It was a gorgeous day today–the sun broke through about mid-day and melted all of the ice and snow off the mountain across the way. The trees in the valley are all those mellow colors of Fall and just lovely. I know they’ll be bare as can be in another couple of weeks, but I love watching them while they’re colorful like this. I love the Liquid Amber trees for this very reason.
American Sweetgum is another name for this gorgeous tree.
The last storm took all but a few leaves from our trees in the front yard. I expect the remaining ones will drop off as soon as the first real snowfall hits.
I’ve completed the quilting on the grandson’s quilt and am working on the pillowcases. Once those are done, I’ll work on binding the quilt and affixing the label. It’s going to be really nice to present this to him. Looking forward to seeing the smile on his face!
That’s all for now except to say that every day my range of motion and pain continue to improve. I had my reassessment examination today and at almost every level, I have doubled the range of motion. Outstanding. The therapist said I still had some weakness that could be worked on, but she would leave the decision for further physical therapy up to the Orthopedic surgeon. I see him on Monday.
Have a very happy and peaceful Thanksgiving. Remember our armed service personnel in your prayers of gratitude, and if you have room at your table contact the USO and invite a solder to your home for Thanksgiving. We’ve done this in the past and it’s been a very worthwhile experience.
Be safe in your travels, be well, and please be happy and grateful. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Blessings to you and yours.
