Hello!



Hello from Oklahoma!

I'm am starting on my fourth month since my shoulder surgery and it has been a long four months.  Everything is going great except for a small set back in the last two weeks.  They said I was "overambitious" with my home therapy.  Consequently, I am on no therapy right now until I have an MRI the 18th.  But, I'm sure it will all be alright.  I am limited as to what I can do with my right arm.  The computer is one thing that really sets off pain in the shoulder.  

Anyway, hopefully I will be back into the blogging world on a more regular basis.


Hoping you all had a happy 4th of July.  I went with Tiffany, Adam and the kids out to Adam's brother's home in the country.  They grilled and the kids all had fun with the fireworks.

Oklahoma weather has been just awful for the past few months.  We had record amounts of rain with lots of flooding - none affecting my or Tiff's home.  But so much damage and destruction was caused.  We went from chilly and wet to record degree heat.  All of the flowers and foliage are so confused!


Painted this shutter a few years ago and still enjoy it.


I always especially enjoy my Coca Cola sign at this time of the year.



Don't know if you remember or not, but I have this obsession with transferware.  I have brown, red and blue.  This is the shelf in my dining room with some of the brown.

Since I was able to drive about a month ago, I have been going to estate sales.  Last week, I went to one and they had this gorgeous set of 179 pieces of brown transferware!!!  I put a bid in on it because I would not have paid what they were asking.  The pattern was Masons Vista.

Imagine my surprise when they called and said I had won the bid.  OMG  I was so thrilled!  Then, I had the sobering thought that I had to call Tiffany and ask her to go with me to get it because I couldn't lift any of it.  She just shakes her head when I do something like that.  So, it was amazing.  About a dozen different pitchers, bowls, platters and place settings for 12.

So, even tho I can't do alot with my arm, I still can shop.  Tiff has kinda grounded me. (just kidding).

So good to have heard from so many of you checking on me.  I'm on the mend (I think)!

Enjoy,

Judy

    1. Believe it or not, I got all of it for $100. Some pieces have small chips but probably not over 6 pieces. I was in the right place at the right time. I really didnt think they would take the bid. But.......Thanks for dropping by.

    1. I'm planning on good news. The dr said I was overly ambitious". Silly man! LOL. Thanks for dropping by

  14. So good to see a blog post from you again, Judy! Overly ambitious with the PT on your shoulder...lol, you can't win, can you? Seems like either not enough or too much. I've had a partial rotator cuff tear but thank God I didn't need surgery; however, went through 9 months of PT. I've heard how painful shoulder surgery is and I know the recovery takes a long time. I hope you get good news from your MRI!

  15. Thanks Melanie for dropping by. I had such a bad year that they had to graft the whole thing back together. So I'm just hoping that nothing has torn loose. Anxious to see if MRI shows anything. I'm thinking positive that I just overdid.

    WoW!

    Take good care of you.
