So... first, I broke my arm...

Day after THANKSGIVING, I broke my arm.  I've been at my mom's for almost 6 weeks.  I just came home today.

I fell off of a curb, couldn't catch myself, and landed on my right side. It broke my upper arm -- the humerus -- about 2 inches below the shoulder joint.  It was a clean break, so didn't require surgery. 

It couldn't be cast, however, so I'm in a sling.

To the lovely ladies that won my birthday giveaway, I have not forgotten.  I WILL get them out by Saturday.

Hoping everyone has a lovely, brilliant, safe, and happy 2019!

Election Night!

I voted!  I was so lucky -- walked right into the polling place, voted, and walked out.  Less than 10 minutes from start to finish!

Tonight, I'll be watching the returns and stitching.

May be a long night... but it's sure to hold a few surprises.

Happy Stitching, Ya'll!

ALL SOULS DAY and a bittersweet farewell

I lit a candle and prayed my Rosary for you today.

Melba and me on my Wedding Day in 1990.
She always made me laugh -- often at the most inappropriate time.

We gently and lovingly lay her ashes beside those of her parents today.

When my mom was pregnant with me, Melba was just 2 1/2.  She patted mama's tummy and asked if she would take the baby out so could play with me.
We were playmates for 57 years.

Bittersweet... tears of sadness, joy, remembrance...

It hurts to say goodbye, so... fare thee well, Melba.  I'll see you again.

Just for you:
