|Lily and Tiny passing along some barnyard gossip.|
January is rolling along and I haven't posted anything in almost two weeks... I just can't seem to get caught up! Christmas and New Year came and went rather quickly for me this year... actually everything has been a blur to me lately. Once again, thanks so much for your prayers and well-wishes.... Hubby is doing very well since his surgery. He is still having some discomfort from the incision but hardly any pain in his leg or back at all now.
Hubby and I had been talking for some time about exercising more and getting back into shape, and since we live close to several state parks and trails we even talked about doing some fun things like hiking or riding bicycles.
I was very excited about this back in the fall and had big plans to surprise Hubby with two new bikes for Christmas, but the surprise was on me when we found out in early December that he would need surgery to repair the disc in his back.
By then it was too late to send the bikes back, so I had to go ahead and tell Hubby that there would be no presents under the tree other than my
So, our shiny new Christmas presents are in the spare bedroom on their shiny new bike rack where they will have to stay until Hubby gets the O.K. from the doctor to be able to start riding.... we are walking a little bit each day and hopefully he will get the go-ahead soon. I used to love to ride bikes but I haven't been on one in a long time and I'm a little scared- I have a feeling my leg muscles are in pretty sad shape right now.
However, Lily has already been enjoying her Christmas present-
she now has something to ride in right along with us when we start biking...
her very own "car"!
Actually it's a bike trailer for pets that doubles as a stroller -
Here she is checking it our for the first time....
(This is with the stroller wheel on the front.)
I think she liked it...
In fact, we brought her "car" back inside the house and a short time later I couldn't find Lily...
I looked everywhere and here's where I finally found her-
Sitting in her new ride.
And she wouldn't come out...
not even for a treat.
Do you think she's trying to tell me something?
Even though the chores around here have been keeping me busy,
I've found time to get some sewing done.....
it's been nice working at my machine while Hubby naps in his chair in the living room.
I'll be showing you in an upcoming post what I've been working on but right now
I wanted to share some pictures of the fabric I bought a few weeks ago.
This was my first online fabric purchase- I was very unsure about buying fabric sight-unseen because I like to put my hands on it (I know that sounds nutty...) but once it arrived I was very pleased, especially since I live a pretty good distance away from any place that sells fabric. Now I'm excited about the idea of being able to pick out fabric from home and have it delivered to my door, and I've been spending most of my computer time adding more fabric and notions to my online "wish list".
I'm not really a cat person, but when I saw this fabric called "Parlor Pets" I thought it was too cute not to buy to make an apron or something for a cat lover...
I just love the honeybees in this next fabric- see if you can spot them.
And of course I had to find something chickie".... *grin*
Well, I'm off to run errands today instead of Friday- snow is in the forecast for tonight and even though I don't think it will do anything, I want to be the first one in the grocery store.
Happy Thursday, everyone!
