Ramblings and Updates

Hi everyone..

Well lots going on around here.. Some good , some not so good!!!

DH had his pacemaker replaced(4th time..... he now has Wing Commander Stripes!)

That went well.but..... this morning he went out to the garage and after awhile I heard what I thought was hammering? I decided to go see what he was up to.... he was not"up" he was down on the floor and couldn't get up. Door caught his slipper and tripped him and he went flying into my car! I was worried he might have pulled his stitches out... That part was OK.... He scraped his elbow, leg and the glasses cut his nose before they went flying!! Can you stand it!!!

He is OK now and has gone off shopping and to gas up my car.... I hesitated to let him go but he said he was OK... Fingers crossed.

MY...dilema was another nosebleed lastnight. I finally got it stopped but my nose feels one inch longer from pinching.YIKES! I was worried as the last one I had DH had to call 911 as I couldn't get it to stop! Thank goodness no rides in the big white truck with the flashing lights was needed! ha!!!!

Now a happy bit of news....

I thought I would show you my latest rug hooking effort...This one took awhile and I was not too pleased with the drawing so I changed it here and there.This was my 3rd large piece and I hope I am improving!

Right now I am learning to shade and my project is "iris" I will show it when I am done.
I am also working on a coup;e of beading pieces... Stay tuned..
It is a lovely mild sunny day and I hope to go for a walk..

toodles for now

So sorry to hear about yours and your husbands health issues Maggie.You must have had such a shock seeing your husband lying on the garage floor.
Glad you didn't have to have a trip in the ambulance this time.
Hope you can relax and make something to take your mind off things.

Maggie,sorry to hear your not being well and your husbands fall after surgery.
the magical fairy's of old Perth commands you good health and no more nosebleeds!

spreading pixie dust in the air for Maggie the lady fair,
Good health, much wealth and I can't think of much else.

Here you share your tale,
without a whimper or wail.

I hope this little poem I write,
brings much smile's
with lots of sunshine's bright with no nosebleeds for a long while

For our Maggie the lady fair
to whom we all do care.
I know pathetic but i am not a rhymer or a poem writer.

Hope to see you posting again, much ado to a lovely lady and friend.

I am glad all turned out well in the end. Isn't it fun becoming seniors. If I had known it would be this good I would have stopped at 50 and reversed the years.

Just kidding - life is good and I am glad of every day - good and bad.

Hugs to you both
