What's Been Happening the Last Several Months

Since the first of the year I've had sciatica. Then I went into physical therapy for it. After 4 months I'm somewhat better but still a burning hurt in my hamstrings. I'm now under the care of a massage therapist who is doing myofascial release for that area of my body. I am uncomfortable much of the time, but I have faith I'll be much better soon.

But during all this I had a meltdown because of being in PT and Chiropractic also. I'm getting better with the crying but I'm still a bit weepy at least every day or two. I'm also very, very tired. I have some women who are a great support for me.

We were planning a trip to California, where hubby would go to Fresno to a model RR train convention and I would stay with our daughter. I decided to stay here in our home. It's an 11 hour trip to the SF Bay area where hubs would leave me with our daughter for 10 days. Then he would travel to Fresno and pick me up on the way back. Just about everyone had me convinced to go so I wouldn't be alone. At the last moment, I sat my hubby down and told him I'd changed my mind. I wanted to stay in my home, my comfort zone. This was terribly important to me.

He left early Monday morning. When he got to Reno he called me and told me he cried pulling away from our home. He was sad leaving me alone. I appreciated his sentiments more than you could ever, ever imagine but I felt good about my decision. I assured him I was fine and he called every day to see how I was doing. I suppose this happens when you're in the twilight years of your life. Sure I cry each day for missing the love of my life for a solid 9 days and pray that we're both well and have no problems. I told him on the phone tonight this is the last time we're apart. No more conventions, only going to visit kids, grandkids and great grandgirls. That's it. It is so much easier being in my own comfort zone, cry alone, go to a local restaurant if I want to and sleep in my own luxurious bed here at home. And I can clean my house and do some projects that have been put on hold for so long. But I'm getting much better and have friends who actually love me very much. I'll be fine. But, yes, it definitely took a lot out of me. I am getting my groove back though, trust me!

If you love red, white and blue kitchens this will get your heart pumping. I think it's fabulous!


And an exotic bedroom on a step-up level is pretty enticing also.


If only I had this large a space to work in! But I don't do a whole lot of crafting anymore.


I've always loved this look on steps and those plants, which the name escapes me at the moment. ;-)


I love this chair—color, tufted back and on wheels also.


This actually looks quite like a shop with its tall wall but it could be a home. Gorgeous idea no matter what.


I very much like vignettes like this.


I actually have one of these little cages in my living room but it has roses in it. Easy way to add pizzazz to a room.


Beautiful Old World gardens.


Clever way to show off your dishes and store them at the same time.


My friend, Rhea, paints these little birdhouses. I am the recipient of one of these, plus a few other painted things she's sent me through the years. They are displayed in various rooms of my home. I love the way she paints. She's very clever and very "neat" in what she does. She's been very sick for a long time and just lost her young hubby to a medical error when he had an appendectomy. I've talked to her on the phone and want to try and keep it up as she's very special to me.


I love the colors of this room, yellow and pink. That is my favorite color combo. Those colors are stunning together.


A very tidy and lovely office and craft room from all the fabrics behind the doors in the dark cabinet. Just beautiful.


Clever and gorgeous way to store trims.


Another idea for a birdcage.
