How are all of you on this rainy Sunday?
Well it's rainy here in GA and has been for a very long time. I need some sunshine but will just have to wait it seems.
The soggy view out my front door!
If you follow me on Facebook then you know that I hurt my back over a week ago. I was watching Rosemary and we were on the floor playing. I got up and picked her up and when I stood up straight...ding ding ding...pain. Lower back. I was able to hold her while I sat in my glider until her Dad picked her up. I thought a few days and my back would be better, but it wasn't. Sara and Blake found a friend to watch the baby the two days a week I've been doing it for the month of Nov. I miss my sweet girl but I could not safely watch her. It's been a about 10 days and I'm slowly getting better. No lifting, bending or carrying anything the least bit heavy.
Sara and Rosemary come over every few days to check on me and take care of anything I can't/shouldn't do. (this photo is from Halloween, Sara doesn't always wear a wolf hat).
I am so thankful for my sweet daughter as she has been here for me and made sure I had time to heal. I haven't seen Tiger in over a week so Tue I am going over for supper. Can't wait!
So what have I been doing?
A LOT of this...reading and I even felt up to a trip to the library yesterday...yay me!
A whole LOT of this...I had to buy a heating pad! I can't believe I didn't own one, but now I do!
and a bit more of this then I normally do also!
Not just The Walking Dead of course, but they better let me know tonight is Glenn dead or not??
Music of course helps and I can't tell you how much I LOVE this new CD from Don Sparks & Dan Bonis. It is like you are sitting around with friends playing guitar and singing. Truly awesome. Don is the husband of Claudia who blogs at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. They are two of the most awesome folks I've come to know through blogging. Claudia recently lost her Father and has been dealing with a lot, but is home now and I hope starting to heal. Anyway, check out this CD HERE. You can listen to some tracks and judge for yourself, but its awesome! (Say It Twice is my favorite track right now). If you love James Taylor, Lyle Lovett or Tom Rush you will love this! Don is also a wonderful actor and was recently on The Good Wife.
As my back has been feeling better I've done a little work on some pocket letters.
This one is for a swap on Facebook Pocket Pals.
I was thinking of hosting a pocket letter swap for Christmas but because of my back, I didn't feel like I could commit to it right now. My good friend Deb at Garage Sale Gal is hosting one and I would love it if you would check it out and join in! Here is the link to the swap post...you have until Nov 11th to sign up. First timers are welcome!
I just found some Christmas washi tape at Dollar Tree and some great stickers, so I'll be working on a few Christmas pl's this week.

Deb's inspiration PL on her blog!
Mom has been doing well and healing up from her oral surgery. I was able to drive her to the Dr last Monday and if she needs anything Sara has offered to help. I think we will make a short trip to the store tomorrow, but no buying anything heavy!
So what have you been up too?
Wishing you JOY,
