Today is my birthday and I have been sitting on the sofa for about an hour thinking of the last year and what a lucky person I am. In a very big way the year was bad, we suddenly lost my stepdad in February, just a few short weeks after he and my Mom retired from work. He was such a good man and so good to my mother. I miss him. Then there has been the whole knee replacement. I needed it badly and knew it would be complicated, but it made for a long summer and thankfully I am close to finishing up the whole physical therapy and regular doctor appointments and hospital stays.
I hasn't all been bad though. Far from it. I have the best husband in the world. He has supported me and put up with everything without ever complaining or making me feel like a burden. I have my daughter who is so special to me. I love them more than anything.
Last winter I was out to lunch with my good friend, my best yarn buddy, and she says to me 'You should go check out Attic24, there is a bag on there that looks just like something you would like."
Crochet With Raymond too, Alice is a very talented lady. These two women really inspire me with all kinds of ideas.
We had a very busy weekend here. On Saturday my best friend and I took our kids to the park to play and feed the ducks, only to find that we are no longer allowed to feed them. The kids had fun chasing them around the park anyway.
