I am still here.......


Things are coming along nicely here, recovery is slow but I feel so much better!!!
"Thank you" to all for your sweet words of encouragement and love and all the support!!! You are the best friends a girl can have!!!
Here's a bit of what I am doing, which is not a whole lot.....having surgery when you are my age (old) is a little painful to say the least....


Enjoying the roses from the Dutchman, he really is my hero..... he was by my side the whole time.
A bit of stitching.....Some reading, well maybe a lot of reading.....A little crocheting......


Enjoying my beautiful flowers from work, thank you to my boss and staff for hanging in and holding down the fort while I mend.....I am blessed!

I'll bet that rest is doing wonders for you...I am tickled with your stitchery and wonder too...is that Victoria a new one or one from way back?
