Company has gone home, house is back to semi-quiet status, and I’m down for the count. I’ve slept most of today, off and on through last night, and had gone to bed early yesterday. I did manage to sleep in the bed for about 4 hrs., but woke to pain in my back (laughing here at having to differentiate between the shoulder pain that I’d been dealing with versus the new pain in my back from my ‘love tap’ from my husband’s truck.) Ah me… at least I’m back to being able to laugh at life and that’s a very good sign!

I feel like I’m in an adjustment period, so bear with me until I get myself back to normal again.

Update on the sweatshirt jacket — back is finished and front is awaiting pockets (pinned on but not sewn yet). It’s a long sweatshirt and part of me wants to cut about 4″ off the bottom and hem it. I may do that yet. I usually remove all ribbing from the cuffs and bottom of the sweatshirt, but didn’t do it this time. I think removing the extra fabric improves the look of the garment.

View from my window — a poor lonely dove sitting on the warm blocks of our wall, looking out at the valley below. He/she appears to be waiting for something — my feelings exactly — waiting for the pain to quit and my attitude adjustment to be complete.

Be safe, be well (PLEASE) and be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Take time for yourself when needed. You are important, and your presence here in this life is required.

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
