During the weekend and after taking time out for a gallbladder attack or two, I was able to accomplish a bit. After some weeding and planting a few new things for the garden that I had promised my Dad I would create for the two of us, I found a wonderful stepping stone to add my own personalization to. This is the picture in the catalog but mine will read "In Loving Memory of" along with my Dad's name. I know it will find a happy home in "Our Garden". A lot of what is left to be done will not be accomplished until this Fall and next Spring after my surgery and I get the OK to start doing heavy work again.
I was able to finally pick up my cross stitch again. Not for long periods but it felt good to do a few stitches. I worked on My Home is Built in Glory and would like to have it finished sometime in September if all the busy-ness allows. I will post a picture when I get a little more done.
As for me, I have good days when the tears stay at bay and other days when I still cry from the time I get up until the time I go to bed. I promised my Dad I would be strong and I am trying. I really am.
My dear husband is taking a week off to spend with me. We have no special plans except for doing little things around the house and just being lazy. We do have our 33rd anniversary coming up this weekend.
