Behind & Backwards...
Today is a new beginning. I accept this day and will honor it to my best ability. As for my post title...I am so far behind that I feel I should simply start and work backwards. To set the stage as to why I am so far behind I lost 9 days to a road trip I shall explain and post later. Upon returning home I have now lost another 5 days to severe back and leg pain that is knocking me down. Fortunately I am on the mend as Mr. C had a doctor appointment Tuesday AM that I was able to take. Our wonderful GP took great care of me and I spent my day having a shot, going to Physical Therapy for treatment, the pharmacy for additional meds and the hospital for X-Rays. What a day and my beloved husband, Mr. C, was right there supporting me and taking care of me. Nothing major and nothing new...I have had this many times before but somehow this is the worst ever. I know I will be fine but when the pain takes over my ability to walk, sit, stand, or recline I just simply get scared. Today I have my "Big Girl" panties on and will take it very slowly and carefully.
While I was gone I celebrated my birthday. On Tuesday I got another year older and now participate in Medi-Care. Joy or Sorrow...to be determined. This lovely photo is a my attempt to show you the beautiful peacock colors and hand knit stitching by my dear friend Sandy.
Sandy knit me a beautiful neck muffler in my favorite colors. I love this scarf as much as I love Sandy! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend and for taking such good care of me. Sandy has visited us here and knows just how cold it gets. This neck muffler is also a head scarf which warms the ears. So clever!
Another wonderful gift was waiting for me at the post office. My dear pen pal, Dogwood, had emailed me not long ago to confirm my favorite color. What a wonderful surprise to receive this uber cute shopping bag. How clever to embellish a purchased boring bag with beautiful fabric, tatting lace and ribbons. I adore this and will use it proudly. Thank you bestest pen pal ever!
Now I am back to reality and doing some much needed laundry...slowly and carefully is my motto today.
Thank you each and every faithful follower for your lovely comments on my "borrowed computer" post. I am now on my own computer and what a blessing.
September has arrived and we had the most glorious rain on Labor Day Monday. We had approximately an inch and one half of rain. The fires around us are now either out or getting close to complete containment. The smoke is dissipated from our airspace and I am grateful.
I am hoping each of you are safe and enjoying this Summer to Fall transition. And for my overseas friends your Winter to Spring transition.
Now to get back to creating...
