel....opaloooza started laughing hysterically at me and said..... "Oh honey.....give it up!!!" That really hurt my feelings!!! I was determined to complete the workout.....apparently.....she was not amused.....she walked off the job and said something about me being a lost cause and that they don't pay her nearly enough......How rude!!! (I'm pretty sure that's what happened!! I blacked out after I had to run around the track and then do knee lifts and then kick my bum and then.....but yea!!! I'm almost positive that's what happened!!) Who knew a video game could be so realistic!!!! :O) To be safe.....next time I'm going to "do" the video while laying on the couch with a snickers!!!

Any-hooooo.......I'll not walk for a week.....and don't even ask me to sit down and then expect me to get back up again!!!.....but other than that it's a great workout!! Can't wait to do it again!! :O)

Hope you have a great Monday!!
