Bad Weekend....

Hi Girls..

Quick post today to let you know I haven't disappeared. Things are just a bit unsettled here with the dark and gloomy weather we've had the past week that makes picture taking a real chore as the lighting has been terrible and then to top things off, my Mom who is 76 years old slipped and fell on her icy driveway around noon on Saturday and she broke her left hip.

She's in the hospital and is having surgery this morning at 7:30 so I'm up and getting ready to head to the hospital to see her before she goes into surgery and will probably be at the hospital most of the day.

Hopefully things will go OK, which I'm sure they will be, but it's going to be very rough on her, me and my siblings over the next several weeks as we deal with this problem as she recovers. I'll try to post and visit all of you when I can but if I'm missing in action for longer than normal, you know why.

Before I leave for the hospital, just want to share a few pics of a new treasure I purchased on one of my online shopping jaunts.

Found this sweet set of hand painted glass jars that sit on little curricular hand painted stand. One of the jars was missing it's lid, but that was no big deal to me. I love the soft robin's egg blue background color and of course the pink roses.

I have this in my home office sitting on a bookshelf and will probably use it to hold paperclips and such. Don't you love it!!

Well, times flying and I need to throw a load of clothes in the dryer then it's off for a long day at the hospital.

See you soon!

Sending prayers for a speedy recovery. I know how difficult this can be on a family. My father broke his hip a few years ago. I hope the surgery goes well and before you know it she will be back on her feet again.
Hugs and Prayers Caroline

Keep looking at your pretty things to help you stay positive, Kim! Therapy will be the hardest part for your mom. Hopefully one of your siblings can help her with that! I'm no good at helping with therapy! I'm too soft! ♥

Oh my Kim, I hope that your Mom is doing well after her surgery. My 94 year old aunt had the same thing happen just one week ago. Keep us posted.
