Why does my luck have to lean to the dark side? I mean, why can't I win the lottery? Why instead do I have to be one of the 5% of people who need to have ANOTHER surgery on their spine? Sigh . . . I am jumping ahead of myself. They haven't actually said I need a second surgery. YET. But the same discs they removed parts of in September are bulging again and causing some weakness in my left foot. Oy. What luck, huh? So put all your good jou-jou together and send it my way because I seriously have no patience for this.
Meanwhile, I'm in Baltimore visiting my parents and we had a blizzard yesterday. Close to 2 feet of snow!
It really is beautiful but there is a lot to clean up today and I am hobbling around and not much help.
Before I made the drive down here I spent a few days having my niece and nephew visit from Oregon. The kids have never been to NYC before and we had a great time seeing the Statue of Liberty and visiting the REAL Santa at Macy's. Their favorite part?
Riding the subway. :)
I've also been making a few things but many are gifts and swaps so I can't share them yet. Except for these needle books:
Aren't they cute? The fabric is vintage scraps I found at the flea market in Connecticut in the fall. Once the holidays are over and I'm past whatever medical crap is coming my way I'll list them, plus my extensive vintage apron collection, in the shop.
I hope to be back one more time before Christmas with some photos but just in case let me wish you the merriest, happiest day of the year.
Peace on Earth.
