Thank goodness for trash bags

Hi peeps! Just checking in for a minute to make sure you are behaving :-) It has been a quiet week for me but poor DH took the week off and has been holding down the fort and I know when Monday comes around he will be running out the door to go to work. LOL. Cooking,answering phones, caring for Angell who has been a real pickle, waiting on me who was cranky and anxious to get on my feet again, poor guy is exhausted. I must say he is an excellent caregiver. Being served meals was new for me but now, after day five days of it I'm kinda liking it. Just when I'm starting to move about on my own again. All I can say is thank goodness for cozy beds, wheatable crackers, lip balm, humidifiers and trash bags that fit over a leg for bathing.
 Ellen stopped by to visit and gave me a copy of her new book which I've been drooling over since.  Beautiful color photos break down each flower and I really want to be using a sewing machine right now. Thanks Ellen!
The only stitching I accomplished was this...poor picture, sorry.
 One more week and I get the bandages off. I peeked at the photos of the process and it freaked me out so I won't be sharing those. You're welcome. I had better get back to bed before swelling begins. Everything in moderation! Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
