A Quick Catch Up

Everything went well with DH and surgery. He was home by mid afternoon. Sore and hurting but he was home and in his own chair with his own remote control! lol. We both want to thank everyone who sent well wishes to him! It meant alot. I took my stitching to keep me busy while he was in surgery and I got a good bit accomplished on the border. I even had several doctors and nurses comment on it.

The day after his surgery, I began to feel really bad with the room spinning ALOT, feeling weak and short of breath so I dragged myself into the doctor with what I thought was a bad case of allergies only to find out I had pneumonia. No wonder I felt so rotten but where the heck did I get that stuff in the summertime? Not even any stitching was done because I was either to dizzy, too weak or just sound asleep.

I began to feel better in time to make DH his favorite birthday cake. German Chocolate. I am lazy with the cake and just use a mix but it's that rich German Chocolate frosting that really makes it so delicious! That always gets my extra attention as I stand over the stove making enough frosting for 2 cakes. One for home and one for him to take to work and share.

I had some gift certificates waiting to be used so I placed an order. I got Melicent Turner by LHN, Emma Mills by The Scarlett House and Beauty and Grace by Tree of Life Sampling. A new order is always fun especially when you don't have to pay for it! lol.

Now it's time to announce the winner of the giveaway for the chart Liberty by Hands to Work. Sound the horns!!! horns, please)....................Terri! I wish I had more than one to giveaway! Thank you all for entering and keep checking back because there may be another giveaway soon!
