Good morning everyone.
Jim is home from the hospital. After some discussion with my sister and the hospital, it was decided that his rehabilitation could continue at home. After delivery of a wheelchair and a few other necessities, my sister bundled him into their van and took him home. She says the smile on his face is worth a million dollars. She had to have a few adjustments made to their home but nothing major. She says the greetings from the dogs, cats, horses and baby pig all made him grin from ear to ear. Starting the first of the week, he will get physical and speech therapy at home. He can maneuver around the house, in and out of bed and into the bathroom with minimal help. The kids are glad to have him home but he finds their high energy a bit much. I am sure he will adjust.
I have a lousy, stinking miserable cold that is not getting any better. As a matter of fact, it seems to be getting worse. When I cough, it seems to start in my toes. While we were visiting the grandsons, they had eye infections. Well, DH caught the infection and this morning I woke up with the infection. DH gave me the cold too. Needless to say, I am cranky, cranky, cranky and DH is not my favorite person. I will be off to the doctor's on Monday.
I had a lovely dinner and visit with Dani last Thursday. Dani has continued her enabling ways. She is doing a Christmas ornament exchange over at her Needle and Thread Board (link on her blog). She asked if I would like to join. I had to decline since all my supplies are packed in boxes ready for the trip to Arizona. Well, at dinner, she presented me with pattern, thread and fabric to do an ornament. What a girl!!! Thanks Dani. I will get stitching on it right away.
Dani and I went to see "Elizabeth - The Golden Age". It was excellent - visually stunning and the costumes were spectacular. Sometimes, the acting was a little over the top, but, all in all, a movie I would highly recommend.
I have been slowly working on a gift and also on my Book of Stitches. Progress however has been very slow due to my not feeling well. Hopefully, I will have something to show you soon.
