The air is crisp and clean and many of the leaves have taken on pretty burgundy, orange, and yellow tones. No, not in my home state of Hawaii but here in North Carolina!
Yes my friends, the hubby and I arrived yesterday in the beautiful state of North Carolina where he will be undergoing extracranial/intracranial bypass surgery. Unfortunately, he is not a stranger to these kinds of surgeries. This particular surgery is terribly scary but I know that we will get through it. We always have. I struggled with the decision about whether to bring this to my blog but I thought that it would help to explain why I haven't been a very attentive blogger over the past several months. My heart and mind have been preoccupied with life matters.
Unfortunately, I will not be seeing much of this beautiful state as the next couple of weeks will be spent mostly in hospital and hotel rooms. Between initial consultations, preop testing, and the actual surgery itself, there will be little time for sightseeing. I will be bringing my camera along for the ride anyway. Shots of pretty trees in parking lots...
a quick trip to the mall...
where they're already decorating for Christmas...
and as of Friday, delicious hospital food to whet your appetite, followed by a shot or two of the inside of hospital rooms. The possibilities are endless. *smirk*
And because this is a blog about making stuff, here is a penny posie flower cluster made from wool felt that I put together before I left Hawaii. I'm still debating on whether or not to permanently applique this to my jeans pocket because I'm wondering how well it will hold up to multiple washings.
Thank you everyone for your well wishes about my fractured pinky. Fortunately, it is on my non-dominant hand and mostly hurts when I hit it against something (like my computer keypad). It is feeling better and better with each passing day and is pretty minor in the scheme of things, don'tyathink???
Take care everyone. Remember to enjoy the little things in life and to savor the time spent with family and friends. Life is fragile and things can change in an instant.
