All is Well…

Everything is finally almost back to normal, I think… hopefully…
It has been a strange few weeks, I put my upper back out about two weeks ago and this moved up into my neck, I haven’t been able to drive or really turn my head at all BUT, now it’s almost better and I am so thankful for this! Did you know that when you yawn or swallow, your head tilts slightly to the back?? Well I know this… because I haven’t been able to tilt my head and now I can. My chiropractor, Wendy is amazing!! We also had a hard drive crash on one of our computers, the new one, the one with all the patterns and photos… (stressful stuff…) the back-up was almost complete when it happened but this can be sorted out too… Hooray!!
The best news of all is that Myrtle is looking so much better, she is sitting up and eating and drinking on her own. Millie is the ill chicken at the moment, but I can see she is going to pull through and I am so happy about this… such precious little creatures these chickens of ours. Thank you all so much for your thoughts about our chickens, we really appreciate your kindness:)

We visited the fabric shop today and I found this lovely fabric for our Christmas table cloth, I couldn’t resist… Eeek, do you know Christmas is less than 4 months away?? (Because I didn’t, I somehow thought I had all the time in the world…)

Last week was a special celebration for our sweet Jen. Jen and I spent an afternoon baking a pink cake together…

Remember the finches that recycled the Weaver nest? Their family has grown and they have all left the nest, it came down in the tremendous wind we had today… I just love how they reused this nest for their family.

Real blustery weather today, the leaves all came off the trees and collected near our front door…

PS I will soon have the apple cozy pattern translated into Spanish, for all our Spanish readers:)

There is still time to join the International Sending Love Heart Swap if you would like to take part:)
We are up to 82 participants at the moment.

    hi – you must be mistaken. Christmas cannot possibly be 4 months away. I’m glad your back/neck are getting better. Same with the chickens!!

    I’m thinking of Christmas now, too…oh my goodness. I’m sure our husbands think we’re nuts for thinking about it all so “early”, as if it all happens magically! Aiming to keep things simple this year…I say that every year! Love this post…little snippets from your life.

    Four months away? I had best pick up my knitting & crafting pace. Four months is not much time at all to make gifts for 5 children. Gulp.

    So happy to hear that you are on the mend. You, *and* the hens.

    And the pink cake is beautiful.

    I just LOVE the photos of your girl buried in chickens! And glad that your Myrtle is looking better.

    Your simple cake is an inspiration.

    Blessings, Debbie

    glad you and the chick are feeling better! That cake looks good. I was pleased to see a note about the heart swap I thought I may have missed something!

    Glad to hear you and the chicks are on the mend. Beautiful cake. When you say that Christmas is less than 4 months away it makes it seem like….oooh I best get busy! Have a great day. Many Blessings from Tennessee!

    I love all the chickens in her lap. I didn’t know they were so friendly.
    I am happy to hear Myrtle is doing better.
    I love, love, love the fabric.

    Im glad your little chicks are all getting better, it is hard to know what is wrong with them? Glad you are getting better as well it must have been a strain not being able to spin or knit or crochet let alone any other normal activities of the day. PS I am posting my parcel to my swap partner tomorrow 🙂

    Good to hear you’re feeling better. I’ve pulled something in my neck and I am thinking I’ll need to go to the chiro too. They work some miracles!

    Erin drowning in chickens – how delightful. A pile of pullets. And let us not speak of Christmas until this wedding is over, shall we? I can feel the seams of my mind stretching just a teeny-weeny bit too far . . .
