today i am going to be sitting again and cross monday i go to get cast off i hope. my fingers are crossed that it will be allowed. i am so scared that the fusion did not take again. but time will tell.

chance seems to be growing he can no longer fit on my roll about comfortably. it is sooo funnny.

bruiser had to be outside with mike while it was raining..wanted to come in and lay on the couch.

saturday we went and saw something about steve...i was getting down and needed an uplift and getting out of the house. long rides are not comfortable for me and i can't walk much cause all the blood goes into my toes if i am walking. it just hangs there.... that gets uncomfortable. so the movies got me out..made me feel kinda normal...and gave me something stupid to laugh at.

going to cross stitch..have a great day.

well today i was going to post pictures of my retreat jacket and the wonderful purse i made there. but my camera is dead so that is not possible. so i will be posting another day those and some of the hexagon parts i have. i am thinking of doing a swap with nickle quilt sqares so that i can make a few more charm totes.

i smell the steak and potatoes that are on the grill so going to leave this for now. have a wonderful day.

well i thought i would post a picture of the stray that turned into a pet. mike wanted to call him last i am just calling him is a picture of him...sooo irks me that people are so rude to throw out a cat like this. he was sick, enough to take him to the vets, but he loves people and other animals...we have two other cats and a dog. i think he came into our life to replace the other dog that passed two weeks ago. is his pic. i love his racoon type tail.

Here is a picture taken last month of our younger dog bruiser. he thinks he has to sit on the chairs outside i guess since he sits on the couch in here. Mike took this since i had surgery and could not walk but wanted to me to see. Two sweet men in my life...
