    The closest thing we got to autumn is the heat leaving town and cooler temps. Which has just slightly begun to happen. Happy
autumn!

    Yes, autumn is certainly here. In west central NH, the colors have pretty much faded; the leaves are falling quickly, especially with the rainy weather; occasionally we've had the cool, crisp day.

An early start to the weekend!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Yesterday was hubby's birthday and I had to work which wasn't all bad since there were a couple of technical issues and it is good to be needed at work during our uncertain times.

So today I'm leaving work half a day since the sun is shining and hubby is still home. We are going to relax on the back porch this afternoon and cook some steaks. I hope you all enjoy your day and weekend ahead.

I will leave you with this quote:
"Somewhere ages and ages hence, two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by…and that has made all the difference” – Robert Frost

Blanket Blog w/pictures

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

So here are my lastest creations. This firstone I made for a co-workers son who loves Thomas the train. She showed me a picture of him with the blanket and said he would have it for life and pass it down to his kids. That made me feel very good.



This one I made for a friend that I went to kindergarten with. Many, many years ago...
My silly granddaughter is helping me hold it:

.

And this one all the girls at work loved (one of them asked me to make it for her) and I wish I could find the material again because it is so soft and really pops! this picture is dull though and doesn't really show how bright the colors are.

    OMG! I love them. If you ever go into business selling them I'd like the butterfly blanket - two of them please.

You are super talented. My Grandma used to make them and I regret not paying attention when she was trying to teach me the craft.

Broken record

Sunday, August 26, 2012

So in January I had surgery on my right foot for two ailments. In Febuary my back flared and my sciatica hurt everyday until surgery for a herniated disc in July. Now my left foot has the same plantar fasciitis that my right foot had. So far one cortisone injection and no relief. At this point I would prefer to just get it fixed so I don't screw up my back again with my limping.

Tomorrow I see the foot doctor again and last week when I saw my back surgeon he said he would write a note to the foot doctor. Let's hope he will just fix it and not make me go through 5 months of physical therapy like I did with the right foot.

I do start physical therapy for the back tomorrow and I'm at least getting exercise in with my pool workouts. I have very consistent with those and my foot is fine in the water. I will get healthy again!

    I, too, have bouts of sciatica pain. Now I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both hips & lower back. Dr. & insurance co. are trying to set me up with PT. Hope it helps.

Feel better soon.

Thank you for my "pizza goodie". I love it too.

    On Dr. Oz yesterday he was explaining all the reasons why flip flops are bad for your feet and one of them was plantar faciitis because there is no arch support on a flip flop or I should say most of them. I love his demonstrations and this one made a lot of sense. Good thing I wear one with arch support cause I live in these in the summer so much so that I have tan lines on my feet. My granddaughters were watching and ran to get their flip flops to check. One had arch support and the other didn't. It was so funny cause the one with the arch support sighed a huge sigh of relief.

Sciatica I have and it can be debilitating at times. I hope you feel better real soon.

    So hope you get better real soon. I had plantar fasciitis in the mid 90's and know how debilitating it is. It came back and I have it in my left foot right now. Trying to rest it by using the x-bike for heavy workouts. It worked like a charm today. Swimming would be very good for it too. emoticon

    Sure hope the doc will fix your foot and not have you go through months of PT again. So glad you're enjoying the pool! I'm still not back there, but hopefully soon! My docs & I are working toward it!
