Paula [Thanks again, Sweet P!] sent me a Pay It Forward package while I've been recouping and it's time to - you know - pay it forward. Everyone who comments or emails me this week will be eligible. I have no cute pets to pick three names - but I'll pick names on Saturday. Paula made a darling little homemade bag - no guarantees of something homemade from me. But I have lots of sewing doodads and kits. Also let me know if you'd be interested in a year's worth of QNM or an old unopened Quilt Engagement Calendar or nickel squares. The catch is that you will then have to Pay it Forward to 3 other people.
I love Pay it Forward. The book is awesome - the movie with Helen Hunt and Kevin Spacey is good - but the book is better! If you haven't read it yet - look for it.
I got to play babies this weekend. G's daughter just had Miss V 11 days ago. Well, yesterday Miss V came by to introduce herself! Boy, you forget they come that little! Holding a 10 day old baby is definitely good for what ails you! The little funny faces and stretches ... the cuddling into your body. What fun! Thanks S & C for your visit - I loved it.
It's been 3 weeks since my knee replacement. I'm happy to say that the pain relief pill switch has finally kicked in - much better. But a 2 am DVD is now in my routine! Something in the middle of the night gets me up and down to the recliner to get comfortable ... I can't sleep there - but have been watching DVDs from my extensive collection! This week end I watched "Deep Impact", "Dave", "In Good Company" and "Pretty Woman". Those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head!
Can we talk about how it is possible for a woman alone in a king-size bed to run out of room? LOL! Well, this has been recovery central for the last 3 weeks - let's take a look at what I'm sharing this space with.
Well, right now there is a digital camera and case and the laptop computer and icy knee wrap. But they're only on the bed when I'm actually using them. PS - I'm NOT listing what's on the bedside table!
In bed with me is: 6 pillows; sheets; 3 quilts; 6 quilt magazines or books; tin of Ritz crackers; box of Puffs; sweatshirt (okay - I just finally warmed up today); 7 get well cards(!); 3 fabric post cards; approximately a 3 inch stack of pages torn from Quilters Newsletter Magazines; a sewing basket that I put peppermints in; 4 fiction books; cordless phone; red canvas belt for exercises; new Lands End catalog; spare glasses; box of papers that I sorted from the sewing room; breathing exercise thingie from hospital; I can't look any further! Let's hope I get this mess organized or else there will be no space for me and my new knee!
