I am not sure if I am crazy or the rest of the world is, but I'm sure can agree with me that we all have those moments of wonder!!
Some of you know that I had a pretty serious car accident almost 2 years ago and have had to have surgeries to fix lots of broken bones in my right hand and foot.  I have had more than a couple on my hand and the foot just gives me fits all the time........so here it goes.  I have this bump on my foot that is getting larger and really hurts when I am on my feet for long periods of time, so I give in and call the doctor to, of course, be told to come in........the nurse tells me that if the screws are coming out they will have to remove them and it may be able to be done in the clinic with a local and of course cutting and removing.  WELL, I have a minor panic attack, get all worked up about how it will hurt again, I won't be able to get around real easily and blah, blah, blah for 2 days.  I went in to the doctor, they X-ray it and he asks where it hurts so I show him and he tells me that one of the screws is right below that and all the screws are looking good and the bones are healed well.  I know, you are thinking what is the pain and bump??????????  Well, calcium and bone growth, so he called it a bunionette, to give it a name.  So my dear spouse says to me, " so honey how does it feel to have a panic attack over a bunionette that cost $200.00?"  Well, when you put it that way, I think I must be crazy!!!  It was a blessing to not have any horrible trouble, but to have bone causing such a pain, heavens.  The doctor gave me the song and dance about not being on my feet for long periods of time, pay attention to the type of shoes, and use protection on that area and if it continues to bother me they can go in and grind some of that down. Thanks ladies for letting me tell you my CRAZY story, but thought you could all use a little chuckle!!

Been a While!

Ladies, I must say it has been a while since I have been in communication......for that I am sorry!!  I took a so-called "part-time" job in town at a little coffee shop and thought that it would help with a little extra money.  I have found myself much busier than I was hoping for.  I have not had much of a chance to be in the quilting/sewing room at all.  I have been doing a lot of cooking.
Of course, we finished calving about a week ago and now I have been helping The Spouse breed heifers that just finished calving....it is a continuous circle and I am feeling a bit dizzy.  Life seems to be rushing right on past and I am doing my best to stay on the carnival ride without falling off!!  Hope Spring is giving all of you a wonder picture of what beauty is heading our way.  Until I have more to send or update on --- Blessings to all!!

She is Amazing!!!  Being a Grandma is one of the best things ever!!
