19 years and counting...

Yesterday was our 19th wedding anniversary. I finally got out of the house for a little while. We went out for a steak dinner. We discussed the past and the future, our hopes and dreams and our up's and downs. My husband truly is an amazing man. He is my rock, my strength, my life and my love. I can honestly say, I can not imagine my life without him, nor would I ever want too!!! I would like to take a moment to say..."My love, I have always and will always love you.
Happy Anniversary Sweetheart".

I'm so very sorry for not posting like I should. It's getting easier to move around but it seems more painful since the surgery. It seems that when I fell I shattered part of my knee joint. The joint is very unstable. It now wants to buckle on me more often than it did before. Maybe with some physical therapy it will improve. OK... enough of this...

The Boy is doing well. His boken hand is healing nicely. On his next doc visit they will remove his cast, allow him to CAREFULLY wash his hands (thank goodness), x-ray and re-cast his hand. For years I struggled with him to get him to wash his hands...finally he is looking forward to doing so. Isn't it funny how things change??!!

Now on to knitting...I have completed the back and both sleeves of my blue sweater. Last night I started on a front pannel. The front usually doesn't take too long to complete. I would like to have it finished in the next couple of weeks.

I have also started a sweater on the USM. It's a sweatshirt style with a hood. The kids around here call them "hoodies". It's for "the boy" for the holidays. I am also planning a couple of other sweaters that can be mostly done on the machine.

And finally before I go, I would like to say Thank You to everyone for their "good vibes" and well wishes. Your thought and prayers mean so very much. Thanks again.

Still hanging in there...

Hi folks,

I just wanted to drop a line and let everyone know I'm still alive. I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee Monday. All went well. The doc removed two large pieces of cartilage and bone fragments. I go back to see him next week and will find out the details then. I have finally gotten to where I can get around with one crutch instead of two. And I need a little help getting in and out of the shower but, I think things are going well. My knee is SWOLLEN and very TENDER but I guess it's to be expected. I am getting some knitting done anyway. The back and one sleeve of my sweater (just like mom's sweater but blue) is done. Today the kids moved my knitting machine into the dining room so I can start some holiday projects. (I can't get up the stairs to my craft room yet) So with any luck I will have holiday projects to talk about.

This not having a camera sucks. Maybe if I'm a good kid Santa will bring me one. I did find a few photos in my PC that I can share with you. I must have downloaded them and forgot about them.

I didn't get a chance to distribute the hats before my surgery like I wanted. As soon as I am cleared to drive I will be passing them out. I am hoping I can borrow a camera.

I'll talk to you soon.

Hat drive up-date...

Sorry for not posting in a while, things have been a little busy around here. I have been working on a lot of hats lately...The deadline for the hat drive is approching very quickly. I have been making and sewing up hats like a mad woman. Hubby has taken to calling me "the hat lady".

Last week "the boy" broke his hand. Tomorrow he goes to see an orthopedic doc to have his bone re-set and a cast put on. He has a boxer fracture in the support bone (in the palm of his hand) for his pinky finger.

I was finally approved for arthroscopic surgery on my knee. I will be going in on the 15th. It's one of those out patient surgery's so I won't have to stay in the hospital. :)

As you can see, it hasn't been too dull in my little part of the world. I finally finished hubby's heather blue sweater. I would take a picture but I don't have a camera anymore. I had borrowed it from my brother and he needed it back. If I can borrow it back from him I'll take pictures of my latest finished objects and some pictures of the great hats that have been collected.

Talk to ya soon.
