Mid-week Catch Up

I cannot believe how beautiful the entire month of November has been here in Upstate, NY. Today was another gorgeous, sunny day with temperatures in the mid-50's. Many times, by this time of the year, we have snow in this area. We are all just lovin' these beautiful Indian Summer days. Knowing that they can't last forever, I have been trying to be outside as much as possible.

I went to the hospital to spend the lunch time with Bruce today. He is having a regular diet now, and although he can feed himself it is a little difficult with only one hand so, sometimes, it's nice to have a little help. It was nice to have that time to visit with him by myself. He's doing pretty well and I think it won't be long before he's off to a skilled nursing facility for his orthopaedic rehab. They can't start his spinal cord rehab until the orotho is done, so the sooner the better.

In between hospital visits and trying to get some exercise, I have been working on putting my craft room back together. I am so excited to finish it and post some pictures. Jim has done such a nice job of painting and refitting it, I am anxious to show it off.

He's also finished painting the downstairs bathroom and I'm trying to get that finished too. My main problem is window treatments. I just can't make up my mind. I'm thinking of Roman shades in the craft room, but haven't seen exactly what I want yet. I'm not one of those people who has a decorator's touch. I really agonize. Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

I know my postings have been sparse and a little boring lately, but I'm going to get better....sometime, I promise.

Hi Pam,

Oh, I'm so glad to hear that Bruce is getting better and better.

Our weather has been gorgeous for almost two weeks, low 70s and lots of sunshine, but the last two days have been damp and foggy and cool. However, by the weekend the sunshine will be back. Just in time for my favorite visitors, arriving next Monday for a week.

I know your craft room will look nice when you're done. Ready for Thanksgiving?

Have a great rest of the week.

Bruce is like Superman! To make it this far in such a short time, go Bruce!

Target has some very cute Roman shades for around $15. I almost bought them for my house, but there are too many windows and no guarantees our next house will have the same size windows.
