Merry Christmas to All!

Just a quick holiday posting......Would like to wish happy holidays to all!!!

It's a very snowy Christmas in hand is now in a nice RED cast to go along with holiday cheer lol...3 weeks of this cast then one more will be put on, full recovery expected in 6 weeks.
I am missing my creative endeavors due to this surgery but know this time will pass quickly.

So revised report on my fusing ;-))) which was kewl to hear....the pre-op girl gave wrong info. I had a bone on bone situation which was turned around by cleaning up the shred's of bone then a pillow was formed by gristle ;-0 (fat?) tendons rearranged to hold this all in place? who actually knows but my fave Doc Snyder? I trust him to do me right ;-)
The cast has me thrown....the orange fingers are lovely lol lol....and the purples,yellows and blue? Weds I get new cast? Then Thursday back to work.....hope my classroom is still there...never imagined having to take this long off.....;-( can you spell FRUSTRATION?

Off to the hospital I go...

So today I have surgery on my hand...(minor I would think it is called?) I have to have a bone fused due to pain from bone on bone, getting old. Not looking forward to having a cast for 3-6 weeks? I am very glad the surgery is on my right hand and I AM left handed! I know though I am going to learn very quickly how much I use/need my right hand. ;-((( oh well........
Yesterday though was exciting.....took delivery of my new huge baby! the possibilities?? now to find the time to try them all...since we have the room right now I had it set up in full size which is wow!!! huge!!! sadly due to my surgery this morning I will probably be staring at it wishfully for a few weeks........

Wow where did the time go?

So wow just noticed I have been sadly much to busy or tired to post! I've been teaching 6 classes a day of clay to the students this week, so I came home very tired. I am having surgery on my right hand next week (luckily I am left handed, I am having a bone fused that connects to my thumb) thus I have very busy getting clay lessons out of the way and then am having to plan lessons for my sub to present Tues -Friday.

Thanksgiving came and was so much fun! My children and grandson all came to VA for the first time for a holiday. It was so nice not having to be the one to have to pop in the car for a 9 hour drive to celebrate a family gathering. We had Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room then off to the family room for early Christmas since we will not all be able to gather together in MI this year. I gave each of the boys a Duck art creation....of course created by me....(This was a private joke between Brian and me that sort of bloomed...) What do you think?
Anyway this coming week is just as busy...besides my hand surgery I am also taking delivery of my new HQ16!!!! very excited about that though frustrated that I also will probably have to just stare at it for a few weeks till my hand recovers or at least I get rid of the cast.
