I am so sorry to have been away this long. What was supposed to be a short break from cooking and gardening has now turned into six weeks due to a major operation I had about three weeks ago to fix a back and neck problem I have had for quite awhile. I was supposed to do this last year but due to Madame Mere's arrival and Lucy's passing away I had postponed it twice, only to make it worse and more complicated. The recovery is expected to last four or six weeks meaning lots of bed rest, pain medication, no driving, no lifting or bending, short walks and no chores except "simple meal preparation". That means no gardening either, something that frustrates me as Fall is my favorite time of the year to work in the garden. To say I am bored, depressed and frustrated is a major understatement.
I don't know exactly when I will be back as even pressing the computer keys is painful. Yesterday I tried to color with the grandchildren and spent the rest of the day on pain medication, so a long post is not in the cards right now. I do read your posts and appreciate your emails but forgive me for not commenting or writing back.
I miss blogging and interacting with all of you so I will try to figure something out to stay in touch. I shall return as soon as I can but I don't have my next appointment with the doctor until mid October when hopefully I will get "cleared" to do more stuff. Driving would be a nice start...and Maddy desperately needs grooming. She's beginning to look like Rod Stewart!
In any event, sooner or later I will return!
