Lame blog

I haven't been posting much lately, which frustrates me a bit because I would like to have a friendly, happy place for people to visit. Short posts that come few and far between don't make for a very enticing blog. I've been dealing with a health issue for the past few weeks, though. I've been uncomfortable and often in pain, and now as it turns out, I need surgery to make it better, which I found out today has been scheduled for Thursday! As in, two days from now! This gives me little time to prepare, but I am determined to get my linen, floss, needles, hooks, and yarn in order, as well as my stack of books and my Netflix queue to keep me busy while I recuperate. I can't rely on my husband to know what I need. I can see me trying to tell him what supplies I need: "No dear, not the knitting needles. The crochet hooks. What do you mean, what's the difference?"

Needless to say, I haven't tackled that basement of mine yet (and I am horrified to see that those three photos of my basement I posted on Flickr are in the top 6 of most viewed photos in my photostream. Why? Why?) Maybe in March, when I am hopefully feeling better.

I'm supposed to be home by Thursday night (even though I'll be having general anesthesia--they don't keep you for anything these days), but I have no idea how I'll be feeling. Chances are my convalescence won't be blog-worthy.

I leave you with heart-happy valentine photos, most of which I took last year, with the exception of the felted hearts. I started experimenting with felting crochet before I started feeling sick, but didn't get very far with them.

Hope to be back in this space soon. Meanwhile, I will continue to visit your blogs to brighten my days!

I am very sorry to hear you have been in such discomfort but I am glad you are having prompt surgery to fix it.

I love those heart jelly looking things on your window. So cheerful with the snow outside!

And sadly, now you have tempted me to find your photostream next time I log on to flickr to see what all this hubbub about the basement is. Aren't basements supposed to be cluttered and spooky?!

Your blog *is* a friendly and happy place, otherwise I wouldn't have it on my google reader ;-).

I hope your day surgery goes well and takes care of the pain you've been experiencing. And I wish you a speedy recuperation =).

I'm really sorry you've been dealing with this, and I have to say that you do have a friendly cheerful place here, no matter how frequently you post. More is good, but if posting frequency dips... don't sweat it, we'll keep checking!

The top cross-stitch is adorable! where did you get the pattern?

I hope your surgery goes well and you have a speedy recovery!

I agree with Leila, I love coming to your blog (and Leila's too) no matter what the frequency of posting is. God knows I am guilty of infrequent posting myself these days.

Thinking of you today, hopefully you are home and resting/sleeping in your own bed by now.

Your cross stitching is beautiful. I don't think I've ever been able to even finish something! I'm so sorry to hear you're needing surgery, I hope it went well today. (((hugs)))
