Autumn has most certainly arrived here in West Michigan and it brings with it changing leaves, changing skies, and Home Coming!
Yes, I know.. maybe I need to get Heidi fitted with sackcloth and ashes. I wish I had the foresight to have snapped a photo of the look on her dad’s face when he saw Heidi’s date get out of the car, priceless I am telling you!! So, later that evening when she and Jordan were over laughing and carrying on and Holly Hop came up (Holly Hop is when the girls and the boys – aka Sadie Hawkins) and the girls say they are going to ask “gangster boys”. Give me strength. That is all I am saying!!
I lost the heat wars last week as well. With the temperature inside registering in the 40’s I caved and turned on the heat!! It was on and off just as quickly – we have warmed up this week nicely! But, we have had several hard frosts overnight that have covered the ground with an icing of white!
For the enquiring mind, I did have surgery on Monday. And, I am on the road to recovery. It is a slow and somewhat rocky road. A big bump occured yesterday when I had to remove my pain pump. As long as I don’t move my arm, I am not in too much pain. And the medication is most certainly befuddling my brain. I did give it the college try and went sans pain meds until about 2PM today when I had to throw in the towel before I threw up! Yeah, there is a lovely picture, eh? Anyways, I am back to my medicated haze.
I have attempted a bit of knitting.. and can manage a row or two before utter exhaustion sets in. Spinning is not even on the horizon yet.
I am off to seek out sleep in the middle of the day. Color my world quiet!
