For about three weeks now I have been in a lot of pain with my hip. I went and had it X-rayed this past Thursday and it showed advanced arthritis. Walking is difficult. The options they gave me are not workable for me, and I am praying and hoping for a solution. A lot of doors are now "slammed shut", but at least my hands still work, and I can work on my Prayer Shawls for the hospital. My kitties have been most helpful during this time, as is my son. He made a delicious Breakfast Casserole this morning, and has taken on more household chores than usual. I would appreciate your prayers, so that I may continue to do God's Will.
Hope you have a most blessed Sunday.

My daughter has returned safely from England. She arrived at her home yesterday evening and I got to talk to her this afternoon. She had a wonderful trip, but seems glad to be home and a bit jet-lagged. Her dog is very glad to see her too, and so are her two cats!! Have a Blessed Sunday~

I love the photo above. I found in on the internet, on Weather Underground. I have no way to contact the photographer, but the name listed is ichbenhier. The photo reminds me of home. Across the river is Sarnia, Canada. When the steel mill was operating, there was always a dark "cloud" over Sarnia. The ship is a thousand footer, carrying freight. I used to feel very comforted in the night when I was a child and it was foggy and a ship would say "Beeeee" and there would be an answering "Beee-Ohhhh". We lived about four miles from the Blue Water Bridge. My Dad was a Customs Inspector on the Bridge. Good memories. Living in NC, I don't get to visit Michigan anymore. Uncle George used to say "You gotta be tough to live in Michigan". But it will always be home to me.

On a different note...we had to replace our 20 year old refrigerator this week. We got it from Lowes of Mt.Airy, and the sorry delivery men just left it in the middle of the kitchen floor, asked me to sign their paper, and LEFT! I wanted to cry, but my son and I managed to get it into place. Actually, to give credit where credit is due, Donald did 99.99% of the work!
Have a blessed Sunday!

Tomorrow is my 65th Birthday. Just another day I suppose, but it seems special to me. Sixty-five years is a milestone. After my husband died, right after my 50th Birthday, I didn't figure I'd have that many more Birthdays, but here I am. Shizuku-chan (our cat), and I celebrate our Birthdays on the same day. She will be 16 tomorrow, and was born in Ei-cho, Japan, when my daughter was living there and teaching English in the local elementary schools. Sixteen is old for a cat, but she gets around pretty good, and her eyes are clear and bright. She and I are just "two old girls". I hope that she and I have a few more years to make a difference. Hope Spring has arrived where you are. It is looking "hopeful" here!

My son and I usually stop by the Elkin Goodwill Store on Saturdays. Today he found this plush, stuffed moose head. It seemed to be attracting a lot of attention, and Donald said that he had to keep two old ladies from grabbing it away from him. Just plain strange. Actually, I kind of like the moose and named him "Mr. Moose" after the moose on Captain Kangaroo, the kid's show on tv in the 1950's (remember that?). I didn't do so well, and only found a "Peter Rabbit" (Beatrix Potter) vase and a snack dish that was made in Korea. Both are rather ordinary and not really worth photographing. Well, Spring Break ends tomorrow and both my grown children go back to their jobs at the college on Monday.....unless the bad weather comes in that they are predicting. It has been a very unusual winter. It was 70 degrees today, and ice storm predicted tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday. Spring will come eventually....at least I hope so.

is crocheted. She used bulky yarn, and a size L hook, and this sweater will go to a charity she supports. Since before the Holidays she has been making loomed and crocheted items, such as hats, scarves and afghan squares, etc. I have given her a few things to send, also. These items go to Africa to a group called "Knit-a-Square", an online group that makes clothing items and blankets for AIDS victim's children and orphans.
We had snow on Tuesday, it amounted to about two inches. I love to see the snow, but hate the temps in the teens!! I think everyone I know is hoping for an early Spring this year! God Bless!!
