Healing Hand Update.

Well, it has been an interesting week for sure.  Doing things with my left hand only...sometimes with funny results and other times with frustration.  I have a new appreciation for people who only have one hand to work with all the time.  My son left on Monday morning for a few days and it has been challenging to say the least.  I will be happy when he returns!

One of my daughters picked me up yesterday, as I am still not driving, and we went to watch my little 5-month old granddaughter at her swimming class.  We surprised my other daughter with lunch and a great visit.  It was so much fun to watch Claire play, coo and not make strange with us.  Such blessings I am so grateful for.

I have done a little scrapbooking, however some of the movements are a bit painful and I am reminded quickly.  So, I have watched a lot of movies on Netflix, TV programs and finished a book, "The Help".   I am now working on some Christmas gifts.  I finished the 400 cards I was making the day before the surgery.

Healing Hand

After surgery yesterday, my hand will be better than new when all healed.  Can't wait!
Also, praising God for good test results today.  Thank you.
Looking forward to being able to create some more.  400 cards done before surgery, plus card workshop for 12 x 12.  I have been busy, so glad to be resting for awhile.

Card Workshop

It was a wonderful afternoon and all ten spots were filled to make Christmas cards. Everyone had fun and tuned into their creative side to make the cards their own.  I was happy to assist wherever needed and enjoyed the company of all who attended.  Thank you.
