A Little Off Kilter

Sort of off kilter this week.  I had a little skin cancer surgery.  The doctor told me that I was having a mini face lift in order to pull it all back to together.  Of course that would only be on one side!!  Not to worry, it will be down to its usually droopy self in a month or two.  All bandaged up in the meantime.

It has actually hurt quite a bit more that I thought it would, but now it’s just itching, itching, itching!!!  I’m bummed though because I had to miss a cake decorating class AND a sewing lesson.  I am just about finished with my spring table runner.

Last week we discovered that an old friend we knew from California, and hadn’t seen for at least ten years, has been living in the next town over from ours.  We were talking to a mutual friend and found out this delightful news.  We got in touch and she came over for dinner and some Mexican Train dominoes.  What fun we had.  She brought me these beautiful flowers.

Aren’t they pretty!

Well, since I’m supposed to relax and not do anything strenuous (no lifting, bending, exercising, sweating, etc.) for the next two weeks.  Yes, she actually said two weeks.  This is what I’m doing.

Sitting by the pool with LOTS of sunscreen on and under an umbrella.  No more skin cancer for me.

Sugar is enjoying it too.

Sorry this next picture is so dark. but this is out front looking down our street.  It was a lovely sunset.

 So that’s what is going on around here.  Not much at all.

Life is Good!

    Thanks for your anniversary wishes. Best of luck on the skin thing. I know friends of mine had the same thing, and done well. In fact, they don’t even have a scar long term.

  12. Sorry to hear of your surgery!! Too bad I’m not closer. When I have my carpel tunnel fixed, we could sit by your pool and sip margaritas! Meanwhile, I hope you have a good book to read. Take care!

  13. Bless your heart. Sheesh–I hope you are able to take it easy and do stay out of the sun! :}

  14. Oh my Ellen! I’m so sorry to hear about this! Hope you are feeling better!! Did you recently switch over to wordpress? I don’t know why your blog wasn’t showing up on my feed…very strange! Anyway, I hope that I have fixed it!! Have a nice weekend! Love your pup’s pic too!! xo
