This is a quick post to let you know I am still alive ! :)
It has been a rough summer, with more hospital time and recovery. I had been on such a heavy dose of anti-inflammitory's for my inflammatory disease, that it finally wrecked havoc on my stomach and intestines and left bleeding holes. Sometimes the cure might be worse than the disease, lol ! :) That is really taking time to heal. Now however, being off of them, I am in a lot more pain and my body doesn't want to move. Everything feels like it weighs 2000 pds and it is an effort. The shakes have also become more frequent, which can be not only embarrassing, but I drop things. I hope I don't sound like I am whining, I would HATE that ! Just reporting the facts :) I cant wait to get back to the swing of things and visit all of my bloggy friends. I have Missed you !!!
I have had swaps come and go, and need to share the gorgeous sweetness my partners sent me. It really brightened my summer let me tell you ! I will be back on Saturday with pictures and hopefully to visit each of you :) ( Those of you waiting on an email from me, it is forthcoming today :) )
I will leave you with a pretty dish my sweet Mom found. Yummy goodness !!! :) Not sure if I will keep this or not. As I seem to get more ill as time passes, I feel the need to downsize all of my collections. My "stuff" seems to require more maintenance than I am up to these days. Dusting etc. Are any of you downsizing your nests ? I have even been thinking of moving into a smaller house. Hubby works so much overtime to make ends meet and our house seems like a lot to take care of for both of us. Just thinking though :)Anyhoo. I hope you have been getting some use out of the clip art. I would love to see some of the things you are making, it does my heart good :) Those are Pre-scheduled ( I have had a few emails asking about that ) till February 2011 ! So, if I am not home, you will get your free pictures from me each Monday for the next 6 months :) They are my way of giving back some of the love that all of you sweet ladies have given me over the last few years. :)
Thank you as always for being YOU. Each of you touch my heart , you just cant know. My "Virtual" world has become my only world this last few years, being so home bound and you are each a part of my family. I cherish you !! :)
