Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough.

Stepping stones

I love stepping stones, whether they be in the garden or along the house, I know they will lead  me somewhere. Here is a fun DIY for you to do and a photo of how they could be arranged alongside your home (home not included!). Just take a large leaf, add a cardboard mold, some cement and voilĂ  a beautiful stepping stone. 


Another variation would be to put the leaf over some sand and then pour the cement. Instant patterned bowl!
