Countdown ...

I have two more scheduled visits for physical therapy and then I am done. At the end of last week, I had reached 105 degrees of flexion and on Wednesday was able to achieve flexion of 110. Today? 112. The goal is 115 by the end of next week. Oh my!

Crafting Fool

I love pressure, just not on my right knee. Yesterday, I sat down and made two cards - a baby card and an anniversary card AND a gift box. The cards were Iris Fold cards from SVG Cuts Iris Fold collection. Those are always a little time consuming, so I was surprised that I sat as long as I did. Until I tried to get up. That right knee isn't always cooperative.

Anyway, here are pictures of my projects. The anniversary card is for my husband. We celebrated 33 years today (September 28th.)

The Hot Tub

Well, it is finally in, electrified, passed inspection and tested and approved. On Monday, the electrician followed by the inspector, made a visit to our house and got us up and running. After a couple minor glitches  - a couple of loose fittings - DH and I decided to test out our tub. OMG! Nirvana! Heaven! Whatever you want to call it, we are there!

Wow! The Light is Bright!

DH looks like he's being attacked by the Vashta Nerada!
The only thing I noticed is that my built in buoyancy compensators cause me to float a bit. I have a hard time not floating when on the lounge part. 

For you Dr. Who fans out there, in the lower picture, Hubby looks like he's being attached by the Vashta Nerada! Who turned out the lights?

My replaced right knee is loving the spa treatment!

A Nutty Project

I love this card from SVG Cuts Caramel Apple Pie collection, and thought I would make it is a birthday card. I opted not to do an interior cut, and am happy with the way it turned out. I used my Sizzix Texture Boutique to emboss the dots.

You Never Know What You'll See ...

This photo was taken the weekend of the Fall Fun Fest here in town. I took it with my camera phone at a small grocery store.  Yeah, barbecue cook-offs are hot here!
