I am no longer a double nickel. Monday found me edging closer to the 60 mark. 56 never felt so good. Of course, if I keep getting new parts I will be better than new eventually! But believe me, I do not plan on any more replacement parts.
Not all of my birthday gifts are in yet, but here is the first haul.
Moving to a colder clime demands more effective shoe wear. And after hip replacement, my body demands easy-on shoes. The casual shoes have elastic cords that are non tie, so easy slip on and off. The boots are not going to be easy on, but I will just have to make sure there is a person to help me tie one shoe when I wear them. The lady at the shoe shop had to help me try on the bottom boots. LOL!
My other gift is for the house. I am wanting to change colors in my bedroom, so this house will have a red/navy theme in the master. I just love this set.
I already bought some red towels, so just need to pick up a few navy sets and maybe few beige sets. It’s so hard choosing colors for a house that isn’t built. I thought I wanted to go with Pantone Greenery for my walls, but now that I went a totally different way in bedding, I will leave the original beige wall as is.
My knitting mojo is still hanging on! Of course, it’s only hats being cranked out, but as soon as I finish the last 2 I will be on to baby sweaters.
Last bunny hat, not sure I have enough red! And chemo cap for a friend.
Update on life: This momma is one happy hen, all her chicks are now in the same city!! My sister joined all 4 of us for dinner Sunday to celebrate my birthday. It was just like old times, with laughter and sarcasm abounding. Diva Girl has had 2 days of classes and she says she loves her new campus. Knowing how much she loves big cities, I am sure that is part of it. She is exploring downtown Indy here and there and learning all the best haunts. Momma can now relax.
