My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:2-4

Cats and Dog
Hi friends! The last person to send me pink fabric for the Epic Pink Charm Quilt was our friend Noni. I made her up this thank you gift a while ago, but it takes a while to get all the way to Australia!!
Yes, a bookmark featuring her two cats, Oscar and Felix.
Also featuring Mitzi the King Charles Cavalier .
Last week I did a
dumb thing. I was not thinking. I was making dumplings for dinner. A
recipe I learned from my mother-in-law. I wasn't paying attention and
the butter in the pan burned, way past just browning. I removed the pan
and thought now what? I need this pan to burn a new stick of butter. I
will just add a little water to cool it down. WRONG. BAD. I learned in
grade school not to add water to a grease fire! It splattered on both
my hands and one wrist. It burned, scorched, seared, whatever you want
to call it for hours. Oh the pain! Wow! I never knew pain in that way.
It never blistered, just left dark brown splattered burns. The skin is now beginning to peel on my wrist. Not pretty at all.
Precious pansies that sprung up along the driveway.
Take a look at our apple tree now! We finally have tiny apples. :)
I discovered a robin's nest top the post at the back of the trunk. It is at the very top of the tree.
I am still going to the physical therapist twice weekly. She found my "hot spot". Oh man. Pain. She said if she could lift my left butt muscle, the tight band(not sure what she was talking about I was dying in pain) is way deep under there. Let me tell you deep massage there is not feeling great. At all. I shall persevere! Still doing the home exercise program. Doing well, I just have to use percocet after my latest visits with her!
