sunday musings

Greetings from sunny Florida where yours truly is recuperating at home following surgery.

These days I spend most of my waking hours on the couch, either reading, sleeping or watching TV. The latter usually only at night.

Yesterday I had a visit from my beading buddy Keli who brought me the latest issue of Bead Style magazine.

She's moving away soon and I'm going to miss her like crazy. Keli's the one who helped me "get serious" about beading.

Speaking of which, I was able to do a bit of work on a rosary while I was in the hospital, but I haven't been able to do anything since I got home. I can't seem to sit for any length of time in any kind of regular chair because it hurts. Darn!

Tomorrow I'm going to dispatch the spouse to Wal-Mart in search of a TV tray with short feet or some kind of breakfast tray I can rest over my tummy. I gotta be able to bead over the next couple weeks or yours truly will go stark raving bonkers! Meanwhile, I've been drooling over all the projects in the Bead Style magazine and dreaming of all the projects I want to make once I get well.

A hearty thank-you and shout out to all the great doctors, nurses and support staff at Baptist Hospital downtown, especially Shirley, Angela, Elaine, Elsa, Imelda, Kristin, Marisha, Marlene, Angel, Mary and, of course, Baby Jane. You all are the best nurses ever and I thank each and every one of your for the special brand of TLC you provided me.

thanks to *M* and *S* for helping me post this.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and giveaway! I'm so glad you're at home now and resting up! Surgery is no fun! Sending you get well wishes!!!

  2. Thanks, Coralie.
    My hubby got me a little tray table and I started working on a rosary. Unfortunately, I tire quickly these days but at least I know I can bead now so that's brought some sunshine to my recovery.

  3. So glad you are home and on the mend. Good to *see* you.


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment!
