Here I Go!


Well, I guess I am as ready as I can be for my surgery tomorrow morning. My house is spic and span, the refrigerator full, laundry folded and put away, the pets bathed and groomed. Never mind I should be home by 10 in the morning, I like to be prepared!


Already I miss the goings on in our community. If you miss just one day here, you miss a whole lot of cuteness! I will have lots to catch up on by next week. I already can't wait.


I have spent this past week preparing projects to motivate me to wellness.  No gold star needed here, a craft desk filled with characters to paint is just the incentive I need to bend that knee, climb those stairs, paint that smile.


May I tell you this surgery is such a small thing, but my worry about the silliest of things brings me near to tears. Will I have to ask my husband to help me dress and tie my shoes? Of course he gladly would, but it is hard for me to ask.


And so I have distracted myself by making Laura's Teacup Couple. I fell madly for her adorable creation, found here. I don't think I have ever seen anything cuter!


I have had such fun with my State Fair theme, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. When I return it will be to Rodeo Days. Oh how I love a cute cowboy!


I guess that's it for now, 5am is nearly here. The roller coaster is nearing it's crest, there's no turning back. Did I ever tell you how flexible I am and that I can touch my toes and will surely be able to tie my shoes myself..... Here I go!

Tomorrow (Sunday) is the last day to enter ♥ my giveaway♥, if doing so would help cheer you up any. :) It's being offered over here: http://everyday-is-a-holiday.blogspot.com/2013/04/id-love-for-you-to-meet-our-feature.html

If that doesn't help brighten your weekend, I hope Ohio is at least sunny and springlike for you as you recover. :) At least you can craft even with a sore knee, right? :)

Best Wishes,

Val ♥

Love you so much, dear heart!! Hope everything went well and I'm sure you will be blessed by your hubby tying your shoes, just like the disciples were when Jesus washed their feet :)

Shirley Hatfield said...

Here I am late as usual. I just got back from a 4 day weekend trip. I got your comment on the road...I know just how painful these things can be. I had knee surgery...similar due to trying to lift a shovel load of rocks when our home and landscaping was new. I never knew there could be so much pain involved. All this years later my knee is still weak. I hope I don't have to have a replacement...never want to feel that pain again!!! Be brave my sweet friend...this too shall pass and many fun things are waiting on the other side. =D
