I have decided to end the blog, I do not have the time or energy.  My darling is quite ill, we may not make it.  I like to come back and read some of my past posts every now and then.  Some give me lots of chuckles and good memories.  Thank you readers (the one or two or casual lurker for coming by)  Enjoy every day of your life!

this is what I do when not working

This is my last hurrah, painting inside house.  The last time I painted was 11 years ago, I got my living room and upstairs bathroom done during my injury.  This is post surgery.  The kitchen is the killer....12 by 48...half trim oil, the other latex.  I painted my ceiling 6 times before it was perfect.  I am type A nuff said.................  Also getting new floor and putting white subway tile on back splash.  The middle tile is the floor color. Half of kitchen is painted.  I wish I was at cafe du monde

Just when................

Ya think all is falling into place....the shoulder will never be the same but functional...I am OK with that...the skies of doom and gloom start....Yeah, it's true.........seems I tore my Achilles tendon during my nightmare oh those two years ago.  Now I have a blasted brace on my foot.  Trying to look on the upside...went outside to get my oak leaf hydrangeas in the ground...put a rather lovely white plastic bag on said leg. Got those things in...and others small plants!  If this thing does not heal I may have more surgery, haven't thought that far ahead...don't want to!!!

I hate this age thing,  I do believe if the body was 20 years younger, one could heal faster!!!  I am still working, you can't miss me! Damn body!!!!

Back to work I go

Well, I start back this week....mixed feelings, but money always wins me over.  Six more years then semi retirement...... My dawling is retiring in 33 months (yes, he is counting it down)!
I didn't get anything done these past 12 weeks....pain, and PT took my life over.  I did start maybe 10 different projects....never to complete more than likely.......
Oh, we got nearly 10 more inches of the white stuff...where are you spring?

Weather is the same as previous month

Nothing different, we are still in Winter...only the month changedPrevious picture of snow applies here...I have a feeling our heating bill will change.  I really would love this weather if I didn't have a gimp shoulder.  I can't do a lot of what I would love to do in the I sit, and sit.  Sometimes I work on simple needlework projects, but frankly, my mind gets bored after a whileReading gets boringpretty much a lot of things get boring.  My dawling took me to the Philly garden show...and to see our daughter....only my dawling was getting over a very bad case of Norovirus, then came down with a bad head that was that!  We are home, watching the snow,

he is in bed sleeping.  I am here.  Pictures I did take............

Working on new Baltimore pattern

Since I am unable to use my arms for sewing on my machine or rug hooking I have gone back to hand sewing.  Needleturn for my new quilt.  I have posted a picture of an old pattern 12 inches (heart) then my new one which is huge (22 inches) I will make 22 of them.  The wreath is the first......... Plus added pictures of quilt bag I made for the girls I work with on the weekends.  I still have 3 more to go but until I can get back into the machine I will be doing needleturn.
