Happy Memorial Day

Wishing you all a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Remember our soldiers on this weekend and wear red, white and blue, hang the flag out and have fun, fun, fun.

Very quiet at my house, just doing 'this and that' today and continue doing my hip exercises and getting stronger and stronger.

Kim's Comfort Quilt and THANK YOU to my Friends

And I was sooooooooo surprised at this beautiful quilt my quilter friend Kim gave me as a present in the Nursing home for my recovery. I put it on my bed right then and just loved it, filled with love and prayers for a good recovery. Isn't she too sweet, thanks so much Kim Haugen, Prescott, Arizona. Now I use it all the time at home on chilly nights in my recliner.

And a BIG THANK you to all my other friends who sent cards and gave me gifts, calls, flowers etc and to all my wonderful neighbors who have brought me food and to Tom who brought me home from the Nursing HOme and is always there to help me out whenever I need him or Karen. Without all of you I couldn't have gotten thru this surgery as well as I did.

Thank you, thank you, thank you sincerely.

Cool Summer nights

Here is a bead embroidery piece I just finished. I call it "Cool Summer Nights', hope you love all the color's, bright and cheerful to me. I had the smaller cab for years and never knew what to do with it. Now all of the sudden it just 'speaks' to me. A fun piece. Hope you enjoy it too.

Miss Mermaid

And here is her back.

Spring in Prescott - Miss Mermaid

Well I think Spring is finally here this week. Its been a cold, cold winter/spring here, very unusual for this part of the good old U.S.A.

Update on surgery, it went very very well and I'm very lucky, "Clarissa" will now be good for another 20 years, I sure hope they are right. It was a hard time coming alone and going thru all this alone without my sweetie, how I still miss him every, every day. sighhhhhhhh. I had Home Health Care in to help me, nurses, physical therapist, and CNA's, they all were truly wonderful, unlike the Nursing home I had to go to for rehab upon immediate release from the hospital. I'm sooooooooo glad that part of my life is over with, thank the Lord.

I continue to recover nicely at home and doing my physical therapy everyday at home, 4 times a day, I"m coming along just fine, very anxious to get out of here, but it will come in time.
And I continue on knitting and beading away waiting to heal and waiting for warmer weather to come to Prescott. Here is a Mermaid that I started down in Carefree in the winter, finally got her finished late winter here and early spring, she was a joy to work on and I'm glad she is done. I haven't found the 'right' place for her yet in our home, still looking. I hope you like her too.
