A Quick Post

I'm I'm free! Just a very quick post to let everyone know that I got the big purple cast off today. I now am wearing a post op. boot. I can take it off to bathe and sleep. The break is healing nicely. I go back to the orthopaedic surgeon in a month. That just goes to show that eating calcium rich food and drinking milk ...along with a good calcium supplement does help. The surgeon was impressed that it was healing so quickly. I still am hobbling around but this boot is a lot more comfortable than the "purple thang" that I was!

I will leave you with  a couple  pics of my little Jak. I did not keep him today and sure missed him. I did enjoy my nap though. I put on some laundry and passed out. He will be here in the morning very early.

Jak never lets you get a natural picture of him. He always makes a face or yells. That's just Jak!

Have a great day tomorrow! Many Blessing, Karen

A Little Bit of Nothing

As I have read the blogs I follow I see that everyone had a great Christmas. Also looks like we are all entering the New Year with very positive goals. That is such a good feeling! It has given me much inspiration! I hope we all continue to be so positive!

As some of you know I haven't been doing much at all. I have had a broken foot since before Thanksgiving. I have been in a cast for four weeks. I will be going to the orthopaedic surgeon Wednesday morning. Please keep your fingers and toes crossed that I get this big purple cast off my foot. It is sooooooo limiting. It is hard getting down stairs to sew or do laundry.But I am still able to keep up with my husband, 3 dachshunds and my 15 month old grandson. I did have two weeks that I didn't keep Jak. Ashleigh had her semester break. Today we started back to our almost regular routine. Now Jak gets here a little earlier...5:45 am. This morning he wanted in his bed as soon as he got here. He fell right to sleep. So not that much has changed except Jak's arrival time in the mornings.

I have never done needle punch. I bought a hoop a couple of months ago and a needle punch kit. I think I will start that in the next day or two. If I can figure out how to do it! I will be out of town for a couple of days. So I need something to stitch on in the car and the motel. While hubby is taking care of business I hope to visit with a friend and go to a fabric store. I am sure I will need a hand project to work on the rest of the time. I usually don't sleep well in motels. I hear every noise and wake up. So I can stitch when I wake up. Nothing more boring than being in a motel without a project or a good book.

I will leave you with a picture or two of Jak. He is so tall he can reach on top of the dining table and the kitchen counters. Over Christmas he was sneaking cookies out of the cookie tray. Today he took Paw Paw's last chocolate graham off the counter. I took a picture of him with the chocolate on his little face. He has never been allowed many sweets. I guess now we will have to keep them up off the table and counter since he has discovered them.

You can click on the pics to enlarge them if you want a closer look!

I am looking for still photos of Christmas. I think everyone was using a video camera and we ended up with no stills. Maybe I will run across some stills. If I do I will post some of those later.

Have a good week eveyone. Many blessings to you all, Karen

Ps. Fern this post was for you!!!! Hugs!
