Bet ya been wondering if I dropped off the face of the earth, huh? Nope, just been a bit hampered since that fall I took on the 25th of May. It seems I created some internal bleeding in my titanium knee that took a week to decide to flow in little tracks down the leg (inside and outer side) to pool in my foot making it swell and turn all pretty and psychedelic in colors. Of course, this would happen on a Friday when my doctor's office was closed and I did not want to go to an Emergency Room. After all, it did not hurt, it was just that my ankle looked ready to burst...so....off the foot and propped up for most of the weekend. Take a look!
You really cannot see the little trails of blue bruises all the way down the leg, but it was really pretty and still is, but in the darkening and ugly shades of yellow and green now....LOL! Anyhow, that is the Friday my friend Kaye was coming from west Texas to spend the night. We had not seen each other in about 18 months and were really looking forward to a girls' catch up gab session. (Probably cleaning the house of dust bunnies, making a couple of chicken pot pies etc started the flow down my leg...LOL). Kaye arrived around 4:30 in the afternoon and we talked until after 10p.m. before going to bed. The "cats" were nice enough to share the bed with this stranger, but kept checking of us all during the night (especially the new little man)..LOL...they are definitely not used to anyone in the bed but them and me...ROFLMAO!!! Next morning we shared a great breakfast and a pot of coffee before she headed on to east Texas for a "family/cousin" reunion in Tyler. However, I did manage to capture a photo of her with my cell phone and I decided to put her in one of Miss Linda's gorgeous QPs made with one of the free kits by Kyra....doesn't she look great in it?
We FINALLY got about an inch of rain yesterday and boy are the plants and my grass happy for the drink. My hibiscus finally put out some more blooms (boy did it...3 of them in fact) and I just had to snap a photo of how large they were. I put a CD up next to it...the bloom is larger....look at this.....
Here's another freebie I created using Miriam's awesome wedding kit 2 that you can find on her blog if you would like it.
Well, enough rambling...lots more to say, but need to move and I know y'all are tired of reading by now. Chat more next time....have a terrific week of making lots and lots and lots of memories to share! Hugs, Mat
