It All Started When...

You probably wondered why I hadn't posted since March. I have no excuse for the time period between March 17 and April 15 of this year. Perhaps it was lack of motivation or creativity taking a vacation. Or I was still suffering from the doldrums and hadn't found my 'Spring' wings yet.

Now back to 'it all started when'...  First my husband's car developed a steering fluid leak. To the repair shop and a $2000 bill later.

Second, a bird flew into the roof vent for our stove hood and apparently got stuck. It could be heard off and on for 2 or 3 days making a racket, then silence. It must have escaped because there has not been any bad smell coming from the stove hood. 

Third, the worst thing happened. My husband Jerry suffered a stroke. He spent about 3 weeks in the hospital but he's been home now for a week and is well on the mend. The doctor was surprised and pleased at yesterday's office visit because my husband walked into the wheel chair or walker to assist! We are praising the faithfulness of YHVH for carrying us through this!

I came home from the hospital at 1 AM the first night Jerry was there and drove through deep puddles in our driveway. Yep, you guessed it. Something happened to the wiring in my car and the dome light wouldn't go out. If something wasn't done, it would cause the car's battery to drain. And I needed the car to get back to the hospital in the morning. Panic! Who could I call at 1 in the morning to fix it? Again, asking Heavenward, the idea came to take the light bulb out of the socket. Whew! I'm not the mechanical type so this was a major breakthrough for me. LOL

And lastly, while hubby was in the hospital, the thermostat for the furnace stopped working. 

You know that saying 'stop and smell the roses'? Well, it's too early for roses in our area so I'll just show you some spring flowers from my garden.

I forgot I planted these. These minis are about the size of a quarter.

One of my favorite sights in the spring.
 Hugs to all my followers. I won't be so long in posting next time. Have a great week!

  1. So sorry to hear about your husband. I'm glad to hear that he's doing well. My dh had a minor stroke back in September, and it was very frightening. Hopefully things will settle down now and you can enjoy some stitching!!!
