Almost Christmas

I cannot believe that it’s almost Christmas and I have not posted here since July.  To say things have been interesting in my life is an understatement.  We visited my son in August.  Three days after we arrived I proceeded to fall on the wet kitchen floor and broke my shoulder.  OUCH!!!  I wound up being stuck in Florida for five weeks.  We tried to come home after three, but the pain was too much so we headed over to our friends home near Orlando.  We spent the rest of the time there.  I was truly blessed I didn’t need surgery.  It was quite a significant fracture, but non displaced.

When we got back to North Carolina, I began six weeks of physical therapy.  Again OUCH!!!  But no pain no gain right?  I have regained all of my range of motion, but am still exercising to gain strength.

Needless to say this has put me wayyyyyy behind for the holidays.  So my grand-kids are getting gift cards this year.  I am still hoping to get a few little things made.  We are not decorating this year as we will not be entertaining.  So I decided to decorate my blog.  This is our tree from last year.  As you can see it’s decorated with cows.  I know, my kids think I am crazy too!  🙂

One of the best things about my injury is that I have been reading like crazy.  It was weeks before I could even type on the computer and I still have not done any sewing, and reading helped fill my days and nights.  I reactivated my Goodreads account and have been trying to update it.  One of my favorite authors is James Patterson of the Alex Cross fame.  I think I have read every book he has written, or they are on my list of books to read,  I have finally discovered electronic readers.  Wow!  I can make the text large enough for me to read it.  Seems the older I get the bigger the print needs to be.  LOL
