Still Taking It Easy

Hi there everyone. Well, as you can see, I am still taking it easy.....does not this picture below look like a place you would like to be.....forgetting all your worries, fears and woes.....I would love to float in some water in a warm place about now.
Another place to get lost in....some paradise far, far away!!!!!
Yep....we have yet another 3 days in September......this sure has been a tough month for me. I am glad to say I am feeling much, much better. Went to see Doctor Flanagan this last Thursday and she said things are healing well, but I still need to take it easy for another couple of weeks. Guess I never realized how much surgery can take out of us. And then, to have back to back surgeries, the colonoscopy on the 2nd and the hernia surgery on the 3rd. Oh my.....someone told me today at church, that was a lot of different things being pumped into my's no wonder it takes 6-8 weeks to recuperate and get the body back to normal.

Well, I can rest a little bit more I guess.....but I am getting antsy. I am just glad that I am not sick like I had been for the last 9 months....every month I was getting stomach pains, throwing up and diarrhea. The lady at church also said, it sounded like the intestine was strangulated by the hernia and it is a good thing it was caught in time. Yeah....pretty scary I guess.
We stopped at Spranger's Apple orchard today on the way home from church and I got some Mollies and Cortland apples. Both will be good for an apple pie or two. Maybe next week, we will stop for some more, and maybe get a pumpkin for a few pies......yum, does that not sound good???

I am thinking I will make some potato cheese soup tomorrow......sounds good, found a simple recipe for that on my go-to recipe place for yummy recipes.

Another thing I will be trying this week is: the shaving cream and ink technique to make backgrounds for my cards....sounds like a fun project.....maybe this is what I need to get me back into making cards again. My inspiration and motivation has been lacking for the last couple of months. Guess I need to get back on the wagon and start making a few cards for my Etsy store and for Hospice. Have not been to a Hospice meeting for over 3 months and the next meeting will be in I have a little bit of time to make a few cards for that.

Well time to close here and go make some cereal for myself....or something. You all take care and keep looking up! Cheers ~ Louise

Hi Louise,
I am so relieved that you are doing so good. I bet you are going to be glad to see this month be gone. You are doing so wonderful!! It does take so long to bounce back doesn't it. You were on my heart all last week, so I am so glad you posted.
I am amazed at all you have done so far. I hope you have a lovely week.

Hi there Kim....glad you stopped by. Yes....this month was a tuffy, that's for sure. Thanks on the lovely week....that would be nice.

So happy to hear that all your efforts and recent sufferings have at least relieved you of that pain - and your friend is right about all your bod has gone through recently with procedures and surgeries, so just listen to your own instincts and rest when you need to - you need to heal completely...Hugs and prayers continuing...Evie

Hi Evelyn....thanks for the comment. Sometimes listening is hard to do, cause I see so much that needs to be done...the mind is willing but the body is slow to react at this time.
