more 'round the farm pics may 09

The Hydrangeas are about to bloom!

Finally got a pic of Eve~ our wonderful white farm cat (indoor/outdoor).
She took on quite a few orphaned kittens and raised them as her own.
She is of course now spayed, she likes being free of responsibility now!

guess I didn't think there was anything that could keep me down so long!!

Had surgery on April 14th, but good news, no cancer!!

Then I guess I didn't have enough already, so I did it again on April 21.
WOW, THAT ONE GOT ME...I guess I thought I would be up and running again by now
but as the doc said " 3 months".
I am trying hard to get back to normal...but the doc knows best.

Got quite a few doll bodies sewn up for the hospital stay of a week, soI could turn and stuff them, and am busily making them into creatures. Thank God for things to do that we love to do.

It's been quiet, daily messages from Shanna and phone calls from hubby, dogs barking, and FOX NEWS, mixed with old reruns of Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Beverly Hillbillies fill my lonely and painful days.

Hubby has been wonderful, picking up jello, broth and things I can eat from the store.
Still can't really eat yet...guess that is all part of the recovery process, the parts that they don't warn you about.

Well nuff droning on...back to painting and keeping busy, 3 months is a longgggggggg time.

THANKS TO SHANNA FOR MY LITTLE RECOVERY GIFT!! I LOVE YOU BABY GIRL...thanks for thinking of me...it means the world.
