I really haven’t been myself lately. I haven’t been my usual happy self at all, although spring is lightening everything up out there in the world around me.
But today, I finally began to feel a little better.
I left work briefly to get the giant bandage off my right index finger. The stitches will come out in another week but for now, I’m doing bending exercises for the finger unless I want it to “stick straight out for the rest of my life” as my surgeon so bluntly put it. He said I should do them five times. “A day?” I asked. “No,” he said, “an hour”.
Silly me thought I could type right away but when the finger doesn't bend correctly, well there’s no typing for that finger yet. My husband gave me a compliment which surprised me. He said that I could type better with nine fingers than most people could who use all ten.
That was nice of him.
When I came home from work today, I noticed that the house was cleaner. And that never fails to make me happy. The wood floors had even been swiffered. And while my tea was brewing, I took these photos you see here.
My two sons sent me a beautiful bouquet of tulips for Mother’s Day. And although they didn’t get here until Monday, it was really a nice surprise! I used SheIsPretty Stock textures for the top two and a Ghostbones texture for the yellow one below.
My husband and I sat outside on the porch while I had my tea and he told me about his dream to buy a very small RV with a Mercedes diesel engine. He wants to do this while he’s still alive and feeling ok, he said.
He has mentioned this before, but today he sounded very serious about it. I’d love it if he could have his wish. It would be so wonderful for him. Something new and fun. And I’ve always enjoyed camping in luxury.
I’m just glad I’m feeling better. It’s so good to get that damn bandage off!
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
