An Eventful Weekend

Well life does have it's twists and turns. I am no longer working as of Friday. I thought it best to take early retirement and stay home with DH. Evidently it was a good idea as we spent yesterday evening from 5:45 Pm until 11:45 PM in the emergency room yesterday. DH said he pulled a muscle in his back on Friday and last evening he was in so much pain that he had tears in his eyes. He told me that the pain was radiating around to the front of his chest so just to be on the safe side, we went to the hospital. I know he was feeling bad when he asked me to take him as he hates the hospital. Thankfully it was not his heart though. I can't figure what he did but when he woke up from his nap on Friday he was complaining. The MD said it was a muscle strain of the muscle right under his shoulder blade and that is why it hurt him so bad when he coughed or took a deep breath. The gave him some Percocet and an IV anti-inflammatory drug - Toradol. They sent him home with the Percocet but was did not want to give him anymore anti-inflammatory drugs because of his impaired kidney function. He is doing better today. Still hurting but not as bad. It always seems to be something. smile !!!

Today was a nice relaxing day. I made a nice roast chicken dinner for us and even managed to get some stitching done. I have to say, it is nice to know that I don't have to go to work tomorrow. i finally finished up my ornie for the Brides Tree SAL, I am behind so here is my April Bunny. I think he is cute.

I also finished my part in a RR for Jayne's Attic. I just love the butterflies. here is my part and the whole RR piece. I think she said the designs were from UK's Crazy for Cross Stitch. I just love the colors

This piece is the Lavender Morning by Chatelaine from the October, 2006 issue of Gift of Stitching magazine. I finally managed to put the beads on it and now all I have to do is frame it. I changed some of the bead and floss colors. So I guess you could say I made it my own.

This last one was a fun one. "Whatever !!!" is my answer to everything, it drives my DH mad. LOL He kind of growled at me when he saw what I was stitching. I told him I was going to hang right in front of his eyes so he would never forget it. I won't repeat his comment. ROFLMBO !!!

Best Wishes for your hubby Dusty, enjoy your quality time at home with him.

The RR looks wonderful, those butterflies are lovely. The thread for 'whatever' is very nice and the April bunny is a real cutie.

Hi Dusty
You’ve got a blog I didn’t know so I have just had a lovely 30 mins reading back through all your entries. I hope and prayer your DH will improve and that you both enjoy your retirement. Mike and I love being together all day and look forward to our coffee midmorning in the conservatory it’s become quite a habit with us. Your stitching is absolutely glorious and that Christmas set of hardhanger is amazing, you are such a clever stitcher. Wish you lived near me and you could teach me! Yes!! that Margaret Sherry design nearly drove me mad and it didn’t help that the cat I chose had two different colour strands for the body part so I had to keep stopping to make sure they weren’t twisted, grrrr
I am looking forward to Lynn’s it looks a lot easier!
Happy stitching and happy retirement
