Unexpected Turn of Events

Daffodils are starting to bloom in Eastern NC.

I had planned to visit and stay a few days with my daughter while she had outpatient surgery last week.  She was scheduled for laparoscopic surgery but it turned into major surgery along with a three-day hospital stay.

I ended up staying longer than planned, but wanted to make sure she was doing well, able to shower and moving around before I left.  She was a real trooper and did extremely well thanks to her doctor and the staff at Durham Regional Hospital.

It’s going to take me a while to get caught up and back into the groove in the studio. I have a stack of mail to go through and chores to catch up on. Pog is wonderful and kept everything running smoothly while I was gone. He was glad to have me home again.

Sadie has been glued to me since I got back. She missed me and is very happy now that we are getting back to normal. 

Sadie and her favorite toy - a pink string!
I am tired but glad to be home in my own bed and my things around me. I took my quilting with me and managed to get some of it done. I also bought the first two seasons of Downton Abbey so we could catch up on shows I had missed while she was recuperating.

Maybe this weekend I can catch up on blogs I follow and what everyone has been working on!

Wishing everyone a safe, warm and cozy weekend!
