Hello, it's been awhile! I am home...recovering from my husband's surgery. What, you say? Yes, and I am eating for two...No, I am not pregnant, no I did not just have surgery. I don't know why, but having my husband undergo a major surgery has me in recovery as he is recovering. It feels so strange to have him in his weakened state, sleeping a lot and unable to do all the things he normally does to serve our family! It is stressful being a full time caretaker, taking on the role as the "man of the house," like taking out the trash, bringing in the newspaper and doggy poop duty. (I am putting that little task off for now...hoping the extra fertilizer will only green up our lawn quicker and maybe a deterrent ...kinda like land mines for anyone who dare trespass our yard at night!) I am definitely eating enough for both of us. He doesn't have much of an appetite, but I am making up for it with mine. We work well together like that! Well, we are a team...and when one is down, it does affect the other. I know God is teaching me through this and I am sometimes slow to learn but I am willing to wait right here and hopefully serve, minister to and encourage my husband has he works to get well. Lots of trips to Physical Therapy with me behind the wheel.
My friends urged me to take it slow as well, so to that end, I discovered a great used book store and found two books this morning that I hope to be able to concentrate enough to delve into. I took a few pictures of some completed stamped cards this afternoon before the wind kicked up again so I can get back to blogging a bit...yippee:!!
So here is a card I stamped awhile ago using my all time favorite Flourishes stamps. The company just sold their business and I am missing the blog and challenges there...but the illustrator for them rebooted it under a new name and I am beyond excited about that!!
So, thanks for popping in to check on me...I will be staying close to home for the next couple of weeks, so hope to share a few more cards soon. Blessings on your day!
