Today is my birthday and it is gonna be pretty low key compared to last years big 5-0 festivities...but that is good! I like low key! We are heading to Windsor this afternoon so that I can go to Michaels and pick up a few things to start an art journal. I can blame it all on this post by Dena but then when I was at Bella central a few days ago I got to see her journal up close and personal and thought to myself I NEED to explore this. She directed me to a couple websites and I can't wait to get started...Although I can't really JOURNAL anything yet, I might be able to glue paper.
You might remember last year I made myself this b'day card and obviously I can't do that again this year but I can show you the card that Paula gave me! She posted it on her blog here but it can't hurt to showcase it again. I'm not kidding when I say this reminds me soooooooooooo much of Paula...it perfectly captures her spirit except she would be singing at her desk instead of at a piano and that would be Nicky and Pebbles beside her...Daisy is likely off getting into trouble somewhere!
Now for a little wrist update. I have a new fiberglass cast! What do ya think of that hot pink color? It is pretty close to RV34! LOL!
There were about 6 colors to choose from and I soooooooooo wanted to ask to see samples but there were a lot of people there and I didn't want to be a pain. They took xrays again and was told the bone is in a good position to heal so that is good. My thumb is still tingly but has feeling and seems to be a bit better. I got a glimpse of the xray and the screw looks HUGE...he did say that it will likely have to come out but i'll worry about that later. This cast is much lighter and much more comfortable. My thumb is still imobilized but I have a bit more movement in my fingers since this cast is below the nuckles. however, typing is still very ackward and uncomfortable because I have to hold my arm in a weird position with my elbow up to get my fingers to the keyboard. It is not something I could do for any great length of time...hence the hiatus from my day job as a programmer!
Over the past couple weeks I have also gotten some beautiful (and some just plain funny and cute!...BEV and MAXINE!) cards and emails and I want to thank you all for that!!!! They make me smile and I'll be using them all for inspiration when I get back to colouring and making cards again.
Till next time, have a great day!
